Brooks Running PureProject Giveaway

by Meghann on July 17, 2012

When I flew to New York last month to “geek out” over all things running-related with Brooks Running, there was one thing in particular I was the most excited to hear about:

The PureProject Line

IMG_5210.JPG

I’m not sure exactly when the trend of in-your-face neon shoes rolled onto the scene, but I LIKE it! These babies immediately caught my attention and I quickly determined I wanted one in each color (I know, I know – never pick a running shoe based on color, BUT did you see how pretty they are?!?)

IMG_5218.JPG

Luckily, after hearing all there was to hear about the PureProject line, I was still very interested in the shoes (though I was a teensy bit sad the pink one I had my eyes on didn’t fit my needs) and still couldn’t wait to try one of them out when I got home.

The PureProject line is Brooks’ version of minimalist shoes. The terms “barefoot running” and “minimalist” are BIG buzzwords in the running world right now, but – to be truthful – I didn’t know much about either until I met with Brooks. I’ve read some articles on the new trends, but not much. I knew that running barefoot forced heel strikers to become toe strikers, which could potentially help out with knee problems or IT band issues. I also knew that barefoot running was something you had to eventually work yourself up to, or risk injury. What I didn’t know was why.

When we start out as runners, our bodies learn to naturally adapt to running a certain way. Whether it be striking the ground with our heels, the middle of our foot, or the toes first; the muscles and tendons that run all the way from our hips to our feet work together to make the strike happen. If we change the position of our strike – and thus change the position of our form – our body has to realign itself to process in a way that doesn’t feel natural to it. The body may revolt, which leads to injury. This is why new barefoot runners who are now striking on their toes instead of their heels are instructed to start out slow and work their way up. This allows their bodies a chance to adapt and trains the muscles to anticipate the new way of striking. This could take anywhere from a few months, to over a year to accomplish.

When Brooks took a hard look at barefoot running, it wasn’t the forced toe striking that caught their attention – the risk of injury was too great for that. Instead, they were inspired by the natural motion of the foot in barefoot running and the experience attached with feeling the ground. When developing the PureProject line, their objective was to promote the natural motion on a softer surface, so the body could still hit in its natural way.

Minimalist shoes are all about activating the feet to create balance and to experience the “nitty-gritty” portions of the run. The PureProject line does not change your footfall pattern, which allows your feet and muscles to activate in a safe and natural way. The shoes are bio-mechanicanally the same with how your foot would hit in any other shoes, it’s just a preference of experience.

Basically, the PureProject line is about as close as you can get to barefoot running in the terms of feeling the ground without needing to change your strike or, you know, run barefoot. “Feel more with less” is the tagline.

Within the PureProject line, there are four “pure” shoes.

PureGrit-o-opt1.png

PureGrit

Built for trail runners who want to feel the trail under their feet. The light shoe allows the foot to control the run. The concave shape and the pivot center of the shoe allows for a more active experience.

PureCadence-o-opt1.png

PureCadence

The PureCadence offers a little more stability with mild to moderate support, which makes it the perfect minimalist shoe for the overpronator. The PureCadence is typically recommended for the Adrenaline shoe runners.

PureFlow-o-opt1.png

PureFlow

A neutral minimalist shoe that is favorited by Ghost runners. Very lightweight with mild support that allows for an engaged running experience.

PureConnect-o-opt1.png

PureConnect

The lightest and most flexible shoe of the PureProject series, the PureConnect allows runners to feel the most connected to the ground. This shoe is as minimalist as the PureProject line gets.

When first looking at the shoes, I was all set to put my money on the Pure Cadence – what? the pink sold me! – but I quickly discovered the PureCadence was not the shoe for me. Since I am not an overpronator, I had no need for the additional support. Darn.

Instead I decided to test out the PureConnect. Seeing as the connect allows you to “connect” most with the ground, I figured it was better to go big or go home with this one.

IMG_7926.JPG

Yes, the neon green is just as bright and crazy in person. I love it.

IMG_7874.JPG

The shoe itself is light as a feather and feels like nothing when you pick it up or put it on your feet. The secret to the light weight is the open mesh material. The material also allows your foot to breathe, which is a HUGE plus in the Florida summer heat.

IMG_7881.JPG

The shoe also fits like a glove thanks to the nav band, which runs across the top of your foot width wise.

IMG_7885.JPG

The first time I put the shoes on I was surprised how unstable I felt in the shoe. The bottom almost gave a cleet-like feeling. The grooves and natural crevices are meant to mimic foot anatomy, creating balance. Running felt right with the crevices, but just standing on my tile in the kitchen felt off – it took a minute to get used to it.

IMG_7891.JPG

I took the PureConnects on their first run yesterday morning. We did a 4 mile straight and back, all on sidewalk.

My initial impression was how incredibly light these babies were. I really did feel like I was wearing nothing on my feet and it was just me and the road. I thought I would feel every rock or bump on the run, but that wasn’t the case. No rocks, no bumps, and no pounding of the legs. There weren’t any changes in my stride, or where my feet struck the ground. It felt normal, only my feet/legs were working a tad harder to grip the ground.I got that feeling that I was “connected” to the run, and it was awesome.

IMG_7912.JPG

I thought they were fun. It was definitely a different experience compared to my cushiony Glycerins (which are like little pillows on my feet), but not in a bad way – just a different way.

Minimalist shoes are not meant to be a racing shoe. They are all about activating the feet to create balance, while in a race you want a shoe to create efficiency in terms of speed (i.e. let the shoe do the work while you run). The PureProject line is not about speed, it’s about experience. They’re there for when a runner wants to have a little fun or to break up everyday running.

They’re so light, I wouldn’t mind making the PureConnects my go-to traveling running shoe. I also think it’s just fun to mix it up every once in a while. It’s always a good idea for runners to have a toolbox of running shoes. Being open to the idea of choice keeps it fun and exciting. There are no right or wrong answers – it’s just about what you’re in the mood for and what works for you. :)

PureCadence! I am an overpronator but don’t like all of the clunky shoes that come in those lines most of the time. A minimalist shoe for an overpronator? Yes please!

I would pick the PureGrit. As a trail runner, I’m always looking for new trail shoes because every trail is different and each trail shoe can be more suitable for a certain type of trail. The PureGrit would be perfect for a section of trails I run almost every Saturday.

I’d love a pare of the Pure Cadence, I wear Brooks Adrenaline now to run & love them so I’m sure I’d enjoy running with these as well. Plus, they’re pink & well, you can’t go wrong with that! :)

PureCadence! I wear Adrenaline and <3 them! But I've been afraid to spend money on a pair of minimalist shoes in case they don't work for my legs/knees as an overpronator with two knee surgeries under my belt. But winning a pair to try it out?! Yes, please!

The PureGrit is the way I’d go. Since most trail shoes are incredibly weighty it can make off road running a chore. I don’t have the luxury of smooth pavement or track running all the time and having a comfortable shoe that can handle trail, field and pavement makes this shoe a nice triple threat.

35 Lindsay Knake July 17, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Run Happy. That’s what Brooks is all about, and that’s what I’m all about.

With the running shoe trend of lighter, more minimal shoes and lower heal-toe drops, it’s nice to see Brooks making their own such products. I’ve worn Brooks shoes for a decade, and as I’ve transitioned into more minimal shoes, the majority of thickly-cushioned Brooks shoes has left me out in the cold with one of my favorite brands.

The PureProject line is opening that door again.

I’d choose the Brooks PureConnect, because it’s the most lightweight of the bunch. I don’t have a pair, but I’ve tried them on before. The shoes are very comfortable and would be a fun shoe to add to my rotation. The ability to wear the Pure Project shoes sockless is another great aspect of the shoes — especially on a record hot summer like many states are having!

Brooks has been my go-to shoe for several years now. I fell in love with the Cascadias and they felt great for the ultra trail runs but they’re heavy. I’ve moved toward minimal shoes recently with my new favorite the NB100s. I’ve run in the PureConnect and am thrilled that they feel similar with more cushioning. I have a 50 mile trail run coming up and am dying to try the PureGrit. I really think they will be my new best friend!

I actually have the Pure Flows and LOVE them! But I have always wanted to try the Pure Connect since they came out. I love the Cadance but I am not a pronator either and don’t need the support. There is just something about a bright pinks shoe that always attracts my attention!!

I’ve got to go with the PureCadence since I’m in love with the Adrenaline series and hesitant to try the minImalist shoes. Part of me fears buyers remorse on a minimalist shoe when the Adrenalines work so well now. :)

I would choose the PureFlow shoes. I don’t over- or underpronate, so I usually opt for shoes with neutral stability.

These shoes look incredible! I would definitely go with the PureCadence shoes – I am an overpronator! 10 years of tumbling and cheerleading have wreaked havoc on my ankles, and I use all the support I can get in a running shoe. I’m new to running (I’ve only been running for about 6 months, but I’m now training for my first long race – 10 miles!), and I love your blog!

I think I would go with the PureFlow becuase I have been running in normal shoes over the years and think these would help me ease into the barefoot running craze.

Although I suspect I mildly overpronate because I have a flatter foot this has yet to be confirmed.

I’m in need of some new shoes so this comes at the perfect time. I LOVE neon running shoes :)

I would choose the PureConnect because I have a pair and LOVE them! I can’t run many miles at a time right now due to knee surgery that I’m recovering from but for my short, quick runs, these things are awesome! To me, they don’t feel too, too minimalist. They are cushy on my heel and I haven’t noticed any pain in my recovering knee (or the one that needs to be operated on). I’ll probably go back to my chunky, more highly cushioned Asics when I’m ready for long distances but these will definitely stay in the rotation! They’re good for time in the gym too– lots of comments and compliments on their, ahem, brightness. :)

Well I own a pair of the PureProject shoes and do like them. They feel great but it is very hard to get past the look. Still, they have been extremely comfortable and I have gotten a lot of miles out of them and this is a big thing too. I too am going the route of minimalist and also own a pair of barefoot running shoes I run in once a week. I have had no trouble but then again I also spend as much time as possible barefoot anyway…..one of the perks of living in FL! Good luck!

I would have to say the PureConnect – they remind me of my cross country racing shoes (without the spikes of course) – it would be nice to run with that connect feeling again!! Thanks for all the info – I just started training for my first 1/2 and I need to create that running toolbox – I also loved your tip on letting the shoe do the work – reminds me of what my soccer coaches use to say – nice to know that in all sports there’s equipment that can get you where you need to go!

I am in love with brooks. I am even more in love with the pure project. Most of all I am in love with the Pure flow. I bought my current pair around when they came out and readily available. I have put 500 plus mIles on them and still they are my go to shoe for everything. Whether its a long training run, marathon, or speed work on the track, I continually come back to the pure flow. For me it’s the best marriage of minimalist ideal and cushion/support for the long haul. I would love to receive a free pair (size 8 por favor!) of pure flows, but the truth is if I don’t get them, I will buy them again!

It’s a tough choice between the Pure Connect and Pure Flow. I like the idea of the Connect but I am also a Brooks Ghost lover which makes me wonder if the Flow may be more right for me. Either way I am dying to buy a pair of these new Pure shoes, although winning them would be even better!

PureCadence or PureFlow for sure! I’d choose pink or the bright green! I LOVE these!

I would absolutely want to try out the PureConnect. I was drooling over these in store the other day! I have a pretty standard strike when I run, but I generally use my Mizuno Wave Rider 15s because I love the stability they give me. It would be a nice change to “feel” my run a little bit more!

Based on your description I think the Pure Flow would be good. I’ve been wondering if a more minimalist shoe might help some of my running-related injuries, but as a heavier runner I’m not sure the super-minimalist Pure Connect would be god for me.

I have a pair of pure connects and I love them. I’ve switched entirely to minimal shoes, and the connects have become my “big, cushy, long run shoe”, as opposed to the slipper like things I run in otherwise. But they’re amazing, and the extra cushion is hugely helpful for long runs. But mine are in sad shape–400ish miles and a marathon on them, and they’re looking rough! I’d love a new pair!

I would definitely pick the Pure Flow — because it’s purple! Just kidding (sort of). I’m actually quite a neutral runner, so the Pure Flow seems like the best match for me.

If I got the chance to pick one of these shoes, I would definitely pick the PureCadence.

I overpronate terribly when I run, which the fitting guy at the shoe store thought was odd for somebody so young. I want to continue to run, not necessarily race for the competitiveness, for the rest of my life. I’ve always kind of wanted to try barefoot-type running, but most brands don’t have the support I need to keep me injury free. I think it would be awesome to feel light as a feather when I run, since I often feel like my shoes are dragging me down. I mean, I absolutely adore my Adrenalines that I have right now, but you can never fall in love again until you try, right?

Pure Flow — I’m a neutral runner and Ghost has been recommended for me previously. I’ve never tried a minimal shoe (I current run in Asics Gel Fortitude, since they are designed for large frame runners like myself), but am intrigued.

I would love to try the Pure Cadence shoe. I never thought I would be able to experience the feel of a minimalist shoe because of the fact that I need a more stable/supportive shoe. This looks like the best of both worlds!!

Great post! I have been duh-eye-ing to try the PureCadence shoes! I have been running in Adrenalines for about 3 1/2 years and it would be great to see how the lighter, more minimal but supportive PureCadence feels. Not to mention how cool I will look in them training for my 5th half! :)

Fun giveaway! I’d def. be interested in the pure cadence – not only because they are pink but because my flat feet def. require more stability!

I would definitely love to try the PureConnect too! I have collapsing arches so I wear expensive orthodic inserts, which require a neutral shoe as a base.

Great write-up — I haven’t heard much about Brooks minimalist shoes yet. I’d go for the pure cadence. I’m an overpronator and use Adrenalines for running, but I love my lightweight mesh cross-trainers, so this sounds like a good way to dip a toe into the minimalist shoe thing.

The Pure Cadence seems like it might help me out in the future.

I would try the PureFlow because it has arch support without being bulking. I like the tighter fit around my foot while I run, so the mesh around the foot would be a very nice.

Brooks Pure Cadence CHANGED MY LIFE – As a 20 year loyalist to ANOTHER brand, doctors were recommending I hang up my running shoes due to severe pain in my feet. Not one doctor recommended I change my shoe type – but a running store employee did and it made all the difference. I am now running pain free and a HUGE fan on the Brooks Pure Cadence. I’m ready for another pair -no matter the color. Thank you for the opportunity to win a pair !!

828 Diana July 18, 2012 at 8:49 am

I had some knee problems a few months ago and decided to get properly fitted. I ended up buying the Adrenaline 12, which I didn’t quite like but felt so right for my feet. (I had been running in nike frees, so compared to them my new Brooks seemed chunky). It took me about a week to warm up to them but we’ve been in love ever since. I’ve read a few times about the Pure project and it would be interesting to see how they feel. I guess I’d choose the Cadence, since they’re the most appropriate ones for Adrenaline runners.
Oh and I think it’s so cool that you actually got to meet the Brooks people. I loved reading about that whole experience!

I currently run with the ASICS SkySpeed2 but they discontinued them. I ran the Rock and Roll USA Half Marathon in March of this year and Brooks sponsored it and I got to hang out with the Brooks peeps at the expo and try out some of their shoes. The Pure line was actually also recommended to me by Road Runner Sports and I was told the Pure Connect have the same feel as my SkySpeeds! That made me the happiest person ever and I cannot wait to run in them! Winning a pair would be icing on the cake :)
