Born and raised to run on trails, the Brooks Cascadia 9 trail-running shoe offers aggressive traction and a responsive, supportive ride that you can take on your ultras or just quick outings in the woods. This men's sneaker features a breathable, moisture-wicking synthetic and nylon/polyester mesh upper with synthetic overlays; the geometric pattern wraps the foot for a close fit. The HPR Green outsole of the Brooks Cascadia 9 outdoor shoe features a special decoupled crash pad design that ensures a smoother landing and is made with dispersed silica, resulting in premium wet-dry traction for excellent skid-resistance with an environmentally friendly twist.

Brooks Cascadia 9 Reviews:


Great trail shoe!

I use these shoes for my trail runs. Straight out of the box I ran 15 miles without any discomfort. these shoes gripped well on wet surfaces. Today I ran 16 miles on trail and had no issues. The surfaces I encountered were wet and had red clay, leaves, roots, rocks, mud, puddles, and many hills. From my first run, the Cascadia 9's left me with the impression that they would protect my feet for miles to come. The only downside is that they feel a little heavier than my normal day-to-day shoe, which is the ghost 6 road running shoe. However, I would trust my Cascadia's to get me through more than the ghost. Not to downplay Brooks Ghost (I ran a 100 mile trail race using 2 pairs of ghost 5 without any issues)which has worked out great for me.

I have run about 45 miles in my Cascadia's thus far (3 runs within a week). The only time I slipped was while running downhill on rocks covered in moss. Not much surprise there. Also, roots and rocks underfoot weren't very noticeable. After about the 14 mile mark when I encountered the moss covered rocks, I actually said to myself, "it was about time I found something these shoes couldn't do."

I would recommend this as a training shoe or trail marathon and above racing shoe.

5'6" male, 135lbs, mid/forefoot striker. 2:56 road marathoner.

I somewhat reluctantly gave this shoe 4 stars because of the slightly added weight. I would like to note that I normally wear road shoes on trail, which tend to be lighter. All in all a great shoe and my next pair of trail shoes will likely be Cascadia's.

PCT approved

Avid Sierra backpacker - 3 months on the trail (or off) summers - (one of the perks of being a high school teacher).
Anyway, hanging out Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite last year, I had opportunity the meet /hike with many of the PCT crowd coming thru...mile 947. BTW, I had previously done the trail 2005.

Looking for new (lighter) trail runners to replace my heavier boots when backpacking on-trail and carrying under 30-pounds, I asked what shoe they recommended/ preferred/ wore on the trail. Surprisingly, the majority I asked swore by Brooks Cascadias. I had never heard of them.

Bought a pair soon after - maybe 300 miles since - on-trail with pack. No problems...recommended.

I've been running in the Cascadia since they've come out...Brooks redeemed themselves with this shoe after putting out the Cascadia 8 which was a terrible shoe...period. It fell apart after a week (namely the eyelets where the laces went through). Anyway that shoe is long gone and done and over with. The 9 is a great shoe...feels great to run in and is a much better looking shoe than the 8's. I will be purchasing another pair after I get done writing this. Buy it - you won't be disappointed!

Awesome out the box

Right out of the box the Cascadia 9 was great. Went out on a short 3.5 mile trail run (mix of gravel, sand and rock). There was great protection underneath from rocks and good support. Cannot wait to get out for another run.
