The DNA AMP is Brooks’ energy return cushioning, made of a polyurethane foam. Its main characteristic is to expand under the pressure as well as returning the energy directly back to you while you are running; with each step you make you experience a super springy ride. In this latest version, Brooks kept the same level of cushioning but decreased the weight of their DNA AMP foam by reducing its density. The weight of Levitate 4 has been reduced by 20% to deliver you a lightweight, energized feel on your feet when you run.
The new sleek upper is the engineered mesh made from the super soft flat knit, designed to offer you more breathability and security. The Mono Sock Construction of the upper is fitted next to your foot to hold your foot in comfort, delivering you the ‘sock like feel’. The heel collar has an improved fit and again designed from a very soft, flexible material to protect your foot against any Achilles irritation.
The improved arrow pointed flex groves on the outersole are now closer to each other on the edges to deliver you a quicker heel to toe transition and enhance the durability.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE FOR RUNNING SHOES
Your running shoe size will generally be 1 to 1.5 sizes bigger than your regular (‘dress’) shoe size. Bear in mind also that one foot can be slightly bigger than the other.
First, kick your foot back into the heel of each shoe before checking how much space is left at the front. When standing in each shoe with your full weight on the foot, it’s best to have between half and a full thumb's width between the end of the longest toe and the end of the shoe.
When standing in the shoe, it’s best to have a little wiggle room for the toes, but the back of heel should still feel nicely secure.
Sprint spikes are best when a close fit. Distance spikes best when up to a half a thumb's width between the end of the longest toe and the end of the shoe.
