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.

These shoes have been great right out of the box. There was no break in period needed. They have been put through a mix of trail types (hard pack gravel, sand, rock and loose rock) and have done well in each area. The colors are awesome, I love the orange color. I will be picking up another pair soon to make sure I don't wear them down too quickly.

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.

A Solid Shield For Your Feet

By "The Tripping Trailer"

from Ringgold, GA

About Me Avid Athlete

Pros

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

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Endurance Training
    • Trail Running

    I usually run in Brooks "Glycerin", but I wanted to try a shoe that was made more for the trail but with the same quality and fit of a Brooks. I've been really happy so far with the Cascadia. I've run several times on some pretty rough trails since I got these. There has been a couple of times I've tripped over a rock or root that would have normally stubbed my toe pretty good, but I hardly felt it with these shoes. It was the same way when I ran over some sharp rocks; they offered great protection. I was also surprised by how easy the shoes cleaned up with a damp cloth.

      If the people at Brooks amde these in resonable colors, I would have bought at least 3 pairs by now.

      Nice Update

      By Scott M

      from Washington State

      About Me Avid Athlete

      Pros

      • Comfortable
      • Cushions Impact
      • Good Traction
      • Responsive

      Cons

      • Heavy

      Best Uses

      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.

      Perfect for Spartan Races

      By Chris

      from Austin, TX

      About Me Gym Rat

      Pros

      • Comfortable

      • Wet Weather

      I was training for a Super Spartan race (8+ miles) and heard all about Reebok's all-terrain shoe that was developed with Spartan racers in mind. However, Reeboks run narrow and I've been an avid Brooks wearer for many half marathons. I purchased the Cascadia 9s based on the reviews in addition to my experience in how Brooks shoes fit. These shoes are definitely not meant for the road which I experienced during my last few weeks of training. Once I got out on the Spartan course, I was very surprised at the traction and feel. I could almost walk down steep, muddy slopes the traction was so good. I was very proud of my decision to purchase these and I will be using them for all my future Spartan races!

      High Octane Trail Runners!

      By DesertYeti

      from Lakewood, CO

      Pros

      • Comfortable
      • Durable

        Best Uses

        I've had this shoe for about 4 months, but I've also had previous iterations of the Brooks Cascadia, and I'm a huge fan. I've used these for trail running mostly, but also hiking, approach, canyoneering, and even some light weight backpacking. For how light they are, they perform very well because they offer excellent traction, good support and moderate protection. If you are looking for something super protective and rigid, look somewhere else (try a stiff hiking boot). But, if you want a shoe that's light, promotes fast leg turnover, breathes well, and gives just enough protection and stability, these are it. Some folks here talk about durability problems, but I've never experienced any issues with these or previous Cascadias (and mine take a lot of abuse, because they are my go-to trail shoe). Lastly, they look cool, and I've found that they're pretty good for adventure races (i.e. Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash, etc) because they drain and dry well. Whatever your use, they definitely will NOT disappoint.
