Additional Information

Let your feet fly with light-as-air design and fully loaded flex. The PureConnect 3 gives you just enough shoe to go where the turns are tight and spontaneous breakaways are encouraged. With enhanced Toe Flex, streamlined medial side design, and a slightly more rounded heel, this kick is ready to kick.


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.

After much research and many shoe trials, I have found my perfect shoe and it's the Pure Connect 3. It's lightweight, flexible, has great traction for the rugged ashphalt I run on and has excellent durability to stand up to my 4 miles a day of running with my dog. I love the toe box and the freedom of movement with the unique design of the toe box.
Thank you Brooks and Pure Project Team! You've made a fabulous contribution to the comfort and joy of running!

I had been wearing a different brand of shoes for years and with walking, they were okay. But, I started running and my knee started hurting. I did some research and realized I had a higher arch and needed better arch support. I Googled shoes with a higher arch and found Brooks. Armed with this new informtion, I tried on all of the Brooks shoes at the store and the Pure Connect 2 fit like a glove. I have had no complaints with them. I love everything about the shoe with a perfect fit throughout the entire shoe. They have been absolutely perfect for me. I would not change a thing in the Pure Connect 2's. I tried the Pure Connect 3's at the store the other day and found them too wide in the toe box. I tighten them to fit me better and the seam that runs around the toe box rippled hurting my foot. Now, I would not consider myself to have narrow feet. I did not like the seam that ran throughout the toe box. It rubbed and hurt my foot as I ran in them. Please please keep the Pure Connect 2 around or bring them back if they are gone. They were perfect!!! Why don't you just make a wider version of the Pure Connect 2's for those with wider feet and make them in new colors :) Please!! :)

    Comments about PureConnect 3:

    I have a narrow forefoot and struggle with finding well-fitting running shoes. I am grateful that Brooks decided to go back to the more streamlined forefoot that the first version of the Pure Connect offered. The 3rd version is similar but with a little more cushion and arch support. It is perfect for both training runs and races! Please do not change this shoe!!!!!

      Comments about PureConnect 3:

      These shoes make me believe I'm an Olympic runner. I can run so fast in them! I have long since gotten over chosing shoes based on colors but, at least to me, the Pure line could do better on color selections. The sizing issue is correct in v3. v2 I had to order a 1/2 size up. Keep up the good work Brooks!

          Comments about PureConnect 3:

          I was looking for a new pair of long-distance shoes after I wore my Newton's out completely (I'm a supinator). I have a pair of the original PureFlows that I love, but they are too short for long runs, so I ordered these and the PureFlow 3 in a half size up. The PureFlows were too tight (I have slightly wide feet, but not wide enough to wear wide shoes) but the Connects felt PERFECT! Just enough wiggle room for my feet, and I took the chance and wore them after only 3 miles to run a half marathon this weekend and they were great! No blisters, no discomfort. I'll be buying another pair as a backup when I wear my first pair out!
