Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fit I've been running in Cascadia's for years. This GTX version is perfect. I was fearful that the size would be too tight because of the gore-tex. Not the case. I wear size 12 and usually need to get .5 size bigger in Salomon and Nike. These are true to size. Very comfortable out of the box as well. Surprising.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great shoe bad sock choice on my part? I just picked these up an took them on a day hike. i always wear wool socks with boots these are my first trail runners. and i did get blisters on the top of my toes 4 in total 1 on 1 foot 3 on the other. im going to put it on sock choice but its still up in the air. other than that they are extremely comfortable. the rock plate is great. i do believe the lacing system could be improved. but overall very satisfied with the product hopefully i an get the blister issue figured out and run these on my 2017 AT thru hike. if not time to look for another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pair of shoes I ever owned I own this pair of shoes and bought them from REI. These are the best pair of shoes I have ever owned. They are super comfortable and great for walking on snow/ice. They are very lightweight. I use them for hiking, backpacking, trail running, etc. I highly recommend them. These are waterproof too, so definitely my go to winter shoes. I am planning on using them for some thru hikes and section hikes. I am going to use them on the Appalachian trail. I went to the store to try it on and walked around the store with lots of comfort and ease.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love but snug Love the Brooks trail runner shoes but they run a bit small and narrow in the toe box. Have to wear a thin sock to compensate for the snug fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great support and fit for trail running This is my fourth pair of Brooks and my second pair of Cascadia's. I loved the Cascadia 10 and when it was time to upgrade I went with the 11 GTX for the support, comfort, and now waterproofing. I haven't had any issues with blistering and I don't feel as the shoes are too snug, both of my Cascadia's are size 10 and fit the same. I've used these for both trail running & hiking and provide plenty of support and comfort. Highly recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cascadia takes me anywhere This is my second pair of Cascadias. It was just time to replace the many trail miles on the pair before. The shoes are well made from top to bottom. The soles grab all the surfaces I throw at them and get me moving easily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Stable shoes This is my first pair of hiking/trail shoes, I'm a real big believer on wearing boots, but wanted to give shoes a try, these work really well, they're great for every day use, when I took them to the trail I realized why they were so stiff and have a firm sole, it prevents you from rolling an ankle, although there was times I did have to catch myself but I think that just goes back to always wearing boots. Deff wouldnt wear them in the back country. And it's a big plus that they're water proof

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trail shoe!!! Ran with this shoe primarily on bark with good stability. Tested it on extreme trails that included mud and packed snow (with spots of bare ice). Traction held up well the only surface it does not work is on bare wet ice (but it would be foolish to run in that surface with normal pace). 4-point pivot system works as advertised , goretex kept my foot warm in cold mud and snow.

I have experienced trail running shoes in the past that drained well after creek crossings and very sloppy conditions. I'm just not sure what benefit there would be in a shoe that is waterproof with Gortetex. Would this just increase the price?

Asked by: Usmcbigdog
A waterproof trail runner, especially one with a Goretex liner, will keep your foot dry from external water sources as long as no water goes over the liner and into the shoe. Once you get water into the shoe, it will take a very long time to dry out, and certainty will not when you are still active. Some people like the added protection of a waterproof liner in their running shoes, hence the price increase, but many others do not like it at all.

Is the Gore-Tex squeaky? I've a pair of GTX Ghost from Brooks and found them to be quite noisy. Has anyone had this problem with the Cascadia GTX 11? Thank you!

Asked by: dparker23
​Squeaking is not typically associated with the Gore-Tex membrane. This type of noise is created from a shoe partially delaminating in the midsole and the walking action creates a whistle or squeak as the air moves in and out of the compromised area. We have not found this to be typical of any Brooks' shoes.

Do your feet get hot with the gore Tex ? Can I wear them in the summer or is it better in cooler weather ?

Asked by: Glenn G
​Running shoes with Gore-Tex such as the Cascadia 11s can be hotter compared to running shoes that do not have a waterproof breathable membrane. Should you choose to use them in the summer, we recommend a lightweight sock with moisture wicking capabilities.

How this shoes performs in a wet rock? I have seen lots of good shoes for muds but not very good for wet rocks, in fact they become more slipery on these conditions.

Asked by: Ed Kimura
The Cascadia 11 GTX Trail-Running Shoes offer great traction in wet, rocky conditions.

Is this shoe advisable to be worn while hiking in water (like narrow's at Zion National Park)?

Asked by: Dgooli2
A ventilated shoe that drains water may be a better choice for use in the Narrows.
