The minimalist PureConnect road-running shoes from Brooks enhance your natural stride and help you feel connected to the terrain without sacrificing protection and shock absorption.

  • 4mm heel-to-toe drop encourages a shorter, lower-impact stride compared to 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, glove-like 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
  • Low-profile rubber outsoles on the Brooks PureConnect minimalist running shoes provide excellent grip on road, sidewalk and gentle trails
  • All-synthetic construction makes these vegan-friendly

Rated5out of5byfromGreat Shoe for MeI have worn minimalist shoes for around four years. I love them...but if I walk or run more than 5 miles I start getting hot spots on the ball of my foot. These shoes have just enough extra padding to prevent that from happening but not so much as to be a traditional running shoe. I still prefer the total minimalist shoe for daily wear, but this shoe is great for that little extra support when pounding on pavement or trails. I also find them very comfortable and fit perfectly.
