To athletes, the New Brooks Anthem 2 shoes are available now. The shoes are an instant update to the first anthem and look as new as many fans expect from Brooks. Of note, the first release of Anthem was a good release. Compared with other neutral clothing, it lacked a bit of cushioning. In 2017, Brooks introduced in the Levitate a smooth, bouncy foam called DNA AMP. It is a foam-based polyurethane embedded in a skin TPU that allows only one way for the foam to spread (vertically).
