The new Brooks Caldera 3 presents a number of paradoxical situation that represent the very best features of a trail beast. Do you want the breathability of a lightweight mesh upper or do you want the protection of a water resistant upper? Do you want a low drop shoe for a more natural ride or do you want a thick cushioned midsole to support your feet for miles on the trails? With the Caldera, you don’t have to choose. Throw in a sticky outsole rubber and an updated, more prominent gaiter trap and you have everything you need to conquer any terrain. Wherever, whatever conditions; the Caldera 3 should be your choice.
