Additional Information

Born and raised to run the trail, the Cascadia 9 loves to get down and gritty. Tackle tricky terrain with 4-point pivot posts that balance like an SUV's independent suspension system and protect those paws with the ballistic rock shield underfoot. No-sew construction brings comfort sans weight and a BioMoGo DNA midsole adapts cushioning to not only your feet, but also the surfaces of adventure. Enhancements like a slightly lowered heel and flat laces equip this next generation Cascadia for the call of the wild.

We’re not the only people wild about the Cascadia 9. Runner’s World Magazine named the shoe “Editor’s Choice” in their April 2014 issue. The editors called the Cascadia “a workhorse”, noting that “it provides a supportive yet flexible ride on diverse trail surfaces and is great for running on snowy pavement.” Oh, and they also noted that the Cascadia 9 “looks as good with jeans as it does on singletrack trails.” Aw, shucks.

Please note: The Cascadia is designed as a trail running shoe. While a lot of people love it as a fastpacking and thru-hiking shoe while carrying ultralight gear; the Cascadia is not pack-rated and may not hold up to the extra weight and demands of long pack hikes. We’re your go-to option for trail runs, but a sturdy hiking boot may be better suited for heavy packs.

      Not for me

      Pros

      • Good Traction

      Cons

      • Poor Arch Support
      • Poor Cushioning

      Best Uses

        I have the glycerin and the pure cadence. I ordered the cascade because I wanted a trail shoe. I was unable to find it in a store to try it. It was too loose at my arch so felt like there was no support for my low arch. My big toe was hitting right on the edge of the bottom and side of shoe when i ran. It did not feel like enough cushioning in the forefoot. I did not get to try it on a trail since I could only run on a treadmill with them to be able to return if I did not like them. I did not think it would protect the ball of my foot from the rocks very well. I am still looking for a trail shoe. I am an avid runner and have been running for many years so I know pretty quickly if a shoe will work for me or not.

        Just not quite right

        About Me Avid Athlete

        Pros

        • Lightweight

        Cons

        • Full Size Too Big
        • Poor Arch Support
        • Poor Cushioning
        • Poor Stability
        • Too wide

        Best Uses

        • With Orthotics/Inserts

        I've worn a size 8 in every Brooks shoe I've ever worn, this one was a full size too big. A bit wide in the toe box, which would normally be fine with my inserts, but even with them in there was still too much room. The arch support is pretty much nonexistant. It was a nice looking shoe and I wish it would have fit right.

          While the pictures on the website are very helpful, the first time I saw a description of the color was on my shipping notification. If you are wondering, these shoes are considered "Vintage Indigo/Midnight/Marine Blue".

            Disclaimer: while I am a runner, I stay away from off-road running (ankle issues) and only use trail runners for hiking. Just got my first pair of Cascadias, and I don't know why I ever wore anything else. They are comfortable, and the traction is better than any other shoe I've tried. Just wish they came in a Gore-Tex version with an upper that could better shrug off wet/muddy conditions.
