"I suffer from plantar faciiatis and have been struggling with heel and arch pain for a while. I wear orthotics/arch supports and they fit just fine in these. The toe box runs a bit narrow and I wear a 10 in other shoes, 11 in running shoes. Definitely get a size up in these. The foam sole is squishy and softer than other Brooks shoes I've worn. I've put about 50 miles on these in a short time and they seem sturdy enough. Great reflective patterns help with safety aspects."
"Best running shoe on the market, in my opinion. Super comfy and thick soles, but not bulky like some other running shoes. Great price considering these usually run about $100 a pair! Highly recommended!"
"Very comfortable and very light. These are my favorite running shoes ever! I used nike free in the past but do not like the new flex shoes that replaced the frees. These are an excellent replacement."
"This was my first pair of Brooks and I've always heard awesome things about the brand. I love these shoes. Extremely comfy, breathable, great colors, extremely cushioning. This will not be my last pair."
"As someone who has recently gotten into running (and doesn't do it as much as I should), I've been looking for a good quality running shoe that I wouldn't have to drop tons of money on. These shoes fit great and feel great; nice and light. I wish the pink style was available when I purchased these because they're much cuter in my opinion, but the black and silver still has a classic look."
"MY HUSBAND GOT THE PUREFLOW2 SHOES AS MY BIRTHDAY PRESENT.THEY ARE GREAT. I WEAR THEM EXERCISEING AND I EVEN WORN THEM TO WORK. IT'S BEEN A WEEK AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE SHOES! I WILL RECOMMEND THEM TO OTHERS"
"These are the only shoes I run on the pavement with, they have low drop, excellent cushion, and the split at the toe keeps my big toe from getting the horrible rub callous that it gets in every other running shoe I've ever tried! The toe box had tons of volume for my slightly wider forefoot, yet a nice snug heel for my narrow heels. I did go up to a size 7 instead of my regular 6.5, and the fit is just perfect for long or short runs. Love this shoe!!"
"This might be one of my most favorite pairs of running shoes...ever. The fit is precise, the cushion more than adequate, and the flexibility perfect. Would and will definitely buy these again in the future!"
"This is a good lightweight minimal shoe for running and other cardio activity. The arch support is good but I find the pure cadence more comfortable overall. These feel big when I put them on but my feet tend to swell so I am glad I went up a size."
"I'm a 20-30 mile per week runner and have sworn by Brooks (especially the trainers for neutral pronators) since I ran my first mile in a pair of Ghosts about 6 years ago. This is the first time I've bought the PureFlow and the first time I've bought athletic shoes from DSW. They are well up to par with Brooks' usual quality!"
"Love these. Wore saucony brand forever and tried these out in an effort to get to zero drop footwear. These have 4mm drop or zero if you remove foot bed. Nice room in toe box too, though it could be a smidge larger and the newer model has gone narrow again. I already have quite narrow feet so getting a large toe box isn't so hard...other than that, they are incredibly comfortable and feel soft and supple out of the box. My absolute favorite shoe for now."
