After three years of recurring stress fractures and trying numerous models of shoes, I found Brooks Cascadia. I have been a faithful wearer of these shoes for over four years now and LOVE them. Each iteration has its own flavor, but the Cascadia 9 has really hit the nail on the head. These provide great support yet still allow you to feel the road or trail or whatever surface you may be running on. I have used these for 10 mile trail runs in the rain and for a recent half marathon on the road - in every scenario it performs like a dream. Seriously, if you haven't found your "soul mate" shoe yet, this is IT!
Comfortable, but a little wide
Was very excited about this shoe, given all the great reviews online and recommendations from friends and people at various running stores. I was looking forward to receiving the shoe after trying it on and walking around with it in the store. Unfortunately, on the trails (gravel, packed dirt) and especially on roads, I found the shoe to be a little clunky and wide for my feet. The shoe did feel very durable for more technical terrain, however, because I felt that my feet kept floating within the shoe, my ankles and shins took most of the strain. I'm sure this is a great shoe overall (my husband loves his Cascadia 9's), they are just not for me.
Sizing is off but otherwise, comfortable
I bought these shoes for nasty weather running. Tried them out today as a test. They definitely have traction! I wouldn't wear them to run dry roads. That said, when I read "order a half size up", I typically stay with my same size. MISTAKE. I should have ordered a half size DOWN. I wear a 5.5 and I need a 5. Got a blister on my foot from the very first run. SIGH. If this shoe had been the right size, it would have been VERY comfortable. If you have small feet like mine, get the 5.
Great Trail Shoe!
Bought these shoes because I was looking to start trail running and these shoes do not disappoint. Light weight, comfortable, durable, and they look great. I bought them in the mint color and my only qualm about the shoes it gets dirty quickly. I prefer minimal style shoes but they fit perfectly and felt great straight out of the box. This is the first pair of Brooks that I've purchased and my friends rave about Brooks... now I can understand why. Definitely recommend these shoes!
Mine developed a hole
Had to return these for a half-size larger than usual, no biggie. My actual complaint: Only 125 miles on these, all trail with some mud/snow/rain mixed in occasionally. Discovered a hole, on both shoes, right at the top of laces. I expected them to last longer than this, espeically being trail shoes that should be made to endure such conditions. Otherwise, very lightweight and accommodating for trails.

Overall great trail shoe
This shoe was recommended for high arches (which I have), but I found it to have average arch support. The medium width seems to have just a touch of extra room in the toe end of the shoe. Overall, a nice all terrain running/walking shoe with great traction, lightweight, and good shock absorbency.

Comfy, but bad for my alignment
So many people have recommended these shoes to me. These are incredibly comfy and felt more stable than I expected. However after a flat, 4-mile run to break them in, my back and hips were strained badly, and I returned them. I forefoot strike, and I think the high heel drop (10mm) threw off my alignment. Sadly, they went back.

you get what you pay for!
I usually will not spend more than $50 on a pair of sneakers because they don't last. My boyfriend bought these as a gift for me. I use them to play outdoor volleyball on grass. They are very comfortable and do not slip even on damp grass. We will see how durable they are.
This shoe made me a Brooks convert
This shoe is ultra comfortable, providing great cushion and stability. This is my second pair of Cascadias and they have made me a Brooks convert. I love everything about them, down to the laces that stay tied through an entire workout. Thanks for your attention to detail, Brooks!
I'm a total gym rat and I workout lots. I bought this shoe for the versatility and comfort. I wanted to be able to take them on the road and be comfortable know matter where I was. this shoe doesn't fail. My sister is now looking for a pair.
LOVE THIS SHOE
I run on very rough terrain and I love this shoe. It was replacement for my ASICS Gel-Scouts which I was very disappointed it. These Brooks, however, are perfect. Stability is great, traction is amazing. Love them!

will be running mostly country roads: loose sand & rocks. will be training for a 1/2 marathon, that will be somewhat trail...had the cascadia 7, & LUVD them. so have high expectations. these feel great so far.
Brooks Cascadia is a great product. My feet are warm when running in 25 degree with wool socks. I wonder though if there is a winter and spring version. If so, I'd love to have both pair.
A great overall trail shoe whether your running or hiking. A good balance of flexibility and support. This is my third pair of Cascadias and I'm sure there will be more when the time comes.
Happy overall ¿
The recommendations were to order 1/2 sz larger- I did not find this to be necessary. I have decided to return the shoe and reorder for my regular sz.
