Dicks keeps slashing the price on thisshoe because no one wants it. If you're not in the know this shoe has been widely panned by runners. It's hardly spoken of anymore on r/RunningShoeGeeks because it was bombed so bad when it came out last year.

The Hyperion Max is a firm shoe with your basic generic nitrogen infused EVA midsole. There's no plate and no super foam. Despite this the brilliant people at Brooks, which is owned by billionaire Warren Buffett, decided to price this Sketchers knockoff at $170. Quite hilarious.

Brooks doesn't seem to have a good grasp at what's going on in run specialty. They're putting out shoes that use technology from 2014 and slapping 2023 price tags on them. In today's market $170 will buy you a Saucony Endorphin Speed 3, a high performance daily trainer that uses licensed Pebax foam from Arkema, a French based chemicals conglomerate. The company's Pebax is a type of TPE based foam known as PEBA. Not only does Saucony use Pebax but Nike too. The shoes that always take the podium at the world's major Marathons are always TPE based.

While Nike, Adidas, and Saucony are out here slaying with TPE based foams Brooks continues to live in the Stone age.

At this price point you should keep your eye out for a New Balance Fuelcell Rebel v3. They discount down to $70 but can be had for $50 when coupons are applicable at Joe's New Balance but the inventory has dried up. Deals on select color ways should materialize by end of year as part of the holiday shopping season. The Rebel v3 uses a quasi super foam. While it might not be on par with TPE it's a noticable step up from EVA. The Rebel is light on foot, well ventilated, and the foam is squishy and springy.
FWIW, I bought these two weeks ago when it was first advertised here, and I saw this comment by brucknerfan after the fact and got nervous. However, after three
