Embrace the nuances of off-road terrain while staying firmly on your feet thanks to the minimalist design and great traction of the Brooks PureGrit trail-running shoes.

  • 4mm heel-to-toe drop encourages a shorter, lower-impact stride than traditional running shoes
  • Inverted heel technology encourages a midfoot landing position rather than a heel strike
  • Lightweight uppers feature highly breathable polyester mesh; rubber instep band on each shoe hugs the foot for a secure, glovelike fit.
  • Midsoles feature BioMoGo polymer alloy foam to enhance energy return and reduce foot fatigue; nontoxic additive helps midsoles break down in landfill
  • Split toe groove under the forefoot offers a greater sense of connection to the ground compared to traditional running shoes
  • Developed in collaboration with ultrarunner Scott Jurek, unique rubber outsoles feature a wide base and tire-like treads for a stable ride on the trails
  • All-synthetic construction makes these vegan-friendly

Brooks PureGrit Trail-Running Shoes - Men's - 2012 Closeoutis rated4.0out of5by3.
Rated5out of5byfromSmoooth!very smooth transition, low profile with good response, wide with lots of toe room, could be even a little more minimalist-maybe but its a trail shoe. My favorite go anywhere runner.

Rated4out of5byfromGood value, but beware of the color!Here's the thing: the picture makes these shoes look yellow, but in reality, they are YELLOW!!! So, if you're cool with road-construction neon yellow on your feet, these are a great deal. I don't use them for trail running because, well, I'm not a trail runner. However, the tread doesn't really seem aggressive enough for anything but the most packed-down trails. That said, they're lightweight, breathable and supportive. I could definitely see using these for through-hiking/ultralight trips.

Rated3out of5byfromGood Light shoeI like these shoes so far. They are really light and feel fun and responsive to run in. Time will tell if they can last for any duration of time. Very fun on trail runs if you are looking to tread lightly. If you like a more supportive shoe this would be a bad purchase.
