Trail runners will love the hug-your-foot upper, slim midsole, and pliable yet protective outsole.
While the new line of Brooks footwear called the Pures deliberately avoids using the minimalist tag, these shoes still have a lot of minimalist features: lightweight; flexible soles, very little heel-to-toe drop. Citing extensive market research, Brooks claims that runners aren't looking for "less" in a shoe; they want more! But where that "more" ends up is not a thick, non-flexing tread or monster crash-heel-pad. The "more" seems to be linked to a consumer's preference for snazzy styling and high-tech design and cushiony features.
