Comments: The new asymmetrical lacing is awkward, and does not offer me the same secure fit that I felt with the first version of the shoe. It also makes my foot-pod almost useless. I prefer the earlier version.

Comments: Great shoe, and so light that it hugs your feet like you aren't wearing shoes at all. I use it daily for my 10-15 mile walks and still feel great!!! Worth the money!

Comments: I think I am going to become a convert. The shoe feels great, hugs your feet, is very light and the cushioning is just right. The split toe makes a big difference in the forefoot for me who is using this as a transition shoe from a Newton Gravity

Comments: I agree with David's review. The 2 has a much more superior upper and that was my problem with the 1's was the nav-band being intrusive on my high instep. The fit is the "like a glove" fit but not overly tight on the foot. Of course the shoe is lightweight, super cushy and can be used for any form of slow/med/fast training. Personally i really like the arch bump, feels great on longer runs. Overall..highly recommend it and running warehouse.
Comments: I admittedly ran in the Pureconnect 1 since the day it came out in my local running shop. The 2 has a superior upper with better breathability and I like the burrito tongue; in fact it makes the nav-band feel less intrusive to me. A lot of people complain with the fit, it's a narrow shoe with a pronounced arch. It just happens to fit my foot perfectly. I use it for all my long runs and marathons, its pretty much become my everyday trainer, and it's versatile enough for speedwork too.
