Additional Information

Not all runners are created equal. Luckily, the Dyad 8 meets the needs of unique feet from orthotic-devotees to flat-footed fellas. Built on a linear platform, this crazy comfortable trainer doesn’t over-complicate sometimes complicated feet. The Dyad 8 running shoe now includes BioMoGo DNA in the midsole for a lighter, more flexible shoe, no-sew suede overlays for added structure without added stitching, and a plusher in-shoe feel.

    These feel narrower in the mid-foot than the Dyad 5, 6, and 7. That's the only noticeable change that I can detect.

    Comments about Dyad 8:

    These shoes are mostly what I use. I have 2 or 3 pairs and switch between them for everyday and running.
    The 8s seem to be exactly the same shoe as the 7s, but with a nicer color design, so they look way better.
    The feel is as if there were no changes; but, having used them for a couple of long runs, I find that the 8 rubs on my small toes, when the 7s never did so.
    Might try a wider pair next time, but will stick to the Dyads.

      Comments about Dyad 8:

      The only suggestion I would make is that when you use professional orthotics it spreads your toes out more and the toe box could be slightly larger on the D width. I have talked to other orthotic wearers and some have switched to New Balance for that reason. Switching to an E width makes the shoes too big. Keep in mind we are talking about the larger sizes, I wear a 15. I'm no expert but you may want to do a test with a hard orthotic or any orthotic for that matter in a larger size to see.

        Comments about Dyad 8:

        Brooks was one of 3 brands mentioned by my Podiatrist who prescribed a neutral and breathable shoe for use with my new orthotics. It was hard enough finding a neutral size 11 4E shoe, much less a pair in a dark color I needed for work. I took a chance on the Dyad 8 and they easily accepted the orthotics still leaving room for my 60 yr. old wide flat feet. It only took (2) 10 hour shifts of being on my feet to break them and the orthotics in. They are too new to rate for durability having only been worn for (4) 10 hr. shifts. They look great but I wish Brooks would also offer them in all Black size 11 4E (please, hint hint). Bottom line they are very comfortable and with the orthotics have really eased my feet/legs pain.
