One thing any runner cannot ignore is the important of having running shoes. Running shoes are a must. They keep your feet protected and also improve your running but having any running shoe is not the solution. You need to have the right running shoes and to help you get the right running shoes below in this article I have covered for you important details of a running shoe I really like which is the Brooks PureFlow 4 running shoes. Although the previous versions of the shoe such as the PureFlow 2, 3 have been slightly disappointing the PureFlow 4 is nothing like them is so far the best version.
The weight of the Brooks PureFlow 4 men’s category with a size of 9 is 8.9 oz. The shoe is definitely quite light making running even more comfortable for you. Details of the stack heights are as follows, the height of the heel is 22 mm whereas the height of forefoot is 18 mm.
Upper and the fitting of the shoe
As compared to the PureFlow 2 or 3 the fit of the PureFlow 4 was way better. I have run a lot of miles in these shoes in the last month and trust me they have been very comfortable. Keep in mind that the Brooks PureFlow 4 is not a wide shoe and does not come with a large upper but you will note feel any squeezing, pain, etc. when you run. The look this shoe is also amazing. Personally I prefer the red and black color combination but in case you do not like it there are other colors also that you can opt for.
As for the inside of the shoe the lining that has been given on the inside in very relaxing and smooth. The material that has been used in that region is quite good. Apart from that the tongue is also padded nicely and lacing is also up to the mark.
The only change here that I would love to see is a little reduction in weight and also less complication. The one thing that will ensure these things is the removal of the Nav band.
Sole of the shoes
The best feature of the Brooks PureFlow 4 is the sole of the shoe. The sole of this shoe ensures you get a soft and comfortable run. It comes with a BioMogo-DNA blend midsole which ensure each impact is smooth and that it does not slow you down in any way.
Another feature I love about the sole is the rounded heel. The advantage of this is that it helps reduce weight of the shoe. This is one of the only shoes with this design. The only problem regarding the sole of this shoe is that there are no rubber out soles which makes is prone to wear and tear when used roughly.
If you are training for a marathon the Brooks PureFlow 4 is the right shoe for you because is lightweight and will help you run longer rather than faster. Another advantage of this shoe is that is it relatively cheap and will cost you around $110.
