Brooks Women's PureConnect Running Shoe
Great shoes with modification
These shoes are very comfortable except they did give me blisters. I cut the top of the heels off and this got rid of the problem.

A Narrow Medium that feels Light and Supportive
This is about the avg price for this shoe and it is a minimalist shoe with good arch support. I have a very narrow foot and high arches and although I usually get a narrow width this shoe in medium fits my foot like a narrow Keds used to in the olden days..snug and supportive. I am 57 and the light weight shoe is easier on my joints in my work as a therapist every day. I ordered two pairs in turquoise or sea mist and get lots of compliments on them. Even in 9.5 they make my foot look small and do not shrink in the wash however I let them air dry.

Best running shoes ever
This was my first pair of Brooks. I could not believe how light they were, but they also have arch support. I had them for a year before I had to replace them, and I went online at Dick's and found the same pair, plus I bought the new pure-connect style as well. I can't imagine wearing any other shoe. I even washed them, probably 10 times, on the gentle cycle, and they came out fine.

Great Shoe Minus the Blisters
I love the shoe. I have wide feet and its a little snug but a good kind of snug. The insoles are so COMFY!!! But it does give my heel a blister :( Which I'm hoping the more I wear it will go away

This shoe has serious problems. Make sure the arch fits your foot perfectly or you will have major foot issues after wearing. I ran twice with these shoes and have had knee and foot problems that I am recovering from. After just 2 miles on the treadmill I jumped off and ripped the shoes off immediately. Be cautious about these shoes if you have a high arch or a high bridge on your foot

I'm trying to become more of an avid runner and thought that buying better sneakers would make it happen. I've heard great things about Brooks and came across these and the great reviews so I chose these. Wow! Went on my first run last night and couldn't be happier. I have very low arches and these are like walking/running on pillows!! I have purchased every sneaker and insert you can think of to help my arches and heels to not hurt and after my run, No pain! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great, Lightweight sneaker and a comfortable run. It really doesn't get any better than these. Believe me. And if they make Even ME run, they're even better !!

I am glad we Connect!
PureConnect are the best shoes ever. Brooks will try to improve them, but I don't think that is possible. I am sticking to this version. I know PureConnect 2 is out there, but I don't know if I am ready to try them. The first version seems perfect to me.

Runs Really Small
I was so excited to get this shoe because of the reviews in the running magazines. I had to return the shoe because it runs so small and narrow. I usually wear a size 6 1/2-7, but order a size 7 1/2 in a running shoe for the extra toe room. I heard they run small so I ordered a size 8. The size eight was still super small for me (cut off the circulation to my toes small), so I returned it and ordered a larger size. I am still waiting to see if the larger size will fit. The shoe is extremley light and seems very well made. It has great arch support and structure. I do not know if my overall rating is very accurate because I have not had an opportunity to run in them.
