Optimum traction and durability

A durable rubber is utilized in the outsole area of the Brooks PureCadence 7. This purpose of this material is to provide additional traction and durability. It aims to protect the platform against wear and tear.

Integrated into the shoe is the Dual Toe Flex. The outsole and midsole materials use a toe spit to allow the big toe to function more independently. It also aims to encourage the runner's natural balance during the toe-off phase.

Lying in the outsole area is the Omega Flex Grooves. This technology provides added flexibility to the platform without compromising the shoe's cushioning system. As a result, the foot lifts off the ground naturally with each stride.

Adaptive midsole fit with BioMoGo

The DNA cushioning technology and BioMoGo midsole are fused to come up with the BioMoGo DNA foam material. This midsole technology is also featured in the Adrenaline GTS 19, a popular Brooks running shoe.  The premier BioMoGo technology delivers a more responsive cushioning that is sure to suit the needs of every runner. This system is essential in following and adapting to the shape and motion of the foot for additional comfort.

Around the shoe lies the lightweight Guide Rails. These sections of the platform support and guide the foot in the heel-to-toe transition. It also prevents the foot from irregular pronation, especially when standing or running.

A natural forefoot and midfoot strike are encouraged by the Rounded Heel. It hugs the foot and accommodates a smoother foot landing.

A fresh and dry upper coverage

The 3D Fit Print Upper is integrated into the Brooks PureCadence 7. Along with the breathable fabrics, these materials provide a fresher, more relaxed and drier foot environment. It is also flexible and seamless. As a result, possible skin irritations are prevented.

Plush comfort around the ankle, the lower portion of the leg and the heel is offered by the Comfort Collar. The purpose of this material is to stabilize and keep the foot in place. It prevents possible shoe removal as well.

Glove-like feel is delivered by the anatomical last along with an internal cleatie. It mimics the natural shape of the foot, allowing the foot to work as a single unit.

The Brooks PureCadence 7 utilizes the Woven Air upper. This component of the shoe offers a light and breathable wrap as well as an adaptive and snug fit.
