i would buy this product again

This shoe is nearly perfect for long trail runs with the exception that it does not have great traction. Not sure how much I trust it on loose scree or wet areas. For how cushioned it is, it still has good ground feel and response. It's light and very comfortable.

Caldera

Best shoe ever, I run, and walk, and work in this shoe. It's like my feel are on a air cloud. So very happy with this shoe. My toes have room, and with other shoes I have to loosen them, not with these shoes. Best shoe for my feet.

Favorite shoe needs one change

I absolutely love the feel and comfort of these shoes. I've come back to them twice now since they are the only shoe that keeps certain foot aches and pains away but I am shy giving it a full 5 star review because the traction and tread is really lacking. It isn't grippy after two or three runs. In mud I've slid all over the place and in dry gravel I have done the same. If you could put the…

It isn't grippy after two or three runs. In mud I've slid all over the place and in dry gravel I have done the same. If you could put the Cascadia traction on this shoe, you'd have a 5 star outstanding trail shoe. PLEASE consider changing the traction for the next model. Read More

Good light-weight trail shoe

This is the Ghost version of Brooks trail runners, with the Cascadia being like the Glycerin. Fit is very similar to the Ghost, wider in the toes, so it feels roomier overall. Good grip in heel cup, so if you have extra room in the toes, you can lace up with a marathoner's loop & still feel secure, even on descents. The sole is very pliable without rock plate, but still has good cushioning. I…

The sole is very pliable without rock plate, but still has good cushioning. I ended up returning for Cascadia, as I wanted the extra protection of the rock plate for more rugged terrain. If you want a well-cushioned shoe are are willing to forego the rock plate, then order the Caldera, but may want to go down 1/2 size from Glycerin, or order your Ghost size & it should be very similar in fit & feel.

Amazing shoe!!

I love this shoe! I had tried on a few sizes in the store, but they didn't have my exact size so I ordered it online. It came 1 day before I was leaving for Albuquerque and Denver for vacation where I was going to be doing A LOT of hiking. I did mainly get it for trail running as I'd like to start doing more of that, but figured I'd take it hiking since I'd be doing some road running too while…

I love this shoe! I had tried on a few sizes in the store, but they didn't have my exact size so I ordered it online. It came 1 day before I was leaving for Albuquerque and Denver for vacation where I was going to be doing A LOT of hiking. I did mainly get it for trail running as I'd like to start doing more of that, but figured I'd take it hiking since I'd be doing some road running too while on vacation. First day wearing the shoes, I went on a 15 mile hike up the Sandia Mountains. I had ZERO issues. The shoe was so comfortable, there was no breaking in period. No blisters, no rubbing, nothing! I was amazed, though not surprised. I've never had any breaking in period for the Glycerin's that I've been wearing for 5+ years. I continued to wear the shoe for numerous other shorter (3-5 mile) hikes up/down the mountains without any issues. I also wore them in a 5K road race and they were great. Super supportive and felt good the whole time. I'm excited to be back home and looking forward to taking them out on the trails now that the weather is finally nice. Highly recommend!! Read More
