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.

So incredibly disappointed!

By RunHappy?

About Me Avid Athlete

Pros

  • None

Cons

  • Narrow / Tight
  • Poor Color Options
  • Too Stiff
  • Uncomfortable

Best Uses

  • None

1) DO NOT - I REPEAT - *DO NOT* DISCONTINUE THE 2 DESIGN!!!
2) BRING BACK THE WIDER 2 IN THE FUTURE 4 DESIGN!!

IF YOU DO NOT, YOU WILL LOSE A LARGE NUMBER OF DISAPPOINTED CUSTOMERS.

Also, the color options on the 3 are terrible. For the 4 give us brighter, fun options like the purple and pink colors of the 2.

No more "RUN HAPPY" for me with this terrible 3 design!

    My husband bought me these after I had to return the Brooks Adrenalines because they caused me tremendous knee pain. These sneaks have great cushioning support and I've only run in them twice so far but my knees aren't complaining so I'm happy! I would upgrade my four stars to five if my knees continue to be happy after my runs! :) I would have to agree that the toe box does seem a LITTLE bit narrow- I have very narrow feet anyway, so I just loosened up the laces and I was fine but I could see how someone with wider feet would not be able to wear these.

    not the same shoe at all

    By henzcoop

    from Boston, MA

    About Me Avid Athlete

    Pros

    • Lightweight

    Cons

    • Narrow / Tight
    • Poor Cushioning
    • Uncomfortable
    • Unresponsive

    Best Uses

      Loved the pureflow1-- Combination of wide toe box, good responsive forefront cushion, and low heel drop made them like wonderful cushy hooves.

      In stark contrast, the pureflow3 still impels a midfoot/forefoot strike by having a low heel drop, BUT the narrow toe box and unresponsive forefront cushion make every footstrike torturous.

      PLEASE bring back the 1!

        Great shoe, very comfortable. I wear a size 7 but in ALL Brooks I am a size 8. Wore them all day 12 hours for three days in a row and I work on my feet all day. My feet and legs felt great. They gave me a little bounce in my step that energized my legs.
