    Design Changes

    2017/07/18 | Seattle |

    I used to run on the original Cascadia, the first iteration. I loved that shoe. As Brooks continued the Cascadia , I believe the shoe Declined. I do not wear that shoe any longer, to heavy, bulky, from the original. I am really frustrated with companies coming out with a great shoe and then changing the design. I have been through 2 other companies over the past 3 years and now back to the brooks Caldera. This is a great show. If you make design changes, make it lighter and make the toe box open like the Topo Mt2. Other than that the platform is great. I hope I do not have to switch companies again when you change the shoe drastically. Thank You, Matt fourwindsexpeditions.com

    Great Road to Trail Shoe

    2017/07/17 | Colorado |

    I've had Adrenaline ASR's for years and really enjoyed the comfort in moving back and forth from trail to road. With Brooks seeming to phase out of the ASRs, I went looking for a new shoe. I tried the standard road Adrenaline GTS, but it was just ok. I've thought for a while that I didn't need the support of the Adrenaline line so I went looking for an alternative road/trail shoe. After trying on a dozen pairs or more, I settled on the Caldera. These are my first fat soled shoes and so far I love them. I ran a good trail test over 14 miles of the continental divide trail and have since done 15 miles of road/trail (gravel) near my house. The Caldera have handled all surfaces well and the cushion feels amazing. I definitely notice the difference in my legs/joints after a long run. So far they seem like the perfect shoes for my combination of road and trail running. I'm waiting to see how they feel after 300+ miles, but so far, so good!

    Best Brooks Hiking/Trail Shoe I've tried so far!

    2017/07/06 | San Diego, CA |

    I have owned the Cascadia, and Addiction trail shoes, but so far the Caldera is the best I have owned. I have taken them out for roughly ten hikes totalling about fifty miles, both on hilly and flat terrain. The grip in rough terrain (rocks and sand) has been really good! There is novelty to the midline cushioning running the length of the shoe. I expected that would result in a higher rate of ankle turns, but that hasn't happened. So the cushioning is an unexpected plus, while still providing a good feel for the trail!

    These shoes have become a body part.

    2017/07/03 | Fairbanks, AK |

    I'm into my third pair of the Caldera's and they just get better everytime! Each pair have given me consistently the same wear mileage of almost 500 miles and even then I still wear them out for hikes as I wear my next pair. Amazing traction throughout its lifespan, and the shoe seriously adjusts to your foot width as you "break" the shoes in. My only suggestion and not even a complaint because the traction is truly amazing, but for the muddy stuff maybe increase the lug depth a milimeter or two. But then no shoe rocks in the mud!

    Good Trail Shoe... Room For Improvement.

    2017/05/09 | Jackson MS |

    The Caldera is a smart buy for those looking to get into trail running that prefer a soft ride. This shoe is noticeably softer and lighter than the Cascadia and Cascadia GTX. Unfortunately I think the Caldera has some room for improvement. I didn't feel confident navigating more difficult terrain because the soft sole and flexible upper felt like it gave too much from side to side especially on loose rocks. The traction was not good enough for very wet muddy trails. Softness is always a tradeoff for support so many soft EVA foam shoes use full frames to compensate. Make sure to use this shoe with a good insert such as a Superfeet insole. Brooks could improve the stability of the shoe by adding a blown rubber midsole similar to the Transcend and improving the outsole for more rugged terrain. Overall this is a good trail shoe, an impressive debut, but has room for improvement. Try it out and look out for V2.

    More Than I Expected

    2017/04/25 | Fairbanks, AK |

    I picked up my first pair of Caldera's in January out of curiosity at a time that I was needing a new trail shoe for longer runs. I was amazed by how well this shoe performed! Running on ice and snow for a lot of the shoes life, it gripped like the Cascadia on dry trails, incredible. The cushion gets better the harder the impact like technical steep downhills and as I increase speed the shoe continues to push forward. I got 540 miles out of my shoes and the only break down was in the upper where normal crease points are and they wore through exposing my foot, not a complaint after 540 miles! I'm now into my second pair and just recently completed a 50 mile race in them that included lots of mud, which the shoes shed very well. My only criticism of the shoe is the lace pocket on the tongue. I lace all the way up through the top eyelet and the lace pocket is completely buried under the laces and is unusable. Could you either make the pocket more accessible or just remove it all together, the extra material gets in the way when I untie the laces and loosen them up. That's it. love this shoe!

    Bounce

    2017/04/22 | Sedona AZ |

    The Brooks Caldera is now my new trail shoe.I have been a Hoka guy since they came out but since Decker took them over the shoes have changed in quality. They used to use a high end EVA now they have gone to a much firmer (cheaper) EVA that is unforgiving and with no energy return, and after only 60 miles the Challenger ATR gets even harder as they flatten out. The Hoka speedgoat is a uncomfortable and unstable shoe and the Stinson ATR is now just a plodding foot coffin from what it used to be. This is where the Brooks Caldera comes in. While it's not as thick as the Hoka Clifton ATR the Caldera's Bio-Mogo EVA is a far superior cushion with great energy return.The shoes actually feel like they give you a bounce! Plus the toe off is excellent giving it a much more fun feel the dead thud of the Hoka. My only negative was when running on a steep side cantor my foot slips more than I would like but it's a minor issue. I used a after market insole that solved the issue. Even though the lugs aren't that deep they provide excellent traction. The Caldera feels light on my feet and in turns makes me run lighter and faster. A very enjoyable ride.
