Additional Information

Not all runners are created equal. Luckily, the Dyad 8 meets the needs of unique feet from orthotic-devotees to flat-footed ladies. Built on a linear platform, this crazy comfortable trainer doesn’t over-complicate sometimes complicated feet. The women’s 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:

    This shoe has firm arch support and the thickest cushioning of any shoe I've bought - a nice plus since I'm often on harder surfaces. Runs slightly small so get half to full size larger, especially if you wear thicker socks. The only con, in my case, is poor metatarsal support. Since I, like many with flat arches, can experience metatarsalgia(burning in ball of feet), a good motion control/stability shoe that augments arch support with a metatarsal rise is a nice find. This shoe has the first, not the second. The shoe's firm arch support effectively distributes weight to the front of the foot. Since the front part of insole is flat although nicely cushioned, metatarsal pain is made more acute without support. If you have no issue with ball of foot pain, this shoe would very likely work for you. My favorite shoe is still the GTS 14 -- I should've just picked up a second pair vs. going for the newer Dyad 8. I WOULD recommend this shoe to anyone who needs motion control without issues with metatarsal pain.

        Comments about Dyad 8:

        I have a large foot, Women's 12 ee, bunyons included, and it is almost impossible to find a running shoe in my size that doesn't look like a big man-shoe. I have been wearing the Dyad (with my orthotics) for years and am SO excited it finally comes in a feminine color!! Thank you, Brooks!

          Waited so long for this new style to be so disappointed. Should have kept the toebox wide and deep. They will be going back.
