Very happy with the comfort of this shoe. Purchased because of other recommendations that they had more padding.

I have low arches and wide feet and this shoe fits my foot perfectly. I tried a Nike shoe and it felt like my feet were stretching out the sides but that is not the case with the Dyad. Overall, these are a very comfortable shoe and you will not be dissapointed.

Great fit. Now if I could only find a "Shoe" that fits this well, I would be in good shape.

Picked these up to go with my custom orthotics for running. Had Brooks Beasts before but found you're not supposed to mix custom orthotics with motion control shoes. The Dyads were highly rated for use with orthotics. I've had the chance to put some miles on them and they have been perfect! Comfortable for runs and walks alike. If you're looking for a shoe to use with custom orthotics, these are the ticket. As an added bonus, they are less expensive than other shoes that pair with orthotics but you make no sacrifices since it is Brooks brand.

Godsend...thank you Brooks and Zappos. I walk 3 miles per day on very flat feet, to stay in golf shape and heal old football injuries. Over the years ankle and knee pain has gotten worse. Dyad 7's are the best shoe I have ever worn. First shoe in a decade that I wear out on the tread before busting out of the sides. One recommendation to anyone reading, get a size bigger than you are used to and go wider also...worked great for me. And final note...thank you Zappos. I bought a pair of 13 normal width. They still felt tight so I asked to swap for wide. Zappos overnighted a second pair and paid all the shipping to send back the originals...wow...very happy customer.

Zappos did a great job filling the order and delivery to my home! After I ordered, my son informed me that he needed the shoes for the weekend. I called customer service and they expedited the shipment to ensure that I got the shoes on time. Great customer service...felt listened to and they quickly solved my issue. Thanks!

I have been running in Dyads for 10 years. I have tried other brands but always come back to Dyad. I weigh 200 lbs and I believe other shoes are not built for someone of my weight. I am a neutral runner. Nothing has worked for me like Dyad.

I bought the shoes for work. I work on a cement floor 70 hours a week. Inexpensive Nikes were not working. Once I started wearing the Brooks, my knees and back started feeling much better. Excellent shoe!

I am absolutely thrilled with these shoes. Maybe the most comfortable pair of shoes I've worn in forever. I'm 6'4" and weigh 250 lbs and usually the first thing I do after I put a new pair of shoes on is head to the store to purchase a set of Dr. Scholl's. But not with this pair. Great sizing, great feel. Highly recommended.

Although Brooks is well-know for running shoes, I wear these shoes every day because I use orthotics and the neutral platform in the Dyad7 is perfect for me.

I love these Brooks shoes. They are so comfortable. The 2 pods on the midfoot sole area are great support and a custom orthotic works very well. But be sure to buy the next size up from what you measure because like all athletic shoes these days they do run a bit short.

Being a person who has very large and oddly sized feet, these are the most comfortable shoes I've ever tried on! I've already bought several pairs, and will continue to hunt these down each time I wear out another.

I know now why Brooks cost more. When I put them on I was amazed on how they fit and felt on my feet. I have different brands of shoes and the Brooks shoes are by far the best feeling shoes that I have ever worn. I was also happy with the price and hope to find another pair in the future.

I use these with custom running orthotics made by BioCorrect - they prescribed these shoes for me, because they're so neutral (I replace the stock insoles with the custom orthotics). this is my Fifth pair of Dyads - I get a new pair every year like clockwork (I know, six months is better, but a year works for me). Love 'em!

Great pair of shoes for we big guys (6'3"-225). Used to run but now just walk, but always have used Brooks. Would recommend you try them, you will be amazed how comfortable they are!

I'm a large runner, 6'5, 265 lbs. I'm now running, approximately 25 miles a week in my third pair of Dyads. The Dyad is by far the best running shoe I've ever owned. They wear well on the street or on the treadmill. Great support and very durable. I wish Brooks would bring back more color options for the shoe.

Best pair of shoes I've ever owned, hands down! I have a very wide foot in size 15, and have a very hard time finding any boot or shoe wide enough to be comfortable. I bought these a little over a year ago for a week long trip to Disneyland. Received them the day before my flight (fast shipping by the way) put them on the next morning and haven't missed a day of wearing them since. I work 70+ hours a week all on my feet, and these shoes still feel great, with not so much as a single broken stitch or piece of separating sole, and I am brutal on shoes! Would happily buy these shoes time and time again!

This is my 3rd pair after recommendation from running store. Only shoe that provides neutral support for wide width. Would prefer more colors and a little bit lighter. Wears well and provides cushion for bigger runners.

I wear a 10D consistently, which is roomy enough for thick socks. I sent these back three times, ending up with an 11EE, which is a pretty dramatic increase in both length and width. The left shoe kept cutting off my big toe. They feel great on my supinating feet which hurt all the time. Lightweight, flexible, cushiony. Brooks makes a quality shoe, and quality is getting harder and harder to find these days. I just wish their running shoes weren't so flashy. These are the most conservative style Brooks makes for a neutral-platform shoe, and it's still too flash for me, ugh! Sincere thanks to Zappos for their incredible return policy and customer service - it's the reason I never buy shoes anywhere else.

Seriously I can't wait for Brooks (New Balance) to put Nike out of business. Nike has the style and brand but your feet will tell you that these blow anything else away. Second pair of Brooks based on someone doing a lot of research and sharing that Brooks always came out on top. Wow, wish these were around 20 years ago.

These Brooks are a very nice shoe and very comfortable. I originally ordered a 11 1/2, which is what I wear but the length was about a half size off. I exchanged for a 12 and the size was right. I would say that they run a half size off. The inserts provide great arch support and the width was true to size. No complaints about these Brooks as for the comfort and look but do wish the price was lower. This was my first pair of Brooks and I was impressed with the quality of the shoe. I am not a runner other than on a treadmill and I prefer to ride a bike for exercise.

I've been running in the Brooks Dyad for about 3yrs now. On the recommendation of my Dr. who put me in orthotics I trusted his judgment and have been very happy ever since. Great fit and stability for heavy runners along with great styling too. Hard to find all this and durability in a shoe. Brooks hit a home run on this one.

The best. I need support and like the feel. I have been running in this shoe for at least 4 years. It's cushiony and feels so comfortable. The uppers are durable and they are my favorite running shoe. Give 'em a try.

I purchased Brooks Dyad 7 for my spouse as a gift. He loves them so much he immediately ordered a second pair so he'd have one pair for workouts and another for work where he's on his feet 8 hours each day. He has worn Brooks before but these are his favorite to date. He stated he's never worn a more comfortable shoe! As always...excellent and expedient customer service from Zappos. The best online shoe store ever!
