    Brooks Cascadia 8 Trail-Running Shoes - Women's is rated 4.375 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not tough enough The Brooks Cascadia line has sacrificed quality for style. The Cascadia 5 was sturdy and comfortable the 6 was less so and the 7 and 8 fall apart within 200 miles or less. At 35 miles a week I can't afford these shoes anymore.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shoes ever!! I am only writing this to make sure that this shoe gets its proper dues. I can't believe that another reviewer said that they were poorly made. Untrue!! These shoes are the best I've tried and I've tried just about every brand out there. They are comfortable right away - have plenty of toe space and both heel are arch are well supported. I've had these shoes for about four months now and wear them all the time - for hiking, running and school. Plus the color is gorgeous! My husband just bought his first pair of Brooks yesterday and he's just as sold on the fit and comfort. Really - try them!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoe for neutral arch I have been looking diligently for a trail shoe that has arch support for high arches, fits comfortable in the heel and has good cushion. My search continues. Salomon would be perfect for me if their sizing was different- an 8.5 only fits if I don't hike (slide around in my shoe) and the 9 is too big. The cascadia is a great shoe. Version 8 has a slightly wider toe box than 7 (Although a bunion on one foot makes this still slightly uncomfortable for me.) The cushioning in this shoe is fabulous-very comfy. There really isn't much arch support which is fine if you have a neutral arch. I'm still going to keep them. Last week I wore them on a 9 mile hike and my feet and shins didn't hurt until about mile 7. Bottom line- if you have a neutral arch, average width feet and want a trail shoe with great cushion- this is your shoe!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous shoe I've owned several pairs of Cascadias. The Cascadia 8s have been superb so far. Really light, very comfortable, supportive without being bulky. I mostly run trails, but also do some road running, and these shoes have performed well on both. Very pleased overall.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shoes I have struggled to get comfortable shoes like these for about 10 years; these are great and I would buy another pair without blinking. True to size and felt great from the first moment. No break-in period needed. Awesome colors too and I LOVE THEM!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from A disappointment I was excited to purchase a new pair of Brooks Cascadia. Last year I had purchased an older model, the Brooks Cascadia 6 in a loud green color on sale at REI. I have difficult to fit feet and found the Brooks Cascadia 6 my very favorite shoe. However the newer model, the Cascadia 8, is built on a wider shoe base. It will never fit. In my usual size a 7, the shoe is too wide and too long, in a 6.5 the shoe is too short and too wide. What a disappointment!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time trail runner I'm a road runner who just signed up for her first trail run and the Cascadia 8 is the only trail shoe I've tried. I've been off-road before but I notice a definite difference running in these shoes than in my previous road shoes. They provide great traction! Every now and then I still have to add in some road time and the Cascadia has held up okay--they certainly don't have the cushion that I'm used to but the impact really isn't that uncomfortable. I think this is a solid choice for someone who might have to mix up the runs a little and doesn't have the budget to buy two separate pairs at one time. Also, I have fairly troublesome bunions and find that the cut of the shoe provides enough room in the toebox that I can run comfortably. Nothing is getting squeezed and my heel still gets the snug fit it needs to avoid blisters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stylish Shoes I use these shoes for hiking, running, dog walking, biking to class, and work! Even after hours in them my feet feel great, I've never once been sore from wearing them. My favorite thing about them is the narrow diameter mesh, it allows little dust and dirt to travel though it so my toes never get very dirty out on the Arizona trails. Also, they are fairly water resistant, keeping my toes dry from accidental puddle mishaps. One thing that is not so great is that the fabric near the lace holes is very weak and wears away quickly. This isn't really a problem, but makes the shoes look older than they are.
