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.

      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.

        Comments about Dyad 8:

        I've purchased 3 pairs of dyad 7's. I love the cushioning and comfort. I've purchased another pair for my wife and convinced my dad to buy a pair. Everyone loves them. I can't wait to get my next pair of dyad 8's.

        My main issue with the shoe is a personal one, but my big toe seems to rub a little hole in the mesh fabric after a while, within a 8 weeks of use. It's happened to all of my pairs in the same spot, just a personal issue with how my foot moves when walking i guess but it is repairable with a tiny bit of duct tape from the inside when you notice a break through the foam layer under the outer mesh fabric. It's not noticeable from the outside if you do this. Another wear issue is the insoles seem to come apart after a while but brooks has never failed to replace them for me asap when i write them. I'm a big guy and probably put a lot more stress on these shoes than most people. All this being said, no other shoes compare in comfort.

        One main request as a wide footed (4e) person who walks several miles a day. Please give us more love and offer some more colorways for this model. Our choices are limited and this is such an excellent shoe!

        Comments about Dyad 8:

        Im 5'10", 280, 10.5 (true shoe size) wear 11.5 4E. These shoes are great for gym,road, all terrain, walking or jogging. I'm hooked on the Dyad series because of the cushioning. I tried "The Beast" and cannot jog in them, too rigid and no cushion, I use "The Beast" for work. I run 3-5 miles a day. Before the Dyad shoes, I wore NIKE and I would have Left forefoot and pinpoint R knee pain after a run. No complaints on the Dyad 8, upgraded from the 7. I recommend these for the Big Guy runner who has wide flat feet. I listed the shoe's con as "heavy", but it's a small price to pay for a cushioned ride and it's not a drain on me and what do you expect for 4E's (thats alot of shoe).
