      I am a bit different. I prefer a treadmill over roads. I run 15-30 miles per week. Less than 5 are done on the road. This shoe has been perfect for me. Already have my third pair on deck for when I retire the current pair.

        Grate shoes with a 4.0 mil elevation.

        If these are your first minimalist shoes you have to learn to run with them, start with short runs.

        I used to have nee pains, they are totally gone.
        Les effort, more miles les pain= grate shoes.

        Good, but not as durable as I hoped

        Best Uses

        • Trail Running

        Comments about Mens Brooks pureconnect Running Shoe:

        This is my second pair of the PureConnect. I bought this second pair because my first pair were wearing out a little quicker than I had hoped and I did not want to switch shoes right before my next marathon. I have about 230 miles on my first pair, and I can tell I have about 30-60 more miles before they're done (1-2 weeks with the marathon 2 weeks out!) - the treads are wearing thin and a small hole is forming by the Brooks symbol on the left side of my left shoe. I understand that these types of shoes wear through quicker than normal, but as a 5'7" 150 pound runner I thought I would get closer to 350 out of them. I do like the shoe and hope the PureConnect 2 will last longer than the original as it is likely my next purchase.

        Comments about Mens Brooks pureconnect Running Shoe:

        This is my second pair of minimal shoes. They are surprisingly well cushioned for as light as they are. I'm 5'10" 185# and they provide plenty of cushioning. The way the mid-shoe is constructed feels tight when you put them on but not noticably while running. I find them not as comfortable as Brooks Green Silence but have no real complaints.
