Brooks Caldera 2 Review

The Brooks Caldera 2 offers runners a strong balance of speed and durability on natural trails, roads, paved trails, fire roads and most other surfaces



 

In my buildup to my first 100K, one of my largest issues is determining which vest would be best. My preference would be to have a vest where I could use bottles (I am not into bladders) and have a decent amount of storage for nutrition and other necessities between aid stations.



 

Brooks Mazama 2 Review

The Brooks Mazama 2 makes minor modifications to improve an already excellent shoe for trail running. It is light and fast, making it a go-to option for trail racing on courses up to 50K without significant mud or similarly challenging obstacles





 

Inov-8 Roclite 290 Review

The Inov8 Roclite 290 is a sleek, fast and comfortable trail shoe that is quickly becoming my go-to choice for quality trail runs


 

On Cloudrush Review

The On Cloudrush ($130) is an all-new racing shoe that is designed for speed, mostly on shorter races. The Cloudrush, which replaces the now-discontinued Cloudracer, can also be used for speedwork or as a daily trainer, but I would caution against using it for races longer than 10Ks


 

Hoka One One Tracer 2 Review

The Hoka One One Tracer 2 offers runners a lightweight, responsive and fast shoe. Best as a training shoe, but also fine for racing up to the marathon distance, the Tracer 2 is excellent for longer workouts. The shoes are more expensive than others in this category but the combination of excellent cushioning and lightness are


 

New Balance Vazee Summit v2 Review

The New Balance Vazee Summit Trail v2 is a soft, sleek and fast trail shoe that allows the runner to confidently run as quickly as the terrain will allow. The Vazees’ combination of speed and protection will allow runners to handle virtually any kind of terrain


 

Salming enRoute Review

The Salming EnRoute is a soft, comfortable shoe that is ideal for training but not suited for wet, rocky or muddy terrain. Runners wanting to put in a lot of time on mild trails will find these shoes suitable, as would those who are just starting to run on trails


 

Under Armour Horizon RTT Review

The Under Armour Horizon RTT prides itself on being durable and handling trail obstacles with ease. The rugged trail shoe lives up to that promise with solid protective layering inside and outside, including a reinforced toe bumper and plate that are smoothly integrated within the design. The $110 price tag is well worth




 

Mizuno Wave Diachi 2 Review

The Mizuno Wave Daichi 2 professes to be a trail shoe built for all kinds of terrain. But its small lugs do not handle even moderate trail challenges. The lugs regularly fail to grip a muddy surface and routinely collect mud and dirt, slowing the runner


 

The North Face Endurus TR Review

The North Face Endurus TR (retails for $130) is a new model intended to deliver maximum cushioning for trail runners. Beyond the comfortable fit, the Endurus provides solid traction through dirt, mud, snow and even ice


 

Brooks Neuro 2 Review

The Brooks Neuro 2 is a welcome redesign for those who were disappointed in the original version. The shoe is comfortable and sturdy but lacks excitement


 

Brooks Mazama Review

The Brooks Mazama is a new trail shoe that delivers on its promise of a fast, comfortable ride. It feels light like a road shoe but the sole allows the runner to quickly navigate through dirt, water, sand, rocks and other trail hazards
