Not the #5

Comments about Mens Brooks PureCadence 5 Running Shoe:

Absolutely horrible! Darn Brooks for doing this...again. I loved the original PureCadence, but the changes to #2 and #3 didn't work because they were too wide in the toe box and the lacing system bunched up at the toe creating a knot that rubbed the top of my foot. PureCadence #4 fixed this, but now they went back to a completely different lacing system again, which is like the #2 & #3. So if you liked those you will probably like #5. Me, not so much. I returned them.

Another new line flop...WHY?

Comments about Mens Brooks PureCadence 5 Running Shoe:

The decision makers of the Pure Cadence keep switching from one extreme to another. I am sure there is a marketing reason to explain it, but I am so sad. I loved the original and # 4, but 2, 3, and 5 all have the lacing system that causes the shoe to bend so much that I can feel it on the top of my foot. I was hopeful for the #5, but unfortunately I never even got out of the house with them. I had to return them immediately. I am SO disappointed, I loved the Cadence 4...I went through 5 pair and I can't find anymore in my size. Now comes the biennial march to find another shoe...

    Comments about Mens Brooks PureCadence 5 Running Shoe:

    I've been a loyal wearer of PureCadence since the beginning. I feel as though they've gotten worse with each successive model, with the 3's and 5's being the worse so far. I read the reviews on the 5's before buying and noticed that people had issues with the tongue. I figured these issues were personal and that each foot is shaped different, so I would likely not suffer the same fate. Man, was I wrong. The tongue must have a major design flaw. For me, the upper edge of the tongue is digging into the top of my foot, especially when my foot dorsiflexes. The tongue is way too stiff and doesn't give upon dorsiflexion. I might try cutting the tongue or somehow giving myself relief from this. However, I don't know if that's possible due to the design. I think I will finally have to move on from this shoe. I'm very disappointed. I don't know why Brooks continues to tinker with this shoe's design. They continuously ruin a good thing.

    Comments about Mens Brooks PureCadence 5 Running Shoe:

    Brooks missed it on this new Pure Cadence. I have run on almost every model of Pure Cadence Brooks produced and loved them except this shoe. The Pure Cadence 5 has issues with the tongue of the shoe causing blisters on the top of my foot near the toe joints. I also had a blister on one heel. This has never happened with any other Pure Cadence design. Brooks took away some of the cushion on the tongue and in the heel area. Unfortunately I had to send the two pair I bought back. Now I'm searching for a different shoe. Brooks - get the next redesign right!

      Tongue is terribly uncomfortable, lacing system causing the lowest point of the laces to bunch up and dig into the top of my foot. I have been wearing the Purecadence since the original, all of them were great until this version. I can't even mow the lawn in these. Go back to the 4, Brooks.

          Was afraid to try the shoe based off reviews of the 4 but after trying several other shoes and having some physical issues decided to give the 5 a try. The shoe ride good and is very comfortable. The tongue is not great but would not stop me from buying or recommending the shoe. In fact am about to purchase 2 more pairs. Do wish they would go back to the old style tongue.

          Comments about Mens Brooks PureCadence 5 Running Shoe:

          I have run in every version of the PureCadence since their introduction, and they have been my go-to shoe for my base miles during marathon and half-marathon training (~20-30 miles/week in these shoes). I loved v1 and v2 (despite the burrito tongue), hated v3 (reverse burrito tongue and stiff upper), and tolerated v4 (ugly). When I saw all of the negative reviews of v5, I started looking for another shoe. After several unsuccessful purchases, I decided to give these a try anyway. Maybe my expectations were low, or maybe I just have different feet, but I love these shoes. Despite the major redesign, I think they feel very similar to v1, my personal favorite. I have had zero issue with the tongue, which seems to be a major issue in the poor reviews. I never thought the nav band or split toe did anything from a utility standpoint, so the removal of these doesn't make any difference to me. The one issue I have is that Brooks has increased the weight of these shoes in every new version, culminating in this one coming in at 9.7 oz. I draw the line at 10 oz when I buy shoes, and would greatly prefer them to be under 9 oz. Finally, this is one of the best looking shoes both design-wise and color-wise in PureCadence history. I would encourage you to give these a try despite the bad reviews out there, especially with the RRS 90-day test run policy.

          Back to the PureCadence 4

          Comments about Mens Brooks PureCadence 5 Running Shoe:

          I also returned these shoes with the 90 day guarantee. The tongue is hard plastic and cut into the tops of my feet. I am not sure why Brooks went away from the attached shoe-tongue but they need to go back. I tried to give these shoes time but no amount of breaking-in would help. I went back to version 4.

            Comments about Mens Brooks PureCadence 5 Running Shoe:

            I don't know who at Brooks is responsible for the updates to this shoe, but they need to go back to the drawing board. I've been a Pure Cadence runner since version 2, and I liked each update better than the last, but I'm extremely disappointed in these. The first few runs caused blisters on 2 toes and the back of my heel (Achilles) and sensitivity (rubbing) on the top of my right foot. I thought they might get better as they broke in, and the toes/instep seemed to improve, but the shoes tore up my heels on every run. After trying bandages and tape thinking I could break them in I finally had to give up and return them before the 90 day deadline. This was the first time I ever had to use the 90 day guarantee, but I was really glad to have it.
