As many reviewers said before, the Dyad 7's were much better. I have wide feet and thus why I go for the Dyad 4Es. The 8's seem to be more durable as they last longer than the 7's, but the tradeoff is that they used harder materials and thus lose out a bit on the comfort. They definitely seem more durable, but I don't mind buying more pairs of less long lasting shoes if that means they are more comfortable on my feet. Hopefully the Dyad 9's, when they come out, would be a happy medium.

These are a downgrade from the Dyad 7s. Hard as a rock ! I bought 3 pair of 7s as I usually go through shoes every 4-5 months. Huge Disappointment as I loved the Brooks Dyad 7s. The 7s felt like I was walking on clouds...these I felt were immediately harder and way less cushioning. The arch support I did feel was an upgrade and the shoes fit my wide (4e) feet very well. The style is also an upgrade from the 7s but I'll be sending mine back as I'm on my feet 10-12 hours a day. I will always give Zappos 5 stars on their customer service though - ordered on a Friday afternoon and received on Monday. They are always so so good about customer returns as well - Zappos is the only place I shop.

Very disappointed in the Dyad 8. The Dyad 7 was the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. Ever. I had two pair and wish now I'd bought more, as I can't find my size anywhere now that the 8 is out. Like the Dyad 7, I needed a full size and full width larger than my normal size. The similarity ends there. This shoe is lighter, with cheaper materials, and not as good looking as the 7. Most importantly, the cushioning is not as good, nor the general fit and feel of the shoe. No 'hug' around the mid-shoe, and too much air space across the top makes for a sloppy fit. When a particular shoe is is known for its cushioning, marketed for its cushioned ride and people buy it for that reason, it seems counterproductive to reduce the cushioning. As for the cheaper materials, it's the same old story, isn't it. These are going back. Going to check out some Mizunos, thanks to the remark made by another reviewer. According to Mizuno, their Wave Prophecy3, Wave Creation 15 and Wave Enigma 4 are the most similar to the Dyad 7 for neutral platform, heel/toe drop and cushioning. Just passing that on.

I'd also recommend: No idea. That's what I'm trying to find out now.

What happened to Brooks? I must have gone through at least 5 pairs of Dyad 7's with total comfort and no issues. I ordered these new Dyad 8's in 11 2E, as I had for Dyad 7's and could barely get them on my feet. I returned them for 11 4Es and found that the toe box was wide enough but the heel was so narrow that it literally caused bruises on my heels. I have given up on Brooks and have moved to Mizuno. I am very thankful for Zappos' excellent customer service.

I'd also recommend: Mizuno

I loved the Dyad 7...went through about 6 pairs of them. Hate the Dyad 8. The toe box is far too narrow. The outside 2 toes were scrunched up against the front of the shoe. Went a half size larger...still same problem. Those were EEEE! Mega fail Brooks!
