This is my 4th pair of Brooks sneakers. I alternate between them all for my runs, depending on the weather and terrain. I prefer minimalist sneakers and the PureDrift fall perfectly within that category. They are light, have enough support without creating bulk and adding unnecessary weight, and allow my foot to strike midsole automatically. I highly recommend these for those who want a light, comfortable minimalist running sneaker.

I love these shoes for crosstraining and speed workouts. I couldn't wear then for super long runs but they are great any other time! I use them for explosive training, plyometrics and pretty much anything! I wear mine barefoot and definitely sized down. I like my shoes a bit tight but I got a 9 in these and my other Brooks are 10. They are also very wide in the toe box which works for me but may not work for all.

Wow - so I am a super supinator. It is beyond difficult to find a great running shoe that supports. This is is. With just a tad cushioning leaning your feet in a slight pronating position this shoe feels amazing. Support and tight in the heel and wide toe base. Love!

I'm a nurse, and these are the best shoes I've ever owned! My feet never get tired in them, and they have enough support to get me through 13-hour shifts. I'm so excited that they came out with the pink color! I'm definitely ordering another pair.

These are by far the most comfortable and lightweight shoes that I have ever owned. I have wide feet and they have plenty of room. They are probably not good if you have narraow feet. There are no pressure spots or blisters. They are great shoes!

I always order the Brooks Pure series a half size up. I like my shoes a little loose and extra room in the toes. I use these to walk in primarily and have really enjoyed them. Love the colors too.

These fit about half a size smaller, but great shape around the front of the foot in general. Very cute shoe that I sadly had to return because of two reasons: they are not low cut enough around the ankles, and thus rub them, and I could never take them on trails, because they seem to not have a rubber sole beneath the sole pods: the same material as on the top is visible between the pods. This was not apparent from the photos when I looked at them. In all fairness they were not advertised for trail running, so they only lost a star because of the ankle cut.

Brooks recommends sizing down half a size in this shoe. I am typically a size 9, and my feet are a little on the wide side and flat. I wear mostly minimalist shoes, but I find I need some more cushioning for doing a lot of walking or running, which is why I got these shoes (which are still almost zero drop). Anyway, I ordered an 8.5 from Zappos, and my toes went all the way to the end of the shoe. The width was fine, but I just didn't feel like the shoes were quite long enough. I ordered a 9 to compare and I love the 9s. There is a nice wide toe box, but the shoes fit snugly around the midfoot and heel. They are perfect. I'm going to return the 8.5s. So, I recommend ordering your normal size, unless you have super narrow feet... then maybe sizing a half size down is a good idea.

It's a wonderful shoe! However, it didn't work for me, the shoe tends to curve at the midfoot which just made my ankle feel really awkward. For me running in this shoe caused me some pain.

These are very comfortable shoes and very cute shoes. I have been a Pure Connect fan and thought I would give these a try and am disappointed in the shoe overall. I have a very narrow foot and found the toe box to be too wide for my feet. They are light and comfortable but will definitely be sticking with my tried and true connects.

Nice looking shoe and lightweight like other Brooks I've had. The toe bed was too wide for my foot so I had to return them.

Toe box is really wide allowing for too much wiggle room and not enough stability for anything other than walking forward.

This shoe is very light and looks good. However, there is no support and the front looks like a ducks bill. Too wide for me. Needs to go back. I suppose you have a wide foot, they may work.

At first I loved these shoes. They are very light and comfortable. However, they have a very weird configuration and left my feet experiencing pain I have never felt before, especially across the top and side of my feet. I'm actually going to try to send them back. I simply cannot wear these shoes.

Brands I'd also recommend: I still like Brooks, just not this shoe.
