Best for: Trail running

The Brooks PureGrit 4 has a low heel-toe drop and a flexible midsole so you can be as agile as possible on a technically difficult terrain. The cushioning is just enough to protect you. These running shoes are ideal for short to medium and fast routes, according to reviews. People like them because they are comfortable, have good traction and are pretty light. “Love the way the shoe doesn't interfere with your natural way to run,” one person wrote.
