Additional Information

Experience the next best thing to naked feet with the hyper-light PureDrift. Spread those toes with two split grooves that allow your forefoot to flex through its three functional units. A hardly-there upper has a close fit and provides a little more coverage than a birthday suit. When you really want to feel free as a bird, remove the sockliner for a zero drop experience. Feet, meet feel.


Please note: The PureDrift was designed with a wider toe box than other Brooks shoes. If you prefer a more snug fit, size down half a size.


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.

My local running store recommended them to me. I spent the winter/spring season after my first marathon transitioning to them from the Adrenaline GTS. Major change in stride, leg strength and speed. The transition took time (5 months) but I saw increased speed and agility at each race. I didn't think they were built for marathons--but I've run two in them and feel great. I like the wider toe box, as it makes room for my expanding feet over long runs. If you're switching between road & trail, however, these are not the best shoes. You feel EVERYTHING. I can't imagine wearing anything else for my road training and racing. However, they are not for everyone, so please take your time in trying them. Can't wait for new colors!

There's no doubt that Brooks produces the highest quality running shoes. I love all my Brooks shoes and was excited for these. I ordered half a size down and I think the size was right, however the shoe is way too wide and boxy and left a strange baggy look in the toe area. Otherwise appears to be a super comfortable shoe. For someone with wider feet this may be the perfect she for you, I'll just have to try a different pair.

Comments about PureDrift:

These shoes are very comfortable and lightweight. They are perfect for running in as well as gym work. The length of the shoe is true to size, but the toe box feels a bit wide and with the laces being a bit higher up, its hard to adjust. I do like the placement of the laces across the top of the foot rather than directly on top of the foot where irritation from a high arch could occur. Great shoe overall!

      Comments about PureDrift:

      These are very light and pretty comfortable. I ordered half a size larger than my regular shoe and it's a perfect fit. I'm brand new to running but I love that these shoes hardly weigh anything and that there is plenty of wiggle room for toes. :)

      Comments about PureDrift:

      I walk several miles most days with my dogs and need a shoe that has a wide enough toe box area to relieve the pressure on my errant third toe. With narrower lasts, the end of my toe rubs against the inside and has developed a callus and damaged toenail and I'd like to see if I can correct that. So far, so good. I also really like the way the tongue comes in from the side vs. middle.

      Comments about PureDrift:

      Love these shoes. Bought them for a military selection course that was extremely running heavy.
      they held up great but i did start to get wear in the big toe area but i was very rough on the shoes. Overall one of the best running shoes ive owned which is saying something.
