      Comments about Mens Brooks PureConnect 3 Running Shoe:

      I bought the PureConnect 2 last year to be my main shoe for speedwork and race days. Before my purchase, I had some misgivings after friends said that the PC2 was too narrow. While it did pinch in spots, I generally found it comfortable. I didn't like its drop or the lacing, as they compromised comfort. But I tolerated it. I used it for a marathon, a half marathon, and many shorter races, in addition to regular temp runs. I wore it out.

      When looking for another lightweight speed/racing shoe, I decided to gamble on the PureConnect 3. It makes the PC2 look like a piker in comparison. It is far more comfortable. When I put my foot in the first time, it practically clicked in place. The shoe laced up comfortably. Once I started running, I felt properly cushioned and stabilized. Even the hardest surface--concrete--wasn't too jarring. The room in the toe box was perfect.

      I've had this pair only a couple of weeks, and have used them for only a couple runs: a hill repeat workout and 800m intervals. Both felt like a dream. I'm sure I'll wear out this pair long before the marathon I'm running in January. It will be worth it to buy another pair for the race.

      Comments about Mens Brooks PureConnect 3 Running Shoe:

      I use this product to run 1.5-5 miles 4-5 times a week. The shoe took a bit to break in. The shoe felt too narrow at first but is now comfortable. Overall, I like the light weight of the shoe for running and it feels natural to run.

        Comments about Mens Brooks PureConnect 3 Running Shoe:

        I was a huge fan of the original PureConnect, having purchased 5 pairs of them. To me, they were the perfect blend of light wieght, road feel, support and just enough impact cushioning.

        When Brooks released the PureConnect 2, I eagerly grabbed a pair, but I was crest fallen. They were too narrow and the increased cushioning muted all the great road feel from the originals.

        I tentatively tried the PureConnect 3 and I've got to say, Brooks nailed it! The width is once again perfect, and though these have much of the additional cushioned feel of the PureConnect 2, the road feel is much more like the origianl PureConnect. Additionally, the toe box is a bit wider (at least thats my perception) than the orginals, which gives me better stability.

        It also doesn't hurt that my wife thinks they look nice!

        Love these shoes...Brooks has restore my faith in the PureConnect.

          Comments about Mens Brooks PureConnect 3 Running Shoe:

          I was a huge fan of the first version of Pure Connect, then version 2 left me a little disappointed. Version 3 is a great update as Brooks made a number of enhancements to make this an even better running shoe. With just the right balance between cushioning and minimalism, I have run both a quick, fast run and a long, comfortable run and they are great for both.

          The site suggests to buy this shoe a 1/2 size up, but I found that a 1/2 size was too much. It felt very true to size. I run in Saucony Kinvara 4 size 12.5 because the toe box is much narrower, and ordered the same for Brooks. But I need a 12 in the Pure Connect 3, my true shoe size.
