  • 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.

Customer Reviews

Comments: I love the Dyad 7, it's a great shoe. Most of my running is in the Addiction, but I like to use the Dyad as an easy recovery run shoe. It has a thick, soft midsole, and a wide, straight base. It's very comfortable and forgiving, and not as heavy as you would think. Highly recommended.

Comments: I have about 350+ miles on my first ever pair of Brooks Dyads with no signs of breakdown yet and all i can say is...Excellent shoe! Best 'sock liner' insert i've ever seen. actually, this insert is better constructed than some otc orthotics. A bit of a heavy feeling shoe, nice for winter running tho, feet were never cold. A training shoe for sure, not a racer... well constructed inside and out, a great value for the price. If you have achy feet this is the shoe for you. I have mortons neuroma in both feet and need all the cushioning i can get, this shoe helps big time (although it is not the cure).
