    Comments about Womens Brooks PureDrift Running Shoe:

    I absolutely love these shoes! I got them for racing and they are perfect! Lightweight, comfortable and a great transition from the Pureflow 2s I run in right now. I think since I was already running in a more minimal shoe my transition to these has been easier. If you have been running in a more cushioned shoe make sure to work into them slowly since they are minimal. I highly recommend them for anyone whether you race or just want to have less weight and bulk on your feet!

          Comments about Womens Brooks PureDrift Running Shoe:

          I bought these shoes as a 'minimal' zero drop shoe for gym workouts and light, short, quick running. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the feel of this shoe! I had been using Vibram Toe shoes but wanted something with a lace for more support in the gym. We often do short, quick runs in workouts so these are the perfect all-around shoe for my gig.

          They are true to size - although I bought 1/2 size up so I have the option for thin socks. I have wide feet so the wide toe box is a perfect match. I haven't had them long enough to know exactly how long they will hold up in the gym but so far they are perfect!

              Comments about Womens Brooks PureDrift Running Shoe:

              I'm not an avid runner, but I try hard. I live in Vibram toe shoes for their comfort as I am really sensitive to pressure on the top of my feet. But they are not so hot with pavement running. I found these while shopping for spikes for my track daughter and decided to give them a try. I run on the Burke Gilman Trail and they were super bouncy. I like that they let my feet and toes spread out like my Vibrams, but give me more cushion to absorb the pavement hits. Have even worn them at work where I stand and walk all day on pavement and they were great. They really allow your feet to breathe. Only complaint is the top lace area, though super helpful being off-set, pinches sometimes. I'm sure I just need to find that sweet spot. I liked these so much, my husband decided to try the men's PUREDRIFT.

                Comments about Womens Brooks PureDrift Running Shoe:

                The first time I put these on, I knew I'd found my next favorite running shoes. I prefer a neutral shoe with minimal support/cushion and plenty of room in the toe box, and these fit the bill perfectly. I've been running in PureGrit trail shoes for the last year and liked those very well (I've done 12 half marathons as well as two Ragnar relays in PureGrit). The PureDrift have more room in the toebox, yet wrap around my arch and heel perfectly. I took them out for an 8.5 mile run for my first real test of them. Once I made a slight adjustment to how I had them tied (a little too snug across the arch initially), I forgot I was wearing new shoes--no issues at all. Love them!

                  Comments about Womens Brooks PureDrift Running Shoe:

                  First, let me describe my feet. I would call them beefy, chunky, wide. In dress shoes I wear 7.5 EE or extra wide. I ordered an 8 in these shoes and they fit me like a glove, even when wearing what I consider a thick sock. These shoes have a wide, squared off toe box. I have tried the PureFlow and it was too narrow for me. The Drift toe box also allows the big toe to be aligned straight and not bent, which is perfect for my slight bunion on my left foot. The down side to these shoes is there is really very little between the bottom of your foot and the ground - virtually no cushion. Very much a minimal, zero drop shoe. I am cross training in the gym with them. I do not think I would run in them - I currently run in Newtons, also a zero drop shoe but with much more cushion / support on the bottom. I am giving 4 starts instead of 5 due to the lack of cushion. Overall a great shoe but note it runs wide (which is good for me, but may not be good for everyone).

                    I have the pure cadence and love them. Did part of my Disney training and ran the race. These fit great but the toe box is wider so I went down a half size. These are fast and feel great on the feet. I am not sure about a marathon but definately a half! I wish they still had the original cadence in stock.. if not hope the cadence 2 is just as good.

                        As I licensed Physical Therapist, I have a fair base of knowledge for proper foot support and posture. I have high arches, over supinate (under pronate), and my first toes that are dropped lower than the rest of my toes. I love brooks pure connect and ghost shoes. I absolutely hate these. First of all, when puting them on, the tongue is uncomfortable on the inside of the foot and the post to the outside arch is uncomfortable. The medial (inside) arch support is minimal to non-existent. Not at all like the comfortable band in the pure Connect shoes. When taking my first steps, the shoes actually threw me into so much toe in and over pronation that it caused immediate medial knee strain and discomfort. Maybe these are the shoe for you but in my personal and professional opinion, they should scrap these forever.
