Brooks PureConnect 3 Sneak Peek

August 28th, 2013


Of all the shoes in the PureProject line, the PureConnect has been a favorite among RW staffers. It offers a responsive ride but still gives you a good amount of protection thanks to full-length BioMoGo DNA midsole. We also like the close-to-foot, performance-oriented fit of the upper. The PureConnect 3 keeps the formula the same with just a few key updates.

What to Watch For

  • All-New Design: The PureConnect 3 is the first full update – upper and platform – since the launch of this shoe.
  • Increased Heel Bevel: The Ideal Heel is more rounded in an effort 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.
  • 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 Modified Fit: The PureConnect 3 will have a slightly narrower last in the midfoot for a more streamlined fit, while the toe box is opened up just a bit with greater depth for a more generous fit up front.

    What change to the outsole is being made to the Connect3?

    Wow! Cool design, sleek and sharp. The price isn’t too bad either! Excited for December

  • Matt

    Good question. Looks like there will be a bit more blown rubber used in key wear zones, particularly in the heel and the tip of the toe.

  • Michael

    Thanks, Matt. Hopefully, Brooks is able to do that without adding significant weight. The toe area is primarily where I’d want to see more durability.@Matt

    Brooks is saying the PureConnect 3 will be just a couple tenths of an ounce heavier than the current model.
