- Additional Information: The Pure Grit has a wrap-like fit at the midfoot and a secure snugness at the heel, but a more generous cut in the forefoot. Combined with the snug fit and soft, pliable upper, this shoe feels like it’s an extension of your foot. A unique balance of soft cushioning and a low-to-the-ground design (plus a 5mm heel-toe drop), the lightweight Pure Grit allows a runner to feel the trail and run nimbly on a variety of surfaces. A curved heel promotes an uninhibited heel-to-toe transition, while the split toebox, designed to let the big toe work independently, increases balance and encourages the feet to function more naturally—particularly when cornering. It has enough cushion to soften the impact of hard surfaces, even without a midsole protection plate.
