These shoes are fantastic for dry weather trail running. They are a great transition shoe so if you run on some road or gravel to get to the trails, they perform very well. I use these mainly on dry, rocky technical trails and they do very well even without a rock plate. Although they will suffice for sloppy, muddy, wet trail conditions, a more aggressive outsole would be awesome (I'm thinking Hoka Speedgoat 2). The upper has been very durable. I have seen the outsole and midsole wear out before the uppar on my previous 3 pairs. This is my 5th pair of Caldera's so you can say that I am one happy customer. The only reason I gave them 4 stars is because the rain has come to my part of the world (Chico, CA) and due to the outsole I can no longer jam down hairpin switchbacks at full speed feeling absolutely confident in the traction. I will buy more of this shoe. Read More

switching to the women's model fixes instability

Many men who otherwise like this shoe have complained of instability on

Many men who otherwise like this shoe have complained of instability on technical descents. I think that's because this shoe has a very wide forefoot, which reduces control. Even though my foot is on the wide side, I experienced the same thing. My tip, for those having this issue, is to see if you can find a women's model in the same length. I switched from a men's 7 to a women's 8.5 (same length, but narrower), and the instability went away. Normally I can't wear women's models because they're too wide, but these are so wide the women's actually works for me (size-wise). Having said all that, the shoe didn't work for me for other reasons: (1) The drop feels like it's more than the listed 4 mm. As a result, on descents, I felt like I was too much up on my toes (I prefer a zero drop, but have been OK with the drop on other shoes listed as 4 mm, e.g., the Nike Terra Kiger). (2) I'm a mid-to-forefoot striker, and land towards the front of the shoe. Given this, I find there's too much taper in the front of the Caldera. As a consequence, I'm landing on a too-thin section of the midsole, leaving me with insufficient protection from rocks and shock. Read More

Just Right

Just received my Caldera and did my usual 4.5 mile 1,800 ft. Loop.

Just received my Caldera and did my usual 4.5 mile 1,800 ft. Loop. Normally running in Ghosts so glad the last feels much the same as the Ghost and the Adrenaline for that matter, but with a more supportive arch and just enough added cushioning so I'm not feeling every sharp stone on the trail. I tried the Cascadia but fit was always a problem, mainly the narrow toe box. The Caldera are great so far and suits my needs for a trail runner perfectly. The toe box matches my foot really well. A new version is being released soon so hope they don't change the last on this one. Read More

I've been rocking challenger atrs for the last 2 years. The caldera is superior in every aspect. The cushioning, the fit (I have paddles for feet), the ride (not mushy). I'm 6'1 215 and can knock out a 10 mile tempo in these without any foot fatigue. Will be my go to this season. Read More
