The lowest, lightest, most flexible PureProject shoe, the new Brooks Menís PureDrift Running Shoe feels so natural that itís perfect for strengthening your feet or participating in streaking. The PureDrift is better than naked feet because it will protect your little piggies with its BioMoGo DNA midsole. Featuring a hardly-there upper and weighing in at a mere 5.6 ounces, youíll feel as free as a bird. You can also remove the sockliner for a zero drop running experience. This is as natural as running gets without running in a loincloth to hunt down deer with a spear. Feet, meet feel.

Great for the barefoot-curious
February 16, 2013
If you've read Born to Run or are just intrigued by the barefoot running revolution, these shoes provied a great intro to that world. With a low-drop (something like 4-5mm) between the heel and toe (most shoes give around a 12mm drop) with the standard sockliner, these shoes don't have "grabby" heels that make it difficult to run with a midfoot or forefoot style. Taking the sockliner out gives a true zero-drop shoe, with all its benefits and hazards (benefits=faster, more efficient running; hazards=potential calf issues if you rush into that style). They are ridiculously lightweight, feeling comparable in my hand to my ultra-minimalist barefoot-style shoes, but with a lot more cushioning. Finally, they have a decent sized toebox that allows you to spread your toes out and increase your stability. If you're interested in working on your running form and transitioning to a more efficient midfoot-style, these shoes provide an ideal entrance to that world without "polarizing" styling *cough-toeshoes-cough* or frighteningly minimalist construction. If you're looking for a well-built, but super lightweight pair of shoes for races, these definitely fit the bill. If you're a heel striker who overpronates, you probably want to look elsewhere, as they don't provide much of any stability (just cushioning). As an employee of TriSports.com, I was given these shoes at no cost to evaluate.
