Our View – Brooks Mens PureGrit 6:
The Brooks PureGrit 6 is a really nice, fast and light trail shoe designed to provide the runner with a natural foot function to maximise agility across uneven terrain. Foot flexibility is enhanced in the forefoot via the Omega Flex Grooves which allow a full and natural toe-off.
With a 4mm heel to toe drop the PureGrit has a nice low profile that encourages a fast and efficient foot strike most suitable for normal to high arched feet. Despite the lightweight nature of the PureGrit, cushioning is in no way compromised thanks to the BioMoGo DNA midsole that dynamically adapts to each stride for optimal cushioning and protection. Furthermore, the rounded heel minimises impact forces by encouraging a more midfoot foot plant and associated better full-body alignment.
The upper is supremely comfortable and fits like a glove without any restrictions, hot spots or potential areas of irritation. The PureGrit 6 really does feel like an extension of your body.
The grippy outsole is perfect for mixed terrain and is especially suited to harder packed trails, forrest paths and a mix of on and off-road runs. If you want a fast, efficient and lightweight trail running shoe then the Brooks PureGrit 6 is hard to beat for performance and comfort.
