Columbia Caldorado III Trail Shoe

Several weeks ago Columbia sent me a pair of Women’s Caldorado III’s to try out!  I was able to wear these both on the road and on trails to see how they felt on different terrains. The Caldorado III is a trail shoe with a seamless abrasion resistant upper and soft forefoot flex zone. A cushioning collar foam and a reinforced toe cap adds protection and comfort. These shoes also had FluidGuide technology for midfoot stability and a smooth run on those beautiful trails.  The full length rubber outsole has TrailShield, a protection plate integrated with a forefoot flex grooves.  The traction patterns on the bottom of the shoe, provides plenty of traction on different surfaces you may encounter. Here are some basic specs:

    • Ride heights:
      • 19mm heel
      • 11mm forefoot
    • 4mm outsol lug height
    • Neutral
    • Regular width
    • Colors (Napa Green and Crown Jewel)
    • Price: $120
