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 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!!!

        This is one of the best shoes I've found for running. I've run several marathons in them and couldn't be happier. They fit perfectly and have just the right build for serious runners.

        I compared my size to a previous pair of Brooks and for some reason these are a half size too big.

          Comments about PureCadence 3:

          i was a huge fan of the pure cadence 1. it was (and still is) my favorite shoe ever. the second version was not awesome, so i took a hiatus and tried some ravenna 5s. those were ok, but a little too bulky. so i checked out the pure cadence 3s and it seemed like some of the things i disliked about the 2s, specifically the really narrow toe box, were better. so i ordered some, and so far they are great. not quite ready to put them on the same level as the originals, but definitely better than the second generation. looking forward to trying the 4s next.
