TOPO WAS STARTED IN 2013 BY TONY POST, BUT THE STORY REALLY BEGAN 40 YEARS EARLIER, ON A RUNNING TRACK IN TULSA, OKLAHOMA.
Born and raised in Colorado, Tony went on to Tulsa, Oklahoma to attend college, on the track and field team he later became captain of which he really fell for running.
With the ambition to always train harder, run faster, Tony moved to Massachusetts and began training with some top runners on Boston's North Shore. Unfortunately, his career as a runner was marred by injuries, overtraining and bad running shoes. Like many other runners, he started working in the shoe industry and began to learn everything he could about making shoes.
After nearly 30 years in the industry, Tony knew there was something missing in the market - a shoe that allowed runners to take advantage of the benefits Natural Running offers while retaining the best elements of a traditional running shoe. With the goal of delivering the absolute best Natural Running Shoes available on the market, Tony started his own shoe brand. This is today Topo Athletic, founded with common sense, simplicity, comfort, for runners seeking a more natural running experience.
