Additional Information

Getting support doesn't mean gaining weight when it comes to this ultra-light yet stable turn-hugger. It starts with our perfected Rounded Heel that aligns your strike, and then transitions to a sculpted medial midfoot with a wider and more integrated Nav Band, finishing with supreme flex, featherweight materials, and full-throttle looks. The result: feeling supported without feeling the shoe.


Just like our core line, we hold PureProject to the industry’s highest weartest and durability standards. Because of their lightweight construction and fewer materials, runners should generally expect shoes from the PureProject line to last approximately 250-300 miles.

    I am not a serious runner, I run for fitness and have to limit my distance no more than 5k every other day due to old ankle injury. I ran in PureCadence 2 before this purchase because it was the "only" shoe I could run in. I have ankle damage and heel strike is painfull but I can run in PureCadence 2/3 with little or no heel strike due to the heel design. The #3 is slightly narrower in the toe box than the #2 but not too much. I have wide feet and the #2 needed to be laced tightly. The #3 is still wide enough in the toe with some room to spare with my wide feet. The Nav Band is a different design and is supporting well and the tongue is now open to the outside (which seems more natural), opposite the side it opened on the #2. To sum it up I moved from size 10.5 PureCadence 2 to size 10.5 PureCadence 3 with no negatives to report.

    Made the switch to low profile show with my beloved Brooks (from GT). The PC-2 is a great shoe. Fantastic. PC-3: too narrow, stiffer sole material, upper cross band is not elastic - very rigid.

    I'm hopeful that Brooks will get back on track and return to what built their brand: quality, constancy, trust!!!

    Comments about PureCadence 3:

    I have been using this shoe since it was first produced by Books. The cadence 3 is great except for the width or toe box area is too small. I have a wide foot and the previous models were always wide enough to allow the extra room. I would tell people to order a larger size but I don't think that will help much with the width of the shoe.

          Comments about PureCadence 3:

          These are the first sneakers I bought in 8 years. My how technology has changed! These are very lightweight without being unnerving. The oblique lacing pattern takes a little getting used to but it's fine. I love the way the tongue is fixed on one side, avoiding the common tongue slide-to-the-side problem. The midfoot band really does perform as designed, holding your foot without feeling like a band at all.

          The best part of this sneaker is the heel. Haveing had cross trainers with a blocky heel forever, I was a little apprehensive moving to a dedicated running sneaker when I plan to play squash & tennis in it. No problem there. PureCadence is wonderful, and the rounded heel transitions heel strike better; no more strike-slap, strike-slap.

          I'm a mild-to-moderate pronator, and the fit/support was better than the Ravennas which I bought at the same time to trial both. No uncomfortable seams, no awkward pressure points. Just a delightful sneaker, which anyone but a hyperspecialized athlete would be happy to wear as an all-purpose sneaker.
