The Brooks PureGrit 4 is a lightweight minimalist shoe with phenomenal traction. If you want to run trails and climb Sierra third class peaks, this shoe is the ideal choice. It is perfect for running Bishop Pass and climbing Mt. Agassiz.
- Drop: 4mm
- 3D Hex Lugs for maximum grip
- Rock Shield that protects the forefoot from sharp objects
**return the PureGrit 4 for up to 30 days even if you sweat in them**

The reason I felt this shoe didn't deserve 5/5 stars is because its outer material is not very durable. The breakdown of the outer fabric of the shoe makes the PureGrit feel floppier and less secure. I took my fresh-out-tha-box PureGrits on a desert trip where I knew there would be lots of miles of water slogging (the shoes are really breathable and dry quickly) and after the first day the fabric next to my pinky toe showed noticeable signs of wear. In all, the shoes still have no major blow-outs but don't quite possess the durability I would expect for a trail shoe. (Posted on 3/11/2016)
