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.

I've owed at least one pair of every Cascadia since the second version. Each edition is a little different than the others (exception: #6 was a lot different). I've always been 'mostly' happy with each version. I have my favorites (#3 and #5) and my least favorite (#6). I'll put 400-700 miles on each pair.

I've been on two mountain runs in the 9 so far, and I'm instantly happy with this version.

Pros: The biggest change I see in the 9 versus the 8 is that the 9 has a little wider toe box. For me, this is a positive change; I like that little extra room for toes to splay.

Pros: Same ol' Cascadia feel.

Cons: The two guidance loops at the top of the tongue make it a little cumbersome to tighten the laces like I'm used to. The loops are meant to keep the tongue for sliding down, but they just feel like they're in they way.

I guess I am a semi-pro athlete. I run a number of ultra marathons every year. The Cascadia has been the go-to shoe for years. I haven't raced in anything else. Unfortunately, the design and durability seem to be in a downward spiral. Brooks had this shoe right for a number of years, unfortunately the sole does not offer me as much protection as it use to for a 100 mile race. The tread tears off in chunks. I will miss the Cascadia of old, but I sure got a lot of amazing training and racing miles in them.

The Must-Have Trail Shoe

By Rip

from Grand Rapids, MI

About Me Professional Athlete

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Cushions Impact
  • Durable
  • Good Arch Support
  • Good Traction

Cons

  • Heavy

Best Uses

  • Trail Running
  • Wet Weather

Comments about Cascadia 9:

If you spend any amount of time off the beaten path, whether braving the mountain bike trails, rolling the dirt roads, or galloping the grass fields, you need this shoe in your collection. It can change everything.
True, I spend most of my time on the roads, but when I get the itch to hit a trail or blaze my own path, I find that nothing makes the grade like Cascadia. The difference is obvious: lighter than most trainers, but stable; soft and cushioned interior that reduces rubbing; and tread that will bite through the mud and sand. Added bonus: great on snow and ice!
This shoe has plenty of positive reviews, but let me assure you: I try everything, and I know what I like. I like this shoe.

Comments about Cascadia 9:

Using Cascadia 9, you can tear the earth apart in a flash. If you're not an athlete, you can still wear it for work and get compliments due to its cool design. What I don't like is the gluing, which is untidy because it is somewhat visible.

    Comments about Cascadia 9:

    I was looking for a light weight pair of good weather hiking shoes. I knew I found them from the moment I put these on. I just finished hiking one of the most difficult and primitive trails in Washington State with these while all others were wearing hiking boots. I was laughing all the way to the top as the agility and sure-footedness of these puts any "hiking" shoe to shame. As the weather turns I am sure that I will need to get out the boots but until then these are my kicks.

      Comments about Cascadia 9:

      I am training for a half-marathon trail race. I made the mistake of training with regular running shoes and was advised by a trainer at my workout facility to buy the Brooks Cascadia trail shoes. In the first three steps of running in the Cascadias, I knew that my legs and feet would no longer take the pounding experienced in the regular running shoes. A profound improvement!

      painful

      Comments about Cascadia 9:

      Since purchasing my new Brooks running shoes, I have ran twice. Both times, my lower legs, calves and the sides, hurt so bad I was limping for two days.

      I love the shoes and hope my pain is not coming from the shoes but the pain I am experiencing only started when I started wearing the shoes.
