These are great for me and I love them! Brooks are the only shoes that help my feet and legs seeing I have MS.

My 2nd pair

I wore a pair of Launch 4 before at a running store and enjoyed them. I was fitted with 3D technology so it's all true to size. The Launch 5 were a great deal on the Brooks website. I'm happy with these and really enjoy all Brooks gear and apparel. I was an ASICS devotee but may now be a convert.

Lightweight and nimble

I usually use Ghosts, but switched it up and tried a lighter shoe. These feel faster. More nimble and quicker feeling. So far just shorter runs under 5 miles.

Good cushioning on the Ghosts, but with the Launch, you feel the ground a lot more under your fore-foot. The heel still feels…

Good cushioning on the Ghosts, but with the Launch, you feel the ground a lot more under your fore-foot. The heel still feels cushioned. Nice and snug around my foot with no annoying play. At this point, I'll use Launches for 10k and under, but go with the Ghosts for longer runs. Read More
