Additional Information

Embrace lightweight without losing cushion in the get-up-and-go women's 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 the sweet cushion in your running shoes, 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.

I'm a big fan of the Pureflow 2. So when these came out, I was due for new running shoes and purchased these. I just received them so I have not run in them.

However out of the box, the first thing I noticed is the color is not as pictured. The shoe is black (not charcoal), with fushia accents, and a very dark silver sole (not white). To be honest, I probably would not have purchased this (or at least this color) had I known it was black.

The toe box also feels tighter both in width and height. I really like the roomier toe box and that is why I preferred the pureflows over the other pure project models.

I will post more after a few runs, but I'm undecided about the shoes from first impressions.

I have been a marathoner for years, and recently switched to triathlons, training for Ironman this summer. I have been a Brooks lover for all those years, especially when the PureFlows came out, I finally could run pain free and my times were much faster than with previous shoes. I LOVE the PureFlow 2's and have bought almost 6 pairs of them in the past 1.5 years. The changes made to the PureFlow 3's are ridiculous. This is an almost minimal shoe, lightweight, made for mid-foot striking. WHY WOULD YOU CHANGE IT TO A NARROWER sole for people who have all the impact mid-foot!? I am disgusted by the 3's and hope that Brooks re-thinks their PureFlow design. Who tests these shoes? If you are mid-foot striker then a wider base is ideal. Making a narrower shoe is counter-intuitive. I hope Brooks goes back to the PureFlow 2 base, otherwise once I can't find the 2's I'm looking for another brand.

Love these shoes

  • Comfortable
  • Cushions Impact
  • Durable
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Wears Quickly

Best Uses

    I love these shoes. They're light weight, but still provide the cushioning that I need, especially in the heel. They did wear more quickly than I would like, but the benefits more than outweigh this. I highly recommend these!

      Brooks, How could you do it? You are breaking our hearts… and feet. The design of the 2 was perfection. These 3's are painfully narrow in the toe box, and I have very narrow feet! Please bring back the 2's. And quick. Please.

      Great for narrow feet

      By JPrun

      from California

      About Me Casual/ Recreational

      Pros

      • Comfortable
      • Good Arch Support
      • Lightweight

      Cons

        Best Uses

          I have owned Pureflow 1, 2 and 3 and 3 is definitely my favorite. I agree with most of the comments here, the shoes are very narrow. However I have very narrow feet and these shoes are like a hug. I feel like they're keeping my feet stable while I'm running. If you have a wider foot I can see how these shoes would be uncomfortable and feel too tight. They are pretty snug around my foot. But if you have narrow feet you should definitely give these a try. They're my favorite pair of running shoes so far.

          Disappointed

              Best Uses

                These are nothing like the pure flow 1. I was so impressed with the original ones. The pure flow 3's were awful and had certain areas that would hurt and not flex with the way I was bending. I will say I wasn't using them for running, it was more weight lifting and squat type exercises. The arch was also different and not comfortable! I don't know why they ruined and changed a perfectly good shoe!

                • Endurance Training

                Dislikes: Like all Brooks shoes, had to go up half a size from my normal. A little snug in the arch and just generally run more narrow than other Brooks shoes I've worn. Had to return the first pair because of a rough seam on the arch band; thankfully the second pair is better.

                Likes: Lightweight shoe that has helped solidify stride changes I was trying to make. Forefoot cushioning is great.
