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 was looking for a minimalist shoe, but found out I needed a little more cushion than provided in a traditional minimalist shoe. These were perfect, not to much cushion where I can still feel the road but not every rock! I feel fast in these shoes and will always buy PureConnects. I am on my 2nd pair in 6 months.

After ONLY 2 months of wearing 1-2 times per week at light duty, 3 of the bottom pads fell off. Brooks is sending another pair but I will still be buying a new pair of shoes in 2 months because they designed them that way. Here is Brooks' response to my complaint.....

Hi Leigh,

Thank you for contacting Brooks Sports. We have sent you a one time replacement pair of shoes. Please allow 5-7 business days for your new shoes to arrive. All of our shoes are designed to be used specifically for running and walking. The Pure Connect 2 is a minimal running shoe made with fewer and lighter weight materials. When used for its intended purpose these shoes will have a life expectancy of 250-300 miles or 2-4 months.

Happy Running,
Kendall B

    Comments about PureConnect 2:

    After three foot surgeries in nine months, I had given up hope that I'd ever run again. My feet ached all the time whenever I tried a workout. My marathon-running friends had told me to try Brooks and I finally broke down and spent the money. Happily, I am back to running (5-10)miles a week and my feet don't hurt. I bought a second pair just to have on hand for later.

      Comments about PureConnect 2:

      I wear these for crossfit, and they are great for the running and WODs. I only swap these out for my weightlifting shoes for the oly lifts and weighted squats. I have a neutral foot with high arches, had been wearing INOV-8s, but needed something more supportive on the arches for box jumps, sprints, and other higher impact movements. These are perfect- still lightweight, have a minimalist feel, but there is a bit more cushion and a contoured footbed to support my arch and keep my feet in a good neutral position when landing any jump movement. Very happy with the purchase! But definitely size up by a half size. I'm an 8 in street shoes, an 8.5 in athletic shoes, and I needed a 9 in these.

              I ordered these after seeing them listed on a running website, and I loved everything about them, except for the sizing. I sent them back and ended up ordering a half size up, which fits much better.

              Comments about PureConnect 2:

              I've trained for 2 half marathons in these shoes, I love them, but have had to get a new pair after each race. I don't mind that I have to buy a full size over my "normal" size, it's just a number. The fit is fantastic, the arch support is good, shoe is light, fast, breathable... but the cusioning and arch support goes away so quickly! I run a maximum of 18 miles a week when I'm training, which isn't a ton, but the shoes still wear out quickly. Durability is the one thing I wish could be improved on this shoe.

              In comparison to the PC3 update, I found that the toe box on the PC3 was too roomy, so I am sticking with the PC2 for as long as they're made. (I own 3 pairs!) I hope the next gen of PureConnect is closer in structure to the PC2, but as durable as I have heard the PC3 to be.
