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

Segmented Crash Pad

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.

    Lot of cushioning,heavy and not suited for my feet

    2016/10/13 | Greensboro, NC |

    Its good shoe with lot of cushioning and support but it didn't feel right for my arch type I have a feet which comes in between flat to medium arch so I tried this shoe but didn't feel right as it didn't support arch properly also its heavier. I believe till now I only feel comfortable on Adreline GTS

    Not for me

    2016/10/05 | Indiana |

    I supinate when I run. I have a high arch. The outfitter put me in the dyad 8 because I also have a wide foot and these felt good at the store. I wore them for the last 10 weeks of training for a half marathon. Only 160 miles and the outside edge is worn out. I had alot of feet pain on all my long runs. Maybe a good shoe for some, just not for my running style.

    feels flat and stiff

    2016/09/16 | Burke, VA |

    Like that this is designed for use with orthotics -- which I use -- but running in it is hard, as the shoe seems flat and unresponsive with no spring to it. I feel like I'm hobbling along in boots! In contrast, my Glycerine shoes are responsive and springy.

    GreaaaaaT!

    For Orthotic Wearers

    2016/09/14 | San Francisco, CA |

    The insole is probably one of the thickest insole that I have ever come across short of those OTC memory insoles. Though I like the insole and I thought I bought a large enough shoe to accommodate my insole, I ended up inserting a Spenco Comfort insole in order to use my orthotic.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Good service

    2016/09/09 | Midlothian, TX |

    Require orthotic due to ankle fusion. Doc suggested I wear Brooks, which I've done forseveral years.

    Yes, I would recommend this!
