Not like my other PureFlow'sVerified Buyer Reviewed by marathoner6714 from Colorado on Sunday, December 3, 2017After running in Brooks PureFlow's for many, many years. I was SO disappointed in this version. I found the ball of my foot went numb, perhaps too narrow. I ran in them 5 times and it didn't get better. I'm not sure what they did with this version, but I had to find a new go to running shoe.
Change in fit.Reviewed by Elaine from Michigan (MI) on Tuesday, August 29, 2017This is my 3rd pair of pure flow. I have worn the 1st and 3rd generation. This 5th generation is too tight and short with a really weird tongue which needs to be trimmed. No chance of running barefoot in these. I think they're going back..
Good fitVerified Buyer Reviewed by Chicago from Chicago on Tuesday, August 15, 2017Size 6 was perfect for my slim feet. They are cute. Took one star off after I tried on a pair of Ryka that was 8 oz. lighter. I'm keeping this pair because it's a better fit. Will wear it for daily run and wear the Ryka for races.

Great shoes!Verified Buyer Reviewed by joefled from Arkansas on Friday, August 11, 2017Love these. Very comfortable, but you should order 1/2 size larger than you usually wear.
Great shoe!Verified Buyer Reviewed by Meg’s Nana from Arkansas on Friday, August 4, 2017I bought these for my 10-year-old granddaughter, who is usually not a fan of athletic shoes. She loves everything about these shoes from the design to to look of the shoe. They are lightweight, colorful, and comfortable. I buy her Brooks because it is my favorite shoe for walking.
So happy to buy a second pair!Verified Buyer Reviewed by poodlegal from Cali on Monday, July 10, 2017I already have these exact shoes purchased previously elsewhere and I love them. They are lightweight and served me well on a recent trip to Europe where I walked about 8 miles a day in cities. They have a good fit in the heel and roomy in the toebox. The padding is comfortable,but these are not super squishy shoes.I jumped at the opportunity to get another pair at a bargain price and have retired my old gym shoes.
sizing way offVerified Buyer Reviewed by Tina from NJ on Wednesday, July 5, 2017I am a size 6 (Nike running sneaker). I originally ordered a size 6.5 to be safe since I've never ordered this brand sneaker before. When it arrived, to my surprise the size 6.5 was to small! So I called customer service and was charged a return postage fee, but they did ship me a size 7. When the seven arrived, you could image my surprise when they were also too small - felt the same as the 6.5. So instead of paying postage AGAIN, I just sucked it up and kept them. I'm hoping after a few runs they will loosen a bit because boy are they tight and uncomfortable. You would think ordering a two sizes bigger then your shoe size that they wouldn't be so tight....NEVER AGAIN AM I ORDERING SHOES OR SNEAKERS ONLINE!!
Good shoesVerified Buyer Reviewed by Zhanna from Washington on Tuesday, July 4, 2017I usually buy 8.5... This 8.5 feels a bit tight... hope it will be better after a couple of days
Too smallVerified Buyer Reviewed by Kuan from New Jersey on Monday, July 3, 2017The front of shoe is just too narrow. I tried it on at home sitting down, and it already cut my blood flow.

“do these shoes have good arch support as i have pretty flat feet and suffer from Plantar fascitis?”
I tried to reply, so I hope you receive this. Laura, I like arch support, too. This shoe has a good arch to it. I found though that although the length was good, the width was too tight so I exchanged for a half size up and it solved the problem. I hope this helps.
These shoes do have fairly good arch support.
My wife said the arch support was adequate in her opinion.
I feel that it has pretty good arch support, I need support too and it seems just right to me.
