The Dyad 4 defies the dogma that directs all low-arch foot types to motion control shoes. With a neutral, supportive base, crave-worthy cushioning, and a thermo-regulating sockliner, it’s a cool, comfortable choice for the biomechanically efficient flat footer.
The Dyad is designed for big runners with efficient gaits. The wearer’s forefoot and heel sit high atop a full complement of cushioning technologies: a new best-in-the-biz sockliner, a foam pad, and a high-quality foam midsole containing fluid-filled pods. Only a lateral heel crash pad is missing. The upper’s shape falls between straight and slightly curved and the width is slightly wider than average. Some wear-testers reported that the arch felt a bit too far forward, but it was not high enough to be disturbing.
