I've been running in my second pair of Pureflow 3s for way too long. After reading reviews for a half dozen shoes, I decided to take a gamble with the Pureflow 6, despite the mixed reception and the lousy reviews for the Pureflow 5. The 6s are great. They feel SO similar to my Pureflow 3s. I have a wide toebox and a narrow heel - these shoes feel made for my feet. This is the first pair of running shoes that I haven't had to butterfly lace in order to avoid heel slippage! These shoes are also true to size; I wear a 9 in almost all running shoes (8.5 in casual shoes), and the 9s are perfect. My 5 mile city run today was glorious. Right out of the box the Pureflows went on comfortably, and felt cushy yet light. By comparison, the Saucony Kinvara 7s that I also ordered required that I loosen the laces up entirely in order to even get my foot in. They were super restrictive and fit sharply (and painfully) around the top. The Pureflow 6 only loses points on style - the bluebird colors are gorgeous but the fat, boat-like white sole is a bit dorky/geezery. Oh well. I rely on user reviews, so I hope this is helpful!

I was looking for something comparable to the fit of Pure Connect. This is not it for me. The arch support starts too far back for my foot, feels like a rock in my shoe. The overall fit was good, roomy toe box, miss the Pure Connect, I loved that shoe. Will be returning these

Finally a return to one of the features that made the original Pureflows so great - return of the wide toebox. My wife and I have been running in the Brooks Pure's since they came out 6 yrs ago. I was unhappy with the changes since the 3. The 4s were OK, but were starting to get narrow and the 5s are very narrow. Now if they'd bring back the burrito tongue it would be perfect again.

I have always bought my shoes in the Brooks Pure series.. these are a dream compared to the PureFlow 5 - SO much more room in toe box, I feel like they weren't crushing my toes. The support is a dream and the look is great. I go back and forth between the PureFlow and PureGrit and I think these take the cake, almost want to buy a bunch of them before they change the shoe again. This is the way a shoe is supposed to fit. I was so hesitant to get the 6's because of how much I hated the 5's but I would HIGHLY recommend you take the plunge - especially if you love a 4mm drop like me! I have been training in 4mm shoes for the past 5 years and absolutely love these shoes. Also a huge thing I noticed compared to other PureFlows is there are no seams on the outsides of the shoe/toe area, which is wear my shoes always show wear and tear first. Seems to be one solid piece of fabric if that makes since. These feel incredibly responsive and durable. Thank you for bringing back a more 'solid' not incredibly bright colored shoe that matches all outfits!

I'd also recommend: Brooks PureGrit, New Balance Minimus

Love these. They are so much like the first pair of Pureflows I bought about 5 years ago. They do run small, so I had to go up a whole size.

This is my first pair of running shoes. I spent a lot of time researching different brands ( Saucony, Asic, New Balance, Nike, etc.) as well as read hundreds of reviews. I found that this brand and specific style shoe received superior reviews/ratings. I have ran once in these and so far they seem OK. I felt as if I were developing shin splints due to the angle of my foot (taller support in the ball area compared to the heel so my feet sit at an upward angle). The reason, I am used to running in minimalist style shoes that don't offer as much support as these and allow my foot to maintain a fairly flat position. They are a very light shoe and I LOVE the arch support. I ordered a sz 6 which I typically wear. They are a little tight and probably would've been better off with a 6 1/2; however, once they stretch a little I believe they'll be perfect.
