    Doesn't fit like the old PureFlow

    2017/04/25 | Brooklyn, NY |

    Loved the old versions of this show. Have been devoted to Brooks for years. Even going a half size up the show felt wrong and tight in the toes. Otherwise they feel fine.

    Love the shoe

    2017/04/24 | Pittsburgh, PA |

    This is my first pair of Brooks and I'll definitely buy them again in the future. They are supportive, comfortable, & light weight. The find your true size tool was a huge help or I would have ordered a half-size too small.

    They fit great. I would buy these again.

    They felt very narrow when I first put them in but have pretty well conformed to my foot. The only downfall I still don't care for is the tongue of the shoe. I have to fold it down so it doesn't rub on my ankle. The edges of the tongue are not a thick soft material so it cuts/rubs my ankle unless it's folded.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    It's kinda narrow:(

    2017/04/21 | Earth |

    I've been using Brooks Pure Flow for a few years now and have loved them until this pair. While it is comfortable cushioning wise, it feels too narrow. I also was disappointed that the tongue is not attached. Over all though a good shoe and will buy another pair when these are done!!

    Runs small and too tight

    2017/04/21 | Chicago |

    Runs small and tight. The pure series have been my go to shoe for years, but these are nothing like the older ones. They are too stiff, I've never had to break in a pair of Brooks. Wish I had read the online reviews before buying these.

    Very tight narrow shoe

    2017/04/18 | Circleville, OH |

    I bought this shoe 1/2 size bigger than my Adrenalines. It is still almost a full size too small. This is a VERY narrow shoe. If you have even the slightest of a wide foot this shoe is not for you! I am training for a half marathon. This shoe is not, for me, a good shoe for this. The heel is tight and the width is very narrow! If you just have to have this shoe, try in stores first.

    Dissappointed in shoe structure

    2017/04/12 | Dayton, OH |

    Now that I have been more serious in my running, I have thoroughly researched the best shoes for short distances and interval training. While I read the reviews, everyone has different feet so I thought this would still be a good shoe for my shorter distances and intervals. I am disappointed in its performance on the short distances. I knew the shoe might be narrow however, I hoped different lacing might alleviate the tight fitting. I was wrong. My toes begin to lose feeling after the first mile and by the end of mile 3 the outside of the my foot is numb. I have tried different lacing techniques to give a little more space but it has not help. Interval training seems to be okay. I do not have the same issues, however, I am not running at a continuous pace or for long distances. Overall, I am disappointed. I am not able to necessarily be able to afford the latest and greatest generation so they may have fixed this issue in the more recent shoes. However, I would not recommend this shoe unless you already have a narrow foot. They are not good for normal or wide-side feet.

    My favorite daily trainer

    2017/04/11 | Ann Arbor |

    These are light-weight and speedy, not to mention they look great. Only downside is that they run small, I had to size up.

    Yes, I would recommend this!
