Additional Information

Minimalists delight in the Racer ST 5, with just the right touch of support. The shoe is super lightweight for racing – from a 5K to a marathon -- but has the substance and durability required for tempo runs and training. With an upgrade to the resilient, long-lasting cushioning of BioMoGo, your feet will stay protected and your legs fresh, mile after mile. And, yes, they’re bright – you’ll be a blur when you speed down the road.
Available in men’s sizes only. (For women we suggest ordering 1.5 sizes smaller than what you usually wear.)

      My first time wearing these. Used to wear Launch, but didn't have my size so tried these. Great replacement!! A little lighter than the Launch.

          Comments about Racer ST 5:

          This is the best racing flat I have had. I switched to the Racer ST 5 after racing in the T7. I liked the T7's because of their weight but I didn't like the curved platform. I use these for tempo runs, some track work, and racing. I race everything from 5k up to a marathon in these flats. The only aspect I would change would be the weight. I wish they would lighten them up a little bit. Other than that this shoe is great! I just brought the new yellow model because they look so cool and will be debuting them in the USA National Capital Marathon in March!

          Comments about Racer ST 5:

          I bought my first pair of ST5's for short races when I was used to bulkier shoes, compared to which they seem like racing flats. When I moved to real racing flats, the ST5's became my speed workout shoes. Later still I started using them primarily for tempo runs. Now I'm on my second pair and use them for tempos and longer races (20k to marathon). I normally prefer a lower heel drop, but I appreciate the bigger heel when running faster and the extra support (without extra weight) in later miles. In my opinion these are superior to the Pure Flows, which feel clunkier at tempo pace. I often use Pure Flow's for slower, easy running because of the lower heel and reserve my ST5's for faster stuff.

                  I use the racer day to day from easy runs to track workouts and long tempo runs. A great shoe for the heavier speedwork and tempo loads. I just wish Brooks would stick to the same laces. These current seem to loosen significantly even with double knots. Love the Mogo midsole and the new tread outsole grips a ton better on wetter surfaces.

                  Thanks for all you do Brooks!

                      Absolutely love this shoe. I have over 500 miles going on a couple pairs right now.

                      This shoe is very versatile. Using it as a racing flat is a gimme, but it is surprisingly durable and supportive for longer runs on and off the trail.

                      They've performed marvelously for me on all sorts of terrain including a 57-mile mountain ultra. I wouldn't recommend them for gnarly downhill trails, but they really do well on just about any other trail condition.

                      Plenty of support for marathons and beyond on the roads, too. They aren't as light as the Green Silence or T7s, but that extra-bit of weight really shines in the form of a bit of extra support when the miles are clicking away.

                      I highly recommend them.

                        Not too high off the ground. Plenty of space in the toe box to avoid blisters/black toe nails. Light weight... so great for long runs. A very small amount of support for over pronators, but not too much. Provides cushioning but is not gooey. A good marathon choice if you need more shoe than a racing flat provides. You may want to order it a half size larger than some of your other shoes.

                        I have been quite pleased with them. I'm ordering another pair tonight.

                          Great Shoe! I had the ST 4's but I think the ST 5's are better due to the increased traction, the better colorway, and they're 0.2 ounces lighter than the ST 4's! Great for training! Perfect for anyone who is a mild over-pronator looking for a lightweight training shoe with a touch of support...
