Not for high insteps

I slow jog daily off road with my dog and needed an excellent pair of waterproof off road sneakers due to chronic achilles tendon issues. I love my Brooks adrenaline road runners so opted for the Brooks Cascadia trail sneakers despite reviews noting they are tight. I have a high instep and the shoes are, in fact, very shallow although I didn’t step out of them. The first time I used these I had pain on the top of my foot under the laces after the jog, not during the jog, and I wear my laces relatively loosely. I waited until the pain was mostly gone before trying them again yesterday, again taking care that the laces were not tight. They did not hurt during the jog but afterwards I am again suffering pain on the top of my instep. On the plus side I did not have any problems with my Achilles tendons. I simply cannot wear these sneakers again and would return them if I could locate any email or receipt of purchase. They are not a cheap mistake either and I still need a pair of waterproof trail sneakers. Do not buy these is you have a high instep.

These shoes are great for Seattle's rainy winter. So far I've taken them on paved trails and they've kept my feet nice and dry, but I can't wait to get them in the mountains. The only challenge I had was that I have a skinny foot and still the top of the shoe and lacing seemed like there wasn't enough room for my foot and I could barely double-tie them.

Very nice but……

I would have kept these but the toe box is too narrow. Shoe has a firm edging near base that has no give, would have rubbed on toe with every step. Otherwise they would have been perfect. Very nice shoes.

The attention to detail is obvious

These shoes are so impressive -- even on just two outings, I can already tell the difference that the fit makes. Thank you for being so responsible in ensuring shoes are well-matched to purpose and body design.

Should be available in D width

I was really keen to try this waterproof option. Was disappointed that the Gortex option didn’t come in the D width so went with the B width. They aren’t wide enough over the top of my foot. I’m trying to persevere with them but they are really uncomfortable 😞

Gives your feet the support they need

I love the Cascadia 17 GTX. The best! So comfortable for trail running. I only wear the Brooks Glycerins for road running. But I love the Cascadia 17 GTX for trail running and hiking in the mountains. Superb support, comfort, and grip. A very sturdy ride. Very secure. Most definitely, these shoes are a must in your collection. Highly recommend. A Must Have. I love the design this year! Perfection.

Great grip and ankle support

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I use these shoes for running, walking and as I was breaking them in I would use them outside doing work around the place. I have wide feet and I love the way my feet had plenty of room but didn’t feel oversized or sloppy feeling. I do have higher arches so this was my biggest concern was not having as much arch support as I need. I do like the color combination and the grip they provide on different kinds of terrain. I run and walk on all kinds of terrain and these have been great for ankle support and just feeling like they are supporting my feet.

Great Running Shoe

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The first thing that stood out to me was the pop of color. Not too bright or too dark. That being said this is my first time wearing Brooks and I'm pretty impressed. The first time I tried them on I noticed they were a little snug but after loosening the strings they fit pretty good. I wore thick cotton socks and found they were pretty comfortable during my first run. I noticed they felt a little heavy while running on flat, smooth asphalt but once I switched to a rocky running trail I noticed the difference. I could easily make it up the trail thanks to the great traction on the bottom of the shoe. My only complaint is that there's not much of an arch support- once I switch out the soles then I would definitely be able to wear them all day. Overall, I can highly recommend them!

Cascade into endless earth with this show

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I can’t tell you the feeling when I opened the box and this show not only brought the color of life to my eyes but I felt excited to try them out! I could never imagine I’d find a shoe that is extremly comfortable to use all day in my daily life but that I can run, walk, and hike in as well this shoe is very universal I even bike in it. The sneaker fits so comfortable I work 16plus hours a day and I don’t feel the urg to take them off at end of night like my other shoes, this shoe is breathable and at the same time protects your feet on the rough hiking trails of dirt mud and puddles and washed up nice and easy I can not stop talking about the comfort a long with daily style for the universal use of this shoe and out and about I have gotten many compliments on them as well. The color and style of this shoe is eye appealing people can’t help but check them out and the grip on the bottoms help when you have loose dirt in your hiking trail or climb rocks I can’t wait to own my second pair of these beauty’s !
