Free Shoe Test – Brooks Pure Project

I saw a link on the Runners World forums today to a Brooks website. It seems that between February 21st and the 28th they are offering people the chance to test out some of their new Pure Proect series of shoes. I quickly signed up and confirmed that in just over a month’s time. I will be testing out a pair of the lightest and most flexible of the more minimal range, the PureDrift. If you want to join in, you can sign up here.


“Experience the next thing to naked feet with the hyper-light PureDrift. Spread those toes with dual Toe Flex splits that allow your forefoot to flex through its three functional units, creating natural balance and a springy push-off. An anatomical last mimics the shape of your foot for a closer fit and the hardly-there upper provides just a little more coverage than a birthday suit. When you really want to feel free as a bird, remove the sockliner for a zero drop experience. No-seam construction keeps it comfortable and a soft platform mellows impact. Feet, meet feel”

I’ve never worn a pair of Brooks shoes before, but am excited about the chance to try out some new shoes in a proper running environment. They seem like they meet all the requirements I have (They’re super light and have a 4mm heel-toe drop with the insole in and 0mm without the insole) for a running shoe, but with the adequate cushioning I need for pounding the pavements of Southampton. I’ll give an update on them when I’ve had a chance to really try them out.
