Did you have to transition into it or are they not that extreme?
These sound like quite good shoes then.
I'm worried as I may have to buy blind as others have found, they are not widely stocked. I have that problem with most of the running shoes that I am interested in.
It seems such a gamble with so much money. Though the last pair of running shoes I bought didn't work out as the soles came away from the shoe. I don't know if this is because I'm flexing them too much or I've just bought a Friday afternoon lemon.
I currently run in Brooks GTS Adrenalines but have been thinking of these Brooks Pure Cadence due to all the positive reviews they've been getting. I'm guessing/hoping they will become a bit more widely available, and the prices will start to drop a bit. I normally buy 2E width size, but they only seem to have D width in these - any wide feet people bought Brooks Pure range and have had any issues?
I am thinknig of buying a pair of the brooks cadence, i am currently training in Brooks ravenna. Would you recommend making the transition to the brooks cadence, are there any real benefits? I would like to use these as my racing shoes also? I am in the process of training for longer distances with my longest run at the minute being 15miles. The other sessions i do are 2 7 milers, a track session (using spikes) tempo intervals, 3miles and 5 miles. What would you recommend using these shoes in?
I bought a pair of these last week. After doing a 5 mile run yesterday, I was nearly crippled for the rest of the day. They are quite narrow and although I tried them on in the shop, where they felt ok, the left one got tighter and tighter. Nearly stopped to take it off on the last bit home where I walk and my right foot was so sore that I just limped on it for the rest of the day. Off to see if shop will change them. Bit put out as have been looking forward to owning a pair for a while. The 4mm drop was not a problem at all. Got saucony guide 5's. Just wanted to alternate with a different pair.
Hi I have a pair of PureCadence not the new model and I have done about 200 miles in them and while they have been great it has on my left foot given me a really sore joint on my big toe. I think it is because there is so much spare material where the tongue is sewn into the show. Not sure if they are all like this or my pair were a bit reject?? My local running shop just suggest I tried not lacing through that bottom whole on the inside! Not really the best of responses.....
