Made with a considerable mudguard on the entire surface of the shoe, the Cascadia 13 is a good choice for trail running. The shoes look aggressive and they feel aggressive as well. The protective materials are used in combination with a neoprene upper. It is why the shoes are among my recommended solutions when it comes to breathability and flexibility. The adaptive cushioning is not bad either. Every stride feels comfortable and stable, which is great when venturing off the beaten path. You can also rest assured that there is plenty of grip when running on rain as well. The added weight might be one of the downsides of the shoes you need to consider.
