Comments about Womens Brooks Launch 4 Running Shoe:

Stability in the heel and cushion all around on the sole minus right underneath the toes. However, that lack of cushioning (and trust me, it's obvious) seems to be intended to allow the shoe to have a more responsive ride. This shoe is not built for use of 300+ miles though. I suggest swapping them out by 225 miles total, but for the price... it's not that big of a deal. They definitely run smaller than before though so beware if you were almost touching the tip/front of the Launch 3, your toes will definitely hit the Launch 4.

Comments about Womens Brooks Launch 4 Running Shoe:

I've been a long time Asics fan and like a lot of cushoining. The Brooks Launch 4 has the cushion but is still lightweight and responsive. I'll keep wearing my Asics Gel Flux to train but the Brooks Launch may be my new race shoe.

Great Shoe for middle distance runners

By Timothy

from undisclosed

Comments about Womens Brooks Launch 4 Running Shoe:

My daughter runs XC and had a pair of Ghost 8. She switched to the Launch 4 and found it to be comfortable and light. Great shoe for people who are looking for a minimalist feel and run under 20 miles a week. Her mileage is quite a bit higher and found the shoe to break down after about 3 months. She's switching back to Ghost's but her impression of the Launch was very favorable

Best shoes ever

By Joanna

Comments about Womens Brooks Launch 4 Running Shoe:

Amazing, very comfortable and light shoes. These are perhaps my favorite running shoe that I have owned so far. I did go with the 1/2 size larger recommendation which I was skeptical about because I am usually very consistent in my shoe size but was glad I did as they are a good fit.High quality for the price.

Comments about Womens Brooks Launch 4 Running Shoe:

Great Running shoe!!! Provides a little more support than the launch 3. I am so happy with them! The only thing that ibhavebt experienced yet is how long they will last. They feel like they will last at least the same amount of time ats the launch 3. I will be keeping my fingers crossed!

    Very comfortable lightweight shoe - have done several marathons in this shoe and needed to purchase more before they change the model AGAIN....why do they do that?? Just when I find a great shoe, they change the model and doesn't feel the same....

    Good every day option but could use more cushion.

    By Tammy

    Comments about Womens Brooks Launch 4 Running Shoe:

    I use these in my regular rotation. I use to use brooks all the time. My Mizuno's didn't seem as cushiony as I thought they would so this was a good option. I like the fit but even thought they are rated as more cushion than Wave Rider they feel like less cushion.

    Comments about Womens Brooks Launch 4 Running Shoe:

    Have used these shoes twice so far- once on treadmill and once outside. I love them! Very comfortable with excellent cushioning- and they look awesome too! But DO size up. I used to wear 10 in Brooks several years ago- which was "sizing up" for me at the time. Tried 10's in the Launch and there was no way they were going to work! Had to return and order 10.5's which fit great.

    Comments about Womens Brooks Launch 4 Running Shoe:

    I run 60+ miles per week and go through a lot of running shoes. I love the Launch because it is light and responsive, but there are some definite problems with it. There is a a sharp spot on the upper part of the heel cuff that causes blistering. I have had this on 2 pairs of these. I have actually put duct tape over it because I want to wear these shoes so much. Also, there is a hole in the upper mesh after 1 week of wear and this also has happened on 2 different pairs!
