Additional Information

Getting support doesn't mean adding extra weight when it comes to this ultra-light yet stable turn-hugger. It starts with our perfected Rounded Heel that aligns your strike, and then transitions to a sculpted medial midfoot with a wider and more integrated Nav Band, finishing with supreme flex, featherweight materials, and full-throttle looks. The result: feeling supported without feeling the shoe.


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.

When I started running & was told I was an over-pronator, naturally I became part of the motion-control shoe club, & my first pair of shoes weighed like a ton of bricks. I thought I was sentenced to 2 ton shoes until, eventually, I found my way to the Adrenaline GTS line, which I have loved and been devoted to ever since. That is, until...I decided to try my luck with Pure Cadence. Perhaps my arches and stride have strengthened & improved with time, but recently I felt I needed shoes with even less weight, while still providing some measure of control. I knew I still didn't qualify for a neutral shoe, so when I read about the Pure Cadences, it sounded like the perfect solution. I was wary, since the Adrenalines had served me so well & consistently receive high ratings. Based on reviews, the Pure Cadence line didn't seem to rate quite as well. But what doesn't work for one person may work for another, and you never know until you try, so I held my breath & went for the purchase. And I am so glad I did! These shoes feel like they were made for me. Light & airy, with still enough guidance. I had read that a lot of people find the width too narrow, but my feet are on the narrow side as it is, so the fit was ideal for me. For others, however, I can see where it may feel too tight. Considering how light it is, I can still feel great cushioning with every step off. Better yet, I ran my first race (5K) without orthotics for the first time this week & my feet never felt better! I felt like I was running on clouds. Another added benefit is how cool & stylish the colors and design are. I know those are not the priority factors one considers in buying the right shoe, but it sure doesn't hurt! As for durability, I haven't had them long enough to attest to that, so only time will tell. Otherwise, love this shoe & will plan on another pair in the future.

I ran 23 marathons and ultras in the original PC. Those shoes were heavenly, and I wore out 8 pairs. The switch to angled laces in the PC2 was a disaster, loosening and causing injury during my distance runs. I've been waiting a year for this PC3 and was crushed to see they were designed with the angled laces again. In addition to that, the stitching across the toe joints pinched just walking around in the store. Yikes. I couldn't buy them, and I'm so bummed.
I have a hard time believing the glowing reviews on this website are from actual runners/customers. This shoe is not like the original PC.
I love love love the original version of this shoe, and so did many others - I used to see lots of people wearing Pure Cadence at marathons.. Go back to the original design for the PC4 and I will come sprinting back as a customer. For now, I need to find other shoes for my 2014 race season.

      Comments about PureCadence 3:

      I liked my Ghosts but needed a little more support. I still got my miles out of them but ordered Adrenaline next and did fine. This time I wanted more support. I only jog 3 to 5 miles and alternate with an exercise DVD, but I'm on my feet all day and my feet ache at times so I wanted to try Pure Cadence. They feel so good that I want to wear them all day, so I do sometimes! Guess I'm gonna have to get another pair. They feel great while jogging. I do not pronate so they might be a little too much arch support, but so far so good.

        These shoes are great. My daughter had bought them-she's a nurse and wears them to work- and liked them so much she suggested them for me. Happy she did!

          Comments about PureCadence 3:

          I bought this shoe along with Asics Gel Kayan for longer distance. There is an extremely noticeable difference in my speed (distance runner) between these two shoes. Not that my purpose is to sales pitch one over the other, I'm just giving an example of how lightweight the pure cadence is. The Pure Cadence is extremely comfortable, very supportive, and seriously runs for me, I love it. I track my runs on the NikeApp and distinguish between shoes, my pace is at least 30-50 seconds faster when I wear the Pure Cadence. Love them. I need to get a couple more pairs before a newer model replaces them.

          These are better than the 2's but still nowhere close to the 1's. They are too narrow and a little stiff. I don't like how they changed the split toe, it's almost pointless to have it split like this.
