I'm very mixed on this shoe: on one hand they fit my foot, which is a hard thing to do! I have a short/wide foot with a narrow heel. Brooks has an amazing heel design- normally my heel tries (and usually succeeds!) to slip out of running shoes, but has stayed-put in every brooks shoe I've tried!! However, I also moderatly pronate, which is this shoe's downfall. No matter how my foot lands- inside/outside- it almost feels like the shoe 'forces' my foot/ankel to over pronate. Not extremely, it obviously wouldnt cause an injury, just a little more than is comfortable for me. I had high hopes- I live on the oregon coast and thought these would be perfect for sandy-beach running... but the search continues!

Disappointing. I love the original Pure Grit shoes. They seem to have stopped making those and came out with this Pure Grit 2 version. Unfortunately it's not new and improved. The Brooks logo across the top of the shoes makes my toes fall asleep - no matter how loose I leave the laces. It seems to make the toe box height shorter and tighter which pinches my toes enough to eventually affect the blood flow, even though it doesn't feel tight on my foot in that area. Really sad to see because the 1st Pure Grits were the 1st running shoe I've had in years that allowed me to run again with no knee pain. Please let me know if they decide to bring back the older version again - soon I hope! Zappos rocks as usual with their ease in returning things though so returns are never a problem with this wonderful company!
Felt a half size smaller than marked

I love the Pure Connect and Pure Connect 2 and was hoping this would be similar with a grippier outsole for running on grass. They were SO comfortable ... that cushy, light, slipper feel that I love in the Pure Connects, but they just didn't fit me. I tried the same size I took in Pure Connect, and it was too big. So I went down half a size, and that was better, but still my heel was slipping on my one foot. Ended up returning them, but if they fit you well, I am sure they are great.

The sole seems like it offers good traction. The back of heel rides too high and is uncomfortable. It might run a bit narrow. I am wearing them around the house, and they feel snug. The inside is not particularly soft. The colors are awesome. The shoe also looks sleeker in person than in the photos.
