I have been wearing Pure Flows, but Brooks has changed the style of them. The newer Pure Connects have also been changed, so I felt lucky to be able to get this model. I have been wearing minimal shoes including 5 fingers for several years, but need something with more padding for 10 mile plus distances, and something I can wear a warm sock in when it goes under 40 degrees. These shoes have extra padding under the ball of the foot for us forefoot strikers. They also have more arch support than I am used to, but they instantly felt like "mine" when I put them on. I ended up buying 2 pair.
