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.

    Comments about PureFlow 3:

    I have fairly high arches narrow heels, and sort of paddle-shaped feet, so they are only narrow in areas. The toe box is perfect - roomy enough for my toes and the wide part, but also low enough between the instep and the toes, so it feels secure. It is hard to find this fit.

      Comments about PureFlow 3:

      I've ran in Brooks shoes for years; used to run in adrenalines, then when the Pure line came out, I switched over. I have ran in PureFlow 1,2,and now 3; PureConnect,PureCadance and PureGrit. The PureFlow is my favorite. I wasn't thrilled with the 2, but love changes made to the 3 version. I always buy 8.5 which is a half size bigger than my street shoes and I find the width to be just fine, although I have slightly narrow feet, especially my heals, and have had trouble in the past with my shoes slipping at the heals. The PureFlow3 has a great heal that kind of cups my heal, so no slip-age. These are very light weight, somewhat meshy and airy. I run on lots of dirt roads, have raced on pavement and even ran on rugged trails with these. Love them.

      Comments about PureFlow 3:

      I love the updates to the PureFlow in the 3. I really liked the 1, was pretty disappointed in the 2, and the 3 seems to have really come together as the perfect running shoe for me. The 1 and 2 had a major problem in my running: the sole had almost no grip, so it was bad in wet conditions and unusable in icy or trail conditions. I can actually go trail running (dry) in my 3s, and I'm confident that the new sole will be a big improvement this winter.

      This is a cushy, lightweight shoe, which I love. You feel the road in a good way--my feet feel connected with the terrain, not blocked off like with heaver shoes. It encourages a really comfortable and healthy gait, which is great.

      I do find that it wears out extremely quickly, with it looking visibly worn by 150 miles and pretty much dead soon after 200 miles. It also seems to not like running more than one marathon per pair for some reason--the really long runs just kill it. Great during, just dead afterward. I'm experimenting with rotating more pairs at once to see if that helps prolong the mileage per pair. Ultimately, though, I love this shoe and I'll keep buying them, despite the fast burnout (though it would be better if they lasted a bit longer, Brooks!)

        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.
