Jess wrote a review of Brooks Cascadia 11 Trail Running Shoe - Women's on May 16, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
It’s definitely one of the heavier shoes in the trail category, but it doesn’t seem to affect its performance as a high-mileage cruiser that offers loads of protection (including a forefoot rock plate) and comfort. The forefoot rock plate is ideal for the rocky trails that surround Salt Lake.
I've been in this shoe for the last few years & every year they keep getting better.
