Brooks PureConnect 3 - Women's Unleash your natural run with the Brooks PureConnect 3. Building off Brooks' successful PureProject and the PureConnect 2 running shoe, the PureConnect 3 welcomed upgrades include a more rounded 360º heel for tighter support and a tweaked wrap on the upper that provides a personalized fit. A repositioned Toe Flex gives greater flexibility and a quicker toe-off, keeping you ahead of the competition. With an all-synthetic design, this lightweight running shoe is vegan-friendly. The polyester mesh upper increases airflow, keeping your feet cool and dry as you speed up. To propel you forward, Ideal Heel design uses a curved heel to encourage foot contact, help align joints and reduce foot stresses points. BioMoGo midsole provides cloud-like cushioning and efficient energy return. A slight 4mm heel-to-toe drop promotes a more natural midfoot or forefoot strike. Low-to-the-ground rubber outsole offers durable grip and a minimalistic feel. Wt. 6.1 oz.


  • Lightweight uppers feature highly breathable polyester mesh and a rubber instep band to provide a comfortable, secure fit regardless of foot shape


  • Designed around an anatomic foot shape, Brooks PureConnect 3 Road-Running Shoes contour to the feet, providing a glovelike fit


  • Omega flex grooves enhance midsole flexibility while offering great cushioning
  • Midsoles feature BioMoGo polymer alloy foam, which provides cushioning, energy return and reduced foot fatigue; nontoxic additive helps midsoles break down in landfill

Traction and Grip:

  • Low-profile rubber outsoles grip well on the road, sidewalk and gentle trails


  • 4mm heel-to-toe drop encourages a natural midfoot or forefoot strike to promote forward momentum and reduce the impact of heel striking
  • Ideal Heel design uses a curved heel to encourage foot contact points to shift you forward, helping to align joints and reduce stresses
  • Split toe groove under the forefoot enables the big toe to function independently and helps encourage natural balance

Combined, these technologies are designed to promote an efficient, natural stride by encouraging a more forward foot strike, which places the runner over their center of gravity, helps align the body and reduces harmful stress.
Built for the neutral runner seeking a minimalist running shoe that places little between the runner and the ground.
Highly breathable mes upper with lightweight synthetic overlays.
Wide Elastic Nav Band across the instep to ensure a secure, glove-like fit.
Plush tongue and collar for exceptional comfort.
Soft, breathable lining offers a great next-to-skin feel.
Molded foam insole supplies light underfoot cushioning.
Full-length BioMoGo DNA is a blend of earth-friendly BioMoGo and responsive Brooks DNA, and has a gender-friendly cushioning design, making for a dynamic ride.
Toe Flex features a split-toe design that heightens forefoot flexibility and promotes the big toe to engage the runner's natural stability and power during push-off.
The heel is slimmed down and rounded to encourage contact points to shift forward, aligning the joints and creating optimal energy return.
Let your feet sing with the light-as-air Brooks PureConnect 3 running shoe. With a breathable mesh upper, this women's athletic shoe is the perfect choice for runners who crave less shoe and more freedom. The split toe groove extends towards the midfoot, engaging the natural movement of the forefoot and creating an enhanced sense of feel. With enhanced Toe Flex, streamlined medial side design, and a slightly more rounded heel, the Brooks PureConnect 3 shoe is ready to kick.


Featuring plenty of feel and flex, the lightweight women's Brooks PureConnect 3 Road-Running Shoes give you just enough shoe to make tight turns and take off on a spontaneous breakaway.

Positive Reviews:

My FAVORITE running shoe ever! I've had all three PureConnect models, plus 2 PureFlows, a PureCadence, and numerous other running shoes - from motion control when I first started running (was told I over-pronated) to neutral to racing flats and these shoes are by far my favorites! I trained for half marathons in my PureConnect 2s and ran the races in them but one element of the design in both the 1s and the 2s bothered me. The inside of the heel on the inner side of the shoe was thicker than the outside and threw my feet outward, even though I land mid-foot. On the 3s, Brooks has remedied this problem and the heel is level. I got my 3s on FRI and ran a 5k SAT morning. I never thought about my shoes throughout the race - a good sign. The fit is comfortable and perfect! Although this is a very light shoe, it provides plenty of support and is breathable.

I bought these with no reviews yet, which is tough for me to do. First, I'm more of a "jogger" than a runner. I walk/run on a treadmill at the gym for only 20 minutes at most. I have also never spent more than $70 on a running shoe until these. I have not run in them yet, but I at least wanted to post up that they were true to size for me, if that helps anyone. They're not as "chunky" as I thought they looked in the pictures. The top of the toe box is flat, so it's a little different look and feel, and they are pretty lightweight. Looking forward to trying them out tomorrow! Thanks as always for the super-fast shipping, Z!

Solid shoe

I discovered Brooks shoes a couple of years ago, switching over from another brand. I improved my running style to land more on the ball/center of my foot vs. heel-toe in order to save my knees. I've only put about 30 miles on these shoes and all treadmill only. They feel great. I would not recommend this style of running shoe if you are a heel-toe runner as the cushioning is less in the heel to accommodate/promote ball/center landings.

I have bought all of the Pure Connect's, 1, 2 & 3. In my opinion they all run 1/2size small if you want the perfect fit. Someone said arch felt like a golf ball. I noticed the same but it quickly molded to my foot and the I felt only support. I LOVE Pure Connect's and hope the continue this style.

They felt wonderful on my feet. However, I couldn't get past looking down and seeing something non-symmetrical. The curve of the heel threw me off too.

Negative Reviews:

Loved my PC 1's and still wear them as my go to running shoe. Although I initially wrote a good review for the 2nd version I quickly realized I hated them. They ran a full size small and the arch support felt like a tennis ball under my foot. In fact they actually aggravated my back and gave me foot problems. Ordered the 3's and while they corrected the sizing issue they still do not cut the mustard as compared to the PC 1. Also could the colors get any uglier? These went back. And the search continues.
