    Great trail running and light hiking shoe!

    Use for hiking and trail running on a variety of trails. They provide excellent traction up and down hill, adequate cushioning, and good protection underfoot. Good trail feel on rocky terrain.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    My trail shoe for the year!

    Very similar to my all time favorite trail shoe, the Cascadia 9. This is an improvement over the previous 2 models. Great traction, stable, cushions well. Snug fit for my narrow feet, but with room in the toe box to avoid rubbing. Good arch support for my high arches. I haven't had them long enough to speak to the durability, but I'm happy with everything so far!

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Not what I hoped.

    I've worn at least 6 or 7 iterations of the Cascadia. I did think the upper fit on this shoe was better than the 11, and the traction was great. That's all the positve words I have for these shoes. I found the shoe forced my foot to pronate, and initially the outside of the shoe (the side opposite of my arch) felt as though it had stiff lumps in it. After trying to break the shoes in, and doing a few trail runs in them I started to feel a significant pain in my foot, what I would associate with a shoe that it attempting to stop my foot from supinating. I called Brooks to ask if the last or the sole of the shoe had changed and was told the only thing that changed was the upper, but after looking at the 11 and the 12 with a running shoe store associate we could see that the shoe had changed in a few ways, as the last appears to be more curved and the density zones are much different. I did try on another pair to make sure it wasn't simply the shoes I had purchased and experience the same discomfort in the other pair as well. I did notice that in a prominent trail running magazine reported that some testers of the Mazama felt that it forced them to pronate as well. Sadly, I just bought a pair of Launch 4's after having had 2 pair's of the Launch 3's and I am experiencing a bit of the same sensations. It's not quite as pronounced but it's there. I think it would be great if running shoe companies would quit radically changing their shoes in the name of "progress", and just focus on making a high quality product, and if works well then don't change a thing.

    Love my Cascadia 12s. Hate the color options.

    I've been hiking in theses since early January and love these shoes. I've hiked in a myriad of environments from mud, to root filled trails, to solid rock balds to packed dirt and they performed well on all of them. I even threw a pair of micro spikes over them and took them up an icy climb to the top of Mt. LeConte. I got a little over 200 miles out of my first pair and the grip is really gone at this point. Seems like a decent amount of sole left, but they've just lost that really grippy feeling they used to have. On my second pair now and they feel just like my worn in, comfy pair right out of the box. I'm sure it won't be my last pair. Just wish they were a little more durable. Oh, while at the end of the day, the color choices don't mess with the performance, they really need to go back to the design table and come up with some better color options. I feel like all of these were misses and I was choosing the lesser of evils. At the end of the day though, they make my feet happy. :)

    Excellent update!

    2017/04/15 | Tennessee |

    Took them out of the box and ran 22 miles in them the very next day, no blisters and no discomfort. The wider, roomier toe box made for and awesome, already-broken-in feel. I had no problems with grip and was very satisfied with their response.

    Great trail shoe

    2017/03/09 | Alabama |

    I have been a beast fan for over 20 years. Following wet conditions and traction trouble at a few ultras, I decided to try the cascadias. I was not disappointed. They are lighter, though not quite as cushioned as the beast. The grip is great.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Definitely improved

    I have been wearing the Cascadia shoes for trail running since v5. Some versions have been better than others with the 8s being my favorite and the 10s being the least favorite. I ordered the 12s as soon as they were released because the 11s, although more durable than the 10s were pretty much the same. Right out of the box these 12s are a better version than the last two. I have taken them for out for runs every day since their arrival with 3" of powdery snow covering the trails. The toe box on these 12s is wider which is immediately noticeable. I don't have a wide foot but versions 9,10, and 11 seemed to feel more narrow. The new lug design on the bottom really handled the snow well. The upper is a tougher material reminiscent of the 8s. I expect these will last the life of the shoe and not tear apart prematurely. There are less overlays on this version which for me is a big plus. Ever since the change to welded overlays (which for some reason most shoe manufacturers have gone to) the shoes don't seem as comfortable because they didn't seem to conform to my foot as well. Besides less overlays this model returned to a sewn down toe cap which to me makes the shoe more flexible therefore more comfortable. Soft snow is on the ground but I expect this version to be every bit as cushioning as all the past versions which is why I have stayed with the Cascadia. My initial impression is that the 12s are an improvement to an already excellent long distance trail running shoe.
