Fun style, great light running shoe

Fun green and gold coloring for St Patrick's Day, great travel shoe for me - light with support. Easy to pack. May want more support for longer distance runs 5 miles+

Couldn't find a fit

I'm a big fan of the Launch, but the 6 just didn't feel right. My normal size felt at least 1/2 size too big. When trying on a 1/2 size down, it felt too small. I'm not sure if my experience was just an unlucky manufacturing glitch, but I just couldn't get the right fit. Still gave 4 stars as the quality was what you would expect from Brooks.

Great Shoe!

I love the Launch 6! I previously trained in the Brooks Levitate and wanted a faster shoe, and have really enjoyed this one. It's pretty springy, and it feels good on my knees when I am picking up my speed. Very responsive and feels great on the road.

How long or how many miles should I expect to get out of a pair of Brooks Beasts 18?

The life expectancy of our shoes is 300-500 miles, or 4-6 months when used for their intended purpose. Thank you!

Why are there no cool color options for the Launch 6? I love the Launches, but I miss the Boston Lobster editions. The sweet designs were the reason I kept buying the Launches even though I wanted to try other shoes. Now, I am not so sure.

The Limited Editions of the Launch 6 will be releasing in the upcoming months!
