I got these shoes specifically to hike the Kalalau Trail on Kauai, and they were amazing! I was looking for a shoe that is comfortable, durable and provides the traction I need for muddy trails. I also wanted a shoe that was lightweight, as I didn't want to haul hiking boots on my trip. The Cascadia 10 has all of these features and more! Incredibly comfortable with a ton of trail support. They also have have a pivot technology on each corner of the shoe that prevents your feet from rolling. These shoes also come in some very cool colors. I decided on the grey/green but you can also get a deep blue or bright orange. Highly recommend these shoes for all trail running and hiking.
