Just a great running shoe for speed work and longer runs

Very comfortable and actually feel if I am running more naturally, managed a half marathon and no problems as I was a bit nervous running on a minimalistic shoe, great
Genuinely none

Amazeballs!!

I was suffering really badly with Shin Splints from overpronating I went to Up & Running in Oxford they did my Gait analysis and after trying 3 different pairs I opted for the Brooks, they're amazing, I haven't looked back.

Awesome

Lightweight, yet they feel cushioned enough to take the pounding on tarmac. I just ran a half in them and feel confident enough to run a mara in them in a few weeks.
They only has BRIGHT green in stock!
My first minimal shoes, changing from a very supportive stability Adidas due as I used to pronated badly. I still pronate a bit, but this shoe control it when I had the gait analysis.

I've recently changed my gait to a mid/fore foot strike and these really help me achieve that.

No blisters either, unlike my old shoes.

A great comfortable fast shoe that does what it says on the box

It is lightweight and still supportive and gives a fatser more flexible run. I am about to buy my 4th pair and am also going to get the trail version. I wear orthotics in mine as I am a massive over pronator. The combination works well and all my injury issues and niggles have gone. Great over longer distances too.
Unlike other reviewers I find they don't wear so well. Normally I would change a shoe at about 500 miles, but these definitely need changing at 300 miles.
A great shoes for anyone wanting to move into the minimalist arena. My podiatrist loves them and is really impressed with gait that I have when running in them. I would never go back to traditional cushioned shoes now.

Best running shoes I've owned yet

As a runner who previously had mild support shoes, but looking toward a more minimalist style shoe, I was given a pair of these to try amongst others at a running store in the City. They are the most incredibly comfortable running shoes I have ever owned, to the point I almost bought a second pair to kick around in (but didn't have another spare £90...) A quick jaunt on the in store treadmill had them confirmed as my new shoes. I find they give the perfect balance of support with minimal shoe for anyone in the transitional position or needs that little bit of support.
I generally hate the colours of all running shoes. So i can't really call the hideous silver stripes a con against Pure Cadence itself...
Awesome.
