Run Tester Todd here. I’ve been hitting the trails in the new Brooks Cascadia 16, an all-terrain shoe that can handle everything from well-maintained horse trails to rocky, technical terrain. Thanks to the Ballistic Rock Shield that Brooks infused in the design, the Cascadia 16 is an exceptionally stable and protective shoe. And the DNA Loft v2 cushioning makes the shoe 5% softer and 20% lighter than previous models. If you’re looking for a trail shoe that can handle everything from a short hike to an ultramarathon, then check out the Brooks Cascadia 16. Website: http://www.roadrunnersports.com/
