Why We Love The Catamount Trail Running Shoe

As the first trail shoe to feature the DNA Flash midsole from Brooks, the Catamount Trail Running Shoe is a lightweight ride designed for fast-paced performance on the trails. A suede reinforcement lining is paired with a half-bootie tongue to lock your foot into the shoe, and to keep out debris, while drainage points throughout the upper disperse water and sweat to keep your feet dry. The midsole, constructed from proprietary DNA material, is infused with nitrogen to produce what Brooks refers to as DNA Flashan incredibly responsive composite material that feels secure and supportive on technical terrain. The outsole is surfaced with 3.5mm lugs for optimal traction when conditions on the trail turn dicey.


  • A responsive trail shoe for nimble all-terrain runners
  • Half-bootie tongue hugs your foot while keeping out dirt and debris
  • DNA Flash midsole pairs with nitrogen for a refined, airy ride
  • Drainage slits expel water to dry feet quickly on the trail
  • TrailTack outsole enhances grip in wet, variable conditions
  • Ballistic rock plate protects against roots and rocks underfoot
  • 3.5mm lugged outsole provides durability and traction on the trail

I used these shoes to run the Taos Up & Over 10K race. This is a race at high elevation and very rocky terrain. The shoes did ok - I felt the rocks through the shoes, the width runs narrow and I did not feel the stability you feel with other Brooks. I am not sure I will be purchasing them again.

Not for me

Too hard for me. Will stick to Caldera for the trails. Don’t get me wrong, another get shoe from Brooks, it’s just not for me.

Runs small and right

Been a brooks 8 all my life. These run small and narrow causing some numbness.

Catamount style shoe

This is the most comfortable Brooks style for me so far. I’m working on healing an inflamed tendon and ALL 8 pair of my shoes are Brooks. My regular physician recommended them a few years back, so that is all I buy. Thanks!

Good but not Great

over all this is a great shoe; however, I rate it a 4 because of the following - wish for slightly larger lugs for a little more grip - Shoe is slightly too cushiony for my taste and feels tall

Excellent trail shoes. Great support. Better for short to medium distances on road.

Really liking on the trails

They don't feel rigid, yet do feel firm. I like how the fit snug around the ankle to keep it debris, but they still breath.

Comfortable, dry quick and good cushioning. Hopefully the cushioning doesn’t crush - so far so good!!
