Brooks PureGrit 3 preview

A sneak peak at Brooks' latest trail shoe - will it justify the hype?

Brooks has revealed their third iteration of the PureGrit trail shoe and it has undergone a complete redesign from top to bottom.

Featuring a bulkier outsole than before, the PureGrit 3 boasts a more aggressive lug pattern than its previous incarnation. It also includes a new forefoot rock plate, meaning the shoe isn’t limited to low-key trails and can now be worn on more technical terrain.

The upper may look unchanged, but it has also been significantly altered. The tongue, for starters, has reverted back to a traditional style – its previous polarising wrap design didn’t cater for a wide range of foot shapes. The overlay has been modified slightly too, in aid of improved and more comfortable fit.

Like the rest of the PureProject collection, the shoe is pretty lightweight. Weighing in at just 280g, it may please you to know that they haven’t compromised on its weight. So don’t be put off by its beefier appearance, as it’s now 17g lighter than before.

Low profile and still a go-to shoe for many trail runners, this one looks set to make a big impact.
