      I had been experiencing knee pain prior to purchasing these sneakers. Since I have been using them in my high intensity training classes, the knee pain is gone. These sneakers are good for my low arches and provide the right amount of support. Ado they are light and breathable.

          I did most of training with the previous years shoe. I ran a couple 10 mile training runs to check them out and then off to the NY marathon. These shoes are awesome. Lightweight for the last miles, grip for the wet pavements, open toe box to prevent toe issues. My new fav.

          Comments about Mens Brooks PureCadence 3 Running Shoe:

          I average 40-50 mi/week, and retire these @ about 350. I'd been hoarding pairs of PureCadence 2's, mostly because of the color options (love the black PC 2s), but finally started rotating these in towards the end of the summer. The PC 3's are growing on me, but I have a few minor complaints about the changes over the PC 2: the sole feels a little stiffer mid-foot and (for me) it seems to interrupt the transition from landing to push-off just a little; the upper seems narrower mid foot and pulls up on my arch more than I'm accustomed to (although this might ultimately be support that I need); and the colors are AWEFUL. Seriously Ugly.

          If the PC2s were still available, I'd buy them indefinitely, but barring that the PureCadence in any iteration is still my go to shoe for a daily trainer, and I'd buy it over anything else.

          That said, if you're listening Brooks, can we have some kind of black or dark gray as an option for the PC4? Seriously, some of us guys like to both run neutral and LOOK neutral!

            The cadence are my favorite shoe for going long on pavement. Lots of room in the toe box and lots of cushion for such a light shoe. I ran an ironman and a couple half marathons in the first version of the cadence. The 3rd version are narrower and stiffer (upper) but don't seem to feel any different when I run. Running a marathon in two days. I'll post an update.

              Comments about Mens Brooks PureCadence 3 Running Shoe:

              PureCadence 1 & 2 were great functionally (looks - in the eye of the beholder I suppose). Version 2 modified the upper from version 1 - the tongue mostly, but the fit was the same (slipperlike!). When PureCadence was first introduced I had to size down a half for versions 1 & 2 from men's 11 (consistently for Adrenaline and Ravena) to 10.5. Just got PureCadence version 3; ran in twice and experienced toe jam in the 10.5. Also, the shoe seems tighter/more snug all around. The support band is now made of a tough rubber band versus an elastic material band in versions 1 & 2, so that may be adding to the tighter feel. The sole is redesigned and feels even better than versions 1 & 2. There is a new suede textured band around the top of the forefoot of the upper - slight pinch on the outside of the shoe where the band is stitched to the upper. Reordered size 11 from RR. Love the new sole and feel; wish they left the upper alone; the sizing issue will happen with redesigns and is relative: hence my indications for Sizing and Width above - might want to size up or try on in store if going from PureCadence 2 to 3.

              Comments about Mens Brooks PureCadence 3 Running Shoe:

              I've used all three versions of this shoe. The first worked great and I trained and ran nyc 1/2 in them with no issues. Ver 2 had major changes and I began having a hot spot on the outer right foot. Same with ver 3. I have a slight pronation and these seem to fix that and they are light weight. I also like a softer shoe which this is versus the ds trainer series. I like the shoe but I'm not 100% sold on it and for durability it's at most 200 miles especially if you run outside in winter and rain. As for cosmetics I'm not sure you can come up with uglier color combos if you tried.

              Great shoe especially if you are looking lightweight cushion. It feels cloud like which is great for excessive road running. My very high aches love the shoe. HOWEVER the red band across the top of the foot is VERY tight. It causes pain after 8+ miles that feels like a hot poker down to my big toe. This may be a personal problem and if you aren't spending as much time in the shoe not an issue. Just a heads up
