Brooks PureCadence 3 Shoe Review

Brooks PureCadence 3 Running Shoe Review

I have been a huge fan of the Brooks Purecadence running since its inception. I have had countless pairs of the PureCadence 1 and PureCadence 2 models. The PureCadence 3 shoe came out earlier this year, but I never picked up a pair because I kept getting great deals on the PureCadence 2. Recently Running Warehouse had a sale to celebrate their 100,000 follower on Facebook and this allowed me to pick up the 3 for around $55 which is an absolute steal.

I must say that these are probably my favorite shoe series followed closely by the Hoka One One Cliftons and Adidas Tempo shoes.

Pros Cons
  • Great Lightweight Support
  • Amazing Fit and Feel
  • Run True to Size
  • Reasonably Priced
  • Limited Color Options
  • Sole Durability

Brooks PureCadence 3 Shoe Verdict

The Brooks PureCadence running shoe is my ideal stability daily trainer. This shoe not only looks amazing, but it is light enough to be a daily trainer and speed work shoe. I have been a huge fan of all the PureCadence models and this one is no exception. This shoe has a unique tongue that provides a snug fit that feels great.

I highly recommend giving these shoes a try.


Brooks PureCadence 3 Shoe Initial Thoughts

When I ordered the Brooks Purecadence 3 shoes, I was hoping they were similar to the earlier 2 models. When I opened the box and felt the shoe, I knew instantly I would like it. I wasn’t a huge fan of the teal, but it was unique and would help me stand out when running at night. I love the tongue and fit of these shoes. The asymmetrical lacing really helps with the tender spots I have on the top of my foot. The shoes are light enough to feel fast and supportive enough for the longer runs.

As I mentioned earlier, I have been a huge fan of the PureCadence series and think most people would enjoy running in these Brooks shoes.

Brooks PureCadence 3 Shoe Overview

The Brooks Purecadence 3 running shoe is an absolutely great stability shoe that provide a tremendous amount of support and improve your everyday workouts. The durable rubber outsole and asymmetrical lacing make this unique upper extremely comfortable. Like earlier models, this shoe is ideal for runners who prefer lightweight performance stability shoes.

The unique colors make this shoe stand out. The blue and red ones are definitely my favorite of the 3 colors although I loved the color options of the PureCadence 2.

Weighing in at 8.6 oz for a men’s size 9, make this light enough for speed work and supportive enough for daily training.

Brooks PureCadence 3 Shoe Sole

The Brooks Purecadence 3 running shoe sole is very similar to the earlier model. I do hope that this sole is more durable than the PureCadence 2. The PureCadence 3 has an improved heel, which helps promote a natural running motion and encourage forefoot striking.

The PureCadence 3 sole has an improved rubber that will improve durability, support, and flexibility. All of which should make this an even better shoe than the previous model.

Brooks PureCadence 3 Shoe Upper

The Brooks Purecadence 3 running shoe incorporates a few different technologies that help make this shoe unique. For starters, the asymmetrical lacing  that provides a better fit when the shoe is tied and minimizes the chance of irritating the top of your foot. This is something that has helped me work through a few foot pains I had when I started running. This shoe also has a Nav Band, which you can easily see when looking at the shoe. This band provides support and helps keep the foot secure when running.
