Brooks Pure Project Shoes–Giveaway

Happy Thursday! I got a full 8 hours of sleep last night and am feeling good! After making Ben a super quick breakfast I ran out the door and did 6 miles. They were supposed to be tempo but with the uphill out / downhill back it went: w/u; 8:38; 8:55; 8:06; 8:38; c/d. I’m not a fan of hills, but it’s good that I get used to them for New York!

I was able to keep up the pace despite the uphill out thanks to my magic shoes aka my new Brooks Pure Flows. IMG 6085 600x800 thumb Brooks Pure Project Shoes–Giveaway

The kind souls at Brooks also sent me the PureConnect Shoes. Um, these just blow my mind. I haven’t worn them for a whole run yet, just around the house but I am loving the way they wrap my foot and feel so light. IMG 6094 800x600 thumb Brooks Pure Project Shoes–Giveaway

Comments

  1. says

    Pure grit shoes would be fab!! I love running along the lakefront in chicago (which by no means is a trail run…) but i would feel like a bada** wearing them…!!

  2. Jean says

    I have reading about these shoes everywhere. I would have to pick the pure cadence since I have read they are really good for someone who overpronates. I hope to be able to get my hands on a pair sooner (than later)

  3. says

    I love Brooks, but haven’t had the money/guts to branch out to a new shoe. I would for sure take the Pure Flow out for a spin, though!

  4. Jolene says

    Oh my goodness, me please! My NewBalance got fairly destroyed during Color Me Rad 5K this past weekend and it’s time for them to go. I was just looking at the Pure Project today!

    Pure Cadence are the ones for me!

  5. says

    DEFINITELY the Pure Cadence! I have been DYING to try those on. They are the ‘stability’ shoe of the bunch and I have really been wanting to get into a much, much lighter stability shoe. What a fabulous giveaway! Thanks, Monica!

  6. Lisa says

    I would love the Pure Flow as an option between my regular Asics and Vibrams. (I also heard they come in bright pink, which is fantastic!) Thanks for the great giveaway!

  7. Michelle says

    I would love to try the Pure Cadence because of the reinforced heel. Plus I just absolutely LOVE the neon green color!!!

  8. Jen says

    I want to try to the Pure Cadence so hard. Why must running shoes be so expensive! I cannot keep my nut butter addiction up and buy new shoes!

  9. Amanda O says

    I would love to try out the pure cadence! That green color is really cool too! I’m not usually bold but I think it would be fun to try a wild color! Maybe it would make me run faster! ha!

  10. Lexi says

    Im gonna choose the Pure Connect!

    Man, I’d love love love to try these out!! I need a pair of running shoes anyway :( Mine are kicking the bucket.

  11. Cate says

    I have the pure flows and love them. I’d live a pair of the pure grit because I’ve been wanting to get into trail running!

  12. Christina S. says

    I’ve really been wanting a pair of these! I would pick the Pure Cadence. I love the color options, too.

  13. Monica says

    Pure connect. I’ve always been hesitant to try lightweight shoes, but I know Brooks knows running shoes.

  14. Andrea says

    Pure Connect! Mainly because of how you described them! They sound awesome! (I was going to make the “empowered big toe” joke but someone beat me to it! Boo!)

  15. Dana B. says

    I have super flat feet and two big toes and I run like a T-Rex. I’d love to try the Pure Flow. The Pure looks sweet and the colors are awesome!
    :-)

  16. Alison Elizabeth says

    The PureFlows have my name all over them. I’ve tried them on and been debating buying them already!

  17. Kaitlyn Walker says

    I would definitely go with the PureConnect — once I went to a lighter shoe, it felt like wearing bricks on my feet when I put my normal shoes back on. Would love to give these a try!

  18. lanie says

    I would pick the PURE FLEX because I love that the shoes look out for the big toe (Wide Toe Flex empowers big toe)

  19. meghan says

    i think i’d pick the pure connect. light weight shoes are the best!! i’ve been wanting to try brooks new minimalist line

  20. Bridget says

    I love me some new running shoes! All the Brooks Pure Project shoes look fabulous, I’m a minimalist shoe girl but tend to have some big toe stick-outage (if that’s a word) so I would much enjoy the Pure Flow.

  21. Bryanna says

    oh tough choice! it’s between the pure grit and the pure flow…. probably the grit since I don’t have a pair of trail specific shoes!

  22. Melissa says

    I would totally go for the Pure Grit! I really would like to start running trails with my dog so I think they would be perfect!!

  23. Stephanie says

    PureFlow 100%. It seems like a great shoe to provide some support and ease myself into barefoot running. And the color is fantastic.

  24. Tina Scott says

    I am definitely all about the reinforced heel and “natural guiding” that the Pure Cadence has to offer! Maybe they’ll help me run faster in my training for my first 10K?? AND… it’s time for me to buy some new running shoes anyway ;)

    p.s. I’m a new reader of your blog, and I love it! Thanks for all the daily motivation and laughs :)

  25. Krystal says

    I would love to try the Pure Cadence. I just found out that I’m an over pronater so these would be perfect!

  26. Sam says

    Brooks PureConnect for SURE. I run middle-distance track and do a lot of speed workouts, but I can’t always get to a track and use my spikes, so I’m always looking for a light, flexible shoe for use on the roads.

  27. Melissa McD. says

    Such a great giveaway!! I love the color of the Pure Cadence, but since I need a little extra toe room, I’d choose the Pure Flow. Pick me! Pick me!

  28. lou-anne says

    pure flow or pure grit. I’m horrible at making decisions. Pure Flow would be great for the cushioning but Pure Grit would work well with the LI Summer Run Series I’ve been running which has us hitting the trails.

  29. says

    Ohhh so many choices?!?! I think I’d go for the Pure Cadence. Not only do I have a need for speed, but also, I have a need to get and wear as many 80′s electric green pieces of clothing at once. Because that would be hot.

  30. Phebe says

    I would pick the pure connects. My current shoes are on their last legs and I would love to transition to a more minimalist shoe!

  31. Suzanne says

    I’d probably pick the Pure Cadence. I want to use a lighter shoe, but I need a little bit more support for my stupid overpronation.

  32. Leah says

    My boyfriend has the flows and loves them, and I’ve read great reviews about them so I’m going with the flows. I’ve run through 8 pairs of Brooks Adrenalines in the past 6 years but maybe it’s time for a change. Of shoe, not brand, love my Brooks!!!

  33. Samantha B. says

    I would choose the Pure Cadence! I like that they have a reinforced heel, but are still light. I would love the chance to try out Brooks! I have only bought Mizuno brand running shoes, but I have been anxious to try Brooks. Thanks for this giveaway!

  34. says

    I would love the pure connect! I still consider myself a “new” runner since I’ve only been at it for about 1.5 years, and I’m constantly trying to find a shoe to fall in love with. Thanks for your motivation!

  35. says

    I would choose the Pure Cadence in PINK!!! Why can they not have these beautiful colors in the Adrenalines?! HINT HINT BROOKS!

  36. katie says

    The pure cadence look awesome! I am dying to try Brooks shoes but don’t have the budget for them quite yet!

  37. laura says

    Hi! I would choose the pure grit, have recently started doing more trail running and do not have a pair of trail running shoes yet!

  38. Shelby says

    I would pick the brooks pure flow since i had a stress fracture in my left big toes, which caused my toes to look like a have a bunion :( it is difficult for me to fine a shoes that fits my toes width wise and these seem like the perfect fit!

  39. Elizabeth says

    I would pick pure cadence. I am just planning to go this weekend to get fitted for my first real pair of running shoes. Super exciting!!

  40. Colleen says

    Pure Flows! Definitely want to transition to a lightweight shoe, but I still need a little cushion. Love the black-and-blue combo, too!

  41. Melissa Kohler says

    Definitely the Pure Cadence. The colors remind me of Super Hero colors. I could see me “Super Hero flying” past the competition =)

  42. Jenn Downey says

    I think I’d pick the Pure Flow! I’ve tried several brands of shoe and Brooks has been by far my favorite

  43. Steph says

    hey monica,
    I own the pure connect and love them… I would love to get my paws on a pair of pure grit because i run on the road caz i have to but i am a BMW ( burly mountain women) at heart

  44. Caitlin C says

    I would love the neon green Pure Connect! If I don’t win, I’m definitely adding these to my wish list!

  45. Nikki says

    Either the pure connect or pure flow. But they all seem pretty rad. I’ve seen these popping up all over the blog world and I’m dying to try a pair!

  46. Jen says

    Ah, great giveaway! I really want a pair of these shoes! I think I’d go with the Pure Cadence to give my pronating feet the support they need while going lightweight.

  47. Jen E. says

    Pure Connect! I have a pair of the lowest profile barefoot inspired Nike shoes right now and I love them but it’s about time for a new pair of shoes and I’d love to try Brooks.

  48. Andrea A. says

    I love my Brooks Adrenaline that I run on now, but I would LOVE the chance to try a pair of the Pure Grit – a perfect option to start hitting the trails this fall!

  49. ashley says

    I think I’d try the Pure Flow. I have been wanting to give these kind of a shoes a try, and this would be the perfect way!

  50. Nikki Higgins says

    Pure Flow I would love to try these out. My family and I are on a very tight budget, so I always buy my shoes off of the clearance rack.

  51. Missy says

    I’d love to try the Pure Cadence. I run in VFF right now and would like to try something with just a little cushioning.

  52. Angie says

    I have a pair of Brooks Adrenalines that are way past retirement, so I’d love to win! The Pure Cadence seems like a good fit for me.

  53. Stacy says

    Would love to try the Pure Cadence. Have worn Asics for the last 10 years and keep saying I’m going to give Brooks a try.

  54. Christina says

    I want them all but especially pure cadence! I’ve been seeing ads for them in runner’s world for months now and drooling over them…very effective ad placement :)

  55. Christa says

    I would looove to try the pure cadence shoes they sound perfect! a friend of mine wears them & adores them!

  56. Tina says

    I would love to try the Pure Flow – I need the cushioning for planter’s! The Run Happy theme is one of my favorite slogans.

  57. Meg says

    I would totes pick the Pure Flow….I really like the strap around the top of your foot and the breathable mesh…good for my sweaty toes… :P

  58. Leah says

    I would pick the pure connects because I love a light weight shoe and the flexible toe room allows me to keep my toes up and heel strike easily

  59. NG says

    I’m super interested in minimalist running, but not sure how to start. It would be awesome to win the Pure Cadence – I think that’s the one for over-pronation. Thanks to you and Brooks for offering this giveaway!

  60. Kerstin says

    Funny. This morning I finally decided I wanted to try the minimalist running shoes. I went to the store but they did not have my size or the color I was looking for.
    I would totally go for Pure Cadence. Awesome colors.

  61. Elizabeth says

    Wow – I don’t know how to pick just 1! they all sound amazing! I guess I’d have to go with the Pure Flow.

  62. Marissa says

    I’d love to try the Pure Cadence. I need a stability shoe and have wanted to try the lightweight style for a while!

  63. Maura G says

    I’d love the Pure Connect! After almost a year of not running, I really want to get back into the game, and these shoes would be perfect to get me going! :)

  64. Jodi says

    I would go with the Brooks Pure Flow. I have wanted to try a pair and I am loving all the new Brooks Colors!!

  65. says

    I just ran a marathon in the Pure Flows and set a PR and qualified for Boston! Needless to say, I love these shoes. I also own the Pure Connects that I do speed work in. I need a new pair of the Flows to start my NYC training, so this would be great to win them!

  66. Hannah says

    I would choose the Pure Flow shoes. I need a pair of shoes that are light but also provide decent support.

  67. says

    I need new running shoes in the worst way. I’ve wanted to try Brooks for awhile. I like the Pure Flow and Pure Cadence. I think either would work for my running needs.

  68. dana says

    Pure Flow for sure! said its got wide toe flex… and ive got me a real big toe (just call me Fred Flintstone!) so i need it!!!

  69. says

    LUV all the cool colors!!! How to choose my favorite? I guess I’d have go with the Pure Flow because I have one big toe/bunion that tends to like to break out of my shoes! Pick ME Monica!

  70. Elizabeth R says

    I didn’t even have to read the descriptions because I have been hard core lusting after Brooks Cadence for awhile now. The pink ones… Yum!

  71. Hayley O says

    I would get Pure Flow! The flow would remind me that yoga will help me with my running everytime I wear them (I tend to forget about yoga and how good it would be for me). And I would use them to achieve my Diet Bet with SarahFit!

  72. Marija says

    love the Pure Connect..I’ve found the lighter the shoes, the more comfy they are and can lead to some pretty long runs!

  73. Meredith says

    I think the Pure Flows would be cool! They look awesome too & you cant go wrong with what Runnersworld says!

  74. Jennifer H. says

    I would definitely choose the Pure Cadence. I tested out a pair of them at my LRS and fell in love!

  75. Morgen Elaine says

    Hey Monica! I’m on mile 2309823098230298 with my current shoes and would LOVE a pair of the Pure Connects :)

  76. Annie says

    I’d have to go with the PureCadence, since (a) I love me some lime and (b) more importantly, I have the flattest, most overpronating feet on the planet and that’s the stability shoe of their newest line!

  77. Beth B says

    In my experience any Brooks shoe is great. The Pure Connects sound like a great way to get into a lighter shoe w/o going the full barefoot running route. Thanks to you and Brooks for the giveaway!

  78. Robin Waters says

    I have been dying to try to Brooks PureConnect shoes. Would love to try the Pure Flow. Ready to try minimalist shoes, but want to keep some cushion in the shoes. I’m training for the Marine Corps Marathon and would love to use these on my short runs.

    Thanks!
    Robin Waters

  79. JoLynn says

    I have been eyeing the Pure Connects for a few months now so they would definitely but the ones I would like to try.

  80. jennifer says

    I would pick the pure cadence…I have the pure flows and love them for running on the trail around the lake.

  81. lauren says

    I love the look of the entire line! But its a toss up between the Pure Flow and their Trail version, I really want to start some trail runing SOON so they would ROCK!

  82. Alicia says

    Oooooooooo! I have a pair of the Pure Cadence and LOVE them so I would love to try the Pure Flow or maybe the Pure Connect next! Brooks are the BEST!

  83. Katie says

    I would like to try the pure flows! I have the Saucony Kinvara 3′s and I LOVE them even though I have always been a brooks loyalist. I am interested to try their pure project line!

  84. Carol Landry says

    I need a shoe with a wide toe box, so I’m guessing I’d choose the Flow. They all look awesome!

  85. Janelle says

    I would pick the pure connect. I love light weight and a tight but comfy fit on your foot! Thanks for the opportunity!

  86. Eva says

    I’d go with Pure Flow — I need the cushioning. I’m a beginning runner and am up to 2 miles and have reduced my time from over 14 mins a mile to right about 12.

  87. Tom says

    I would definitely choose the Pure Connect. I have been trying to find a lightweight pair of running shoes that I like since the beginning of summer and have had no luck. I’ve been using a lightweight pair of Puma soccer cross-trainers but they’re on their last legs (no pun intended.)

    I just bought an iPhone too so now I have a running app to track my runs and progress! I think I’m going to register for my first half-marathon in the fall so I need to start figuring out my pace. Really excited to get running this weekend. Now only if I had a new pair of great Brooks shoes to make it even better. Hint, hint.

  88. says

    I’d probably pick the Pure Grit as I’m in need of a trail shoe right now. Running shoes just aren’t cutting it for hiking and trail runs!

  89. Lauren says

    The Pure Cadence look great! I’ve been looking for a nice lightweight shoe, and these definitely fit the bill. Plus… who doesn’t love green!?

  90. Abby says

    I would pick the Pure Connect. I only buy Brooks shoes. They fit me best and last longer than other brands.

  91. KK says

    Ooooh, I’m torn between the PureFlows and the PureConnects – I really want to try the whole lightweight running thing, but my knees don’t do well without cushioning. Maybe I’d try the PureFlows considering they’d be bonus sneaks!

  92. Lara says

    Pure Cadence all the way. I love the bright colors! They are very fun… And fun shoes make you run better. Fact.

  93. Kassidy says

    I would want pureflow, it seems like the right balance between having enough cushion while being lightweight.

  94. Amarra says

    I would like the Pure Cadence. I am an Emergency Nurse and need a bit of support because I am always on my feet! :)

  95. Kelly says

    I’m feeling the PureFlows. I run in the Defyance and sometimes Ravenna, so it seems like the perfect thing to throw in the mix.

  96. Rebecca says

    I would choose the Pure Grit. I run often on pavement but just as often on trails. My current shoe is a trail shoe and I love it for all runs so I think I’ll stick with trail shoes :-)

  97. says

    I would love a pair of the Pure Cadence. I have tried them on a few times and almost bought them when I went shopping for a new pair of sneakers, but I had already bought a new pair of trail shoes (albeit on a deep clearance) and couldn’t justify to my husband 3 new pairs of sneakers in 1 months time.

  98. Ally says

    I’d love the Pure Grit shoes! I’m a new trail runner and my old sneaks just aren’t working well for the terrain.

  99. says

    I have been wearing Brooks ever since my first half marathon in 2004. They are awesome. I would pick the Pure Flow, since it’s supposed to lock the foot in. That’d be great so I could get a little more stability!

  100. Tiffany says

    I would definitely pick the Pure Cadence! Who doesnt feel badass in a pair of lime green shoes!? My lime green and silver Brooks Ghosts are about done for anyhoo so this would be perfect timing!

  101. Genevieve says

    All of the new Brooks shoes sound great. I really got into running this year after joining the Navy and think the Pure Connects would be a dream to run in!

  102. leah K says

    OMG with all this training for the marathon I would love to try brooks pure cadance! Anything to keep things different and fun right! Plus i already run in Brooks- they are all I wear!!

  103. Gabrielle Kelly says

    I would love the Pure Cadence shoes because I have two different size feet and that seems like an exceptionally stable shoe. I have been running for years and have yet to find a great match!

  104. Bridget says

    Pure connect! I’ve been dying to try a lighter running shoe and have heard amazing things about these ones!

  105. Pete says

    Pure Flow would be my choice. I need a little cushioning for the high mileage I do, but want a lighter shoe too.

  106. Margaret says

    I would love to try the Pure Connect because I’ve been looking for a lightweight shoe to rock out some summer long runs.

  107. says

    I would love the chance to win a pair of the PureConnect shoes! I tried them on last month and love the way they hug my feet! Still looking for the perfect running shoe.

  108. Michele says

    I would pick the Pure Cadence. I’m still pretty new to running and, of course, had to learn the hard way about having the right seakers. :)

  109. Jamie says

    I’d love to try the Pure Connect, I’ve been wanting to give the whole minimalist running thing a shot.

  110. Meghann says

    I would love the Pure Candance shoes! They totally match my purple and lime 1/2 marathon outfit. The motto for my upcoming half is”Will Rum for Run” Plus, I really need a new pair of running shoes :)

  111. Laurel Groff says

    Flow or connect. They don’t specify neutral or not, but my assumption is these two are the most neutral.

  112. Anna says

    I would pick the Pure Cadence – I love the color, and the description looks like it would be the perfect shoe for me to try out!

  113. Amanda N says

    I think I’d go with the PureConnect. The shoes I have now are supposed to be an in-between shoe (as in in-between cushioned and minimalist) so they would probably be similar to the PureFlow. Also, I’d love to actually try out the true minimalist shoe and feel!

  114. Sierra says

    I’d love to try the Pure Cadence or Pure Grit. I’m new to running and never worn Brooks shoes before, but I hear great things!

  115. says

    I’d love to try the Pure Connect. I have had Brooks Adrenaline for years and I love them, but am always looking for something new. Right now I’m wearing New Balance 890, and will probably go back to Brooks again when it’s time for a change up.

  116. says

    I’d go with the Pure Connect! I hope I win, I could use a little extra motivation in a few months after I deliver this baby and get cleared for running again.

  117. Ashley Smith says

    I would totally pick True Grit! they are badass! and the fact that they are also made for trail runs makes them even more awesome!!

  118. Ilana says

    I am a loyal Brooks girl and would LOVE to try the new Pure line! I think the Cadence would be for me – others would be green with envy :)

  119. Erin says

    I’d choose the Pure Flow ’cause I gots to have some cushion for the pushing… er… I mean for the running.

  120. Heather says

    I’d pick the Pure Flow, because I need a neutral show with some support, which I think from the description these may have.

  121. Erica says

    Ahh!! I need to win these!! I love Brooks and need new running shoes, but sadly they aren’t in the budget right now. I would love love love to have those Pure Cadence! Thanks for having such an awesome giveaway :)

  122. Meredith says

    I would love to try the PureGrit! I’ve been doing a lot of hiking lately and I think I would really enjoy trail running .. a pair of these would definitely motivate me to get going!

  123. Anita H. says

    Eeny, meeny, miney, moe. Orange, blue, green or gold? Well that may be yellow. In my perfect fantasy world I would have one of each lined up in my closet and I would wear a different pair every run so they would all wear evenly and all my outfits would be color coordinated and….Oops, I’m getting carried away. I guess if I had to choose, it would be the True Grit. Love, love, love LOVE them all though. Just sayin’. ;)

  124. April says

    I would go with the Pure Flows…You said that it helped you get up hills and anything that helps conquer hills is worth having!!

  125. Heather Haddon says

    O my gosh Monica!
    I would love, love to have a pair of the Pure flow shoes!
    I love the way the look and feel, I have tried them on multiple times while out shopping, I just cant bring my self to actually purchase them yet..they are my dream shoes!
    Thanks for the chance to win a pair…

  126. Heather says

    I would choose the Brooks Pure Cadence – and there is a very important reason why . . .I am training for a 5k with my 13 year old son and I might ACTUALLY score some points with him if I had cool running shoes. With a 13 year old there isn’t really anything cool about me these days – even though i was his lifeline and best buddy a minute ago. Those green (shrek-like) Brooks would look pretty hot on a 46 year old mom! Don’t you think??

  127. Evelyn says

    Um… I think it might be shallow of me to base my choice on color but I’d have to go with the GREEN ones! So there!

  128. Lauren E. says

    It would be a toss-up between the Pure Connect and Pure Flow, but I think the Pure Flow would be best for me!

  129. jayloh says

    I am infatuated with these shoes. I have a pair of Pure Flows that I need to start transitioning out (miles and miles on them!). A new pair of those would be *awesome*

  130. Leigh says

    Pure Cadence or Pure Grit! I need to start taking advantage of the trails near me…perhaps they would be motivating? :)

  131. Cait says

    Hey Monica! I never comment on here, but I check your blog daily and figure…what the heck? This is a good enough excuse to start! I love the PureFlow (and I also love your blog. Thanks for all the inspiration and entertainment!)

  132. Becky says

    I’d pick the Pure Cadence for sure!! They all look like great shoes! Who couldn’t use a new pair of running shoes!? :)

  133. Veronica says

    I have been looking for a lighter running shoe! I trust your review and would like to try the Pure Flow

  134. says

    Either the connect or the flow. I have racers now, and I love how lightweight they are, but they top out at 10k or 10 miles if I’m pushing it, so I’d either want something to replace those for short workouts (the connect) or try the flow and see if I could use them for longer runs.

    LOVE THE COLORS! I always drool over mens shoes because women’s are all pink and light blue and white and crap. I want all these on my feet! :)

    I would love to win these shoes, especially the Pure Flow ones! I am continuing to get running injuries, I think it’s time to try some more minimalist shoes!

  136. Christi says

    I have been wanting to try Brooks for a long time but they are a little out of my price range. I would love to pick the Pure Flow since they sound like they would be good for my wide toes. :) Plus I am always looking for a truly light running shoe.

  137. Kimberly says

    I would love to try the Brooks Pure Connect! I’m on my 3rd pair of Brooks Ghost but it would be fun to try something new! Thanks!

  138. Vickie says

    I would choose either the pure flow or pure cadence. If I had based my choice on color I would have chosen all of them. Love the bright colors! I’m not one for blending in with the crowd.

  139. Tanya says

    I would pick the Pure Flow. I love the blue, and it sounds like a great shoe. Brooks shoes are the best!!!!

  140. Kandis says

    I’ve seen these all over lately and hear great things. I’d looove to give them a try. I think I’d probably pick the Pure Flow.

  141. Kim says

    Would love to try out the pure cadence! Have been eyeing these for awhile but have yet to pull the trigger. Thanks!

  142. Kelsea says

    Would pick the green pure cadence – the word “breezy” in the description makes them sound fun/interesting :)

  143. Charliss says

    whoa those shoes all look so snazzy! I’d love to win a pair of the Pure Flow. So many bright colors!

  144. Stacy says

    Wow! 609 comments! So my chances of winning are 1/609. Been reading your blog religiously for about a year, but this is my first comment! I have always wanted to try Brooks running shoes, but get Nike discounts, so can never justify the added expense. However, my most recent round of Nikes are killing my feet and I’m ready to make the switch! I would probably go for the Pure Cadence. Thanks, Monica!

  145. Marymo says

    I’d get the pure cadence! The reinforced heel may keep the bottoms of my feet from getting so sore!!

  146. Amanda says

    Wow those look awesome but I’m not sure which I would pick. I like light weight stability performance shoes. I am wearing ASICs gel ds trainers right now and love them. I would probably say the pure flow or the trail shoe.

    You blog is the first running blog I ever found. I found it about a month ago on the runners world forums when someone saidUFOu were there favorite blog. I never even knew all these great running logs were out there. You have been a great motivator and you turned me on to my other fav new blogs, skinny runner and hungry runner girl. If you ever come down to San Diego/Mission Beach lets go for a run!

  147. Mendy says

    Pure Flow!!! ….b/c I embody some of the traits: “wide”, “cushioning”. And the whole “empower your big toe” sounds super fun and I want to tell people how my big toe fought oppression. And won.

  148. John says

    Pure Connect, by far! I run in Nike Free Run+ 3.0 and I’ve been wavering on whether or not to make the switch to Brooks. These seem like the logical move, should I choose to jump from Mr. Knight and the Swoosh.

  149. Tiffany Tipton says

    I would LOVE a pair of Pure Flow or Pure Connect. I love Brooks shoes, they are the only running shoe I will wear!

  150. Mallory says

    I would LOVE to try the Pure Flow shoes! I read your blOg everyday without fail-you are my inspiration!!!

  151. Amanda says

    Pure flow…. I drool every time I see these in stores. I think my fiance will lose his mind if I come home with more shoes ; )

  152. Emily B says

    I would pick the Pure Connect. I have a pair of Brooks trail running shoes and I love them! They are perfect for running on the trails behind my house.

  153. says

    I’m recovering from a hamstring strain and would LOVE to have a pair of Pure Flow shoes to keep my spirits up! I’ve been super bummed not being able to run these past few weeks, but I know that if I had a pair of these shoes, I wold be highly motivated to keep training for my first half marathon in October :) Fingers crossed this injury only keeps me out another week and a half at most! Its driving me CRAZY!!!!!!!

  154. Hillary says

    Me me me! I’d take the True Grit as I have been wanting to get back into trail running for a little while now but just haven’t invested the time or money to pick up a pair of trail runners. This would stop the excuses!

  155. Amy D says

    Wow…like a kid in a candy store! Just got back into running two months ago and am hooked again. Finished my first race last weekend under my imaginary PR (that’s when it’s been so long since one has run the same race that she cannot remember what her last time was….Ha!)! I like the Brooks Pure Flow…..fingers and toes crossed!

  156. Anna Akin says

    I would probably choose the pureconnect. It would be a tough call but I would love to try a light pair of shoes for a change.

  157. Sage says

    I would love the Pure Flow! My best pair of running shoes are Brooks so any shoe by them is fine by me!

  158. says

    I would love to try the Flows. I really think I need different shoes, but who can afford to try out so many to get the right ones?

  159. Ina says

    I would surely go with Pure Cadence!
    definition of cadence: Balanced, rhythmic flow
    Exactly what I would love to achieve with an excellent shoe!

  160. Lindsay Boggan says

    Love them all. I would pick pure flow or pure connect! I would LOVE A pair for my marathon training!!

  161. heatherfeather says

    Brooks shoes? Yes, please! I am a big fan, already. Of these 3, I’d love to try the Cadence shoe.

  162. Leslie says

    Pure Flow would be my choice. Would love to try them out. I just know I would run like the wind with them on my feet.

  163. Lindsey says

    For anyone wishing for the Pure Connects-I’m in pain & having an issue with the Pure Connects I got about a week ago. The right shoe fits great- I love it!- light and snug, just like it says. The left shoe gives me blisters on the back outside corner of my heel and there’s a weird piece near my Achilles that is poking me there. It feels almost like metal?! When comparing left to right, it feels like left shoe is missing some cushioning in that spot- I can’t feel it on the right shoe. :(

    I would really like a new pair – or at least a new left shoe!

  164. Emily says

    pure flows, please! I have been in brooks ghost4s forever (and love them), but really want to have the chance to fall in love with flows. I had them, but had to exchange back for ghost5s when I had a race coming up and was scared to try the flows out at longer distance. I wanna give them another whirl!

  165. says

    I’d probably choose the pure flow shoes. I need room for my big toes. ;) I actually have size 10 feet. Its hard finding a really good pair of shoes. Especially feet that are wide.

  166. says

    I’ve never tried Brooks shoes before but I have always wanted to! I don’t know which ones I’d choose…they all look awesome!

  167. Charlotte says

    I’d definitely have to go for the Pure Flows- they look like they’d work for my oddly shaped feet and lazy pace ;)

  168. Marjorie says

    Im a beginning runner and yet to invest in a good pair of shoes for the summer. The Brooks Cadence would be my first choice. New running shoes would be great motivation to get my but out the door and run!

  169. Amy says

    I would love to try the Pure Connects! I am a big fan of Brooks shoes and my husband bought the pure connects about a month ago and he loves them! Now I must get my own pair!

  170. Denise P. says

    Gotta be Pure Cadence for me (of course the most expensive one), cause I need a little support. ;)

    I loveeee me my Brooks, but I just haven’t been able to shell out the money for something from the Pure Project. If I don’t win any of these blogger giveaways I think I’ll have to save up and make them my next purchase.

  171. Casey says

    I’ve been obsessed with the pure cadence shoes since my friend bought them and described them as pure heaven. I had no idea they were stability shoes so now I’m saving my pennies for ‘em!!
