Made to conquer any and all trails, the Brooks Cascadia 16 Running Shoe is a neutral trainer offering all-terrain stability and durability against rocks and debris alongside a softer, lighter cushioning that's perfect for those warmer temperatures. Combining the best of previous renditions, this is the plusher, lighter Cascadia made for exploring all there is to see out under the summer sun, and is as ideal a runner as it is an approach or walking shoe for fast and light hiking and adventures out in the hills.
So what about the Cascadia 16 makes it different? Well for starters, the flexible protection and enhanced adaptability of the Cascadia 16 make it a fantastic choice for beginners looking to challenge themselves against those slightly tougher trails and hills, with a soft under-foot feeling and continuous smooth ride made for exploring new paths. The super-breathable, engineered mono loop mesh with 3D fit print gives an adaptive, effortlessly comfortable fit while retaining complete airflow to stop feet from overheating when out under that oppressive summer sun.
As for the base, the midsole and Trailtack rubber outsole allow this shoe to mould to even the most unruly of floors, with release grooves designed for tough terrain adaptability and exceptional wet/dry traction. An updated Ballistic Rock Shield and gaiter tab on the heel protect feet from errant pebbles and debris while adapting to the severity of the terrain with vertical grooves for side-to-side movement to keep your footing stable and sure. But that’s not all, as you'll never have to worry about soggy feet again with in-built drainage ports allowing unwanted moisture to escape, preventing absorption and extra weight. With improved stability, traction for any weather, and exceptional breathability and adaptability, this is, without a doubt, the perfect shoe for baked summer clay and those unpredictable British summer showers.
