Who should buy the Brooks Dyad Walker

The Brooks Dyad Walker aims to deliver a steady and sure-footed experience to its wearers. That said, Brooks has integrated innovative technologies and materials into its upper and sole unit to achieve the desired outcome. It is a solid choice if:

  • A shoe that could provide comfort whether used for exercise, walking, or casual purposes is what you prefer. 
  • A walking companion that has the ability to relieve pain due to neuropathy, plantar fasciitis, and other foot conditions is what you need. 
  • You are after a shoe that could accommodate custom orthotics for the conditions you have in your lower extremities.

Light and flexible outsole

The Brooks Dyad Walker uses blown rubber to line the bottom of its platform. It offers a softer, lighter and more flexible underfoot experience. It has also been certified for slip-resistance (ASTM F489-96). The pods and grooves throughout the unit are strategically placed to deliver traction and pliability in the right areas.

The midfoot section of the platform is designed to be wide to ensure steadiness throughout the walking gait cycle. It features two rubber pods called Dual Arch Pods which prevent the foot from excessive inward rolling. At the same time, this construction doesn’t interfere if the wearer’s foot has normal pronation.

Responsive midsole technology

The BioMoGo DNA compound serves as a midsole unit of the Dyad Walker. This technology has been taken from the brand’s running shoes to deliver a smooth and responsive heel-to-toe transition. The BioMoGo foam is based on Brooks’ resilient MoGo cushioning unit. The “Bio-” prefix implies that this material is also biodegradable and decomposes about 50 times faster than the regular EVA.

Blended into the foam is the DNA material. It is made of a non-Newtonian fluid which changes its density depending on the weight and speed of the wearer. The higher the impact, the firmer it becomes. On the contrary, the material remains softer and more responsive during quick movements.

The midfoot portion of the platform features an articulated pattern. It contributes to the pliability of the sole and provides unhindered foot bending throughout the walk.
