The shoes are the sixth edition of the popular Cascadia line, and boast some improvements over previous editions. They have a new outsole with more traction, and the Brooks DNA material is now in the midsole as well as the heel and forefoot. A new pivot post in the medial forefoot provides increased flexibility in varying terrain.

Available for men and women, the Cascadia 6 has a breathable upper that keeps feet cool and comfortable even in hot-weather runs. The combination of mesh and synthetic suede does allow water in, but it also has technology to get the water out quickly.

Brooks Logoimages/BrooksWearing down the Brooks Cascadia 6 will take a while, but once these shoes are finally retired, they will biodegrade more quickly thanks to a compound called BioMoGo, found in most Brooks shoes. Comfortable, adaptable and eco-friendly, these are the shoes to get for people who want just one pair of shoes. (MSRP $110)

Karen NitkinKaren Nitkin likes to run, hike, bike, camp and swim. She spends as much time as possible on these activities, while juggling a writing career, family life, and doing errands like laundry and going to the grocery store.

Nitkin lives in Maryland, where the relatively mild climate allows her to run and bike year-round. She also spends at least a few weeks each year in New Hampshire, camping and hiking in the White Mountains. She has set a goal of hiking all 48 New Hampshire peaks that are above 4,000 feet. As of the fall of 2010, she is at number 20, following an epic rain-drenched four-peak overnight in the Pemigewasset wilderness over the summer.
