I bought a pair of Brooks Cascadia on the strength that if Sherrie Klover can run 100 miles in them, come first lady and second overall in the Hawk 100 then i should at least give them a try. Now any one who knows me is aware that I run in ToeShoes because of the nightmare I have with regular running shoes.
I started out gingerly aware that I was tipping forward slightly more than normal. I put this down to the sole being way more substantial than I am used to. The second thing I noticed was that my calf muscles were not stretching out as far as they normally would leaving them feeling like I had been riding a bicycle with the seat too low. They were very cushiony to run in without being uncomfortably squishy inside. I did like the feeling of substantiability. I only ran 3.5 miles and at the end my toes were beginning to feel a little numb but not the burning red hot needles that I would normally get even at such a short distance. I will certainly wear them again gradually increasing the distance in the hope that I can get them on side before the cold sets in.
