"Sometimes you can have your cake and eat it, too. Case in point: The PureConnect 2, a minimal-inspired shoe that's light on your foot—and wallet—while still providing a soft ride coparable to that found on more substantial footwear. Credit this to a high-quality midsole foam that seriously dampens the impact of the road, even though your foot is positioned close to the roadway. Wear-testers commented on the puzzling lace pattern, which curves across the top of your foot. It proved to be sufficient, however, and securely locks the foot down."
