Not all runners are created equal. Luckily, the Dyad 8 meets the needs of unique feet from orthotic-devotees to flat-footed fellas. Built on a linear platform, this crazy comfortable trainer doesn’t over-complicate sometimes complicated feet. The 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.

      Comments about Dyad 8:

      Nike's to Brooks. When it comes to running shoes this was the best decision I have ever made. I had been buying Nikes for 40 years however I found that each year they were made very cheaply, they were not very durable, and most important they were not very comfortable anymore. Six months ago I decided to venture out and try other brands of shoes to walk and run around in. That's when I came across the Dyad 7s. This show was heads and toes better than any Nike shoe. It had a lot of cushion, very comfortable, and durable. Brooks just came out with the Dyad 8 so of course I had to pick up a pair. It was perfect timing because the Dyad 7s were getting a bit worn. The Dyad 8s were even better. I'm so happy that Nike cut corners to make a cheap product which is why I looked at the Brooks. In regards to running shoes, making the switch from Nike to Brooks was the best decision I have ever made.

      These feel narrower in the mid-foot than the Dyad 5, 6, and 7. That's the only noticeable change that I can detect.

      Comments about Dyad 8:

      These shoes are mostly what I use. I have 2 or 3 pairs and switch between them for everyday and running.
      The 8s seem to be exactly the same shoe as the 7s, but with a nicer color design, so they look way better.
      The feel is as if there were no changes; but, having used them for a couple of long runs, I find that the 8 rubs on my small toes, when the 7s never did so.
      Might try a wider pair next time, but will stick to the Dyads.

        Comments about Dyad 8:

        The only suggestion I would make is that when you use professional orthotics it spreads your toes out more and the toe box could be slightly larger on the D width. I have talked to other orthotic wearers and some have switched to New Balance for that reason. Switching to an E width makes the shoes too big. Keep in mind we are talking about the larger sizes, I wear a 15. I'm no expert but you may want to do a test with a hard orthotic or any orthotic for that matter in a larger size to see.
