Light, Durable and it's Topo Athletic's Shoe With a (non-carbon fibre) Plate
The word 'Zephyr' means 'a gentle breeze'. And Topo Athletic's Zephyr lives up to its name as it gives you a lightweight, snappy and moderately cushioned package.
Built for long-distance tempo runs on the roads, the Zephyr is also Topo Athletic's entry into the realm of shoes with plates. However, unlike its counterparts with carbon fibre plates, like Hoka One One's Carbon X, the Zephyr sports an elastomer plate in the midsole. The plate provides forefoot and plantar flexion stability. It propels you—encouraging faster turnover, which makes it great for up-tempo runs.
