Responsive Cushioning

The midsole is stacked high to promote a steady stride over long distances, while protecting against trail hazards.

Sticky Traction

Sticky Traction

The sticky rubber outsole and high surface-area lugs provide outstanding traction, uphill and down.

Fast Drainage

Fast Drainage

A protective, double-layered mesh upper allows your feet to expand in comfort over longer runs.

Soft Cushioning

BioMoGo DNA midsole cushioning dynamically adapts to your stride.

Ariaprene™ mesh

The upper combines Ariaprene™ mesh with a Cordura AFT top cloth for maximum ventilation, drainage, and abrasion protection.

3D Rubber Print

A 3D Rubber Print applies strategic stretch and structure for an impeccable fit, enhancing protection and durability in high-abrasion zones. The integrated Gaiter Tab at the heel secures gaiters with a hook and loop. A lace garage keeps laces secure, clean, and out of the way.

Great shoe

Best fitting most comfortable shoe I've worn in years for everyday wear, trail running, road running and hiking. I ordered a 15 and it was too big. Most running/hiking shoes I own are size 15. I then ordered a 14 and it fit as it should. Shoes sizes are all over the place and I should wear a 14 so this fits well. I like them so much I bought 3 pairs. A great shoe.

I run roads but try to stay on the grass sides and these shoes provide great cushioning and traction for both surfaces. Read More

All-day Comfort

I've been running roads & trails since September '09 & I can honestly say that these are the first trail shoes I'm totally happy with! They're providing for me all-day comfort & after my runs in them, my legs are feeling great. Ample toe box room for me & they don't feel heavy. The cushion is a blessing - soft, yet not to the point where I feel like I'm running in sand. I'm averaging around 8…

I've been running roads & trails since September '09 & I can honestly say that these are the first trail shoes I'm totally happy with! They're providing for me all-day comfort & after my runs in them, my legs are feeling great. Ample toe box room for me & they don't feel heavy. The cushion is a blessing - soft, yet not to the point where I feel like I'm running in sand. I'm averaging around 8 miles in them every time I take them out & every time I get done, I think, "I can't wait to get back in them". For me...they work! I'm expecting at least 300 miles in them, if not 500. ((170lb runner, 5'10", 51yo)) Read More

I am not a runner...two hip replacements. I do walk, bike and use the elliptical almost everyday. What would your team suggest for support and lots of cushion?

2018/10/04 Milford, CT Jim

If your looking for max support and cushion the Beast '18 is a great option.

I purchased the Caldera 2 about 1.5 months ago. The shoes have about 400km on them. I was recently running a race and during the race the entire grip from the sole of the shoe was ripped off the back of the shoe. (There are two grip sections on the rear heal of the shoe) There is no way these should have broken down so quickly? Is there any course of action to warranty the shoe? Thanks

I noticed that REI carries this shoe in Black/Navy/Red. Do you also plan on offering this color online?

Hi Cody, That color is a specialty color made for REI so as of now we won't be carrying it! Run Happy, Brooks Running

Hi! Can you give me a quick comparison between the Caldera and the Cascadia? Stiffness, cushioning, fit, tread pattern, intended trail conditions? Which would be better for occasional hiking in addition to trail running? Thanks!

Hi Rob! The Caldera is a super cushioned shoe whereas the Cascadia is a moderate cushioning shoe! The stiffness is about the same, as well as the fit! The Cascadia has a little more aggressive tread so it will be better on more technical trails! Brooks Running Read More
