Czar of Fashion
I finally got some new trail shoes, opting to continue my affair with the Brooks Cascadia Pivot. I love this shoe, and not just because it’s colorfully garish. It really hugs the trails and is enormously stable. These shoes are just plain awful on the road, but perfect on the soft stuff. Worn casually during the break-in period, they elicit a lovely array of comments, some clearly not meant to be heard.
Honestly, I wish the design were even more bodacious. My pair is more green than the earlier-released chartreuse version, which I would have preferred. Nothing says “trail runner” like loud, obnoxious shoes. At least you’ll be found quickly if you fall off a cliff.
