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

Not for me

  • Too much arch

Comments about PureConnect 2:

The Pure Connect wasn't a good fit for my foot. I was really surprised because from the research I did, it sounded great for people with narrow feet and high arches, which is exactly me but I found the arch support very uncomfortable, I could even walk around the house and the heel too narrow. It was simply not a good fit for my foot. I exchanged them for the Pure Flows and am very please, the arch is less intense and the footbed feels a tinge wider. So if you find the Pure Flows to be a bit too wide for you, give these a shot, they might be just what you are looking for.

      Comments about PureConnect 2:

      I really liked the original PureConnects, however, I do not like the PureConnect3, the soles are way too thick. After some research, I found that the Connect2 was more like the original Connects. To me they still seem to be a little bit thick; I like a close to the road feel and a very flexible shoe with some forefoot cushion, but I do like these shoes and will probably feel more like my originals after a little wear. ;) Maybe Brooks can bring in a a Pure Project shoe that is more of a minimalist shoe.

        I use these to do about 20k a week on road surface. Shoe is lightweight and provides cushioning for my midfoot strike.
        I ordered a half size bigger than my regular shoe size, after trying them on in a store before purchasing online.
        I have a narrow foot and high arch, and love the fit of these shoes! I couldn't be happier with them.

        I use these for all my activities, indoor and outdoor. I love that they are lightweight, making it great for running. I love that it has air pockets for my feet to breathe, but it makes it hard to do anything in the grass or if the pavement is even remotely wet my feet get soaked.

          Comments about PureConnect 2:

          Overall, I really love these shoes. Great cushion, fast and very comfortable. The arch is very high and over time it started to affect my gait and caused hip pain. Once I stopped running in them, the pain ceased. Perhaps different inserts would lessen the arch. If you have high arches and an efficient gait.... these shoes are awesome!

          I am running in the Pure Cadence and find them to be wonderful as well. A bit of a different feel but no issues with an excessively high arch.
