Rated 4 out of 5 by from BOOM! <man slowly walks up to stage with mic and drops said mic> BOOM! finally found a shoe that works......right out of the box trail runner specifically, great grip and able to handle all that the trails have had to offer thus far. Usually have to work into a new shoe by trying out multiple types. On the Mazamba, I tried it on at the store and have not looked back. The folks at Brooks did well on this one along with the assistance from Scott Jurek. Thank you. Keep it coming

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brooks cult continues Great shoe! Really the genre trail shoe Brooks has needed. This shoe is a nice middle ground between the Cascadia and the PureGrit. It has the normal shoe feel like the Cascadia but the responsiveness of the PureGrit. The grip is pretty good but could be better. I find the PureGrit's grip to be one of the best all around treads and would like to see the evolution of the Mazama utilize the PureGrit's lug pattern. Very solid shoe. Now I can't wait for my post-work run in them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from meh... just a generic trail shoe I used to love Brooks but their shoes have taken a dive over the last five years or so. They make no shoes with lugs that seem to be made for traction or outdoor use. More often than not, their trail shoes seem to just be Road shoes in different colors. I have no idea why these shoes don't actually have traction anymore. I have wide feet, and the forefoot of the shoe is the most vague that I've ever owned in a trail shoe - these are so far from the glove like fit of my Cascadia's from a few years ago. Grip is below average, as it is stiffness. Too expensive for such a mediocre shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome After running in Cascadia's and displeasure with last two iterations, decided to give these a try. After first pair sole started to separate after about 60 miles and REI's awesome service, second pair have been flawless and really loving them in all conditions. Can't go wrong, true to size no complaints with close to 250 miles now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes..Yes..Yes! Loved the Pure grits, however as they became narrower, I moved onto other trail shoes, but never found "the" pair until the Mazama came out! It is a great all-around shoe so far. I have about 100 miles on them and love several things: first it is great up the trail and down! The forefoot is snug enough to allow for great downhill stride and the plate is well positioned to protect my feet. Uphill, there is still enough room in the toe box to spread out my toes as things heat up. The traction was great on the sandy, rocky, slippery trails we have here like Mt. Wilson allowing confident turns and downhill foot placement. Now here is the big bonus; it feels really good on concrete or asphalt as well! Many of the trail races around here start on road then move to trail and finding a shoe that handles both well has been a challenge. No complaints so far. The spring to the step also reminds me of my Newton Gravity road shoes without the large lugs under the foot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now I'm torn between Mazamas and Speedcross 4s I have been running in Brooks on the streets and Salomon for trails for several years (never been a Cascadia fan....). I gave these a try and whatdaya know... I love them - Brooks has always fit my feet best, and now there's a lightweight sturdy trail shoe I enjoy - Running Happy...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Another meh Brooks shoe - horrible tongue design!! I used to love every Brooks shoe until a few years ago and now they just can't get it right. By far the worst part is the horrible elastic bands that keep the tongue down - this makes it way too hard to get my foot inside the shoe even when fully unlaced, which means my heel presses down on the heel cup of the shoe when I put them on. This has resulted in the junky material in the heel getting completely frayed and smashed internally. So now the top part of the heel has no structure and it gets in the way every time I try to put them on. Super low quality feel as a result. And now it takes forever to put the shoe on. The shoe fits pretty decently otherwise, but the heel rubbed on my last hike (maybe because the busted upper heel box), which was only about 6-7 miles with a lot of elevation. I guess I keep coming back to Brooks since their shoes used to be so great, but they tinkered with the formula when the minimalist thing was a trend and they just haven't been able to recapture the magic. Bummer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2 pairs and both had issues under 100 miles I purchased this product as I love Brooks shoes, but this model truly disappointed me in quality. The benefits of the shoe hold true: light and fast. Unfortunately the result of having that is a poor quality. My first pair had the sole peel off which REI kindly replaced. The second pair (photo attached) created a gashing hole in the side which upon bringing back to REI again received a refusal to exchange.

Anybody know if these are replacing Brook's Pure Grit?

Asked by: Rayo12
The Mazama Trail-Running Shoes are not part of the Brooks Pure line and should not be consider a replacement for the Pure Grit.

How roomy is the toe box? Salomon discontinued my beloved XR Mission shoes. The X-Mission are reportedly closer to the narrow Speedcross fit, and the Fellraiser definitely is. Before going totally foot-shape with Altra, looking at Brooks. Ty!

Asked by: Username
The Mazama has an average toe box. It will have slightly more volume than the XR Mission.
