Brooks Cascadia 6 Review

The Brooks Cascadia 6

Victoria looks at Brooks' trail shoe


Up until a couple of months ago, wearing a trail shoe was more of a means to an end, a shoe to avoid those embarrassing slips or injury. My trail shoes were ok, just rather stiff and clumpy; they did their job, stopping me slipping. But they were always a second choice to my road shoes, which I would wear off-road if I could possibly get away with it.

I then tried a pair of Brooks Cascadia. For what is an off-road shoe, they have been extremely comfortable for my neutral gait; more like a slipper than a shoe. They have excellent grip for wet mud, great cushioning and weigh in at 300g, so they’re nice and light too. Their cushioning level is high (containing the Brooks DNA system prevalent in their road shoes) so good for prolonged periods of road or compact footpaths.

Their 4-point Pivot System helps adapt the shoe to every surface, fantastic for the non-fell terrain of the South! Also, the Ballistic Rock Shield underfoot disperses the impact of stepping on stones or branches.

The upper is not water-resistant like some other road/off-road shoes, but this relatively minor setback is off-set with its comfort and grip.

We have both the men's and women's version of this shoe in stock
