The new Brooks Levitate is a product of seven years of research on its new DNA AMP midsole technology. Brooks Levitate with DNA AMP is the shoe engineered to provide the most energy return.
According to Carson Caprara, director of global product line management, Brooks Running, “We’re pushing the limits of energy return with the new Brooks Levitate that has been engineered from the ground up to provide runners with an infinitely energetic experience. The Brooks Levitate features our revolutionary new DNA AMP midsole technology that releases energy straight back to the runner, making the experience so fun they might feel like running forever.”
The Brooks Levitate may look simple and unattractive at first glance. It doesn’t have strong and bold colors like other shoes. Its midsole looks a bit dull with it’s smooth metallic finish on the sides. But the Brooks Levitate has more than meets the eye.
First, the Brooks Levitate is the first running shoe to feature the company’s exclusive DNA AMP midsole. Created in partnership with BASF, DNA AMP is a brand new polyurethane (PU)-based cushioning system strategically engineered to provide unparalleled energy return. The foundation of DNA AMP is a PU foam that naturally expands, returning energy as force is applied. To deliver an amplified experience, Brooks encased the foam in a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) skin that resists horizontal expansion to deliver energy directly back to the runner. The result is an engineered compound that provides exceptional energy return as well as an eye-catching chrome-like finish that feels as great underfoot as it looks.
Second, for a shoe that looks big and thick, the Brooks Levitate is surprisingly flexible. Thanks to the outsole design that looks like an arrow point pattern. It helps you move from heel to toe quickly, without losing energy.
Lastly, the upper material uses simple colors and patterns but it is made of 3D Fit Print and FitKnit to comfortably accommodate your foot as it moves and expands. Brooks Fit Knit utilizes a circular knit process to create a precisely engineered upper that provides breathability where desired and structure where needed. It feels a bit tight when I first tried it on, but after a run, the shoe fits perfectly well after the upper material expands to make a snug fit.
The Brooks Levitate with DNA AMP is now available and is priced at PHP 6,995.00 in one color for women and men. Additional details about the shoe can be found HERE.
