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.

    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 am very grateful that Brooks continues to make this great shoe year after year. I have hard to fit feet -- can't wear shoes with too much arch support, or too much structure. These shoes fit me like they were made for me. Just enough arch support, good cushioning, plenty of room in the toe box. I've been wearing generations of Dyads for years. I buy a new pair every 6 months and use them for running only, moving the old pair to use for lower impact workouts like the bike and elliptical. Love the 8, like the new styling, and that there was adjustments to the side stitching which I found in the Dyad 7 rubbed my outer toe. Big fan!

        I stand all day at work and these DYAD 8's are perfect.

        I have a very high arch and pronation.

        When I wear these shoes, I do not need my custom orthotics. I do not pronate and I do NOT experience knee or foot pain. PERFECT!PERFECT!!PERFECT!!!

          Comments about Dyad 8:

          I've worn Brooks running shoes for several years now on the advice of two different physical therapists. I'm not an athlete (I just enjoy walking and hiking) and I've had a hip replacement, so I need shoes with a lot of cushioning. That is why I only buy Brooks. These Dyad 8s are the most comfortable so far. I just bought them a few weeks ago, so I'll have to report later on how long they last.

              I love these shoes and this is probably my 10th pair of dyads. They are PERFECT for my feet, but I agree with another reviewer that the colors/design are so boring....

                I have no arch at all and struggle to find shoes with good support without a really high built in arch that only hurts my feet. These shoes are great. I only buy from Brooks shoes for people with low arches and these are my favorite yet.
