The Brooks Cascadia has been a favorite of trail runners around the globe, and the new Cascadia 5 won’t disappoint. We’ve been testing the Cascadia model for years now and it just gets better and better. We tested this shoe on all types of terrain and while these shoes do the job on hard packed trails and pavement, we found these shoes are best suited for the more rugged and rocky trails. The midsole is not only super soft, yet durable, but it is also made of Brooks proprietary Bio Mogo which speeds up the shoe in biodegrading. The upper is made of a synthetic material that can handle whether you’re running into sticks, rocks, mud, or any other abrasive object. If you’re looking to replace last year’s Cascadia’s, we give you the green light to buy another pair and if you are in the market for a change from other trail running shoes, we highly suggest you take a look at the Brooks Cascadia 5.

I’m a big fan of this shoe! It’s light, flexible and has great traction. As an efficient runner I like the minimal support and low to the ground feel. It also does well on the road for when you have to hit the pavement before you hit the trail.
