This is a great shoe for individuals trying to get healthier, lose weight, or just start running again. The biggest advantage to this shoe is that it takes an orthotic really well.
- The Brooks Dyad gets its tenth update for runners looking for a shoe that gives comfort and support simultaneously. The shoe boasts of an upgraded structure that features a roomier foot environment and a lighter weight compared to its predecessor.
- This Brooks running shoe has a new upper construction that offers the wearer a more accommodating and more adaptive fit while retaining the breathability level it has delivered in the previous version.
- The trusted BioMoGo DNA is still present in the Dyad 10 ensuring that runners get the sufficient underfoot cushioning that results in a dynamic and smooth stride. On the other hand, the outsole now displays a modernized layout using the same materials as the earlier Dyad iterations. The sole unit aims to bring a more stable ride as pliability is reduced to just the right amount.
The Brooks Dyad 10 is made based on a standard running shoe length; thus, the shoe runs true to size. In comparison with the Dyad 9, this shoe presents more room in the toe box and the forefoot area, enabling a secure yet comfortable fit. Runners of various foot volumes will enjoy the Dyad 10, as it is available in medium, wide, and extra wide for both the men’s and women’s versions.
The outsole of the Dyad 10 is divided into two major components. First is the forefoot area that uses traditional blown rubber, a material that is known for providing cushioning and protection simultaneously, thanks to its unique soft-and-durable structure. The blown rubber equips the forefoot with a level of responsiveness and flexibility that allows for an energized, well-managed toe-off.
The second noteworthy part of the outsole is the rearfoot that is reinforced with HPR Plus, a durable rubber with a high abrasion-resistance quality. This element gives the shoe an adequate amount of grip during landing, while preventing it from excessive wear.
In the midfoot area is a tandem of stability units called the Dual-Stability Arch Pods. These components furnish the Dyad 10’s broad platform with stability and bilateral support. The design and position of these arch pods are intended to promote neutral pronation, as well as a natural and efficient gait cycle.
Also present in the outsole is one of two sets of flex indentations of the Dyad 10, the Omni Grooves. These installations lend to the shoe a flexible quality while also adding to its overall appearance.
The Brooks Dyad 10, same as the Brooks Ravenna 10, features the proprietary DNA cushioning, a gel-based foam that adapts to the shape of the foot, thus ensuring maximum responsiveness and a more effective underfoot cushioning compared to regular foam. The DNA variant of this shoe is BioMoGo, which means it is made from fewer source materials, making it environment-friendly.
The shoe’s insole comes in two components: First is the S-257 Cushsole, which is made up of a midsole compound to provide additional cushioning and flexibility to the underfoot. Second is the Ultimate Sockliner, a removable sock liner that has a moisture-wicking capability.
To complement the outsole’s Omni Grooves, the midsole has Omega Grooves, which also help and enhance shoe flexibility and encourage the foot’s natural movement.
The Dyad 10’s Heel Segmented Crash Pad works by absorbing the impact that comes with footstrike and endorsing a smooth heel-to-toe transition. This feature augments the shoe’s flexible and responsive qualities.
On the upper of the Brooks Dyad 10 is an engineered mesh material that warrants a more breathable, more lightweight, and more durable shoe compared to those that use ordinary mesh. With such enhanced properties, the upper is guaranteed to be more comfortable while offering maximum coverage and functionality.
Sealing the engineered mesh in place is the S-257 Cushsole lasting method, which involves the use of a full-length, advanced-level foam material to give the shoe additional cushioning in strategic locations. This process makes for more in-shoe room, especially in the forefoot and toe areas.
Instead of traditional synthetic overlays, the Dyad 10 employs a midfoot saddle located beneath the mesh upper. It keeps the foot in place while maintaining a snug and comfortable fit.
