I like them but they're not the Ghost

I like these, you can tell they are Brooks, but they do not compare to the Ghost, which is the BEST SHOE ever! But these will definitely do!

Misunderstanding in sizes

I ordered it being in Moscow to my friend who travelled to NYC. Before this I bought Brooks in Europe and my size is 39, thats why I ordered size 9 in US but it turned out that US size 9 is EUR size 40,5. I was very upset and had to present it to a colleague with the bigger size. If you could make a delivery to Russia, Id be happy to order shoes one more time but with the correct size.

Best running shoes I've ever worn

These shoes are very comfortable while running. Shock to knees seems to be mitigated. Very comfortable. I would buy these again.

37 Questions

how does this compare with the Levitate? my shoe simpy says Levitate, not 2 thank you!

2019/01/15 North Carolina DeeDee

They are both in the energize category. The launch 5 is lighter although the Levitate will provide better energy return.

How do these compare to the Ghost? Specifically the toe box and cushioning. I've tried the Adrenaline GTS but I find the toe box too constricting. Are these any better?

2019/01/15 TN Shannon

The Ghost will offer a wider toe box and more cushion.

I always wear a Ghost because of the wider toe box. How is the toebox in the launch 5 tie dye compare?

2019/01/14 Pinckney Michigan Lynne

The Ghost will have a slightly wider toe box.

I'm looking for a running shoe that works well with collapsible arches( I pronate) The launch 5 came up as the best shoe. However, my feet are pretty wide, and after reading I see that this shoe isn't the best for wide feet! What would be the best choice for both of my issues?

2019/01/12 Cleveland OH V

The Adrenaline GTS 19 is a great support option for pronation. They are available in wide if you need some extra room.

I need a wide shoe. What do you recommend

2019/01/02 NC Terri

Unfortunately the Launch 5 is not available in wide. The Ghost 11 is a great option!
