Explore any trail with confidence in the Brooks Cascadia 17.

Brooks re-designed the Cascadia to give runners more confidence, stability and grip on the trails. So the shoe can adapt to uneven terrain and keep you in control, a brand-new Trail Adapt System integrates the cushioned DNA LOFT v2 foam with a middle-loaded ballistic rock shield and zonal outsole pods.

You get a ton of grip with Brooks’ new TrailTack® Rubber which is inspired by the anatomy of mountain goat hooves with the forefoot outsole being split to give you enhanced traction. Plus, it is made with 25% recycled materials.

You have plenty of cushion to go the distance with the DNA Loft v2 midsole—there are two layers of this cushioning surrounding the Ballistic Rock Shield that gives you protection from roots and rocks without limiting flexibility.

Lastly, the upper is protective, breathable and durable with a TPU toecap and mudguard. Whether you are new to the trails or are an experienced trail goer, the Brooks Cascadia 17 lets you go on more adventures and tackle more trails.

Felt too narrow for me

Brian 8 months ago Verified Purchase

These shoes really rubbed the sides of my feet and I don't have wide feet. Not sure if it is due to the stitching but they were so uncomfortable I had to return them.
