Brooks PureGrit® 2

These feel fantastic and the sizing is very similar to the Pureflow 2. The grip is magic offroad except for being very slippery on ice (details below). The flexibility of these make it feel like you are running in arch-supporting slippers. A warning...I was looking through reviews on the Brooks website before getting these and someone called out that these were slippery on ice due to the harder rubber compound on the bottom. I went for my first run in these this morning and despite intentionally avoiding the ice I still hit a patch and ended up on my bum! I ran on snow, grass, and clear road the rest of the way and I was fine. I don't think that this is a negative about the shoe, however, because at some point they have to make a trade off of rubber softness vs off-road hardness. Avoid ice if at all possible.

I'd also recommend: Merrel, Asics

I tried the Pure-drift for something new. While I liked the comfort and feel of this minimalist shoe I have found it has affected my running comfort. I am 52, 6'1", 198 lbs and I guess I need a bit of cushioning for these old bones. I run about 15 miles per week and have had more calf, Achilles tendon and other ankle issues with this shoe than any other in my last 10 years of running. This will become my comfort walk about shoe and I am looking for something else to run in as soon as my latest ankle issue heals.

Ok I already have 2 pairs of the original Puregrit which are excellent except for the lack of grip on anything apart from hard packed dirt, so I expected Brooks to address this problem and they have, however the new outsole is far from perfect, do not expect great results on mud, rocks or tree roots, the tread is so low profile. As for the much vaunted asymetric upper, in my opinion does not add much to the shoe, so still a good shoe just not much of an improvement sadly.

I'd also recommend: Saucony Xodus, Nike Flextrail

I loved my Pure Grit 1s. I still have 'em! I thought I would try the 2s. I wish I hadn't. I bought them when they first came out. I put about 10 miles in them and haven't worn them since; they hurt my knees. I wish I could return them.
