FIRST GLANCE: Brooks Running PureConnect 3

Building on the success of its PureProject running footwear collection, Brooks Running has introduced the third installment of the minimalist-friendly series—yes, that means your favorite, the PureConnect, could get even better.

Like the rest of the PureProject 3 lineup, the PureConnect 3 will feature upgrades that incude a more rounded 360-degree heel for tighter support. Changes also come to the upper via a tweaked wrap that pulls from the medial side to offer a more custom fit. The shoe also features a repositioned Toe Flex to give runners greater flexibility and a quicker toe-off.

A release date for the PureConnect 3 is set for December 1, 2013. No word yet on the price, though we expect it to stay around the $80-$90 range.
