Additional Information

Embrace the ground beneath you with the featherweight feel and pliable flex of the PureConnect 2. This slim and nimble turn-hugger is the perfect fit when you crave less shoe and more freedom. A split toe groove extends toward the midfoot, engaging the natural movement of the foot and letting you feel every nuance of the run. With rad looks, the baby is ready to run, right out of the box.


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 purchased Pure Connect 2's due to the sad discontinuation of my favorite Green Slience. The second I slipped my foot into these gems I was won over just like the GS. Perfectly conforms to foot shape and arch. So light, supple, and soft. Promotes midfoot stride even more than my beloved Green Silence. Wore them in last marathon after just 2 runs and never had a better performance nor less soreness after. Usually after mile 20 feet start to suffer and slow but with Pure Connect 2 I ran away with the race of my life. Sizing note: I always wear 10.5 but Brooks recomended a full size up to 11.5. After trying 11 & 11.5 I found half sized up to 11 was the best fit. Love Brooks and their dream Pure Connect 2's!

I bought these hoping I could use them for Crossfit. The only 3 complaints I have about these shoes are; toe box area is narrow due to an under the netting toe wall. This wall is my biggest complaint about the shoe. If your feet start to spread, the toe wall starts to pinch by the outside of the big toe area. In crossfit, we do alot on the balls of our feet, which makes the front part of the foot spread. Ouch!
The second problem I have is that I wear a true to fit size 12. I had to buy a size 13 in the PC2. You better try them on before you order them on-line to make sure you get the right size.
Lastly, the arch support started hurting after wearing them for about 3 hours.
All in All, I returned these shoes to the Retailer for a full refund.
If your foot is narrow, and you get the right size, the shoes will be great runners for you.

    This is my second pair of brooks pure connect. Love em. I'm running only about 12 miles per week so these have been absolutely perfect. Nothing really negative to say because they do exactly as advertised.

    Comments about PureConnect 2:

    After using the PureConnect 1's for the past year and loving them, I tried these ones. Still awesome. The sole is the same, and the upper is even better than before. Cool lacing system. The biggest difference between the 2's and the 1's, I think, is the thicker, one-piece tongue that wraps around your foot better.
    A little narrow (like before), but I have narrow feet anyway, and just loosened the laces a bit. Love 'em.

    Really wish the connect 2 came with an option for wider feet. For more narrow feet, you will not find a better running shoe for the price.

      The PURE CONNECT2 has just the right amount of cushion. More than minimus, yet less than most runners... this is the optimum runner for me! I now own two extra pair for the upcoming months/year before they stop making this one : )
