Topo Athletic Fli-Lyte 2 First Impressions
- Right out of the box, the Fli-Lyte 2 is definitely more flexible than the original Fli-Lyte.
- Similar fit to the original, but the new last seems to run a little longer – might be worth sizing down a half size.
- Updated mesh is breathable, yet nicely structured.
- Less rubber on the outsole provides a much softer ground feel, which personally is a good thing. The exposed EVA shows early signs of “scuffing” but too early to tell if this will affect life of the shoe.
- Tongue felt a little bulky (excess material?) on the first outing in the Fli-Lyte 2, but this seems to have calmed down on subsequent runs.
All-in-all an exciting update which enhances the ride and provides a softer ground feel. Weight, look and fit are all pretty similar to the original, but the out-of-the-box experience and snazzy new colors should make this another winning shoe for Topo Athletic.
