The updated Brooks Cascadia will successfully face everything you throw at it. Version 15 has a softer, yet more durable, closed-mesh upper. Increased durability in the latest version of the Cascadia is also present in the beefier toe bumper for better protection. Brooks’ “pivot post” system, combined with a wider platform, makes for a very stable trail runner –– the chances of turning an ankle are much diminished. TrailTack rubber on the outsole results in great traction. If you need a durable trail runner to take on everything aside from the most technical of trails this could be your shoe.
