by RunHappy! Best upgrade I have ever made!
I have always loved the Nike Free running shoes but the one thing I disliked the most about them is how quickly they wore. I finally gave in and decided to try out a new shoe and have loved the PureConnect ever since! I just bought my third paid and have yet to have a complaint. They are quick to break in and are snug enough around my foot to provide support. I do a lot of long distance running and marathon training and these keep my feet comfortable during those 12-20 mile runs.

I wanted the Pure Connect 2 in blue because they were $59.99 but they did not have my size so had to pay $79.99 for these. Received them within a week but they had been worn previously. I'm not a happy customer. Love the prior Connect 2 I had but not happy with Dick's online purchase of used shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Running G-Grandma Pure Connect Pure Pleasure
This is my fourth pair of Brooks Pure Connect. I am 62 years old and have been running since my mid 20's. I have run 390 miles in the last 4 months. I only tell you this so you know I am really using these shoes. My long run for the last three weeks was 18 miles and Pure Connect has been pure pleasure. This is the first time in my running life that all ten of my toenails are still perfect and on my toes. I had come to expect that around the time my training reached the twelve mile mark, it was normal for my toenails start to turn black and fall off. Not so since I have been wearing Brooks!Even more important, I no longer feel as if I am fighting my shoes. Somewhere in the very distant past, someone told me I needed a stabilizing shoe. I have started to refer to those shoes of my past as the Frankenstein Shoes because that is how I felt when I was running in them. The Brooks shoe moves with me not against me and I love them. I am a very slow runner and getting slower all the time, LOL, but Brooks Pure Connect definitely help me feel less like a plodding old cow. I live in Arizona and the Brooks are light and cool.The only negative thing I can say is I wasn't really crazy about the way they laced kind of at the side. I am used to that now and it doesn't matter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Brandy Great fit, terrible wear
I ordered these online through the store. My first shipment arrived dirty and used. The sole had black marks and there was visible wear on the tread. The second pair arrived in a similar fashion. Receiving two different dirty and previously worn used pairs tipped me off that these weren't worth the money. I was disappointed as they really hugged my feet well! But the tread seems cheap and "styrofoamy"

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debs Very true
I'm a size 7 but I had to get these in a size 8. They feel terrific when walking. I ordered the size 7.5 but my toes still felt snug. They run a little smaller than the pure connect 3.

I usually have a hard time finding shoes that fit properly. I have a narrow foot with a high arch. These shoes fit like a glove! Although they run a bit short (I usually wear an 8 and bought the 8 1/2) the arch is high enough to give my foot great support. They are flexible and very easy to walk in. I can wear them all day and still be comfortable!

I tried on every pair of woman's running shoes at Dick's and these were by far the most attractive AND comfy! they were much cheaper than many of the other ones too! I wear them all the time and are the most comfy shoes I have ever worn, I would definitely recommend this to anyone, for any use!
