INTRODUCTION

The Dyad 7 is a moderate feature, moderate neutral shoe designed for daily training and high mileage.

CIUSHIONING

  • Brooks DNA cushioning gel is a highly viscous liquid that changes to become more or less firm in response to each individual's weight, pace, biomechanics, and running environment.
  • Forefoot Hydroflow is located where the metatarsal head region of the foot rests in the shoe. Forefoot Hydroflow is designed to attenuate shock and dampen forces.

MIDSOLE

  • BioMoGo is Brook's premium midsole material. BioMoGo is designed to offer resilient cushioning and extends the full length of the midsole. BioMoGo is also environmentally friendly, as it will biodegrade 50 times faster in a landfill compared to traditional foam midsoles.
  • Cush Pod Configuration is a midsole/outsole design pattern intended to set the foot up for an efficient, balanced position from heel to toe. The focus of this design is on maximum cushioning and flexibility.
  • Omega Flex Grooves enhance midsole flexibility without compromising cushioning.

UPPER

  • Element Mesh is a moisture-managing, breathable mesh that covers large expanses of the upper.
  • Synthetic Overlays are strategically located with the purpose of providing a secure fit.
  • Element Linings lie along the underside of the upper to aid in moisture transfer and comfort.
  • Internal Support Saddle is located in the midfoot with the purpose of providing a more secure midfoot fit.
  • Ultimate Sockliner is a well cushioned, moisture wicking insole.
  • Cushole S-257 Last utilizes a full length layer of advanced foam to provide cushioning and flexibility.

OUTSOLE

  • HPR Plus is a form of high abrasion-resistant rubber and is located in the heel.
  • Blown Rubber is located in the forefoot to provide responsiveness and flexibilty.
  • Dual Stability Arch Pod is positioned at the bottom of the midfoot and offers additional stability at the arch.
  • Cush Pod Configuration is a midsole/outsole design pattern intended to set the foot up for an efficient, balanced position from heel to toe. The focus of this design is on maximum cushioning and flexibility.

Comments: I have only been running for 6 weeks.  All of that has been done using the Couch to 5K program, indoors, on a treadmill in some black and pink Puma crosstrainers that I happen to have.  I got these shoes yesterday, ran for a total of 20 minutes (no stopping) at 3.8 mph with a .5 grade.  These shoes were very comfortable, they felt light and springy.  I had no pain last night in my legs, knees or feet nor this morning.  I am glad these are my first pair of real running shoes.  I love them!
