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

    Fits like a glove. I do have a narrow foot, long 1st toe, good arch, this sneaker fits me perfect. I wear them all day long chasing after 18 month old twins, walk a lot pushing twin stroller, even jog with it in these. Did go up 1/2 size, wear thin to no socks. Lightest shoe I've ever had. Have 3 pairs now. Very pleased.

      Comments about PureConnect 2:

      Quite possibly the best shoes I've ever run in, they fit very well in the toe box and I have had issues in the past with blisters because of a too small toe box. They felt very different compared to Nike Free, which is what I'm used to running in, when standing but while running I liked them quite a bit more.

          I love the way these shoes feel and look. I always receive compliments on them. I have only had them for a few months and the front material of the shoe starting peeling off after a month or so. I wear them while weight training:/ ? Other than them looking old, they are comfy.

          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.

              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.
