Additional Information

Like peanut butter and jelly or water and energy gels, the lightweight construction and lush cushioning of the PureFlow 2 are a perfect match. The key to blending the two is engineering comfort features in a lean way like a shaped BioMoGo DNA midsole that gives your feet a cushy feel without added materials. It's a match your feet will hunger for.


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 loving my new PureFlow 2! I bought these for use in my bootcamp and step classes at the gym. I bought my first pair of Brooks last year to train for my half marathon (Ghost 5) and have been sold on Brooks ever since! I was using other brands for my fitness classes, but since buying these I will never wear anything else! These are so comfy and provide lots of motion for bootcamp etc. I still run in Ghosts but these are even great for short morning runs on the treadmill!

I've been running in the PureFlow 1 and PureConnect 1 for a few years now. I found the Connect a bit narrow for me, but the Flow was PERFECT (Only thing better would have been 0mm drop.) The new PureFlow 2 has a terrible upper. The 1.0 had a nice wide-ish forefoot that allowed my toes to spread (better than the Connect 1.0); and the upper had just enough volume to keep my foot secure. The new PureFlow 2 upper is STUPID. Its narrower in the forefoot (Not the sole, just the upper) - but seemingly made of the same amount of fabric so there's more volume to it depth-wise. That extra volume means that when you toe-off the fabric bunches and squishes the toes. The fabric on the upper is much less soft now as well, so the bunching fabric feels even better (read: not). The asymmetrical lacing/tongue is not an improvement. It's annoying and not beneficial for a distance running shoe. Climbing shoe sure, distance running no. The symmetrical lacing on the PureFlow 1 was very comfortable - I had no pressure points. The soles are still good. :/
I'm returning these. I have to say if Brooks doesn't go back to the original design I'm going to look for a different company.
Dear Brooks: Please go back to the PureFlow 1 design; and make a lighter color shoe per line-up please. Those of us out in the Hot parts of the US find dark shoes impractical.

Comments about PureFlow 2:

I was looking for a new shoe to replace the launch I had been wearing for years. I wanted to try a more minimalistic shoe and I first ordered the Pure Connect but it wasn't a good fit for my foot. Though I have what most people consider a high arch and a narrow foot, the arch was too high and very uncomfortable. After some more research I decided to try the Pure Flows and am very pleased that I did. They felt great right out of the box. I don't have a lot of room in them and I need to wear my thin socks, but those are my typical running socks so it's not a problem for me. I've only done one very short run in them but so far they feel great, no complaints. I'm looking forward to putting some miles on these babies!

    Comments about PureFlow 2:

    I bought these because I needed a new pair of shoes for the half marathon I am doing in May. I read all of the reviews of the Spring 2014 shoes featured on Runners' World.com and at that time I was between the Pureflow 3 and a New Balance shoe. So next I went to the reviews to see what the costumer had to say about them. A lot of people said that the Pureflow 3 was more narrow, and instantly I knew that was going to be an issue for me. When I read the reviews of the Pureflow 2 from actual runners, I knew this was the right choice.
    I was running in Nike Pegasus for a while, and I bought them originally because I was having knee pains. The Pegasus were okay rehab running shoes, but after a while the back of the shoe would rub and irritate the back of my ankle and give me bad blisters. So, another reason I got the Pureflow2s was because the back looked lower.
    The shoe is extremely light and flexible, but still has a a lot cushioning. I took them out for their first run in Chicago last Saturday, and I was surprised how far I got in a brand new pair of shoes; 9 miles. I wanted to do 10 for training, but I was pleased to make it past 5 in a fresh pair of trainers.
    Lovin the sleek design. It is definitely my favorite shoe thus far both in style and function.

      Comments about PureFlow 2:

      I run 3 times a week, anywhere from 9 to 32 miles each week, depending if I am running a race. I love the way my shoe "hugs" my foot all the way around. I ran my first marathon in them and I only got 1 blister on top one of my pinky toes because I tied 1 of my shoes too tight! I have since ran another marathon and that time no blisters. I also ran one of my half marathons in pouring rain from mile 3 to 13.1 and then walked around some time before my 2 hour drive home and my shoes never fell apart. So far I have bought 4 pairs because I put high mileage on them. The reason I did not give 5 stars is that I am a mid-foot striker when I run so I wish it would have a little more cushion in that area.

      Love this shoe. It has made me a Books fan for life. My ONLY beef is I wish I could get more miles out of them. Usually around 350 I feel the need to replace. I pushed a pair to over 500 once, but I could feel it in my shins. But such a great shoe I just buy them in twos and fours so I always have a new pair on hand.

        Comments about PureFlow 2:

        I was looking to replace my Merrell Road Glove running shoes, which are light and flexible, but a bit narrow for my wide feet. I wasn't sure which of the Pure shoes would suit me so I got both the PureFlow and PureDrift. I knew that I needed a shoe that was wide enough for my feet, but was light and flexible as well. I also wanted a little bit of cushioning for my 13+ mile long runs. PureFlow is light and the toe box was wide enough for me, but it lacked the flexibility that I was looking for. The cushioning was a bit more than I needed and felt really stiff to me. I just got the wrong shoe.
        PureDrift worked out better for me, although there were some issues in that shoe as well.
