Brooks is one of the performance space’s most innovative brands, and it’s been thinking big for well over 100 years. Its latest pair of trail running shoes in the Caldera 6 goes to show why it remains a mainstay in the world of footwear.
The athletic brand touts its Caldera 6 as the “Ultra Trail” shoe, and its unique composition leaves us with no room to argue. It boasts a mid-foot saddle that keeps the foot secure and a quick-drying air mesh upper, paving the way for breathability with every stride you take. Additionally, it sits on a cushy nitrogen-infused midsole and an outsole with raised side walls to provide the smoothest run imaginable. This unique process provides extra cushioning, as the brand claims its DNA LOFT v3 is unrivaled in this category.
While this shoe’s composition is remarkable in its own right, Brooks has also unveiled a standard running shoe that offers a similar makeup. The Glycerin 20 is primarily made for road running, and features the same newly-engineered mesh upper, DNA LOFT v3 midsole, and has gone through a strenuous amount of wear testing with athletes to assure nothing short of the best shoe for the street. Plus, each shoe will be available in a wide array of colorways, so you can match it with the rest of your running gear.
The Glycerin 20 road running shoes and Caldera 6 trail runners will be available from Brooks on July 1st, with the former listed at $160 and the latter at $150.
