I Wasn't a Runner Until I Got These

I always thought I hated running, but these shoes made me realize what a drastic difference a great pair of shoes can have on your athletic ability. I'm up to 3-5 running days a week and I'm looking at getting a second pair. Highly recommend these shoes!

Light and springy

I am very pleased with this shoe. It is very light and fun to run in, but my foot feels supported. I usually wear a 10, but I need a wider toe box. I went up half a size and they fit perfectly.

Love them!

I use these for my Orangetheory class and feel like they're a great all around shoe! My only complaint is that after having and using them less than a month the material that lines the shoe around the heel has started pilling and shows dirt easily where it extends on the exterior of the shoe. Definitely not a deal breaker for me cause I don't mind wiping it off with a damp rag and the pulling is…

I use these for my Orangetheory class and feel like they're a great all around shoe! My only complaint is that after having and using them less than a month the material that lines the shoe around the heel has started pilling and shows dirt easily where it extends on the exterior of the shoe. Definitely not a deal breaker for me cause I don't mind wiping it off with a damp rag and the pulling is more likely due to my socks than anything else. Definitely will be buying these again in the future! Read More

I love my new Brooks

I can't believe how comfortable my new brooks are and it fit true to size. No more knee or back pain, I highly recommend.

Interested in the women's special edition of the rock and rock roll running shoe in size 8. Are they still available.?

The are currently available on www.runrocknrollstore.com. Thank you!

I recently purchased the Launch 5 running shoes! I have been breaking them in for several weeks now but after every use my midfoot (both feet) has alot of pain. Is it possible that I don't have the right size or maybe something else? Thanks!

Why did you stop making the holiday shoes (shamrock, July 4, and Christmas) in the Launch 5? I have the shamrock in the Launch 5 and since that purchase I have not run in any other brand (I have a lot of running shoes). I did buy the Christmas shoe (ugly Christmas sweater) which was not the Launch 5 and it very stiff with a hard sole. Keep the Launch 5 alive and bring in new color schemes.
