Additional Information

Let your feet fly with light-as-air design and fully loaded flex. The PureConnect 3 gives you just enough shoe to go where the turns are tight and spontaneous breakaways are encouraged. With enhanced Toe Flex, streamlined medial side design, and a slightly more rounded heel, this kick is ready to kick.


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 a giant fan of the of the Pure Connect! I do a bootcamp class 5 days a week and find the cushion perfect for things like bleacher jumps and the snug fit & lightness perfect for sprints. I am not a runner but ran my first 5k in the Pure Connect 2 last summer and it was a lot easier than I thought. I figure it was the Pure Connect. However, I wouldn't recommend them for a regular runner/jogger because mine were pretty well done after the 5k and I'd only had them about 2 months. I've read that the Connect 3 have been redesigned to last longer, so we'll see about that.

My previous purchases had been the Pure Connect 2 and I searched high & low for more of this version in my size, but alas, there are a lot of big-footed women out there I guess. I was concerned about the Connect 3 because I'd read some poor reviews but I honestly can't find another shoe that I like more, so I decided to give it a try. The first pair I ordered in my size & they were too big by a half size. By the way, if you order from the Brooks site they have this cool guide to help you order the correct size - I ignored it on my first order. I've been wearing my new shipment now for about 2 weeks and I love them just as much as the connect 2. I can't figure out why people were dogging these so bad in reviews.

I'll continue to stick with the Pure Connect. Oh, and they're pretty too!

I had been wearing a different brand of shoes for years and with walking, they were okay. But, I started running and my knee started hurting. I did some research and realized I had a higher arch and needed better arch support. I Googled shoes with a higher arch and found Brooks. Armed with this new informtion, I tried on all of the Brooks shoes at the store and the Pure Connect 2 fit like a glove. I have had no complaints with them. I love everything about the shoe with a perfect fit throughout the entire shoe. They have been absolutely perfect for me. I would not change a thing in the Pure Connect 2's. I tried the Pure Connect 3's at the store the other day and found them too wide in the toe box. I tighten them to fit me better and the seam that runs around the toe box rippled hurting my foot. Now, I would not consider myself to have narrow feet. I did not like the seam that ran throughout the toe box. It rubbed and hurt my foot as I ran in them. Please please keep the Pure Connect 2 around or bring them back if they are gone. They were perfect!!! Why don't you just make a wider version of the Pure Connect 2's for those with wider feet and make them in new colors :) Please!! :)

    Comments about PureConnect 3:

    I was looking for a new pair of long-distance shoes after I wore my Newton's out completely (I'm a supinator). I have a pair of the original PureFlows that I love, but they are too short for long runs, so I ordered these and the PureFlow 3 in a half size up. The PureFlows were too tight (I have slightly wide feet, but not wide enough to wear wide shoes) but the Connects felt PERFECT! Just enough wiggle room for my feet, and I took the chance and wore them after only 3 miles to run a half marathon this weekend and they were great! No blisters, no discomfort. I'll be buying another pair as a backup when I wear my first pair out!

      I'm a big-time forefoot runner, and my Pure Connects always wear well through training. Excited to use this pair as my race shoe for the Dallas half in December.

        I have had foot surgery and need supportive shoes but want the lightweight feature as I build to longer runs. This is perfect! So happy!

        It would be a perfect shoe if it was a little wider. I love those those shoes but I really have to break them in to make them fit.

        Comments about PureConnect 3:

        I have a slightly narrow foot....my feet slide around in regular widths causing blisters and narrow widths are too tight. This shoe is the answer to my hard to fit feet! This is my 6th pair of the Pure Connects....2 of each version. The 3 has been my favorite so far. It's just snug enough and the more minimalist feel has been an absolute joy to run in. I've run marathons in these....they're not just for short distances.
