That's why I got the Pure Cadence. I was getting a twinge in my right knee when running and have never had knee problems. My brother who has been a distance runner for years recommended them and it was game over for that knee pain.
I've had a shoe fetish my entire life and I've always had nice shoes but when I put those damn things on, it was a religious experience. I'll never own anything else the rest of my life. It feels a little strange at first because they distribute your weight different than what you are used to but I wear them like house shoes now.
I started buying everything Brooks after that, even jackets and non running stuff.

That is EXACTLY what has been happening to me lately. It's the reason why I'm going to Brooks for my next pair of running shoes. I love my Asics now, but I need something that is going to help keep my heels from striking the ground.

Yup good stuff. I've run in brooks for the last several years... Never a problem. Running clothes are a little pricey, but are worth it.... Have several items. Might be moving to the pure cadence next week. My last 2 pair of shoes have been KSwiss blade lights. They have a heel drop similar to the cadence but these frickers pick up too many rocks. I love my KSwiss, but its time for a change.

For someone like me they're a Godsend. Adidas, Nike, Reebok all end with me rolling my ankle when doing anything more than a leisurely walk. I underpronate like a mofo. I realize I could get shoes from other companies that help just as much, but Brooks was my first introduction into a specialized shoe so I've stuck with them. Currently in the Ghost 5 and they're great. A little more toe room than I'm used to personally, but still 10x better than anything I've owned from Nike.
