    Didn't work out for me

    2017/05/03 | Nashville, TN |

    I gave these shoes a while to see if I just needed to break them in, but after several weeks, I am sending them back. I am still getting blisters on my heels from them being stiff in the heel, and too snug over all.

    Good shoe but wears fast with holes in fabric

    2017/05/02 | los angeles |

    this is my 3rd pair , i like them because they are light and keep my feet cool but...early on they get holes in the fabric around the toe area both inside and on the outside of both shoes so you are walking around with holes.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Favorite Running Shoes EVER

    2017/05/01 | Seattle, WA |

    The Launch are my most favorite running/gym shoes. They fit perfectly, so comfortable, just enough support but not too much. My feet love them. The one downside (and I've had two pairs now) is they wear quite quickly, within 3-6 months they have holes where my pinky toe is. I do wear them probably 5 days per week working out. I'm ordering my 3rd pair because I have never found shoes more comfortable. They don't have the greatest traction on wet surfaces or trail running, but my other Brooks trail runners work well for those conditions ;).

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Love these!!!

    2017/04/26 | Michigan |

    My daughter raves on Brooks and I've never had a pair. I thought I would splurge plus these were on sale. I loved them so much I bought a different pair. I'm now hooked on Brooks. Love them and I love the fact there is no break in period. Just put them on out of the box and go!

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Love the Launch- want it in every color!

    2017/04/25 | El Paso, TX |

    As an obsessive Adrenaline runner, I was feeling disappointed that after my recent twin pregnancy, my feet had changed just enough and my old standby shoe was not as comfortable. I did a wear tester round of the Ravenna and found it to be a great shoe as I picked up miles and steam- and then I decided to try the Launch. Now, you've created a monster as I want it in EVERY color! Back into ultrarunning this is my go-to shoe!

    Total Disappointment and Injury Inducing!

    2017/04/21 | Jensen Beach, FL |

    I just purchased my third pair of Launch Shoes - and returned them. I had great luck with the Launch 2 Model, so I was excited when I ordered my first pair of Launch 3's and they proved to be good as well. I recently replaced them with the same model/color and started to experience right achilles pain. I am a high-mileage runner, so I thought it may be tendonitis. I took a 3 week break and put my shoes on today for a short run and immediately experienced the same pain. I compared the newest shoe with my last pair and noticed right away that the back of the shoe was significantly higher, and you can even see that the sole is malformed in the back where it attaches to the upper. I sent them back today and for the first time in 7 years bought a running shoe that isn't Brooks :( This isn't the first time that I've had this happen with their shoes. Hopefully, the injury it caused doesn't persist. The picture I'm including shows the new shoe on the left (with the high back), and my previous shoe on the right. I wouldn't recommend ordering online - try them in a store first and compare a few pairs of them.

    It's like walking on clouds! I'm in love!

    2017/04/21 | Mustang, OK |

    I purchased them for the OKC Memorial Marathon, and loved training in them! I haven't ran the marathon just yet, but I have full trust these shoes will be a miracle to my feet.

    Love love love

    I bought these for a marathon and they have been marvelous through the training. They are comfortable and light weight. In fact, I bought a second pair once my mileage broke 200 to have as my race day shoes since I still had several training miles to run. I was disappointed that they seemed to break down earlier than the 300 mile mark but my favorite running shoes to date regardless.

    Yes, I would recommend this!
