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 love this shoe! I run long distances in these shoes. The best thing about this shoe, in my opinion, is that it is lightweight! I love how this shoe feels light on my feet. The shoe is slightly narrow, but it doesn't bother me. It could have a little more cushion in the front, but the heel has plenty of cushion. In conclusion, I am happy about the way the shoe feels and preforms on my long runs. Hopefully more shoes can be made similar to this!

      Comments about PureFlow 2:

      I got these because I had a great cross country season in the first edition of Pureflows. I absolutely loved the first version so after reading reviews that compared the second and third versions, I went with the second one. So far, everything seems to be fine and feels very similar to the first version! The only annoying part is that the back of the shoe is unnecessarily high, causing blisters in the Achilles area. But since I love the overall performance of the shoes, I just bought higher socks to solve the problem. I've been using the shoes for trail, pavement, and gym running. I also got these a full size higher than my normal size because I've been doing that with all of my running shoes.

        Comments about PureFlow 2:

        I had three different other running shoes as I began running before I got injured figured I should really invest in shoes that were right for me. That's when I discovered the Pure Flow 2s! I run about 30 miles per week on average and have done 2 half marathons in them. They have just enough support for those who are not true minimalists and need slight stability with pronation, while still being a light, comfortable shoe. The heel support in the back is great (not "bendy" like so many other shoes). I also have very high arches and am a forefoot-midfoot runner, and these shoes are perfect. I typically get around 270-300 miles in them before I need to replace them.

        I highly recommend the Pure Flow 2s for anyone who wants a little bit of support while still having a minimalist shoe. I will continue to purchase the Pure Flow 2s for as long as Brooks keeps offering them!

          Comments about PureFlow 2:

          I've been running for 20 years and these are the best shoes I've ever purchased. Not too much shoe, but just enough to feel supported and lightly cushioned while running. The curved lacing makes the shoe fit snugly without being too tight--no ouch points from the lacing. If I had to come up with a complaint it would be that the purple color doesn't match everything. But, then, I'm running not entering a fashion contest.
