The shoe tends to be very tight thru the mid and toe section and takes some time to stretch out and wear. I am in my 3rd week of trying to run in them and they are still tight and I typically wear a B with that being somewhat loose.
Pros: lightweight, good arch support, good cushioning
Cons: runs narrow, runs small, uncomfortable

My prior favorite running shoe was the Brooks Trance 12. I was interested in trying a semi-minimalist shoe and I am so glad I did! The band around the arch feels like a hug around my midfoot. And the toe box is wide enough to allow my toes to spread out. The shoe is extremely light, MUCH lighter than the Trance. I will be purchasing several pairs of this shoe!

I love my Brooks Purecadence and thought the Purecadence 2 would have the same wonderful features but unfortunately they don't. They are more narrow and that is one of the reasons I stopped buying Nike and switched to Brooks and Mizuno's. I still have not used them because I'm not 100% sure I want to keep them. Also the color on the picture is not the actual color. They are black/ blue. That strip in the middle is not green, it is blue like the bottom of the shoe. Which doesn't bother me. I just wish Brooks didn't mess with a good thing. In actuality all they needed to do was change their color pallet. I'm a weekly runner but haven't ran more than 10 miles. I'm going to run my first 1/2 marathon and will be using my Mizuno wave prophecy 2 that I truly love because they're not narrow and feel great. Ok, thought it wasn't a complete review if I didn't run in them, so I ran 2 1/2 miles on my treadmill just incase I wanted to return them. Well they're not that bad. They still feel snug in the middle of my foot. I like them enough to keep them and use them for short runs and cross fit. I will use my Mizuno's for my 1/2 marathon and long runs. I hope this review and picture helped. I always read reviews so I thought I should give one.
Pros: lightweight, durable, good cushioning
Cons: runs narrow
