A trusted trail model that’s up for high-mileage training, racing and everything in between, the Brooks Cascadia 8 will see a few significant updates. It’s still set to remain a champ of comfort for distance trail running. This traditional trail shoe should continue to do a good job of navigating rocks, negotiating uneven terrain, and getting grip on hardpack and mud.
What to Watch For
- BioMoGo DNA Midsole: The midsole of the Cascadia 8 will feature a blend of BioMoGo and DNA cushioning, replacing the separate DNA inserts from prior generations.
- Fresh Upper: Tight mesh keeps out grit and debris, while the stitched and welded overlays provide structure for a close fit.
- Updated Crash Pad: The caterpiller crash pad design from prior generations is expanded and accented in this update for a smoother heel-to-toe transition.
- Visible Rock Protection: You’ll be able to see the forefoot rock shield through the outsole of the updated Cascadia 8.
