Comments about Womens Brooks Launch Racing Shoe:

Great fit. Incredibly Light. This is the shoe that made me switch from kayanos. A little wide in the toe-bed (and i have wide feet), but that is overcome by wearing thicker socks. Unfortunately, back to buy my second pair bc the shoe was drained about 2 mos into marathon training. Good news is they are inexpensive (comparatively). Where are the other colors, roadrunner?!

Comments about Womens Brooks Launch Racing Shoe:

Excellent shoe. Great stability and good support for high arches. Perfect for 10k and up thorough the marathon. I would not recommend for a 5k racing flat though. Too heavy.

    Comments about Womens Brooks Launch Racing Shoe:

    Like some of the other reviewers, I've worn ASICS but they've only been "OK" for me, good enough but not great. Using RRS's Shoe Finder I decided to give these a try. Now I know what a great shoe is SUPPOSED to feel like! Super fit for a wider than average foot, lightweight, flexible, great cushioning for a mid-foot striker. I ordered a 1/2 size up per the advice of others - I could have gone either way. I also agree with a previous reviewer that the color scheme is super rad, cool, awesome! I smile every time I put them on. I know color shouldn't really matter but it does. Thank GOD I don't have to wear the boring blue, white, gray models anymore! These have a personality that's out there - just like me. Thanks Brooks!

          These are the dreamiest, lightweight, full cushion shoe I've ever tried. As a mid-foot striker I've been waiting for a shoe that has moderate heel cushioning and substantial mid-foot cushioning. This is it! They are fast and responsive. The color is rad.

          Comments about Womens Brooks Launch Racing Shoe:

          When I've been fitted for running shoes in the past, I have been told I need neutral support. This shoe provides that, plus I feel light while I run and don't have to worry about the way my shoes feel. I love them!
