Additional Information

Pick a line, trust your shoes, and run absolutely wild. It’s as simple as that in the completely redesigned PureGrit 3 trail running shoe for men. Taking a cue from the mad grip of climbing shoes, this lightweight runner connects you to the terrain as it responds and protects you from its tricky elements. An outsole peppered with hex lugs delivers maximum grip, while a ballistic rock shield protects your foot from rocks and roots on the trail. A toe guard provides protection and added traction when the trail gets steep.

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.

    Comments about PureGrit 3:

    I've been running in the Pure series since it's inception. The latest 3 series of all of the shoes have lessened the "Pure" or "Natural" feel for a more stiff and less responsive shoes, and the PureGrit 3 is no different...but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The Grit 3 feels like a lightweight Cascadia. It's not nearly as flexible and responsive has the past Grit models, but it's still a more minimal version as they have all been versus the Cascadia. The ballistic protection and sole are all great improvements and the shoe still feels like a Pure, just not as much as before. It's still a great shoe and the improvements out weigh the detriments.

    Comments about PureGrit 3:

    I loved the original PGs except for the traction. PG2 was not my favorite. PG3 is the bomb! I ran a 50 in these practically right out of the box, PR'd and had no hot spots. With over 250 miles on them this summer they are starting to show a little wear, but that is the tradeoff for sticky traction, like having performance tires on my feet. The only changes I would make are color, but I am pretty conservative, and water retention. After stream crossings or on wet trails they can get a little squishy and the insole moves around. Not a show-stopper, but I hope they come out with another color soon because I am definitely buying another pair.

    I am pretty sure that the one star reviewer works for another shoe company or is describing a different shoe.

        Comments about PureGrit 3:

        I have been wearing Brooks shoes for 5 years, and have endured the decline of the products forced on to us, especially the "Pure" line. The addition of the Pure Grit was a good step in the minimalist, zero drop, trail shoe market. And, as we all know the grip on the first installment had more to be desired. There was a huge improvement in the Pure Grit 2. Then comes along this shoe, the Pure Grit 3. Although it has some cool colors, if it's performance you are after, you will be disappointed. I like to call this shoe the zero drop version of the Cascadia. It's bulky, feels heavy, the noby grip wore flat after 150 miles, and I am unable to run forefoot with these. Brooks: please discontinue these! Listen to runners, don't try to leed the market in the wrong direction.

          Comments about PureGrit 3:

          I absolutely loved the original Pure Grits, actually went through three pairs. Was disappointed with the 2nd generation, too stiff. I had written a review for the 2nd generation and it seems Brooks followed through and then some! I wore these shoes right out of the box on a seven mile hike with portions at 26% grade. Comfortable, lightweight and great traction! I'm on my feet all day and work and was never able to wear running shoes until the originals and now again with the Pure Grit 3s....thanks Brooks!!!

            I put probably 20-40 trail miles on a week, and this is a superb addition to my shoe rotation. I look forward to many fun runs in this shoe. The rocks are almost never felt with the rock plate, and the traction keeps you moving on the sharp angles. No issues what-so-ever with this shoe.
