Brooks Cascadia 8 trail running shoes are engineered to adapt to the surface and your foot for an exceptionally balanced experience. The Ballistic Rock Shield provides great protection over versatile terrain. A suede geometric pattern is reminiscent of past Cascadia designs and also wraps the foot for a close, secure fit.
Upper: Suede overlays wrap the foot for a close fit. Padded tongue and heel collar enhance instep comfort. Flat laces reduce irritation and pressure points. No-sew upper enhances smooth comfort. An external heel loop makes the shoes easier to pull on and take off. Breathable mesh enhances flexibility and airflow.
Midsole: BioMoGo DNA provides a customized ride for runners of all sizes and speeds while responding to your every step by dispersing impact and providing ideal comfort and protection as the pace changes. A Caterpillar Crash Pad customizes your lay down with just the right amount of cushion and stabilization, giving the runner a smooth heel to toe transition. Removable, perforated insole.
Outsole: Pivot Posting minimizes the ground-contact surface area, reducing the destabilizing effect of trail irregularities. Ballistic Rock Shield provides a toughened thermoplastic EVA sheath between the outsole and midsole that protects the forefoot by spreading out point loads from sharp objects. HPR Green is made with dispersed silica, resulting in premium wet-dry traction for excellent skid resistance and a more environmentally friendly composition.
