Brooks PureCadence 3 Sneak Peek

      2 Comments on Brooks PureCadence 3 Sneak Peek

The Brooks PureCadence has been one of the strongest sellers in the company’s Pure Project line. We think that has a lot to do with the fact that it fills a niche for runners who want a more stripped-down shoe but still need a touch of pronation support. Plus, the PureCadence has a really enjoyable underfoot feel.

The PureCadence 3 is the first entirely new version since the shoe’s original launch in winter of 2011. (The Purecadence 2 has a fresh upper but carries over the original platform.)  That said, as you can see the design still retains much from prior versions, both in terms of appearance and functionality. It’s a classic case of ‘if it ain’t broke,’ and we like the look of the subtle updates.

What to Watch For

  • More ‘Ideal’: The Ideal Heel has a slightly increased bevel, a change you’ll see across the PureProject line for 2014. The idea is to provide a more fluid transition for forward foot strikes.
  • Repositioned Split Toe: Instead of allowing just the big to to move independently, the new split toe design treats the first two toes as a unit. Another change coming for all updated Pure shoes.
  • Updated Nav Band: The band extending across the midfoot is wider and changes from fabric to silicone, providing a more consistent and secure fit.
  • Slightly Streamlined: The PureCadence 3 will have a slightly narrower last in the midfoot for a more streamlined fit. Again, this is change that will be introduced to many PureProject updates.
