COLUMBIA CALDORADO III UTMB

220 Triathlon Magazine - - KIT ZONE - columbi­as­portswear.co.uk

£115 The dated aes­thet­ics meant these were one of the last out of the test­ing box, but if we had a badge for ‘Big­gest Sur­prise’ on test it would go to the Caldorado. It’s the all-day com­fort that truly stands out, with the Flu­idFOAM mid­sole, arch-sup­port­ing/footcradling in­soles and breath­able up­per mak­ing them ul­tra-run­ning friendly, and yet they still re­tain a feel for the trails. The weight is a low 276g, but the off­set of this is the slen­der road shoe-like up­per that of­fers lit­tle pro­tec­tion from the el­e­ments and only ad­e­quate grip from the shal­low out­sole lugs.
