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.

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!

I have owned 7 pairs of the Dyads. I came from New Balance, I tried Asics, Saucony, and Nike (gross!). The Dyads are the most comfortable shoes for me to run in. I have not always loved the colors that they had at the time but I still bought them for the comfort. I am 170lb and run a marathon in 3:45. I wear these shoes to the gym to run on the treadmill, and to work out in, as well as running on the street. I think I have a bit of a flat foot which is perhaps why these shoes feel so good to me.

Got wide feet? These shoes are for you! Spend hours at Bob's clothing or the Nike store at the mall, looking at awesome shoes that are all uncomfortable or poorly constructed in third-world countries using cheap materials? Try these Brooks. They're pretty comfortable, and they look ok. Added bonus, they have a "running responsibly" corporate ethics policy. Which is pretty rare in the shoe business.

I recently was prescribed compression socks. The ones I use are thick. I also have flat, wide feet, carry a lot of weight but have neutral pronation. I ordered the Dyad 7 one size larger than my usual size. Extremely comfortable right out of the box. Well padded, thick stiff soles. Very flexible lacing patterns-even for my swollen ankles. Unlike the "Beast" or other mega support shoes, these don't assume you walk on the outside edge of your foot. Very hard platform to find. Good toe box room and flex. I actually like the black as I no longer wear "dress shoes", with some black laces, they are fairly unobtrusive.

These are great shoes! I am not a runner but walk a lot and need shoes that do not kill my feet by the end od the day/walk. These shoes are supportive, stylish, have really good cushion, nice and wide and look good on. I highly recommend these shoes.

I was a little nervous making this purchase, as these are my first Brooks shoes. No worries though, as they are extremely comfortable and well-worth the cost. Also, I have an old knee injury, and a coworker noticed that I have not limped as much since I bought them. I followed some customer recommendations and ordered a half-size larger, which is a perfect fit. Definitely recommended!

I have arthritis in both my feet, born flat footed and had 4 surgeries. This is the most comfortable shoe I have worn in many years. I never thought I would pay this much for a shoe, but for the comfort and fit I would now pay that and more. Thank you Brooks and thank you Zappos for excellent service.

I am a senior citizen, and never have I had any company that is better to work with than Zappos. I have a very wide foot and this shoe is the best shoe I have ever worn. Again I give it the highest possible rating. It is all the representative said it would be and more. I highly recommend it. Have received numerous compliments on the appearance. Totally satisfied with the shoe and most of all with Zappos. Thanks for the great service.

Like waking on pillows. I have some very difficult feet to make comfortable on long walks or standing for many hours. These are terrific. Light and a good cushion. If I write a review, it's really good. I rarely speak up in this forum. So my thumbs up counts.
