"Best Training Trail Shoe" Minor design flaws.

Still the most comfortable training trail shoe out there. Durable, with great traction. The toe box is snug, but roomy enough for compression flexing and swelling on long runs. Not great on concrete or pavement, but shine in the dirt. Minimal foot fatigue. Couple minor issues: As in their previous model, this shoe has a tendency to release the heel on lateral sloping, causing your ankle to…

Still the most comfortable training trail shoe out there. Durable, with great traction. The toe box is snug, but roomy enough for compression flexing and swelling on long runs. Not great on concrete or pavement, but shine in the dirt. Minimal foot fatigue. Couple minor issues: As in their previous model, this shoe has a tendency to release the heel on lateral sloping, causing your ankle to feel like its going to "taco". This issue is completely solved by using a "runner's tie" on the laces. Unfortunately the laces that come with the shoe are too short to accomplish a decent runner's tie. You'll need 54" or 56" laces. Another minor flaw is the flat laces with the slotted eyelets. The eyelets tend to lock the laces. This causes the laces to lock in place, failing to adjust tension evenly during the run. Get yourself some 54" round laces, perform a "runner's tie" and you'll have one of the best trail shoes on the planet. For Brooks, if your going to use slits, instead of round holes for the eyelets, don't slant the eyelets! It causes the laces to lock, especially with flat laces. Read More

Very satisfied, would be perfect if shoe was made wider

Pretty much happy with performance of shoe, while running or walking feels like I'm floating, which is what I expected, if this certain sho not made a bit wider, please make it!

Good traction and cushioning

Nice improvement over original Caldera, but I miss the pace you could tuck your laces into.

Great all around shoe

These are my favorite trail shoe. The toe box is generous, they are fairly light, and the cushioning is superb. I purchased these a half a size down from my Ghost 11's and have a thumbs width at the toe. Took them out on a rough rocky trail and thought for sure they were going to show some damage as they have some exposed foam and more delicate looking tread but they showed no wear. I would love…

Loving the long miles in these

Dear Brooks, you've got an amazing shoe here, please don't go and change it up too much. It works very well just the way it is! I'm 5'11 170 lbs an ultra-runner and very knowledgeable when it comes to shoes. A bit obsessive even. This shoe has such a wonderful balance of cushion and responsiveness.

Dear Brooks, you've got an amazing shoe here, please don't go and change it up too much. It works very well just the way it is! I'm 5'11 170 lbs an ultra-runner and very knowledgeable when it comes to shoes. A bit obsessive even. This shoe has such a wonderful balance of cushion and responsiveness. A plush landing with a nice toe off. I love the cushion to weight ratio, (this trail shoe is a good bit lighter than most of my road shoes.) I'm in love with DNA cushioning. IMO it's hands down the best. This shoe fits my foot like a glove. I bought my regular size 12, it fits perfect. I do prefer to wear thin socks with these as the toe box isn't super wide, but I also consider my forefoot to be a little wider than most and it's fine for me. The heel fit is so spot on! Midfoot fit, arch height and lockdown are also spot on. The lugs are deep enough to get the job done in most situations while keeping the shoe very light. I'm more of a function over fashion guy, so the one color option is fine for me. Tongue is comfortable, could maybe add a little more cushion in there for bombing down hills. Very durable, especially in this weight category. The lace garage is very useful. The only suggestions I have would be that the upper could use a "little" better breathability, possibly a little bigger drainage ports. Maybe open up the width on the toe box just a smidge, (on the big toe side only.) I dislike when shoes taper in on the inside, it often results in my "straight" big toe being uncomfortably forced inward toward the center of the foot, rather than being able to remain straight. Think footshape. Also, it is a little "tippy". I roll outward a little more often than i do in other trail shoes. Is it because the bottom is slightly tapered from side to side? Would changing this design take away from the superb cushioned landing...maybe. If so, then please just leave it as is because this shoe is pretty darn incredible Read More

What is that little black strap over the midfoot? Any changes to the midsole in terms of flexibility?

2019/01/02 Vermont Chris

The strap is a lace garage that keeps your laces secure and out of the way. The flexibility will be the same.

Are there any other colors available then Green and when will it be available?

2018/12/25 Grand Rapids, MI Vishal

There will be more colors avalble in June 2019.
