If you are looking for a top design from Brooks, the Dyad 10 running shoes represent a great option. Made for some of the most pretentious runners, the shoes offer a lightweight profile which features the environmentally-friendly BioMoGo technology. With a breathable upper and one of the most thickly-padded collars even by Brooks’ standards, the shoes prove to be a comfortable option with their 10mm standard offset. With a comfortable sockliner, the shoes are a great solution when it comes to the ultimate comfort on long-running sessions.

The shoes are great if you are a neutral runner. I like the supportive feel which is combined with the mesh and synthetic upper materials. The perforations in the forefoot and midfoot, together with the mesh materials make this area highly breathable. The synthetic material of the heel is great when it comes to durability. I also like the overall comfort of the shoes. There is a bit too much padding on the collar but it feels great when you take tight turns. With plenty of support from the foam materials, the shoes feel great on the feet but you will start to feel the reduced flexibility when running long distances.

With a bit more width in the shoe, you get plenty of room if you want a relaxed feel. The shoes are not specifically made for race day, but they can be used every day for training purposes. At the same time, they can fit your own orthotics if needed. With a design which favors overpronators, they are recommended for the best experience if you run every day. This is due to the fact that they will not put too much pressure on your feet.

The Brooks Dyad 10 shoes represent one of the interesting choices which are above the average in performance and pricing. However, many Dyad fans feel the latest version of the shoes does not do justice to the series, especially in terms of looks. With better overall sustainability, the shoes can be a durable option, if you manage to get past their unappealing look.


The shoes have been upgraded overall but it seems like Brooks could have done more. Fans of the series welcome the added breathability and cushioning but they are unsure about the looks of the shoes.

The most underrated upgrade of the shoes comes with the outsole. While the materials are still the same, the added flexion grooves and midfoot support are worth the upgrade. This is especially true if you are looking to use the shoes a few times per week on different types of running surfaces.


With an outsole which is made to be nearly flat but similar to the previous version, the shoes are made to tackle the surfaces you encounter in the park, on the track or at the gym. The good news is that the grooves have been improved to allow for a better overall flexion. With large pods beneath the arch, you should rest assured that there is plenty of support when it's needed and where it's needed.


The midsole features a couple of the most interesting technologies from the manufacturer. Among them, the added Heel Crash Pad proves to be a good addition when it comes to attenuating shocks. But the BioMoGo which is now friendly to the environment is not bad either. This is why it is important to note that the cushioning is designed with for the entire length of the shoe with its 10mm offset.


Made from a durable mesh, the upper is designed so that it keeps moisture away from your feet. It also comes with thin overlays which are supposed to keep it in place better. While the performance of the upper is not bad, its design is often criticized by runners. But if its design is not a problem for you, there are good chances that you will get to like the shoe.

Size And Fit

The shoes are recommended for their true size. However, you should not expect too much room in the forefoot. At the same time, if you are planning to use your own orthotics, you should look for the options which require the least amount of space. But the good news is that the shoes are made for all types of feet and this is why you are able to choose different widths to suit your needs.
