Like the fit. Shoes aren't stiff think other brands.

Sizing Feels true to size
Width Feels too narrow

Good for running, but....

I like these shoes, but I had the Ghost 10 prior to these shoes and I wish that I got those running shoes again! These running shoes (Launch 5) are great for running, but feel smaller and tighter and not as comfortable as the Ghost 10.

Sizing Feels half size too small
Width Feels too narrow

What does medium arch mean?

2019/02/04 Memphis, TN Tray

The Launch 5 is designed for Med-High arches.

I am debating between the launch 5 and the ghost. I have a bunion on my right foot. Which shoe is recommended for my problem? Thanks.

2019/02/01 Virginia Wmily

We recommend the Ghost 11 because it has more cushion and a wider toe box.

Hi, I no longer have the receipt on shoes I received, but I need a larger size. How can I exchange for a larger size?

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.
