With lean construction and a responsive fit, the Brooks PureCadence 2 Road
Running Shoe for men rethinks how support technology is engineered. Features
like the internal PDRB help prevent overpronation. Without the added parts and
the wide Nav Band holds your foot like an endless hug. Add fresh looks and some
street cred, and this featherweight friend will run footloose and fancy-free
Just like Brooks core line, they hold PureProject to the industry’s highest wear
test and durability standards. Because of their lightweight construction and
fewer materials, runners should generally expect shoes from the PureProject line
to last approximately 250-300 miles.
- provides custom cushioning for runners of all types and sizes. Engineered from
what's called a non-Newtonian liquid, this midsole technology responds to the
amount of force placed on the foot and disperses
- Among Brooks proudest achievements is the creation of the BioMogo midsole, one
of the sporting goods industry's most exciting environmental innovations ever.
Traditional midsoles made of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate™ (EVA) are one of the least
biodegradable shoe components, lasting up to 1,000 years in a landfill. Brooks
added a non-toxic, natural additive to the MoGo compound that encourages
anaerobic microbes to munch away once the material hits an active, enclosed
landfill. A five-year study found that BioMoGo degrades 50 times faster than the
standard midsole in anaerobic conditions, and will save 29.9 million pounds of
landfill waste in roughly 20 to 25 years. BioMoGo made its debut in the Trance 8
in 2009, and by 2010, was available in most of Brooks men's and women's
performance running shoes. BioMoGo technology represents valuable intellectual
property resulting from major investment of resources, yet Brooks decided at the
outset to treat this advancement as an "open source" innovation.
– Brooks’ signature inverted heel promotes a natural foot strike by landing in a
more forward position on the foot. This aligns the runner’s center of gravity
and encourages optimal energy return.
– A toe box split allows the big toe to function independently and engage the
runner’s natural balance. Flexible materials empower a more efficient push off
during the propulsion phase
– This flexible band wraps over the instep to comfortably secure the foot in
place. The dynamic stretch provides just the right amount of reinforcement and
conforms to individual foot shapes and sizes.
– Designed from an anatomical form, the shoe’s shape contours the foot for a
glove-like feel and provides support for every part of the foot.
