Levitate is the result of years of research, development and testing to create a shoe with ultimate energy return. Levitate gives runners the motivation to run and run. It offers the ultimate springy ride, made possible by the unrivalled energy return of our new DNA Amp midsole technology. DNA AMP was created, in partnership with chemistry giant BASF, to be the perfect blend of our legendary cushion and incredible energy return. Using a polyurethane foam, wrapped in a TPU skin, it captures the energy created by each foot strike and gives it no place to go but up - straight back to you. Here's why you will experience Infinite Energy when you run in Brooks Levitate. ENERGIZED CUSHIONING With the most energy return of leading performance running shoes, Levitate's DNA AMP midsole technology gives energy nowhere to go but up, straight back to you. QUICK TRANSITIONS A flexible, arrow-point pattern on the outsole helps you move from heel to toe quickly, without losing energy. INTUITIVE FIT The Fit Knit upper comfortably accommodates your foot as it moves and expands.
