Too wide

Comments about Mens Brooks Caldera Trail Running Shoe:

It's a nice looking trail shoe, but way too wide for my feet. When I cinched them up tight the heavy orange/yellow material on the sides rubbed on the sides of my feet. This would be a perfect shoe for wide feet.

    Comments about Mens Brooks Caldera Trail Running Shoe:

    So far so good, these are awesome! I only have a few runs in them, so can't speak to durability. The traction is great, the cushioning is perfect, and the shoe provides strong toe protection. Running through water has been good as well, they drain well and maintain their support when wet. My favorite trail shoe was the Altra Lone Peak but my tendon's couldn't handle the zero drop. I've always ran in a 4mm drop shoes and this is the perfect balance. I'm writing this review for those looking for a comfortable trail shoe to put in some long distance with a 4mm drop. This shoe will no disappoint. Not to mention they look awesome.

    Comments about Mens Brooks Caldera Trail Running Shoe:

    I run trails almost exclusively and have been looking for a more cushioned shoe with a more wide forefoot. The Caldera certainly has those features and it has very good grip. I have taken them out on 3 runs now of 4, 7, and 6 miles. While the ride is wonderful and I very much enjoy the extra room up front, for some reason the tongue pinches the outside of my ankle causing quite a bit of pain(mostly after the runs). Until I read the first review here I thought that it was just an oddity of my gait or physiology, but it seems that reviewer also had an issue with the tongue. Although I can't fully endorse them the ride certainly is great if the tongue doesn't cause you problems.

    Not what i expected

    Comments about Mens Brooks Caldera Trail Running Shoe:

    I was hoping that this shoe would be more like the cascadia with more cushion, but I found it less structured and more loose fitting than any other Brooks shoe I have worn. On the good side the shoe is more cushioned, the gusseted tongue and heel cup are well designed. Compared to other Brooks shoes the heel cup is not as narrow. The forefoot has much more room than other Brooks shoes I have worn. I did find the fit a bit sloppy, so I am guessing they used a different (wider) last than cascada's or adrenaline asr's. I opted not to keep the shoes as the fit did not meet my expectations of what I have experienced with other Brooks shoes. I also did not like the lacing system or how the tongue hit the front of my ankle when laced. I was disappointed after much anticipation to get these shoes. In all, I felt the fit more like a New Balance shoe than Brooks.
