There are a selection of Brooks Pure Project Shoes each designed for different types of feet. Similar to ‘conventional’ running shoes the level of support in the shoes is different so there is a shoe for a mild over pronator (Pure Cadence), who might be wearing a Brooks Adrenaline GTS or a Brooks Trance at present, there is a guidance shoe (Pure Flow) for those who might be wearing a Brooks Ravenna at present and a neutral shoe (Brooks Connect) for the Brooks Glycerin wearer.
As well as considering how much pronation or inward role the customer has in order to select the right Brooks Pure Project Shoe we also need to consider how strong the customers feet are. Pure Connect is the most flexible shoe in the range and will allow the foot to bend in all directions. Some customers wearing Glycerin’s might not have strong enough feet to cope with a shoe as flexible as this yet. So, they would be better off starting using the Pure Flow and getting used to the more natural mid foot style of running first then moving to the Pure Connect later.
At Northern Runner we can help you pick the right shoe to help make the transition to more minimalist footwear. To find out more pop in to our Newcastle store.
