Women's PureConnect 4

$100.00

Style #120176

The women's PureConnect 4 lightweight running shoes sports a minimalist profile but have it where it counts. Adaptive BioMoGo DNA in the midsole responds to your every step to provide custom cushion while the rounded heel helps your body move in its natural running motion. The toe-flex outsole pods move independently, giving you tremendous support and flexibility, and the conformable nav-band around the upper wraps your foot in featherweight comfort.

Like our core line, we hold the PureConnect 4 to the industry’s highest weartest and durability standards. Because of their lightweight construction, you can expect shoes the PureConnect 4 to last approximately 250-300 miles.

DNA Midsole

What is it?

Brooks DNA is an innovative and uniquely adaptive cushioning system. By adapting to your specific weight, pace, gait and running surface, DNA offers customized cushioning and adds a spring to your step.

Traditional cushioning takes a one-size-fits-all approach, but we know that each runner is different. Brooks DNA was developed to continuously tailor the level of cushioning to your specific needs – even as they change during the run.

How does it work?

Brooks DNA is made up of a highly viscous non-Newtonian material or more simply put, a material that adapts to the specific force you apply to it. Part of the brilliance is that this compound was engineered to perform at the molecular level (picture millions of resilient 'nanosprings').

If you looked at Brooks DNA through a microscope, you'd see that it's made up of individual molecules connected in strands. These strands (which form chains) react to the amount of force placed on the foot, dispersing pressure and providing resiliency. Bottom line of this physics lesson: You get tailored cushioning that reacts to your specific weight, pace, gait, movement and running environment – "made-for-me" cushioning vs. "one size fits all."

And, as with all good technology, we’ve taken it a step further (two steps actually):

  • BioMoGo DNA is DNA technology blended with the BioMoGo midsole to provide adaptive cushioning throughout the midsole vs. just in the heel and forefoot.
  • BioMoGo DNA midsole includes an organic, non-toxic additive that biodegrades the midsole 50 times faster than traditional EVA when it comes into contact with anaerobic landfill microbes (otherwise known as active, enclosed landfills).

  • 30% more cushioning than standard midsole materials (gel or EVA)
  • Twice as much energy return for more pep in your step
  • Great performance no matter your weight or running pace
  • Smoother transition from heel to toe

Rounded Heel

What is it?

“Rounded Heel” is just a fancy name that we like to use for the rounded and reduced heel on our shoes. The slight curvature in the heel vastly improves the alignment of your body, encouraging a more efficient stride.

How does it work?

It’s really quite simple. The curvature in the heel works to align the body by shifting the contact point forward. As you hit the ground there is a greater clearance distance under the middle of your heel, which aligns force through the center of your ankle, thus reducing internal stress on your body.

    Comments about PureConnect 4:

    My second pair of Brooks. I love how light they feel and don't feel as if they're weighing my feet down.Great pair of shoes. I run in these because they are lightweight. Only issue is i wish it had a little more support of the sides of the shoe for lateral stability.

        As someone who has a difficult time finding the motivation to leave the couch and hit the treadmill, these shoes provide the motivation - in both looks and comfort. I purchased the Pink/Orange/Yellow PureConnect 4's and not only are these shoes super cute, but they are extremely comfortable. I can run for an hour and not have any problems with comfort. I would 100% recommend these shoes.

          Comments about PureConnect 4:

          I absolutely loved the first generation of Connects. I tried the second generation and couldn't even run in them because of the changes that were made. Thank you for bringing back the same toe box! This version has a little more cushioning and the overall shoe is slightly larger than Connect 1. It has the same feel of running in really comfortable socks. If your foot strikes on ball of your foot when you run, this shoe has the perfect amount of support without being chunky.
          Brooks, please don't change the toe box in the next version. And please make more colors of Connect 4 so I can buy all of the them.

            I have been using Brooks PureConnect 4 for endurance training. I usually wear a 9 but in my running shoes I wear a 9.5. These shoes fit comfortably right out of the box. I will be using these for endurance training. Rowing, running and indoor biking.

              Had the PureConnect2s and loved them. These are even better, lighter and more comfortable. I'm a huge fan of Brooks sneakers, I have a neuroma so I need a good size toe box and arch support. I've only done a few runs on the treadmill with them so far, but so far so good!
