Women's PureConnect 3

$100.00 $65.00

Style #120156

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:

    This is my second pair of Brooks, and I now see myself as a customer for life. I love to be active outdoors and recently began trail running. These shoes have been spectacular. Since I am not an extremely experienced runner, my knowledge of shoes may be limited. However, these have everything I could ask for. Lightweight, super comfortable with no "break-in" period, supportive, breathable - and they just feel great. One feature I LOVE is that the tongue is attached near the arch so it doesn't slide outward, which has always been a problem for me. Thank you Brooks! My only complaint is that near the big toe of my right shoe, one of the oval-shapes of the sole has started to detach. I have put quite a few miles on them, but my runner friend says this happened sooner than it should have.

    The only thing I'm not fond of with this shoe is the gentle uplift in the toes. I want my toes to lie flat in the shoe as I have a bad toe joint and having the uplift irritates the joint. :)

          I purchased this shoe after trying it on at a local shoe store. They had a size 8 which felt slightly small, but they did not have an 8.5 so I ordered online. The cushioning in the shoe is so comfortable. The arch support is adequate. I suffer from plantar fasciitis and these shoe are the best athletic shoes I have worn in a long time. I use them for daily wear because running aggravates my condition. I would recommend these shoes.

            I started training for a half marathon and never found a shoe that was quite right for my high arches. These are the exception. I bought two pairs after my first one because I loved them that much.

              The only thing I don't like about this shoe is that the white gets dirty when I trail run--but it's a great shoe, and I love the color! I wear it mostly road running, but some light trail running as well.

                I bought the PureConnect3 to be an everyday shoe because I loved how they looked. They are every bit as comfortable as other Brooks shoes I've tried. My custom orthotics fit perfectly in them. Very happy with my purchase!

                  I am 55 years old. I don't run, but needed a good supportive shoe with arch support for my TRX and gym workouts. These fit the bill perfectly. They feel supportive from heel to toe and all around from top to bottom.
                  I have plantar fasciitis and my feet do not hurt at all in this shoe. I don't have any slipping on various surfaces, but I am able to move freely with good support.
                  I also wear these shoes for walking, and they are holding up well in that situation as well.

                    I needed a pair of good shoes for lifting and Crossfit. These shoes aren't as 'minimal' as most world recommend for these activities, but I have really high arches and need the extra support. I wouldn't use these for running since I have so many problems with my feet (I use my Brooks Adrenalin for that), but they work great for Crossfit. They are good at keeping you on your heels for squats and other lifts... Plus, they're cute :)
