User Review: Brooks Men's Cascadia
Use: trails / gravel roads
Weight: 215 lbs
Price Paid: $85
I bought these shoes due to the fact that they were said the be the "best ultrarunning trail shoe" around. I beg to differ. These shoes are NOT designed for people who overpronate or weigh 200+ lbs. I happen to do both. I will say that these shoes feel great. It's like running in a pair of house slippers.
My problem is that I have had nothing but injuries ever since I put them on. I have had sharp ankle pain, also pain on the front and sides of my knees. However when I use my other shoes the pain goes away with in a day. I will say that I'm upset that I can't use them, they are very comfortable and light and you can't feel a rock or root through them.
So if Brooks would "tweak" them a bit for us bigger runners (and over-pronaters) I would definately give them another try.
