I have been an Asics girl from day one. Up until recently, I never thought I would give another shoe a chance. This was until I was invited to test out the Brooks Pure Drift, an amazingly light shoe which is extremely comfortable and part of the Brooks Pure Project. Feel more with less!
When the box arrived with my new shoes, it was like one of those nest egg presents that have a smaller and smaller box inside until you get to the present. Every flap had a new message. These are more than just a running shoe. They are a megaphone for the roar of your run. A connect-with-the-ground and hug-every-turn joy ride for the senses. Simply put, the are the woo to your hoo. These are more than just running shoes, they are the pureproject by Brooks.
Pure Project Pure Drift in all of their glory. Black with bright pink and grey accents. The brooks logo is light reflective for night runners like myself. I was also excited to learn that Brooks has a nightlife running collection! The bottom is actually mother of pearl. At first glance, I thought it was bright white which scared me because I didn't want them to get dirty fast. Then I saw the glimmer and decided I really like the contrast.
These shoes are not available to the public until January but you can pre-order them today and they will be shipped on 1/3/13. On a side note, if you are looking to buy your loved one a new pair of running shoes and are unsure of what kind of shoes they run in, please buy them a gift card. Every runner is different, therefor many people need different types of shoes.
Thank you Brooks for allowing me the opportunity to check these shoes out for myself. I cannot wait to report back in the following weeks what my long term experience is with them.
If you need anymore proof that these shoes are amazingly light, check out this video from Brooks Running!
