Get more out of your shoe.
Built with an even-keeled construction for stability, support, and fatigue-fighting performance, the Brooks Men's Caldera 2 Trail Running Shoe will keep you coming back mile after mile. This shoe features a double mesh upper that provides protection from grime and obstacles and stretches with your foot to assures a seamless, pressure-free fit and feel. The arch support caters to a wide variety of arch types (flat, medium, and high), while the neutral support ensures that it works well with both over and under pronators.
However, that's not to say that the Caldera doesn't offer a stable feel underfoot—it's fashioned with Brooks' Universal Platform, so it allows you to maintain a steady stride in unpredictable terrain. Meanwhile, the BioMoGo DNA midsole has built-in protection, attenuates shock, fights fatigue, and promotes smooth heel-to-toe transitions. The integrated gaiter tab allows you to attach your choice in gaiters to the shoe to protection from dust, clingy grass, or biting bugs.

Lightweight and super breathable. The caldera fit my narrow foot a little large, so I sized down. For reference I wear an 11 in altra and La Sportiva trail shoes. I have been really impressed so far with the way the caldera carries on long distance runs, no pressure points and a moderate cushion paired with the low heel drop. So far I have used these on mostly roads and a few easy trails, not ideal for technical trails or scrambling as the rubber is not very sticky but that’s not he purpose of the caldera. The caldera keeps me floating high mileage, and comparing to the zero drop shoes I was in before seem to keep me moving a little faster. The 4 mm heel drop is really negligible moving from zero drop but I feel it a little bit the day after my first run. Overall I am super happy with the caldera and am excited for these in the summer due to the venting, which has been a little cold for winter running but not a deal breaker. I like the gaiter traps but hopefully on future models they can use a little better Velcro and a toe trap as well.
