Brooks PureFlow 3 Review
The responsiveness, cushion, and security make these running shoes loved by runners. The PureFlow 3 is exactly a fused version of the PureFLow series. Moreover, it maintained all the valuable features.
The main drawback of the PureFLow 3 is its durability. Although the rubber pods are promised to be sturdier, the pods break when the shoes reached its 500 mile mark. Additionally, the cushion can break down and soften when the shoes reached the 500 mile mark: which is common for its category.
Many athletes fell in love with the PureFlow series, and the PureFlow 3 is a fantastic update to its predecessors. The PureFlow 3 is an overhaul to the previous models. The updates include the features of the upper and sole unit. Additionally, these running shoes are lighter and narrower. This Brooks PureFlow 3 review provides detailed information about the shoes’ aesthetics, pros, and cons.
The PureFlow 3 weighs 192 grams for half a pair. These running shoes come in different colors, available colors include black, blue, and red. The toe box of PureFLow 3 is narrower than the previous models. Furthermore, the toe box takes in the first two toes. The tread has been significantly redesigned, and the patterns have more dimensions and are now oval. Moreover, the patterns are made of a sturdy rubber material to ensure long-lasting durability. The upper is composed of a flexible and softer material which didn’t affect its breathability. The tongue is now attached from the inside. The lace pattern is symmetrical again, without sacrificing the eyelets as lace holes.
Security and Stability
These running shoes offer a more secure and stable footing for runners. The lacing system and the tongue effectively lock the foot inside the upper. Additionally, PureFlow 3 uses a wider Nav band which fastens the foot to the midsole. The tread’s new patterns, made up of blown rubber pods, provide better traction and stability in dry or wet road conditions. The Ideal heel has been changed in this model. Moreover, the bevel is now surrounded by a row of rubber pods to enhance the shoes’ transition.
Comfort and Cushion
The Brooks DNA and BioMoGo material provide the shoes responsiveness and cushion despite of its light weight. Runners can go miles without losing its comfort. However, the shoes’ responsiveness can take away a little comfort in longer runs. The breathable mesh inside the upper provides extra comfort too during runs.
After discussing the details, specifications, and updates in this Brooks PureFlow 3 review, the strengths and weaknesses have been identified.
