Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cascadia not what they used to be ... I have Cascadia 7 and loved them -- wore them endless miles until soles wore out, but uppers remained good; still have them. This summer, I had Cascadia 10, and the uppers ripped and wore out even though the treads are good. I just tried to replace the 10s with new 11s, and the seam at the bend of the foot/toe on the right shoe was really uncomfortable; I got a replacement pair which was better, but still not right in the bend of the big toe and the side of the pinkie toe on the right shoe. With regret, I am giving up on Cascadia for now ... Super disappointed, because these have been my "go-to-shoe" since 2013 ...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good change! I wore the first couple generations of Cascadia, and about two years ago went to buy the next generation and they were a completely different fit...completely bummed me out because I love the old fit and they were well constructed.This new generation 11 is more like the original fit. The toe box is still not as wide, but overall they fit great. I usually wear an 7.5 but went with an 8 to give a little more room. Whatever runs across the top of the foot just below the bottom lace was sort of a bugger to break in...took about 30 miles to soften up. Very happy they listened to their customer's requests to change a few things back! I'm buying 4 of them in case they change things again. Happy Trails.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wish they would last... They are comfy, lightweight, and great traction. I continued to buy pair after pair because of those pros... But.. The area by the toe box is a bust. Each pair has failed in that area before the support and soles are ready to be done. I am an avid trail runner, multi hour excursions, dirt, skree, snow, puddles... I love Brooks and have always ran in them...trying their Puregrit....and another brand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Its a tight fit I should preface this by saying I like my shoes loose. I tie my sneakers once and then just slip them on and off. I have run a 12 hour trail run with shoes this way and for me its the only way it works. The all around fit of the shoe is tight and not like I need a bigger size they weren't tight in the length. They were tight around my entire foot. Just not as good as previous Cascadias.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cascadia trail runners I love these shoes. I have narrow feet and have a difficult time finding running shoes that fit. The shoe is a great fit and provides good stability. It also has good reinforcement across the top of the toes to prevent the big toes wearing through the top of the shoe. I would like to thank the saleswoman at the Spokane REI store who assisted me. She really did a great job helping find the best shoe for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so far so happy... i have been buying Brooks Cascades for about 6 years, and love the fit. the first pair i got were too short, so i exchanged them for a 1/2 up. i went with the 8.5, my size, on the subsequent pairs and they fit now it seems that they have configured them so fit in my size. i am still breaking these in, at first the top of the arch felt tight and uncomfortable, but after a few times they seem to be fitting nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fixed my knee pain These shoes are perfect for the trail I hike every day. They have such great support and they push my foot back into the heel seat as I lace them. I absolutely recommend these for your daily hike on uneven terrain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cascadia a for life I wish I could say I've always ran in Cascadias, but I can say for certain, I won't stray. Starting in the 9s, toe fit was wide, but extremity comfortable. The 10s ran more narrow and these 11s are the perfect in-between. No where does it state that they are waterproof, but for mucky trails, these will keep you dry (... as you want to be as a puddle jumping trail runner.) Customer service with Brooks is unbelievable- if for some reason you disagree with me. Get out there and enjoy the Cascadia 11s!

Always have worn brooks road running shoes for pavement and had separate shoes for trails, last cascadia fit really snug, use them for xfit looking for all around road/to off road post workout since I frequently do both in one run will these accommodate?

I'm prone to plantar fasciitis if my shoes don't have excellent arch support. Will these work for me?

Asked by: TerrieS
The Cascadia 11 Trail-Running Shoes provide good arch support. The stock insoles can also be removed so you can use aftermarket insoles if needed.

I'm looking at the Cascadia and the PureGrit. Wondering why the Cascadia is rated for rugged trails but does not feature a rock plate while the PureGrit is rated for light trials and HAS a rock plate....???

Asked by: jmacaz
The Cascadia 11 Trail-Running Shoes do feature a Ballistic Rock Shield in the forefoot of the shoe. The Cascadias offer more cushioning making them better suited for more rugged trail running adventures.

The salesperson said these have great arch support but the description and specs don't mention it. He said they are great for over pronators which I am. They felt good in the store, but am wondering if I will regret wearing them on long training walks.
