    Comments about Womens Brooks Caldera Trail Running Shoe:

    I bought these shoes, because I have heard trail runners can be great to hike in. They more than met my expectations for this use. I completed a Rim to Rim to Rim in the Grand Canyon - 44.6 miles, in just over 26 hours. Pros: light weight, breathable, extreme cushion, plenty of room in toe box = no blisters or black toe nails, durable = no obvious wear, incredible traction - last 3 miles, with much elevation gain, were done at 40 degrees with rain, enough rain to turn the trail into a slick, muddy mess & I wasn't slipping or sliding. Cons: not waterproof & let the sand in - don't know that this could be fixed without losing some of those Pros. They also washed up nicely in my front load washer.

    Comments about Womens Brooks Caldera Trail Running Shoe:

    I've worn Brooks running shoes for about 18 years. After getting into trail running I went through all their models over the years. The new Brooks Caldera is hands down the best trail shoe. I fell in love with them during their first outing. Highly cushioned but still responsive. Grippy outsole feels secure even on wet rocks and in snow and mud. Great little tweaks such as laces that do not come loose due to their texture and the slits (rather than round holes) they pass through, and power-stretch pocket in the tongue to stash the loops. Also a great feature is the velcro patch at the heel to fasten my trail gaiters to. My first pair already went through about 350 miles and is still doing well. I bought 2 more pairs I'm just starting to run a few miles in - to use in my upcoming Western States 100 mile Endurance Race the end of June.

      Best Trail Shoe Yet

      By Judy

      from undisclosed

      Comments about Womens Brooks Caldera Trail Running Shoe:

      My first run in the Brooks Caldera was a 3 mile run in light snow and a -10 degree windchill. I had good traction, and my feet never got cold. For me, this is the best fitting trail running shoe for me so far, with a wider toe box, and wider base, and great cushion. I found a little slipping on the snow with toe off, but mid-foot traction was great on powder snow. The textured laces stayed tight.

        Wow, these are some of the most comfy shoes I've ever had! I have picky feet and a bum knee, so running shoes are a big deal to me...and I've tried several. That's why I like RRS because if they don't work, you can send them back so you can't go wrong. Go Caldera!

          Comments about Womens Brooks Caldera Trail Running Shoe:

          Hands-down, these are the most comfortable pair of trail shoes I've ever worn. I run a few dozen races a year (mostly on trails), and have been wearing Brooks Cascadias as a default, after going through the gamut of various brands and not really liking them much. With the Caldera, Brooks has truly outdone itself. It has an ample toebox (very helpful when your toes need to be agile and maintain balance over rough terrain) and feels comfortable right out of the box.

          A couple of things really stand out. It comes with a Velcro tab on the back heel for those of us who wear trail gaiters. They keep pebbles out but you typically have to glue your own Velcro on the back of your shoes; the Caldera already comes with. The shoelaces are also textured to resist untying. There are seven rows of eyelets so you can easily "lock lace" your shoelaces to keep your heels from wobbling in the shoes. They even put some thought into the eyelet designs... they are mostly slotted to keep out dirt and keep the laces in place, but the top two sets of eyelets are round and reinforced, so to make it easy to lace and unlace them.

          They are not quite zero drop shoes, but I think the heel drop on this is a bit lower (they feel that way, anyway). An all-around grand slam champion, I say. Thank you Brooks!
