theres a reason 90% of serious thru-hikers and ultralight backpackers are in Brooks cascadias

this is my second pair of cascadias, 6th pair of Brooks shoes overall. They are by far the best shoe ive ever owned, and im somewhat of a shoe perfectionist. Zero break in, super cozy, perfect compromise of support and cushion, very good tread, good grip on wet rocks for creek crossings.

Brooks has a warning on their site that they arent to be used for backpacking, thats because most people like to hike 30-50+ pound packs. Keep your weight under 30lbs with these shoes or the lack of support will start to show. Your pack shouldnt be over 30 anyways for trips under 4 days.

You will not find a better shoe for ultralighting/fastpacking/day hiking/through hiking, Period
