Rated 2 out of 5 by from Durability issues continue Cascadias have been my go-to shoe for 7+ years. I loved them so much I recommended them to a friend who was just getting into trail-running last year. He started out with the Cascadia 10s and they blew out in the forefoot after less than 100 miles. Given his experience (not unique given many other online reviews noting durability issues where the uppers crease at the forefoot) I skipped the 10s and just rotated my 9s with other shoes. This year, I called Brooks to ask if the issue had been addressed before buying the 11s and was assured that it had. With about 80 or 90 miles on them tears are already forming in the forefoot mesh. I've put 400+ miles on past models and the foam has given out before either the uppers or the tread. Looks like I will need to find a new all-around workhorse.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Creased in toe box ruins shoe I previously used Cascadias and loved them, but there seems to be a design flaw with the 11s. I tried on several pairs at different stores and they all creased in the toe box that was immediate reason for concern. However, I decided to give them a try to no avail.... after running 20 miles I had a pain on the top of my foot where the crease occurred. I have since tried several other runs including several 50ks and the crease in the shoe never improved and the pain continued during each run. Time to switch to a different shoe....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Design Flaw: Toe Box Crease I've been running on Cascadia's for years and have always been happy with them. Much to my chagrin, when I bought the Cascadia 11 I had the same issue that others are complaining about, namely that the toe box creases when you flex your foot. This causes the top, inside portion of the shoe (big-toe side) to rub against the top of the foot. I ran in them once and got painful blisters. The issue is the "stays" that connect to the shoelace loop (see photo). They are made out of a relatively stiff material and don’t flex well with the rest of the shoe. I know Brooks added these design elements to address durability issues with prior versions, but unfortunately this modification appears to have resulted in an unintended and negative side effect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality. Returned after 2 months. 1 Star for the shoes. I was reasonably happy with them in terms of performance. Average but not exceptional. However, within 2 months of use on non-technical trails both shoes split apart near the toes. I am done with Brooks for now. 5 Stars for REI. Returning them for a full refund was incredibly easy. Brooks is a well known brand that happened to make a bad shoe. I appreciate REI standing behind their products and making it right once the shoes turned out to be defective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 375+ hiking miles and so far so good! I owned V9 and was impressed. I bought them on a thru-hike of the PCT and they took me the last 800 miles into Canada. Skipped the V10 due to the negative reports. Purchased V11 at the beginning of March and have roughly 375 hiking miles on them so far. They have worked fine on all kinds of terrain in the Cascades and down along the Oregon coast. Comfortable and holding up well. I am not noticing the crease problem or the uppers wearing out prematurely that a few others have mentioned. These are comfortable shoes, with reasonable cushioning, and good traction, that are walking the walk. Highly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from very disappointed Had a pair of V7's that were the best shoes of any brand I ever owned - they ended up being my wash-the-car, mow-the grass shoes until they totally gave up - this was after many miles of running on and off trail - have tried 2 versions since and they are simply not the same - they don't feel like the same shoe and sadly had to order a different brand - I still like my Adrenalins for gym and walking

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable but not durable I've worn two pairs of these out already on my current AT thru hike. The first pair started to fall apart at about 20 miles. Here is the progression: The tread on the toe will delaminate the first day (no big deal but annoying on new $120 shoes). Then the one weird lace strap on each shoe will tear within 100 miles, forcing you to punch a hole thru the upper in order to lace them. Again, not a big deal except that weak point doesn't seem to serve any purpose besides looks and again, annoying. Then between 100-200 miles the mesh in the toes will blow out unless you see it coming and nip it in the bud with copious of shoe goo. Then they will go another 200 miles before the tread wears out. They are comfortable, I will give them that.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Something is off Wore these shoes for two runs our on some dirt roads. The top portion of the shoe creased in a very uncomfortable way over my big toes resulting in pain/bruising after only a couple of miles. I have used the Cascadia 9's for the past year and they did not have this issue. I will be bringing them back to exchange for another pair, but given the crease happened on both feet I do not anticipate it being a defect of only one set.

I have a pair of the Cascadia 8's, they were great. I am looking to replace them and wondered if the new 11's had the same hight in the arch support. I just got a pair of the Montrail shoes and the 4% arch is not enough when compared to the 8%.

Asked by: pmayer101
Brooks does not provide an arch support measurement for the Cascadia 11's or any other shoe they make. This shoe insole does not have pronation support, but does have high arch support. If you find you need additional support we suggest trying custom insoles such as Superfeet.
