Men's Cascadia 10

$120.00 $78.00

Style #110187

Like a plush SUV for your feet, the versatile Cascadia 10 men's trail-running shoe packs a mountain of features to keep runners stable and protected on tricky terrain. Its 4-point pivot system helps feet adapt to uneven ground, and a ballistic rock shield protects from trail hazards. The midsole's adaptive DNA cushioning disperses impact, and a segmented crash pad makes for smooth ground contact. The upper handles the elements with ease, thanks to moisture-management mesh and hydrophobic foam. It all comes together to create a rugged, comfortable, trail running super-shoe.

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.

DNA Midsole

What is it?

Brooks DNA is an innovative and uniquely adaptive cushioning system. By adapting to your specific weight, pace, gait and running surface, DNA offers customized cushioning and adds a spring to your step.

Traditional cushioning takes a one-size-fits-all approach, but we know that each runner is different. Brooks DNA was developed to continuously tailor the level of cushioning to your specific needs – even as they change during the run.

How does it work?

Brooks DNA is made up of a highly viscous non-Newtonian material or more simply put, a material that adapts to the specific force you apply to it. Part of the brilliance is that this compound was engineered to perform at the molecular level (picture millions of resilient 'nanosprings').

If you looked at Brooks DNA through a microscope, you'd see that it's made up of individual molecules connected in strands. These strands (which form chains) react to the amount of force placed on the foot, dispersing pressure and providing resiliency. Bottom line of this physics lesson: You get tailored cushioning that reacts to your specific weight, pace, gait, movement and running environment – "made-for-me" cushioning vs. "one size fits all."

And, as with all good technology, we’ve taken it a step further (two steps actually):

  • BioMoGo DNA is DNA technology blended with the BioMoGo midsole to provide adaptive cushioning throughout the midsole vs. just in the heel and forefoot.
  • BioMoGo DNA midsole includes an organic, non-toxic additive that biodegrades the midsole 50 times faster than traditional EVA when it comes into contact with anaerobic landfill microbes (otherwise known as active, enclosed landfills).
  • 30% more cushioning than standard midsole materials (gel or EVA)
  • Twice as much energy return for more pep in your step
  • Great performance no matter your weight or running pace
  • Smoother transition from heel to toe

So this is my second pair of Cascadias. My first pair, 6s, were great. To review these 10s I must talk about the 6s first.

The 6s upper was extremely well built. I have put maybe 400-500 miles on those shoes with no breakdown whatsoever of the upper, which is pretty unbelievable. I primary ran with these shoes around the Phoenix valley at the various mountain parks and up in Flag. Needless to say these shoes got thoroughly abused. The big problem with the 6s was that the actual tread was just not strong. Chunks of it would literally rip off on the trails. Disappointing, but they were free, so nbd.

When I picked up my tens I was excited. One, because the tread looked burly as heel and two, they were a bit more stiff than the 6s. The less technical the trail the stiffer I prefer my shoe to be - as I had just moved back to the PNW I was happy. OK, so now fast forward 250-300 miles and the shoe is still riding great. The tread, while noticeably less sticky on prolonged scrambles up bare rock, stick holds perfect on regular trail. HOWEVER, the upper is really pretty much shot. To the point I'm never sure if I will literally run right out of the shoe at some point on my run. See the pictures. The shoes still feel great and ride well so I'm definitely going to run these things until they actually do just tear all the way through.

My suggestion to brooks would be pair the upper of 6s with the sole and tread of the 10s and then never change a thing again.

Brooks Cascadia was my go to trail shoe; I've always loved the fit, comfort, and protection from sharp objects on the ground. But, the integrated molding into the mesh upper creates stress points at the natural bend points near the toes. The stress causes the mesh to disintegrate at the across the arch. I have a pair of Cascadia 10 with less than 100 miles on them and the mesh is completely breaking away from the molding at the transition point between the forefoot and toes on both shoes. These shoes would have many miles of trail running still in them if they weren't falling apart.

      Comments about Cascadia 10:

      I loved the Cascadia 8 and as there was no need to buy the 9 I was looking forward for the Cascadia 10. But what a disappointment, after 4 months the mesh started to tear and after 6 months and not even 500 kilometers the shoes became useless for running.
      Sorry Brooks but I will never buy your shoes again!

      I ordered 1/2 size larger per customer feedback recommendations, and they fit perfect.

      Felt a little narrow when I first put on - but they have adjusted well after wearing a few times.

      Comments about Cascadia 10:

      I bought my first pair upon the recommendation at my local running store for a trail 50K. Most of the trail was grass and dirt but a nice chunk was rocky, rooty and at a 20% angle making for a slippery, sliding and awkward gait. The 10's held me up and I didnt fall once. Tripped yes, but I didnt fall. I wore them again at mile 30 during a 50 mile attempt (which i DNF'd). The trail was dirt, grass and sand but a storm blew in and the trail became a muddy, sloppy mess. The 10's kept me upright and I while I slipped and slide a bit, I did not fall. The toe box is wide enough for my feet and the plate is awesome. The best part if the pivot system which helped me remain upright. The only issue is where the shoe bends over my pink toes when running. That area pinches me a bit and I was worried about a massive blister or even running it raw but it was fine. Overall, I cashed in all my points at the running store to buy a second pair of 10's they were so good.

        I trail run on very rocky and jagged areas most of the time. I sold shoes at sport chalet for awhile and I ended up with trail runners from most of the major brands (including Brooks). After running the same trails and terrain over a couple years, I found the Brooks to be the absolute best and to hold up extremely well. The other brands I used literally fell apart over a short time on the rocks but the Brooks held up. They are also very comfortable which is a huge bonus. My only con is that I have wide feet and the toe box is just a little too narrow. As the shoe breaks in it becomes ok. It would be nice maybe if it came in a 2E.

            This pair of Cascadia's was to be my third, but now after only about 15 miles in them they will be headed back to the store.

            After a short run yesterday on a trail mostly littered with pine needles, chunks of the tread are missing. I have attached pictures and you can see that one foot is worse then the other, but I would expect it to get worse with each run.

            Neither of my previous pairs has done anything like this; the tread has lasted, even when running on pavement. Those shoes have been well worn but not had the tread rip off.

            I am hoping I will be able to put my money toward the 11's and pray that the issues with tread wear will not be present.
