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.

More BORING(!) colors. C'mon already!

Seriously, Brooks? Another lineup of boring colors for us women with wide feet who must definitely be 70+ years old. C'mon, give us some FUN, COLORFUL shoes already! Zzzzzzzzzzzz.....

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 worn Brooks sneakers for a number of years. I have tried different shoes for comfort and support. It seems to me that Brooks should leave well enough alone when they have a good product and it works.
    I loved the Adrenlins until they changed them and the Addictions also. Now I am trying the Dyads and so far they are okay but not as good as Brooks usually are.

      Comments about Dyad 8:

      I loved the 7s. They were the best shoes I ever ran in. I owned several pair and was ready to try out the 8s but they were very disappointing. I bought my usual size and had to return them because they didn't fit. I had to buy a different size in wide and while they technically fit, they are really uncomfortable especially in the toe box. They pinch and press in weird places and make my toes feel like they are losing circulation while running. They especially press along the top of the toes. The wides feel comfortable there, but the heel slips a little and most of the discomfort occurs in the toes. I'm so disappointed. I will never buy another 8, though I will be happy to try out the next version again if they fix the toe problem.

      Toe box way too narrow

      Comments about Dyad 8:

      Just like many of the other commenters have noted, the toe box is WAY too small. It seems there was a dramatic re-design between 7 and 8 and now even the very wide (2E) shoe has a much more narrow front half-- its a real shame as Brooks is one of the free very wide foot running shoes that work for me. Definitely avoid if you don't want very smushed feet!

          The fit is very good for my foot...ample toe box and narrow heel. The way they lace seems to keep my foot is a good position. I also like the new shoelaces. Because of elasticity there is no need to double tie. Thanks for the pair for my Dyad 7's.
