    My son loved these the moment he put them on!

    2017/05/11 | Athens, AL |

    My son who is 12 needed a shoe with med to high arches as his feet were starting to bow in and complain of foot and ankle pain... because of terrible shoe support. I decided to try brooks. I have a pair and love them. He does a lot of running around and playing with kids at school or in the neighborhood. He loved them and could tell a difference the moment he put them on. He hasn't complained about the pain since!!

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    My go to shoe for tempo and long runs.

    2017/05/08 | Anderson, SC |

    For me it's a good compromise between some cushion and being light and responsive.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    So close to perfect

    2017/04/28 | OKC, OK |

    I absolutely love everything about this shoe EXCEPT for the unusually high (or curved?) heel cup. The cushioning is great, the shoes fit like a glove, and my body--hips, knees, ankles--feels great after a run. But man there is something funky going on in the achilles area. One run and I had *shredded* the skin over both achilles tendons. This seems to be a problem that other online reviewers have noted as well. I'm really hoping there's some easy fix (maybe a little trim with some scissors?) because I would love to be able to keep using these shoes.

    Failure to Launch

    2017/04/25 | Albuquerque, NM |

    I have logged an average of 30 miles per week, with summer peaks in 50-60 mile range, for the last five years -- every single mile has been in a pair of "on-sale" Brooks. For the first time in my running career, I find myself in total agony in a pair of trainers right out of the box. Was persuaded by a review claiming the Launch was similar to the Ghost (a model I've logged 1000's of miles in the last couple of years). Not even close. The Launch is a failure to launch.

    Favorite Running Shoe!

    2017/04/24 | Altoona, IA |

    I love the Launch series! I've used this series for the last year and a half and have gone through 5 pairs. Each pair lasts me about 500 miles and could probably last longer but prefer around the 500 mile range. They're an extremely versatile shoe handling long runs well and speed work equally well. The balance between responsiveness and cushion is perfect. I love these shoes and do not plan on switching!

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Love the Launch Series

    2017/04/22 | New Jersey |

    I got the Launch 2's last year and this year I got the Launch 3's for the upcoming track season. They are great shoes and feel amazing to run in. However they do tend to wear quickly, not the sole which is amazing but rather the insole can get a little compacted and the outer mesh can tear. Keep in mind I don't go easy on these shoes but I've had my newest pair for 2 months now and they are wearing down a little. Overall, an amazing shoe that I strongly recommend for most activities.

    Love em!

    2017/04/21 | Seattle, WA |

    Training for my second marathon and really loving my long runs in these shoes. I have been running in Adrenalines for a while, but these are giving me an extra boost of confidence with the light weight and springing soles.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    comfortable running shoe

    2017/04/20 | Philadelphia, PA |

    Very comfortable shoe. This is my first pair of Brooks. I was looking for a more comfortable alternative to Nike or Asics. Although some of the color patterns could be improved, the shoe is great to wear and great for running. I have only logged about 30-40 miles over a few weeks so far, so I can't comment about durability yet, but so far so good.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Launch 2 was better

    2017/04/20 | Iowa |

    I had two pair of the Launch 2 and marathoned in that version. The Launch 3 does not have as much cushion under foot, particularly the forefoot and feels more narrow through the toebox. Brooks is too quick to update great shoes ...
