    I am glad I am not the only one!

    2017/04/14 | Tarpon Springs, FL |

    I had the dyad 8 and loved them with the orthotics. Now I am in extreme pain. My orthopedic dr. has tweeked my orthotics various times and nothing makes these shoes comfortable for long. Now the arthritis in my big toe is starting again because of the pressure on the side of the toe. I had none of these problems with the dyad 8

    Bring back the 8 pretty please...

    I am so disappointed with the Dyad 9. I have worn the Brooks Dyad for about 5 years continuously. With my flat feet, orthotics and plantar fasciitis, finding shoes has always been a nightmare. With the older models of the dyad, I never even needed to break them in, they fit great, were comfortable, and off I went. This model I could tell was different in how my foot sat in the show from the time I removed the inserts. My heel did not fit into the shoe with the orthotic as it did in the Dyad 8 (the shoe was a terrible sock eater). It went downhill from there. Within hours my feet hurt and the pressure points were incredibly uncomfortable. I went home and changed back into the Dyad 8 and my feet were happy again. I am dreading having to find another shoe to wear that is comfortable for my feet, and super sad that these changes were too much for me.

    great shoe even after breaking ankle and heel

    2017/03/24 | Bradenton Florida |

    I need these shoes just for every day living. Whether I'm working or not , these shoes gives me the support and stability I need to walk daily. I have screws in my foot, so it is very comfortable for me to wear and get back to daily tasks.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Blue shoe

    2017/03/19 | Spokane Valley, WA |

    I really like the shoe it might just be a little big or wide in the toe area only. But still works. I also ordered another pair of shoes from sol solutions. Been over 3 weeks and still not in. When I ordered these myself I got in 3-4 days. Seems odd that it would take that long to get from store . Wont order from store again.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Very Disappointed

    2017/03/15 | Lakewood, CA |

    Very disappointed in the DYAD 9's. I wear an orthotic in my shoes and was told this was the shoe to wear. I tried the 8's and it was true. I thought I had found a new best friend. Boy was I wrong. The 9's were so uncomfortable that I hated to eve put them on. After I did wear them by back hurt. You can tell the construction is different just from looking at the sole. I returned them and found the 8's on another website as they are not sold anymore by Brooks. Same thing happened to me with the Adrenalines. I wore them for over 10 years but the 15 and 16's are not the same as they used to be and therefore I can't wear them. Not sure where I will go now as these shoes are not cheap and hard to return once worn, plus I need a wide width. Brook's, why change something when it isn't broke???? Feeling very broken hearted...

    had dyad 8 fit great, dyad 9 not so good

    2017/03/13 | Arvada CO |

    The Dyad 9 is not working for me. I have special inserts that I can't wear in the dyad 9's. The shoe is also way too tight across the ball area causing my left foot a lot of pain. The dyad 8 fit just right - size 11 wide. do you have any more of these???

    Epic Fail

    2017/03/08 | Mobile, AL |

    Epic fail! I'm so disappointed. Dyad was my shoe for years. It was the first shoe I ever found that had a wide enough toe box for my wide feet. Then came Dyad 8 and all that went away. I had hope that with Dyad 9 they might have corrected their errors, but no it's worse. Not only is my supposedly 2E width shoe narrow in the toe box, it's so narrow in the mid foot that my arch actuall rests on the side of the shoe. Brooks please please pull out your old designs!

    Stiff and uncomfortable

    2017/03/04 | MN |

    The shoe is very stiff with little to no arch support. Just walking around my house, the shoe felt very clunky with a clunking noise to match every step. There is also stitching that rubbed against my toes. I bought these for work because I'm a nurse who's on her feet all day. One day of wearing them around the house was enough to know these would not be comfortable, and I returned them.

    Disappointed in this shoe

    2017/03/01 | Cary, NC |

    I have been wearing Brooks Dyads for almost a decade now and was thrilled when I first found them as I have very wide feet and narrow heels. These were the only sneakers I found that fit properly and comfortably. However, this DYAD is not the same as the others. The shoe is narrower and even a half size up doesn't accommodate the width of my foot. I have returned them and will have to look elsewhere for sneakers unless Brooks revamps them and makes a sneaker that is truly for wide feet. I would not recommend this shoe to any one with extra wide feet. Look around and see if you can find some Dyad 8s or 7s instead.
