The Brooks PureCadence 2 was reviewed by Sneaker Report last month, and was praised for its sleek fit and out-of-box comfort. Its mesh upper provides plenty of breathability, while an internal PDRB system helps to combat overpronation. Meanwhile, a Nav Band wraps the foot for a snug, glove-like fit. Brooks' BioMoGo biodegradable midsole provides a soft and responsive cushion, while the outsole is composed of a durable carbon rubber. The Brooks PureCadence 2 is recommended for runners who overpronate or have high arches, but any running fanatic should give them a try at $120.
