These are the perfect shoes for middle distance runners

I got these after running through my Launch 4s, which were the first running shoes I ever tried that did not cause me injuries. My running splits got faster with the Launch 5s! I think its due to the incredible support. I personally love the a good, solid kickback on a shoe. The hard soles make them last a while.

Brooks trump all.

I run almost everyday of the week, generally 3-4 miles. I first bought Brooks last year and I LOVE them. They are light, supportive, comfortable, and durable (for the most part). I put heavy wear on my old ones over the last year and a half and they did begin to tear; however, I bought another pair because I was so pleased with them. I doubt I will ever buy another brand of running shoes. Brooks…

Great Shoes

I wore them on an epic 14 mile// 33,000 step day-trip to Disney World and felt comfortable all-day. My feet and heels did not ache by the end of the trip. These shoes are great. Bought 2 pairs; one for gym/general wear and one pair for work, as I am on my feet alot during the day.

Just what I needed

I started running less than a year ago, and I have been more than ready for new shoes for a while now. It took me a while to make a decision on what I wanted, but I am so glad I chose Brooks.

I started running less than a year ago, and I have been more than ready for new shoes for a while now. It took me a while to make a decision on what I wanted, but I am so glad I chose Brooks. This is the first shoe I have had in a long time that hasn't given me blisters or pain. They are light, super comfortable, and cute too. I took the online assessment to find the right shoe for my needs and made sure to order a half-size up from what I normally wear and they are perfect! Read More

My favorite shoe. Comfortable with support, great-fitting.

I already owned Launch 3 and finally decided to get new ones - I purchased a Launch 5 and loved them. I ordered 2 more so that if they moved up to a Launch 6 too fast I'd have extra 5s.

Will you offer the red white and blue again in a 9 women's? Or can I buy it somewhere else?

Text "LTDShoes" to 33233 and we will notify you when limited shoes are released.

Hi! I loved the launch 2 and trained for a marathon in them. After I bought the Launch 3, but they are just not the same. This turned me away and I have been searching for a comparable shoe to the Launch 2 ever since. How do the 5's compare? Any other suggestions on shoes similar to the Launch 2?

Hello, I am very interested in the Boston Launch 5. I have 3 previous pairs of brooks and absolutely love them. I was wondering if this show and style will ever be available in women's wide sizes? I appreciate your help! ~Jackie

Hi Jackie! Unfortunately, we aren't currently planning on making the Launch in wide widths. Brooks Running

I run with the adrenaline. I'm wanting to try the launch. Are they similar shoes?

Hi Casey! They are quite different because the Laucnh is a lightweight neutral trainer that doesn't offer as much cushion underfoot. The GTS has a lot of cushion and support for pronation. If you are looking for something a little lighter you should check out the Ravenna 9! Brooks Running Read More

I usually wear a 11.5 in the Ghost and other shoes, but the Launch is 11 or 12. Do you suggest getting a 12? I am a shamrock fanatic and would really like this pair of shoes, but I don't want a shoe that is not going to be a good fit. Suggestions...

We recommend going with the larger size if your between sizes. Brooks running shoes tend to run on the smaller side.
