Men's PureCadence 3

$120.00 $78.00

Style #110161

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 average about 40-50 mi/week, and retire these @ about 350. I'd been hoarding pairs of PureCadence 2's, mostly because of the color options (love the black PC 2s), but finally started rotating these in towards the end of the summer. The PC 3's are growing on me, but I have a few minor complaints about the changes over the PC 2: the sole feels a little stiffer mid-foot and (for me) it seems to interrupt the transition from landing to push-off just a little; the upper seems narrower mid foot and pulls up on my arch more than I'm accustomed to (although this might ultimately be support that I need); and the colors are AWEFUL. Seriously Ugly.

If the PC2s were still available, I'd buy them indefinitely, but barring that the PureCadence in any iteration is still my go to shoe for a daily trainer, and I'd buy it over anything else.

That said, if you're listening Brooks, can we have some kind of black or dark gray as an option for the PC4? Seriously, some of us guys like to both run neutral and LOOK neutral!

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!!!

      Awesome shoe overall. Helped me move from a heel striker to a mid-foot runner. Plush and provides enough arch support to keep me balanced.

        Comments about PureCadence 3:

        After reading The Running Revolution I was looking for a shoe that was lighter weight and did not have as much heel support as the stability shoes I've always bought. In the past I usually run 3-4 miles and have had knee issues, which I now think were from heel striking. Found the Pure Cadence and they are a game changer for me. I'm working on not heel striking and these have been a perfect companion. I liked them so much that I bought a second pair after the first run. Now I run 4 times per week and upped my mileage to 10K and counting... I'll never go back to a bulky shoe and love these!

        Comments about PureCadence 3:

        These PureCadence 3 feel like they've been custom made for my stride. They have actually helped me get back to an almost neutral, much more forefoot strike. I've taken both of my pairs up to 10+ miles and they felt great the entire run. The only con I can really tell is that the outside heel lugs wear out extremely fast. Great show. Thanks Brooks!!

          Great shoes. Little wide in the toe box which may cause the feeling of .5 size too big. Extremely comfortable with less heel-toe drop than normal.
