The 3rd edition of the Topo MTN Racer line the Men's Topo MTN Racer 3 brings together the grip and responsiveness of previous models with increased cushion and toe box space. 


Topo Athletic has always been known for footwear that has a wide forefoot, snug midfoot and secure heel. The Men's Topo MTN Racer 3 brings the Topo fit together with a 5mm drop, Zip Foam™ midsole and Vibram® Megagrip outsole. The MTN 3 Racer includes Topo’s updated proprietary Zip Foam™ material allowing the Men’s MTN Racer 3 to have increasred cushioning without increasing weight. Compared to the original MTN Racer 2 the upper has significantly softer feel while retaining the durability of the engineered mesh. 

Since its release in June 2023 the Men’s Topo MTN Racer 3 has been well received from customers who have enjoyed the previous models of MTN Racers. The increased forefoot volume combined with the increased cushioning has made the MTN Racer 3 go to for trail runners in Salida, Colorado and the mountains in and around Chaffee County. Runners have now used the MTN Racer 3 with high levels of success hiking the Colorado Trail, Continental Divide Trail and running 100 mile Ultras such as the Leadville 100 and High Lonesome 100. 


  • Vibram® Megagrip Outsole

Vibram® created this rubber compound to perform in extreme conditions and that’s why Topo Athletic placed it on their Men’s MTN Racer 3. This compound formed into a 5mm lug pattern means that the nastiest wet and slick terrain can be handled with confidence. The tread is spaced in a manner that allows debris to escape as opposed to accumulating on the outsole.

  • Updated Zip Foam™

A blended EVA and TPU foam that has a nice blend of softness, bounce and durability. The updated Zip Foam™ allow the MTN Racer 3 to have increased cushion without increasing the weight compared to previous MTN Racer models.  

  • Topo Athletic Fit

All Topo Athletic shoes are built on a foundation of wide-forefoot, snug midfoot and secure heel. At 7000 Feet Running Company many customers are looking for forefoot space but don’t want a loose heel and the Topo MTN Racer 3 meets that requirement. An important note about the fit of MTN Racer 3 compared to previous models is that the MTN Racer 3 has more volume in the forefoot.
