Shoe Review: Brooks Cascadia 13

The Brooks Cascadia platform is really their flagship trail platform, but it has always been a little hit or miss for a lot of people. One of the biggest complaints has been the narrowness of the shoe and especially the tapered toe, but this update to the Cascadia 13, while not dramatic, looks like it might just fix all those complaints and restore people’s faith in the model.

The Brooks Ghost 11 is a great looking shoe from the outside. They are another of Brooks perennial mainstays with typically minor updates year over year.

Adidas SolarBOOST 2

Shoe Review: Adidas SolarBOOST

When the SolarBOOST was announced, we were excited to say the least. Adidas has been a bit dependent on the Ultraboost line for a while, so the idea of something, was truly exciting. On top of that, they hit the style on the head again coming up with something both performance oriented, but also entirely fashion forward. Construction: Upper The upper on the SolarBOOST is all techfit, multiple layers of knit fabric, ...

Altra Escalante 1.5 2

Shoe Review: Altra Escalante 1.5

When Altra introduced the Escalante last year, it is safe to say everyone was a little skeptical. They were departing from their traditional mesh/overlay driven upper, they had swapped their entire midsole with this whole new thing called EGO... I mean, what were they thinking?
