BioMoGo™, Midsole : Fully biodegradable midsole foam for footwear. Once a pair of Brooks shoes with BioMoGo has reached an enclosed landfill, it will begin to biodegrade. In roughly 20 years the midsoles will be completely converted by common soil microbes into useful humus and nutrients. That’s about 50 times faster than a standard midsole degradation : MoGo : Brooks claims, MoGo offers 40 percent more cushioning and gives a runner 22 percent more return of energy - the "spring" in one's step - than Brooks' former midsole. Substance 257. MoGo not only represents a giant leap forward in midsole material performance for Brooks, it also entails an evolved method of production. Compression Molded Preform (CMP) is an efficient, precise production process in which, rather than being cut out of large sheets of material in the traditional method, midsoles are cast in individual molds, resulting in 50% less waste. The CMP process also increases consistency by an incredible 200%. Less variability between midsoles ensures that runners can count on enjoying the same feel pair after pair.

Cush Pod Configuration : Midsole/Outsole a configurations system in the mid/out sole to enables the shoe to bend and flex. For optimizing foot position for an efficient heel to toe-off.

DNA™, Rearfoot n Forefoot : Provides a customized ride for runners of all sizes and speeds, dispersing impact and providing ideal comfort and protection as the pace changes.

Element™ Lining : Place along the underside of the shoe's upper to aid in moisture transfer and comfort.

Element™ Mesh : A microfiber construction that provides strong protection against the elements in a light and quiet fabric. Element™ maintains full breathability and durable comfort.

HPR™ Green : High Performance Rubber Green : Primarily located in the forefoot and is a durable compound made with dispersed silica resulting in increased traction and skid-resistance.

Pivot System : A 4 points of ground contact in both the rearfoot and forefoot stabilizing system acting as a full-suspension to help keep the foot neutral on uneven terrain

Profile Sockliner : Placed underfoot and is made of BioMoGo for cushioning and forms a contoured support sensation.

Strobel Last : The upper is attached to a thin material that is patterned on the shape or silhouette of the midsole. Traditional strobel lasts use a thin cloth material, while newer variations use a thin sheet of EVA for a more cushioned feel.
