How do I wash my new Levitate running shoes that I love? I spilled dirty floor washing water on them at work. Ugh! Thank you!

Thank you for contacting Brooks Running. We recommend following these directions to keep your shoes looking and performing their best. 1. Remove the internal liner and hand wash the shoes in warm water with mild soap. Make sure not to submerge or soak the shoes in water. We do not recommend using a washer or dryer machine for cleaning our shoes, as they can be too aggressive and cause the shoes to stretch or warp compromising the materials and performance of the shoe. 2. Stuff your shoes with newsprint (plain if you have it) and allow them to air dry. When they are all dried out, you can reinsert the liner and hit the road again. Brooks Running Read More

I usually run in Ravennas. But from the reviews, I have read the Ravenna 9 does not have as much mid-sole support, so I was looking for an alternative and have heard great things about levitate. I know that there is a weight difference in these two styles, but would this be a good shoe to try?

I am training to run a half marathon and I am stuck between the ghost 10 and the levitate. Which one would be better. I do have a high arch. Right now I own a pair of revels and they hurt my feet during long runs.

Both shoes are designed for medium to high arches. It really depends on the experiencing you prefer. The Levitate is firmer than the Ghost, but is much more responsive. The Levitate provides great energy return. It will feel much springier, while the Ghost will feel softer. Brooks Running Read More

Are the Limited Edition colors the same weight as the regular Levitates? It looks like they have a leather loop on the collar padding. Are these just as functional for running?

Hi Meg! Yes! They are just as functional as the original levitates! Brooks Running
