      Comments about Mens Brooks Cascadia 8 Trail Running Shoe:

      I'm into my 3rd generation of Cascadias and put on about 1200 miles a year, running 5 days a week in one pair and playing racquetball twice a week in another. I'm a fairly heavy runner at 185 lbs, but I get about 2000 miles on a pair before the bottoms wear thru the first layer and the right side of my right foot shows thru the shoe. Tough shoes! Please bring back the bright green color choice of several generations ago.

        The best trail runners for a wide foot. i always buy the generation that is on sale at the time to save some bucks but it's always cascadia. I've been wearing them for 3 years now and they're pretty durable for a big buy. I weigh in at about 225. You won't get the full 500 miles out of them on trail conditions but they're going to hold up well is all I can say compared to lots of other brands that can't take the pounding from the Clydesdale's. Great value.

            Comments about Mens Brooks Cascadia 8 Trail Running Shoe:

            Picked up this shoe on the clearance rack. Great compromise shoe. Not perfect on trail, no perfect on road, but they work everywhere. I picked these for my 50k because the Salomon's were wearing too fast. And without road shoes, I was wearing these on occasional street runs too without wearing the lugs too badly.

            In my short trail running experience (in order):
            1: Salomon Speedcross 3: Absolute favorite shoe, but wears out FAST. Out of my budget for that reason.
            2: Asics Gel Scout: Slightly better then the Cascadia, slightly.
            3: Brooks Cascadia 8
            4: Adidas XT: Bought at RRS, but not on site. They are light, traction feels good, but they are not balanced well.
            5: XA 3D Ultra: They were mislabeled as neutral, they aren't. I can't run on them.

              I am a runner over 50 years old who needs some extra cushioning. to achieve this I need: 1. To run off of pavement and 2. A highly cushioned shoe and 3. A shoe that can handle some rough ground yet is okay for a little pavement pounding.
              A BONUS here is it's attractive too! I run 7 days per week 4-6 miles--grass and sandy trails and woods.

                Comments about Mens Brooks Cascadia 8 Trail Running Shoe:

                The Cascadia 8 is a great shoe that is equally at home on the road or the trail. While not quite as smooth riding on the road because of the large lugged outsole and the rock guard in the forefoot, they still are plenty road worthy. I normally wear my Ghost 6's for road runs, but if I plan on going off the beaten path or am running in the snow, I have no problems using these shoes even for my longest training runs.

                The cushioning is plentiful without feeling sloppy or too soft. I have heard some complaints about hot spots because of the overlays on the shoe, but I have never had a problem with this at all. The offset/curved lace pattern is also great for helping lock your foot in, becauee it follows the shape of your foot.

                I originally bought these for use at the Worlds Toughest Mudder. I had about 100 miles worth of training runs in them before the event. I wore them for 45 miles of hell at Worlds Toughest Mudder before changing out for different footwear. They ate up the course and I had no complaints about them.

                Overall, these shoes are great daily trainers. I still have them even after Worlds Toughest Mudder, and they dont show any signs of being ready for replacement anytime soon.

                  Comments about Mens Brooks Cascadia 8 Trail Running Shoe:

                  The Cascadia 8 live up to the performance of the previous versions. This model seems to have a slightly more narrow toe box which I think helps minimize foot slop/movement in the shoe. Good solid traction and great comfort. I've been running ultra-marathons in these for the last 4 years. I've even taken a brand new pair out of the box and ran a 50 miler in them with no problems (no need for break-in). Only minor flaw I've noticed is that toward of the shoes life my big toe starts to wear a hole in the material; but the jury is still out whether the Cascadia 8 will have the same issue since I'm only about 100 miles in these. Brooks could easily fix this by bringing the toe guard (more rigid material) slightly higher over the big toe to minimize wear.

                    I run with my Doberman on roads and trails. After going quickly through two other "high end, top brand" alleged trail shoes that did not last, the Brooks Cascade 8 is the shoe for me. Durable, strong with great cushioning. I will certainly buy these shoes again.

                          Great shoe! I was very surprised at how good these shoes felt right out of the box. I have zero complaints and I definitely recommend these to anyone looking to do any off road running.

                          I'm a professional Steadicam Operator. My rig weighs around 58 pounds but doesn't have the same weight distribution as a back pack. As a result my feet take a beating and I've struggled to find a shoe or lightweight boot that works for me . After seeing the Cascadia 8 on the trails in Mammoth, I'm giving them a try on the concrete stages of Hollywood. After just a couple of weeks, I think this is my go to shoe for work and summer hiking.

                          Bought these for upcoming single-track trail 1/2 marathon in November, knew I would need better traction than my favorite road shoes could offer. The break-in period has been really short, they felt broken in right away. The default top lace setting was too far forward for my liking, glad they have a pair of eyelets higher on the shoe, which I am using.

                          Compared to the other trail shoes I tried on, I felt like my foot rode down inside these more-so than the others, which I like.

                          Side to side stability is good, I expect I will need this on the trail.

                            Tried the NB Leadville 100s and had to take them back as they were too borrow. For these a size up and they work perfectly for absorbing impact on the rough trails as well as providing support. Definitely sticking with Cascadia for trails!

                              Hiked up Mt. Wilson twice already with no feet problems at all. Very comfortable. Offered good support and gave great traction when needed. Fourth pair of Cascadias and they just keep getting better.

                              I've been using the Cascadia's on the trails for about two year and it's a solid trail shoe. Run mostly on a canal towpath. Good support for my pronation. Solid & durable shoe!

                                These shoes are perfect for the rugged trial running in Arizona which includes some sharp shale rocks..great foot protection. They also breath really well.

                                  Purchased these about a month ago to enhance my training for my first Tough Mudder (Philadelphia, 2013...) Was never a trail runner, usually ran recreationally on the road for exercise. They were great for training.
                                  Decided to wear them for the event - they were INCREDIBLE. The traction they provided exceeded my expectations, and things get real muddy and slippery... sure grip/sure footing at all times, even when others were slipping around me. They stood up very well to the beating of the event as well. I threw them in the washer after the event and they are good as (almost) new. I can see using them for many months to come. Great shoe Brooks - Thank you!!!

                                          Let RR salesperson talk me into purchase of C7 (not the 8 but look and feel very similar) which was easy as standing in the store these shoes were featherweight and comfy. Should have known better. Poor construction, poor durability and lack of stability were but a few of the issues. Heel cup actually fell apart. Going back to X Wings!

                                            Brooks Cascadia 8 was highly recommended but sole did not last on rocky trail; only lasted 2 months (130 miles). I got another pair just in case the first pair were a factory defect. Second pair is wearing just as fast. Not sure what shoes to try now???? Maybe Hoka or Salomon?

                                              Regardless of what the person said below, I actually really enjoyed using these shoes. I have done two marathons in mine, and plenty of trail/road training on them, and they feel great! The bottom of the shoes have not worn out for me. I have been using my shoes consistently for about 5 months now and they are not showing any sign of wear on them. I average about 35 to 40 miles a week on these shoes. The traction on the shoe feels like it "sticks" to the rocks. I have done several mountain runs with these, and they are steady and can take on the jagged sharp rocks below. The shoe fits great on me as; I am a size 10 and am 155 lbs.

                                              My only comment is that sometimes, I have had to put larger socks on due to the back of the shoe bothering my achilles tendon area. It sometimes rubs up against it. I used longer socks around my lower ankle, and the problem was solved.

                                              I would recommend these shoes to someone who prefers running off road and running on rough ground. The cushioning is durable, and has not worn out yet for me.

                                                  Very poor thought process, there is way too much overlay with all of the web on the sides, you are setting your self up for hot spots. The collar is way too thick with a course material that will probably wear well, but not very comfortable.

                                                    Im 6'1 205 size 13 shoe with a average arch.I run between 35-45 mi week. This shoe has great traction for any surface. I run from logging roads to muddy trails to loose rock to slippery roots and this shoe performs great. Ive tried a lot of the top dog trail shoes over the last few years and I have finally rested with Cascadia. Just a solid all around good shoe.
