For me good trail runners are a balance between having too much shoe (Hoka) or not enough structure. The 12 hit a good spot on the spectrum, and can be used for both running or packing.
Upper Padding – Comfortable. A good combination of padding and breathability. The padding is like a typical running shoe, wraps around the entire ankle. The padding at the heel creates a nice cup to prevent slipping. They seem to have gotten the balance right, where the shoe doesn't have so much padding that it makes dealing with water a problem. When I get these shoes wet I normally walk/run for another 15 minutes and then change into a dry pair of socks. Doing this gives you nearly dry shoes.
Upper Fabric - The mesh on the upper is a tight weave, and hasn’t had any issue collecting debris. The upper has an overlay of rubber that wraps around the lower portion. I like this feature because it helps with small puddles and mud.
Underfoot - Seems more plush then previous revisions, but not so plush to be sluggish. Out of the box they feel springy and responsive. The shoe holds the foot in place and works ok for side hilling. These will work well for trail running, hiking, and with heavy pack loads. Most of the cushion is built into the sole. The insole doesn’t have much meat to provide padding.
Tread – The shoes have a good sole plate to protect your foot. The tread rubber seems tough, but not so dense they slide on hard surfaces. The tread isn’t overly aggressive where it hangs up on stuff on the ground. The tread wraps up and over the toe for good protection.
Cons – I have the grey and yellow color, they look ok. Brooks keeps putting a contrasting color of the outsole under the for forefoot and heel. I think it looks ugly, and wish they would change the look.
Durability – In the past I was able to get about 300 miles before they died. The shoe is usable for longer but the soles start to loose cushion. The point of failure in past revisions have been at the fabric above the toe knuckles breakdown into a tear, which ends up propagating into a bigger hole. Brooks has done a slightly different rubber overlay on the 12s above the toe, but I don’t think it’s going to fix the problem.
I am 6'5"/220 lbs and so far these shoes have held up well to daily running.
