Mallory Kingwrote a review of Brooks PureGrit 4 Trail Running Shoe - Women's on June 9, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Buy em'! Here's why:
-They are comfortable right out of the box! No wear-in period or getting use to these. I was worried about the break in time, given I went from a minimalist shoe to these (4mm) but no problems at all!
-The grip is GREAT! I feel like an animal on the trail, the shoes glide over big rocks, dirt, mud, roots, grass, you name it, they conquer it. Also enough padding on the sole that the big rocks don't hurt but huge plau that the cushion doesn't add extra weight. (Warning: these are made for the outdoors, the rad grips are slippery on tile and wood floors)
-Fit is perfect! They feel like an extension of my own feet. I'll be honest, I wasn't sold on the Nav Band idea, seemed like a scam, but its AMAZING! I was unaware, until these shoes, how much my mid-sole moved around. Now, with the Nav Band I can really focus on shaving off those minutes without any worries!
-They're nice on the eyes as well!
These were my first pair of Brooks and I'm totally converted!
