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.

      Waterproof but soggy

      By midwest runner

      from Chicago, IL

      About Me Avid Athlete

      Pros

      • Comfortable

      Cons

      • Too Stiff

      Best Uses

        Comments about Ghost 7 GTX:

        I thought having waterproof running shoes would be great, especially living in the Chicago area, and I still feel that way, but not with these shoes. I tried running in these 4 times before I gave up and returned them.

        The mesh lining is not breathable. Often my socks were quickly soggy from sweating in the shoe only after a mile or two. I think its because no air would penetrate the lining. This made for uncomfortable distance running and blistering on my feet.

        I will go back to my wool socks and my original Ghost running shoes.

          • Endurance Training

          Comments about Ghost 7 GTX:

          I am a huge Brooks fan ... and have used many of their models through the years. Radius, Glycerin, Launch ... and now Ghost. I use the standard Ghost and this GTX Ghost, rotating them through the week. I run around 25-30 miles a week, on treadmill and outside. Three years ago I switched to Mizuno Alchemy shoes because the Glycerin model became too narrow for me at the toe box. This Ghost model brought me back, and I cant be happier about it. I am flat footed with a wide foot in the front. All I can say is that the fit is perfect. I dont have a super long stride, so I land neutral. When I get tired I start landing on the heel. This shoe is perfect for that as it has not as much rear cushion as the Glycerin but enough to protect you during training when you are tired without carrying too much shoe. If you are super serious about 5-10K you might be able to optimize a bit running on Launch. This is the perfect overall, training/racing shoe ... not too cushy as Glycerin, not so spartan as the Launch (I like them all).

            My husband has wide feet, we can't find a WIDE 2E or 4E pair in GORE-TEX (because Brooks 2E is not that wide). WE live in pacific NW, it rains a lot, for God's sake, please make more Gore-tex products not just one color option, one only pair option & only normal width option!
