REVIEW

Trail runners and RaceYaya Team Members Iris Torculas and Tin Ferrera, together with Clark Miyamit Falls Ultra's 2014-2015 champion Tolitz Divina tested the Brooks Mazama at the CM50 route. Running through lahar bed, streams of water, a mix of compact and loose surfaced terrain of mix lahar and mud.

SOME OF THEIR OBSERVATIONS ARE:

1. The shoes is ideal for running through water with its good drainage. It easily flows out and shoes doesn't fell heavy after. If you are running through Sacobia River, fear not if you get it wet early in the race as it wouldn't weigh you down.
2. It is stable going downhill. The lugs which is bi-directional makes it stable on any terrain. You hardly slip on rocks which is common along Sacobia and Pasig Potrero River.
3. On loose and sandy surface, you can feel it steady. It has that push that conserves your energy.
4. Minor details but it has a pocket where you can tuck your shoelace.
5. It has very little cushioning but has a good rock plate, you hardly feel those roots and rocks you step on. Yet you can run steadily through it, without the fear of slipping.

The terrain where it was tested is less muddy so it was not fully tested yet on that condition.

Expect this shoes to be fast!
