Additional Information

Let your feet sing 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.

    Since the first version of PureConnect hit the market, I've owned and run in every single color released. In all the prior versions, the PC's seemed to run a bit narrow and most anyone who has owned these knows that you had to order at least a full size larger than you normally would in any other type or brand. However, the PC3 finally fits much better now. If you've ever owned a prior version of the PC, you can safely order a half size down and be quite comfortable. For example, I usually wear about an 11 in street shoes and 11.5 in running shoes, but used to order 12's in PC's. I ordered a 12 and an 11.5 in the PC3, and the 11.5 fits the best.

    The toe box is much roomier than it has been, the sole has received some love borrowing from some of its other "Pure" relatives/ancestors. The PC has always been the last stop on the road to minimalism, yet maintains many of the features you want from beefier type running shoes and the PC3 is no different. It's still a very lightweight shoe, yet has just enough cushion without overdoing it. Overall, I feel it's the best one yet.

    Went for my first run on the PureConnect 3. Terrible. Weird fit. Pinching on bottom of both feet, at the big toe pad. Rubbing on both feet where toes meet my foot. Heel never felt right. Also shoes felt clunky and heavy.

    I am returning to return these shoesfor the PureConnect 2. Never had any problem with
    versions 1 or 2. Ran marathons in those shoes and loved the weight and feel.

        After all but destroying my Connect 1's,I was about to purchase the 2's but decided to hold out for the 3's.I'm glad I waited because the fit and feel was much better than the 2's.I've put about 75 miles on them and know that I'll buy a couple more pair before they are discontinued.They feel slightly more cushioned than the 1s and 2s are seemingly a lot more forgiving on my feet.I liked
        the others but these are definitely a marked improvement.I've also found I am reluctant to use the other shoes in my rotation.Excellant kicks!

            Great, but not as good as the PC2

            Last season had the PC2. I liked them a lot. Never got a sore spot while running. Bottoms were gone in one season.

            The PC3 has a little different fit than the 2. Still has the great roomy toe box. But the tongue design, I hate. Why connect one side? The side that isn't connected now lands on the top of my foot in an odd place. Also, the stitching at the base of the tongue rubbed on the top of one of my toes. I think this will get better over time, but should have left the tongue design alone.

            This is still a great lightweight shoe with cushion for mid foot landers.

            I loved the pure connect 2 size 9 and was looking forward to the 3 version. The size 9 seems longer and more narrow in the forefoot and less snug at the arch. I'm not a fan of the change in fit. None the less, I ran 12 miles in them yesterday and they felt fine. Just wish they had the same fit as the 2 version.
