A slightly-below-above-average-running-shoe

Comments about Mens Brooks PureFlow 5 Running Shoe:

Fine shoe. Ready to run right out of the box. Toe box is small to tight. The upper is very flexible and conforms nicely to your foot. Shoe has a taller profile, but heel-toe drop is minimal. Good shoe for a neutral gait.

Comments about Mens Brooks PureFlow 5 Running Shoe:

I've used the Pureflow exclusively for training and racing, so I track the mileage on my shoes closely.

What I Like: Very small drop, lightweight shoe and the look is pretty good for running shoes.

What I DON'T Like:
(1) The tongue was ENTIRELY too stiff. It caused a blister at the bend point where the leg meets the ankle. I ended up Gorilla Gluing the tongue in half, which fixed the issue but should not be necessary.

(2) The shoes only gave me about 250-275 miles. I began getting terrible shin splints around that mileage. I'm about 145 in a Men's size 9. I expect AT LEAST 300 miles out of a running shoe.

My Favorite Shoe

By STEVE

Comments about Mens Brooks PureFlow 5 Running Shoe:

As a 5'9" 182 lb. male supinator who jog/runs four days a week, I find these shoes to be the perfect fit. I had been a more serious runner, in my younger days and have tried many shoes. The Nike Free gave me knee injuries and the Nike Air were difficult to walk in. The 'drop' of the Brooks "Pure Flow 5" seems perfect for both walking fast and jogging and the cushion is just right. The only negative about these (my favorite shoe) is the way they pick up small pebbles between the deep tread.

Comments about Mens Brooks PureFlow 5 Running Shoe:

Like others have noted, these shoes are narrow. I don't have wide feet, but I can't wear them. They will be going back!

Just not a good fit for me. Seems to be well constructed, but not at all comfortable for the shape of my foot.

Disappointed with every update since the original.

By James

Comments about Mens Brooks PureFlow 5 Running Shoe:

When the Pure Flow originally was introduced, it was my everything, everyday running shoe. The 4MM offset worked for me as did the wide toe box, one of the main selling points. Since then I have tried every update and every update has been too narrow in the toe box! I like the weight, the flexibility with the new tread pattern, the colors, and the offset, but I still can't wear them because the toe box remains too narrow and after a six mile run I have blisters to prove it. If you have a narrow foot, try it, but until it comes with a wider toe box I can't use it.

Too much cusion for a neutral shoe.

By Alan

About Me Avid Athlete

Comments about Mens Brooks PureFlow 5 Running Shoe:

The added cushion in this "neutral" shoe is cashing my foot to have to over pronate in order to make up for the cushion design. This added stress is causing overused and pain in my foot. May be more suitable for someone with a low arch.

Compare to Pure Flow 4

By Mark

from Kailua

Pros

  • Firm

Cons

  • Toe Box Feels Tighter
  • Tongue Not As Soft

Best Uses

  • Distance Runninig

Comments about Mens Brooks PureFlow 5 Running Shoe:

Compared to the PF 4 this feels different enough that I am not sure I like it as well. It feels tighter in the toes primarily. I can feel the heel stack more which might be because I have been running on my 4s for months.

I don't like the new tongue, it is stiffer and digs into my ankle.

My verdict is to give more time and decide.
