Brooks DNA provides custom cushioning for runners of all types and sizes. Engineered from what's called a non-Newtonian liquid, this midsole technology responds to the amount of force placed on the foot and disperses the pressure, providing just the right amount of resiliency. Simply put, you can expect soft comfort when you want it, firm support when you need it.
BioMoGo is the world's first-ever biodegradable midsole for running shoes. It is a non-toxic, natural additive to the MoGo compound that encourages anaerobic microbes to munch away once it hits an active enclosed landfill. Traditional Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) midsoles can last up to 1,000 years in a landfill. BioMoGo’s microbial munch rate is 50 times faster, biodegrading nutrients into reusable byproducts. Over the course of, say, 20 to 25 years or so, Brooks alone can save 29.9 million pounds of landfill waste. For you pigskin fans out there, that equals 1,277 football fields covered one shoe deep!
Shank-like thermoplastic device provides torsional rigidity to midfoot, enhancing support while allowing the heel and forefoot to act independently.
Caterpillar Crash Pad
This segmented crash pad customizes the individual's lay down with just the right amount of cushion and stabilization, giving the runner a smooth heel to toe transition.
A higher durability, abrasion-resistant rubber outsole compound that wears longer.
The next generation of the Glycerin has arrived. An update to a neutral shoe hailed as "Editor's Choice" by Runner's World in Spring 2010, the new Glycerin includes a thicker, softer midsole that provides the right level of support you need. How can a shoe be so smart? Because it contains Brooks DNA, custom cushioning created from non-Newtonian liquid. Simply put, you can expect soft comfort when you want it, firm support when you need it. This technology is now carried throughout the entire length of the midsole. Step into a shoe that feels just right.
