The Brooks PureConnect ($90) is the new, ultra-lightweight, flexible running shoe by Brooks Sports. Designed for road running, The PureConnect balances between barefoot-inspired minimalism and cushioning-required training. Proven to reduce foot fatigue, the ‘split toe groove’ under the forefoot also offers a greater sense of connection to the ground. Plus, the PureConnect comes with BioMoGo, apparently the world’s first bio degradable midsole (I think we’ve heard that before).
The Brooks PureConnect is definitely an affordable choice for a running shoe this advanced. If you are looking for a good balance between minimalism and cushioning, this shoe is a smart choice. The PureConnect was recently awarded “Best Debut” by Runner’s World magazine.
