Cascadia 12

12.1 oz. (343 gr.)

Heel Drop

List Price
130 US$


Road runners coming from a stability background and needing a stiffer shoe that can handle larger runners as well as tough terrain look no further.

The Cascadia has become a standard in the trail shoe industry, and very little has changed since it was released in 2005. This is a built up shoe with little flexibility, great cushioning, and a heavy duty rock plate aimed at tackling rough terrain over long distances.

At 12 ounces with a 10mm heel drop the Cascadia harkens back to trail shoes before the minimalist movement started influencing designs in 2010. With this latest version runners have complained about the narrowing of the toe box, but much of the design stays the same and older models are still available for sale.

Who is it for?

If you’re currently a road runner used to running in shoes such as the ASICs Kayano, Brooks Adrenaline GTS, or other highly built up road shoes, this will likely comfortable transition.
