With an identical midsole and outsole design to its predecessor, the Brooks PureCadence 7 should be a go-to for runners who want a natural feel that still provides mild stability for overpronation. The primary change to the model is a new upper design that should create a sock-like feel.
As is the case for the PureCadence 6, the PureCadence 7 incorporates a BioMoGo DNA midsole that should deliver a softer landing at slower paces and a more responsive feel at faster paces. It also features lightweight guide rails to provide stability for mild overpronation.
In order to improve the fit and comfort of the shoe, designers created a new Air Woven upper with an internal bootie that should deliver a soft hold for unrestricted motion. The no-sew overlays provide added structure without irritating seams.
The alterations in the upper design do come at a slight cost though, as the men’s PureCadence 7 weighs 0.4 ounces more than its predecessor, and the women’s model weighs 0.1 ounces more.
