Simplify your life with the Brooks PureFlow. Created with the idea of doing more with less, this shoe is built on a simple, lightweight midsole that gives a resilient ride, yet still offers plenty of protection for the long haul. The curved heel and 4mm heel-to-toe drop promote midfoot and forefoot striking, and the upper is light and breathable while retaining a soft and supple feel. The result is a shoe that is flexible, responsive, and fast: great for everyday training and faster days.

Customer Reviews

Comments: So comfortable. I was hesitant to transition to a minimalist shoe, but they feel awesome, I ran 30 miles in them in my first weekend, breaking them in.
From: Margaret, Atlanta, GA

Comments: I am loving this shoe.  As far as I can tell, the split toe feature is a non-functional gimmick, but I find this shoe to be comfortable, responsive, and it has a well-cushioned feel without the bulk.  I didn't find the shoe to run large as indicated; I am wearing the same size as other running brands/models.  I have about 200 miles on my first pair and am curious to see how durable they are.  I plan to stick with them for a while.
