Well, Fed Ex dropped of the Pure Connect today and I immediately slapped them on. First off, and I knew this from trying them on over the weekend the arches are high higher than the Green Silence but not uncomfortable.
The toe box is a little narrow for my paddle of a foot but its not constricting and it already feels like it will stretch out nicely. I walked around lower manhattan and sat through a two hour seminar wearing them and they felt great the whole time. In fact it didn't feel like I was wearing anything at all which to me is a great sign that these shoes are for me.
