DogMom beat me to it! I was a Brooks Adrenaline ASR fan for a long time (although later models had issues with rubber crumbling off the sole). I tried the Cascadia but it was too narrow in the toe box. Same with Salomon - plus their kevlar-lace didn't work for me. Tried Altra and Hoka. Altra was the better of the two for me, but neither really worked well and I didn't like the extra cushion of the Hokas. I like a firmer ride, like the ASR's provided. I recently moved to Topo's MT-3 and they work well. Wider toe box, narrower heel and just the right amount of cushioning. They do not have a rock plate, so you will feel some objects on the trail. They do look a little funky from the top - Altra-ish, but not a show-stopper. Also, I usually wear a 10.5D but I had to size up to an 11 as they run short. YMMV. Best of luck to you in your search! Happy Trails!
