Description

  • With nothing but the open road ahead, it's easy to get lost in the sweet plush of every stride when you ride the PureFlow 3 from Brooks®!
  • Successor to the PureFlow 2, SKU# 8056774.
  • Part of the PureProject Collection from Brooks.
  • Brooks developed five unique features called the Ideal Technologies (Nav Band, Toe Flex, BioMOGO DNA, rounded heel, and Anatomical Last) that are featured in every PureProject shoe. Combined, these technologies are designed to promote an efficient, natural stride by encouraging a more forward foot strike, which places the runner over their center of gravity, helps align the body and reduces harmful stress.
  • Built for the neutral to mild overpronator looking to step into the minimalist category without losing the comfort of reliable cushioning and support.
  • Breathable mesh and sueded synthetic upper materials.
  • An updated, wider elastic Nav Band is locked into the lateral strike pod to ensure a secure, glove-like fit.
  • Lightly padded tongue and collar for a great next-to-skin feel.
  • Soft, breathable fabric lining offers a great in-shoe feel.
  • Molded foam insole for light underfoot comfort.
  • Full-length BioMoGo DNA is a blend of earth-friendly BioMoGo and responsive Brooks DNA, and has a gender-friendly cushioning design, making for a dynamic ride.
  • Differential: 4 mm
  • Toe Flex features a split-toe design that heightens forefoot flexibility and promotes the big toe to engage the runner's natural stability and power during push-off.
  • The heel is slimmed down and rounded to encourage contact points to shift forward, aligning the joints and creating optimal energy return.
  • Blown rubber pods provide reliable grip and traction.
  • Omega Flex Grooves allow for more natural forefoot movement and fluidity.
  • Built on an anatomical last for a better fit and feel.
  • Imported.
  • Measurements:
    • Heel Height: 1 in
    • Weight: 10 oz
    • Platform Height: 34 in

The new Pureflow 3 feels very similar to my Pureflow 2s! They are NOT narrower across the forefoot. They are true to size and width compared to the 2s! Whoever says these shoes are narrower has it wrong! If you are a Pureflow 2 user, you will like the 3s. I've been running for 30 years and I have seen many ruinous updates to other shoes. Brooks did not ruin the shoe with this update. The burrito tongue now crosses over from medial to lateral (inside to outside). This is an insignificant change. Your foot won't tell the difference. All the changes I see (and feel) are minor tweaks. I commend Brooks on a nice update to a great shoe. By the way, my highest score is 4 since a perfect shoe does not exist.

I'd also recommend: Saucony Kinvara-4, Asics Gel-Lyte 33-2

Just returned from 2 months in Europe, walking on all kinds of surfaces with these shoes, and they are just great. Lots of cushioning, attractive and understated. Perfect for traveling in comfort, but probably not constructed in a way to withstand a steady pounding of a runner's routine. I'm buying another pair today to hold in reserve if they are discontinued at some point.

I'd also recommend: Assics

I have been searching for shoes with minimal heel drop to promote natural running (mid-foot or fore-foot strike), decent room in the toe box, and some (but not too much) cushioning to enable long (ultramarathon) distance running. This shoe is it. I tried many different models from Altra Zero Drop, as well as the Saucony Kinvara 4, Newtons, and even Hoka One One. This shoe just feels right. It is comfortable but not over padded and has a 4 mm heal drop, which is about right for natural running. I am happy with it and will be running Boston in it next week. It has been great for several runs over 20 miles and I intend to run a 100 mile ultra in it later this summer. Do not go for the over padded Hokas or Altra Olympus or Torin. This shoe does what it is supposed to do: you quickly feel like it is not even there.

I ran in PureFlow 2 and these are very similar. I really like how the tongue is tied in on the side of the shoe. The only small issue is that it feels like my big toe rides where the insole meets the shoe.

This shoe is too narrow at toe box and front of foot. It is also built small, order a half size up from normal. Cushioning seems good, I just wish they offered a wider width.
