Brooks Cascadia 7 Review

With my first trail half marathon in the fall, I was thrilled to receive a pair of Brooks Cascadia 7s!

"Designed from the ground up, the Cascadia 7 defines what a trail shoe should be: rugged without sacrificing runnability. Infused with Brooks technology and a bit of insight from ultrarunner Scott Jurek, this amazing piece of equipment features an asymmetric upper that anatomically wraps the foot with conforming materials, a ballistic rock shield and toe protector for dicey terrain, and four-point pivot posts that act like a suspension system for your feet. Top it off with an intuitive lug pattern and this trailblazer is ready to tackle even the toughest terrain."

This is my first pair of true trail shoes - I love them!  I've used the Cascadias for some trail, road, treadmill and hill training.  They are both lightweight and provide super traction and protection on the trails.  With ample room in the toebox and the "asymmetric upper that wraps the foot," they are incredibly comfortable.  Plus I love the fun vibrant colors!  I look forward to continued training and running my first trail half in my Cascadia 7s!

Run Happy!
