Additional Information

Embrace lightweight without losing cushion in the get-up-and-go PureFlow 3. We've fine-tuned features like a more rounded heel, sculpted the medial side while integrating a wider Nav Band, and repositioned the Toe Flex to better align your stride. So all you feel is that sweet cushion, and all you need is the open road.

We’re not the only people going with the Flow: Runner’s World Magazine named the PureFlow 3 its "Best Update" in their March 2014 issue. The editors praised new design for its smoother landing, more flexibility in the forefoot, and improved fit; calling the PureFlow 3 "a bargain-priced trainer that handles a lot of miles."


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.

The new PureFlow 3's are awesome. I loved the PureFlow 1's and not a fan at all of the PureFlow 2's, in fact I gave my 2's away after several uses. The new PureFlow 3's are great. I use them for running and CrossFit on the days i'm either running or doing box jumps. They are very comfortable and the Black/Red colorway looks much nicer than in the photo's.
Anyone who loved the PureFlow 1's i would suggest to pick up a pair of the new 3's because this is an upgrade to the 1's and you will be very happy with them. I just hope they come out with some other (bright) colorways this year so I can have a variety when my current pair wears out. Not a fan of the blue and all black. Brooks, I loved the original men's blue on the PF 1's, they rocked and i got tons of compliments and the original greens were pretty awesome as well.
Great shoe, if you hit the gym, run, into triathalons or CrossFit i suggest you pick up a pair of these shoes I promise you won't be disappointed!

I have long been awaiting a new pure flow to be released. I fell in love with the original pure flow and logged many miles in them. Needing a new shoe, I naturally purchased the pure flow 2, but was less than impressed with the new design. With the pure flow 3, I was hoping to get that feel of the original shoe. When I first put the shoe on, my initial thought was these are too narrow. After one 5 mile run in them, I am skeptical about them. I have areas on the tops of my toes where the shoe was rubbing pretty aggressively. If you decide to purchase think about buying a 1/2 size larger. I will give them a couple more runs and see how they turn out. On the other hand, the shoe has the perfect amount of cushioning and support that I was looking for. I could see myself able to run many miles in them if it weren't for the cramped feel.

Comments about PureFlow 3:

I'd been running in the Pure Flow 2s for two seasons and loved them. I like a natural feel, low drop, light, cushion shoe for marathon distance running. The Pure Flow 2 hit that mark nicely. I was looking forward to trying out the 3s given the positive reviews I'd read, but I found them to be more narrow than the 2s. They just weren't as comfortable, and I ended up buying another pair of 2s. I hope Brooks makes the 4th version of this shoe a little bit wider, allowing toes to spread more naturally. Still, a great shoe, but more so for a narrow foot.

    Comments about PureFlow 3:

    PureFlow 3 are too narrow. Also the shoe rubs the top of my foot. Now matter how I adjust the laces the shoe is not comfortable.

    Don't expect the PureFlow 3 to be a good replacement for the PureFlow 2

      I plan to use these shoes (black/silver) to walk to work. It's a 2 mile hike each way and these shoes are right on the edge as good for office shoes. I've never had a Brooks shoe that was not good.

        I have been a Pure Flow guy since they came out and have ran in close to 15 pairs to date. They feel one with my foot and provide the cushion and support I need for runs that may be 4 miles to 43 miles in length.

          Comments about PureFlow 3:

          The changes in the upper from the PureFlow 2 to the PureFlow 3 are much more significant than other reviews led me to believe. I've now run twice in the 3's (6 miles and 9 miles) and fear I've lost my favorite shoe. The upper is too narrow, too constricting, and the outsides of my ankles rub on the shoe.

          The PureFlow 1 and 2 were my favorite shoes ever. I went through six pairs. I loved the weight, the cushioning, and the fit. I was never injured and they always felt great--whether I ran 15 miles a week or 35.

          The 3s have now changed in ways that don't work for my foot. First, the upper is too narrow. On my first run, my feet starting falling asleep a mile into the run. I loosened the laces as much as I could, but the nav band and the upper-most lace still felt too tight (and I've run out of lace). Second, the outside of my ankle rubs on either the ankle-pocket or the wrap-around tongue (I suspect it's the ankle-pocket, but it's hard to see that while running).

          During my 9 mile run today, my feet never fell asleep, but the upper still feels too tight. I don't believe I need a larger size since I have a full thumb-width between my big toe and the end of the toe-box. Throughout my run I played with the laces and tongue, but I couldn't eliminate the ankle-rub, and the uper-most lace always felt too tight across my tendons.

          The cushioning in the 3 feel great--as good as ever. But the upper is a deal-breaker for me.

          I guess I'll stock up on left-over 2s and hope Brooks quickly makes minor changes to make the upper a little more like the old shoes.
