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 women. 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:

    These shoes have everything I was looking for and more. The grip is phenomenal. I wanted good trail running shoes for making it up and down mountain trails and these are perfect. The first mountain I tried them on is part of an iconic race every year in Alaska: Mt Marathon. It's 3 miles to the top with an elevation gain of 3000 ft. Average grade is 38% and max of 60%. The mountain has levels of mud, clay mud, and loose shale. These shoes held their grip with all of it. I loved the certainty of every step. The way down was great, too. The way the shoe holds your foot ensures you aren't ramming your toes into the front of your shoe with every step. I kicked quite a few rocks on the way down and the top toe guard protected my foot beautifully.

    One drawback that I see is limited impact absorbency. I think this is because the bottom of the shoe is designed to protect from the errant rock or root, so it's a bit stiffer than a normal running shoes.

    I've been running road races and tri's in pure flows for a few years now and I like the similarity between the two "pure" products. The pure grits just feel like the pure flow's trail running sister.

      Very grippy sole, great traction on rocks and dirt. To me this shoe is much more comfortable than the pure grit 2, being more cushion and lightweight. Unable to feel any seams or the logo on the toe box which was my problem with the pure grit 2. The pure grit 3 easily shaped to my foot and has been the most comfortable, lightweight trail shoe I have run in recently. Not clunky and very responsive.

      Comments about PureGrit 3:

      I'm in love! I really loved the feel of the Grit 2, but the absence of a rock plate and the non-agressive tread meant they ony came out on buffed out trails and there aren't many of those in my beloved Appalachian and Blue Ridge Mountains! These shoes have the same lightweight feel and responsiveness of the Grit 2 but the addition of the rock plate and toe protection means they can come out to play on the most technical trails. The updated and much more agressive tread means that they work well in wet conditions too! The only disappointment is the lack of tongue stabilization. I didn't notice on a few shorter runs, but after a 50k this weekend I found the tongue slid all the way to my lateral foot leaving a couple of sore spots where my feet made more contact with the laces on the downhills. I'll be attaching a couple of loops to prevent this from happening in the future and that is the ONLY thing I would change about these trail shoes. FINALLY the right combination of minimalism and protection for trails. I can't wait to wear these at Mountain Masochist this fall!

        These shoes are a good upgrade from the 2's. I've been running in my 2's for almost a year now and, while they are a fun and lightweight ride, they are really not suited for any trail with rocks or roots. Even after just a few miles my feet would be trashed. The 3's really have changed that. They borrow from the other Pure shoes a bit more which keeps them light but also gives a lot more needed cushioning (the PureCadence is my favorite shoe). My first run with them was a trail that I could just not do in my 2's and it felt amazing! Hoping the price comes down a bit before I want my second pair!

          Comments about PureGrit 3:

          I have been looking for a trail shoe that would not irritate my feet after having severe plantar fasciitis for over 2 years and I have finally found it! I wear Pure Cadences on roads and these feel very similar to me. The traction is great. I have worn them on some pretty rough trails and they performed great! I like them so much I want a 2nd pair.

          As to date, there is only 1 color to choose from though. More colors in this awesome shoe please!
