Runner's World Best Update (PureGrit 2)

$110.00 $66.00

Style #110139

When you want nothing to come between you and the trail, the ultra-light PureGrit won't get in your way. We constructed an outsole with an aggressive, multi-directional lug pattern for better grip on the ever-changing surfaces of adventure. Its concave shape delivers better balance by splaying out upon impact and creating more surface area for ground contact. With blazing colors, you'll light the trail on fire. Metaphorically.

We’re not the only people thrilled with the changes: Runner’s World® named the PureGrit 2 “Best Update” in the Trail Shoe Guide in the April 2013 issue. Sure, the editors noted the updates to the upper, what with the thinner and lighter materials, asymmetrical lacing, and burrito-wrap tongue. But as they wrote, “it’s underfoot where we noted the most meaningful change. The first version of the shoe had a clever outsole pattern that held well on loose dirt, but its swirly, pointed tread proved slick on rocks and roads. This update gets a more traditional design – diamond-shaped lugs have sharp edges that bite into nearly any surface.”

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.
