DNA Midsole

What is it?

Brooks DNA is an innovative and uniquely adaptive cushioning system. By adapting to your specific weight, pace, gait and running surface, DNA offers customized cushioning and adds a spring to your step.

Traditional cushioning takes a one-size-fits-all approach, but we know that each runner is different. Brooks DNA was developed to continuously tailor the level of cushioning to your specific needs – even as they change during the run.

How does it work?

Brooks DNA is made up of a highly viscous non-Newtonian material or more simply put, a material that adapts to the specific force you apply to it. Part of the brilliance is that this compound was engineered to perform at the molecular level (picture millions of resilient 'nanosprings').

If you looked at Brooks DNA through a microscope, you'd see that it's made up of individual molecules connected in strands. These strands (which form chains) react to the amount of force placed on the foot, dispersing pressure and providing resiliency. Bottom line of this physics lesson: You get tailored cushioning that reacts to your specific weight, pace, gait, movement and running environment – "made-for-me" cushioning vs. "one size fits all."

And, as with all good technology, we’ve taken it a step further (two steps actually):

  • BioMoGo DNA is DNA technology blended with the BioMoGo midsole to provide adaptive cushioning throughout the midsole vs. just in the heel and forefoot.
  • BioMoGo DNA midsole includes an organic, non-toxic additive that biodegrades the midsole 50 times faster than traditional EVA when it comes into contact with anaerobic landfill microbes (otherwise known as active, enclosed landfills).

  • 30% more cushioning than standard midsole materials (gel or EVA)
  • Twice as much energy return for more pep in your step
  • Great performance no matter your weight or running pace
  • Smoother transition from heel to toe

Segmented Crash Pad

What is it?

The Segmented Crash Pad customizes your foot's lay-down to provide amazing cushion and smooth heel-to-toe transition throughout the run.

How does it work?

We know that a key component of maximizing your run is to provide the smoothest possible heel-to-toe transition. The Segmented Crash Pad is one technology we use to achieve this goal.

Shaped like a caterpillar, the Segmented Crash Pad is a midsole made up of independent, yet fully integrated shock absorbers. As your foot strikes the ground, the segments work together to customize your individual lay down to provide the right amount of cushion and seamless heel-to-toe transition for you – making the most of all that effort you put into each stride.

So I have the flattest feet on earth. I use the Lynco inserts WITH this sneaker. It is by far, THE BEST SNEAKER one could find. I've worked out harder and lesser over the years at different intervals in life and this sneaker has never let me down. There's a reason why people who are serious about running, COMFORT and PERFORMANCE choose the Beast along with their other shoe line up. They used to wear (seemingly) much worse but as of the last couple of years, they seem to be much better in terms of durability. When I say durability I specifically mean their ability to last as long as an average sneaker would. It was VERY noticeable but again, seems to be better now though they still will never last quite as long as some of the other ironically less well made brands. But with that being said, it's not like you're going to be going back and forth to the store to buy sneakers like you're buying milk from the grocery store or anything. They last long enough. This is THE ABSOLUTE BEST SNEAKER TO BE FOUND and as you can see, they finally stepped their game up with the hot red and gray color scheme. I can't recommend this shoe enough and yes, I am a real person and no one asked me to post this truth. Best of luck, happy trails and blessings!

8 years ago, I injured my foot on the front edge of the forefoot pad in the Beast. I'd switched to running almost-flat terrain instead of steep mountain trails, and I think my foot slid forward a bit and there was a slap slap slap running on that flat terrain with a slight down slope. I'd used the Beast for 4 years then.

I've just tried the Beast again. For two runs. Somehow that forefoot pad and the front edge where the harder material starts is hitting the knuckle of that bone in my foot. Sent them back. Bought the Saucony Hurricane instead, and they're the best yet -- replacing the late Adidas Salvation 3, which I'd switched to after the Beast.

I wear orthotics in both shoes, and a 3/4" heal lift under the orthotic in one. The beast is very well built for all this -- a better ride than the Saucony. But the forefoot pad hits that knuckle of my foot. Ow.

Hope this feedback helps. Thanks for having the guarantee.

        I run with these daily. They are very comfortable for short runs but for the very long term runs my knees start to feel the pain more than other brands; having custom inserts made to see if it solves the problem, I suggest testing the shoes yourself.

          Comments about Beast '14:

          I was advised to buy this shoe due to the fact I am about 6ft/250lbs. I run about 1 or 2 times a week. I think this shoe has great support but not great cushioning(which is what I needed). It felt big and "clunky" and really felt uncomfortable in the first mile. For the price they felt no better than my cheaper running shoes. I sent them back.

              Played contact sports for years, spent 12 years in the military, and my feet took a beating. Had some surgeries, and needed rehab/intense physical therapy back in 2006. Every doctor, nurse, and PT all said the same thing. Pronators = Brooks Beast. I have custom orthotics, and they fit nicely into the shoe, but honestly I save them for wear with other shoes – don't need them in the Beast. I have bought two pair every year since. They do wear a bit fast, and a few more color choices would be great, but they are well worth it. Highly recommend for pronators!
