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

Rounded Heel

What is it?

“Rounded Heel” is just a fancy name that we like to use for the rounded and reduced heel on our shoes. The slight curvature in the heel vastly improves the alignment of your body, encouraging a more efficient stride.

How does it work?

It’s really quite simple. The curvature in the heel works to align the body by shifting the contact point forward. As you hit the ground there is a greater clearance distance under the middle of your heel, which aligns force through the center of your ankle, thus reducing internal stress on your body.

    I purchased a gray (or as Brooks likes to call it, 039) pair of these because as a runner, I love Brooks and wanted something sporty/comfy to kick around in. However, I didn't buy them to run in. The gray pair kind of looks more like a casual everyday sporty shoe rather than a running shoe. From a distance, if someone were to see you running in these, they may think "Look at that guy running in his dress shoes." That said, these will be great perhaps in an airport when I'm running to catch my connecting flight, or have to run through the halls at work to get to a meeting. Maybe you're an intern and have to run across a busy street to get coffee and donuts for everyone. No problem in these shoes. They are extremely comfortable, bouncy and supportive.

        Size 1/2 bigger than your typical. Lots of toe box room which is good and important for long runs. Light weight but the stability control is good. I run the other 'pure neutrals' but wind up with calf injuries above 15 miles. These are fine. Used them at Boston.

          Fits true to size and is amazingly light and comfortable. I ran my PureFlow 3's into the ground, and bought a pair of PureCadence 4's for this racing season. The flows were great, but these offer much more arch support and fit my like a glove without being too tight. Highly recommend all around.

            I am an avid recreational runner from 5k's up to the marathon and almost exclusively train/run on streets and sidewalks. As with older versions of the Pure Project Cadence, the 4th version fit my foot like a glove right out of the box. Some advise that shoes should be slowly broken in in preparation for long runs or races; however, this shoe feels like it's ready to go the distance without any "wear" period. I pronate slightly and the Cadence does an ok job providing that additional support.
