R-2-n: sounds good, especially as you manage to fit in cycling/spin as well - I do a bit of swimming but spin is just so hard to fit in as well. 

Hill1: 6 months is plenty of time to take it slowly but purposefully Is this your first?

Stylish -   my training as usual had been suboptimal, and the mileage pathetic, but I tried to keep all long runs in and ran 3 x per week. I think the improvement on my previous marathon time was due to strength training - I also recovered quite quickly with minimal DOMS.

i like the title of this thread as I've just run 4.22.05 in Warsaw.. I have a charity place for VLM and hope to beat that.

running can be harmful

This research has not been published in peer reviewed journal yet, but presented at a conference. As I understand it it's based on self-reported data, which is good for the numbers of participants but perhaps not as robust as having the data verified by actually examining the study participants by doctor/researcher. 

Interesting that the author of the study is very clear about not being able to draw any definitive conclusions, but that never stopped the tabloid (or broadsheet) journos before..

I'd say the sizing on brooks is slightly smallerthan sketchers - my usual running shoes size is 7 ( including sketchers) but I take 7.5 in pure flows

@SSLHP right, no so minimal after all

@Flob they are probably as cushioned though less bouncy, if this makes sense.. Fit is actually what I prefer to Sketchers - nice and snug over mid foot and arch, wide enough in toebox

Rides feel like comfy slippers more than pure flow

well, I think version 3 is certainly an improvement on 2.. I went for the last run tonight stopping every so often to change shoes just to get the feeling of how they compare to my Sketchers - I think the fit is very good for me, though I can feel the edge of the tongue on the lateral side. Nice cushioning, not very flexible - but with history of PF it's probably good for me - I decided to keep them. 

Innov8 extreme I think are quite minimal? After dabbing with barefoot style, I decided I like a bit of cushioning after all

I have tried these now for a week in the Brooks Try-it-on project.

I loved original pure flows, hated version 2 and moved on to Sketchers GoRun Ride.

Pure Flow 3 - quite like these though I am not sure if more or even as much as the original edition. The fit is very nice, they are not as flexible though as Sketchers. Would be interested in other people's views?
