Comments about Womens Brooks Launch Running Shoe:

I first used Launch when I started running 2 years ago, but I moved on to Brooks Pure Flow when Launch became unavailable. I recently had to return my last pair of Pure Flow 3s due to the tongue digging in and bruising the top of my foot. I was pleased to see the Launch was back and ordered these as a replacement. What a sweet reunion. After a 3 mile test run, I took them out for a 20-miler. I had NO issues with blisters or foot discomfort, which would be common for me after such a long distance. Launch gives a little more room for the swelling that is inevitable with long runs as compared to the Pure Flow. I am so glad they are back and I am considering ordering a couple pair to stockpile in case they discontinue these shoes. My only criticism is the limited color choice.

    Comments about Womens Brooks Launch Running Shoe:

    I am so glad Brooks decided to re-launch the Launch. I fell in love with the original only to have it disappear. I ran in Asics Nimbus for years of running/training for marathon plus road events. Recently, I found my love of running waning, so decided to transition to lighter shoes for a change. I tried just about all of the light ones, and did like the Brooks PureFlow. However, I have minimal arthritis in my right ankle and noticed the neutral heel/ankle angle did not allow me to run as many pain-free miles. I found my answer in the Launch. It had the right heel height, cushioning, and lightness comgination to put some miles in without pain. For now, I average 7-8 miles/ 3-4 times a week on the road (also a gym rat & we have had a long winter in WI). The Launch is light, has a bit of traction, just a little heel height, and has put fun and energy back into running. And, I love the color!! I am seriously thinking about doing some distance again. Brooks, thanks for listening and putting fun back in my run.

      Comments about Womens Brooks Launch Running Shoe:

      Wore these a couple of years ago. Tried about 25 shoes since but came back. Have fairly wide foot and these fit like a dream. Will use these for longer ones and use more minimal for shorter. Flexible enough with nice cushioning yet still lightweight. Glad they didn't do away with this shoe especially since the new pureflow line was so disappointing. Just wish brooks would come out with some decent colors!

        Comments about Womens Brooks Launch Running Shoe:

        I am SOOOO glad to see that RRS is once again selling Brooks Launch. This shoe is by far the best shoe I have ever run in. My foot rolls so naturally and comfortably when I run in these. I always use it for races up to half marathon distance, and it has resulted in 2 PBs for me. Although I train in Neutral+ shoes for the extra cushioning for my Plantar Faciitis these work fine for my racing and speed workouts. I love the new 'tropical' colors. Thank you Brooks for making the perfect shoe.
