Brooks PureConnect - Men's

This product can be shipped to US addresses ONLY. Feel the run from head to big toe with the radically lightweight and flexible Brooks PureConnect running shoe. Neutral runners who crave less shoe and more freedom will love the maximum breathability of an open mesh upper built on a slim and nimble underfoot. A split toe groove extends through the forefoot allowing the runner to really engage the foot and get a greater sense of connection to the ground. This is a shoe for those who want as little as possible between them and the road. BioMoGo DNA earth-friendly midsole technology is blended with Brooks DNA smart cushioning to tune cushion and response based on the needs of each and every runner. IDEAL inverted heel encourages contact points to shift forward, which aligns the joints and creates optimal energy return. Toe Flex split toe enhances forefoot flexibility and independently empowers the big toe to engage the runner's natural stability and a powerful push-off. Nav Band wraps over the instep and provides a comfortable, assured fit regardless of foot shape. Anatomical Last contours the foot to provide true support and a glove-like feel. Removable insole. Wt. 7.2 oz.

I love brooks, this is now my fourth pair, but first pair with a problem. I love the concept and feel of the new pureconnect and they performed very well. However, after my first 2 mile run (on paved surface) I noticed that 2 squares of tread had started peeling from the bottom of the right shoe. It is a brand new shoe, I had to order online to get a size 14, so I figure it could just be the first batch that had some weak glue or whatever. Regardless, I still intend to ride these shoes into the ground, tread or no tread. It's my first problem with a pair of brooks so I still have no intention of stopping now. All in all, a nice running shoe, but in the future I will wait a couple months before buying another new model.
Pros: lightweight, comfortable, good cushioning, breathable
Cons: peeling tread

Great to find a narrow running shoe. Many other brands are too wide for my feet therefore, they move around too much causing me to roll my ankles. Brooks Connect fit me perfectly. They are very light and I will be racing 5 to 42km races in these. I have also been training on some very rough mountain trails and they have caused me no issues at all.
I like the tread and they suit my forefoot striking style. Cheers
Pros: lightweight, comfortable, breathable, narrow
