Brooks Cascade 11Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kimberly from Ohio on Thursday, August 24, 2017My grandson loves them and thinks he can run faster and jump higher. He has his left foot that turns in and with Brooks extra support he does not have that problem. True to size .
Good but can be betterVerified Buyer Reviewed by Tomek the Ref from Missouri on Wednesday, August 16, 2017First of all overall the Cascadias are very good shoes, the fit is a bit snug in the front and mid of the shoe. The heal is well padded and locked into place. The grip is excellent and the cushioning is more than adequate for all day wear. Additionally the shoe is on the heavy side of the spectrum but that is to be expected given the amount of padding and protection this shoe offers. The biggest negative against the shoe is the tongue. The way it is stitched to the body of the shoe at the bottom causes pressure on top of the foot right in front of the toes. This gets really annoying over time and can be downright painful over time. I am a soccer referee with plantar flasciitis so I stay away from wearing cleats. I buy Trail Running shoes because of the grip and comfort they provide. Most of my past shoes always blew out on the sides because of all the lateral motions that I typically do. I'm hoping that because this shoe is more armored than my previous shoes (Merrell all out crush light and Brooks Pure Grit 2, New Balance Training shoes and Adidas Vigors) they will last more than a season. Another small negative is the fact that the shoe laces are barely long enough. Overall the shoe has many positives with one big negative. If they fix the tongue and they last I will definitely buy again. As of right now the many positives of this shoe outweigh the one negative.
Stiff and narrowVerified Buyer Reviewed by Looking for a great deal from East coast on Wednesday, August 9, 2017My feet fit best in Saucony running shoes, but I thought I would try these. Compared to Saucony, these are not plush and cushy, and they are more narrow. I have the laces at maximum width - hope they stretch out. In their defense, when running over rocks on gravel roads, the rocks don't hurt, maybe because the sole is stiff. Based on some reviews, I sized up 1/2 size. The shoes are a little long, so I don't think that was needed.
Great trail shoeVerified Buyer Reviewed by Fabfive5 from FL on Friday, July 28, 2017Love the vivid colors. Size is appropriate for a "12.5." Good traction on roots and rocks while running. Not the most cushioned shoe I have owned but it's not meant to be in that category.
Not pretty but solidVerified Buyer Reviewed by Walkerworks from Vermont on Wednesday, July 26, 2017Neon green was all they had left in my size...but they're solid shoes. Been out three times on serious mountain hikes without a slip or a blister. Worth it.
Great shoe, Great price!Verified Buyer Reviewed by Michael H from CO on Wednesday, July 19, 2017I've had the product for about 3 weeks now. So far I've climbed 5 fourteeners in CO (all 11+ miles & 5K+ gain), done some rugged trail and talus running, as well as taken them out for a few street sessions. I love these shoes. No hot spots - I got a 1/2 size up from my usual shoe size and they fit great. The rock plate is amazing. The outside sole seems rugged - I haven't snapped a lug or damaged the foam much yet. I'm impressed. I'm thinking about buying another few pairs if they come around!
Not as much underfoot as I'd hopedVerified Buyer Reviewed by Krista from New Jersey on Monday, July 17, 2017I prefer a more padded shoe. This was for fairly technical trail running and I just needed a little better fit and more cushion.
Forever BrooksVerified Buyer Reviewed by Runnin Mike from PA on Thursday, July 13, 2017I have been using Brooks running shoes for several years now. The Cascadias were purchased as a "work" shoe as I'm on my feet all day on concrete and my other shoes weren't cutting it. As usual, the Brooks Cascadias are extremely comfortable and very well made. Brooks.....never one to disappoint!
Brooks Cascadia 11 Trail RunnersVerified Buyer Reviewed by Ryan from Montana on Thursday, June 29, 2017These came just as promised. The reviews stated they fit a little tight, which is what I'd prefer. Been running with these for a couple weeks now and they're solid. Looking forward to a 70 mile backpacking trip with these in a month.
Question & Answer

“Is there any fabric or stitching around the bunion area of the foot? Anything in that area that would apply pressure to the bunion? ”
No stitching in that area. The fabric is reinforced with rubber from the outside that is glued (melted?) to the fabric, so there is strength without any joints or stepoffs or high spots on the inside. There is a very thin fabric band that connects the tongue to the base of the sole, along the medial and lateral interiors of the shoe. It does not extend far toward the toe box, though, and for most people, it would not touch the bunion area. I have very bony feet with prominent protruding joints, and I never experience pressure points. I have been running with some version or another of Cascadias for three or four years now, both on pavement and on trails, and my feet never hurt.
The whole front of the shoe is on the narrow side, especialy the top. Not quite Puma narrow shoe but definitely as wide as Merrell's. For me the most irritating piece of the shoe was, I no longer feel it, where the tongue is attached to the rest of the upper. As for the bunion, there is no stitching in this area or any other material that would put additional pressure on the foot.
“Is this shoe neutral or for over pronation?”
This is a neutral trail running shoe.
