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.

The Cascadia 10's 4-point pivot system is now even more responsive, so it's more offroad-ready than ever. > See the Cascadia 10 Trail Running Shoes

I love Cascadia. I have had 2 pair of Cascadia 7. Tried on the 8, they were too wide for my narrowish feet, not enough support either. I run Mtn. biking trails lots of hills. I need lots of support. I was worried a little that these 9's weren't going to support my feet. No worry...they are my favorite shoe so far and I have been running the trails for several years now. I just lace them up tight and I have all the support I need, plus they are light weight. I also like the fact that the heel is lower, no more stress on my hamstring's as before. I also run on cement trails occasionally when it's too wet, they are great for that too.

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.

    Comments about Cascadia 9:

    I wear a women's size 8. I could NOT find a women's 8 in the Cascadia 9 version ANYWHERE, even on brooksrunning.com. So I went ahead and ordered a 7 1/2. I generally wear somewhere between a 7 1/2 and 8, but since I like some toe room, my default size is an 8. The 7 1/2 fits perfectly with no toe crowding. When I get home from work every day, I immediately shuck off my work shoes and put these on, now--who needs slippers when I have these?

      Comments about Cascadia 9:

      I bought my first pair based on a friend's recommendation. She asked what my expected activity would be with this shoe (light hiking) and my biggest concern when I was on a trail (sureness/good traction/fear of falling). She recommended these shoes. I loved them. So, when my sister needed a pair of hiking shoes, I insisted she go with these. She's been happy so far!!

        Not enough arch support

          Comments about Cascadia 9:

          This is an attractive, lightweight shoe with a nice tread, however I was disappointed to find that the footbed didn't provide enough arch support (I have a mildly high arches). This was my first time trying out Brooks; I'd heard good things about them. I usually wear Asics, but ended up going with a pair of Mizunos this time.

              I bought these looking for something a little more substantial than the pure grit trail shoes. I ordered the same size I normally wear in the pure grits and I found them to be at least a full size too big, at least for me. I am sending them back because I am unable to wear them.
