DNA Midsole

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 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

    My go to shoes

    2017/05/06 | USA |

    I've been running in these since Defyance 3 and plan to continue doing so. For some reason the Blue pair of Defyance 9 didn't fit as well as this Red pair.

    My goto shoe until further notice!

    2017/04/28 | Franklin, MA |

    Bought these midway through training for a half marathon. They fit perfectly and there was absolutely no break-in period. Felt like I had been wearing them for years. Great overall running shoe.

    Foot Party

    2017/04/21 | NYC |

    They look substantial, but feel light as air. I had the D7's, and was like, "What could be different?" Then put these on and exhaled relief for like 5 minutes straight. My girlfriend thought something was wrong. But I was just in shoevana.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Version 9 performs same as previous Defyance versions

    2016/09/08 | Jacksonville Beach, FL |

    This is at least the 5th version of the Defyance model that I have owned. I like being able to order the same size of a shoe model that has worked for me in the past and find that it still fits and works for me.

    Yes, I would recommend this!
