Comments about Mens Brooks Launch 2 Running Shoe:

Very comfortable shoe. I average 35-45mi/wk. Use on manicured trails and pavement. I got a minor blister on my achilles with the first few runs but broke them in soon after. Light enough for speed work outs and comfortable enough for long runs.

Excellent shoes for daily use and for running

By randy

Comments about Mens Brooks Launch 2 Running Shoe:

This is a lay person's description of the Launch 2: coming from numerous iterations of the glycerine series of shoes (I wear custom orthotics for all of my shoes just FYI 2/2 crazy over pronation), the launch, IMO are what I needed from the Nike Frees to be to be tolerable cushion/support wise - so that I could wear them daily and also so I could run with them. Granted, the launch 2 may not be as light as the free/may not have been marketed to serve the same function, but the launch 2 are excellent from a light weight perspective and cushioning/fit perspective. They're excellent so I purchased a second pair for when my current pair wears out. Excellent fit (1 - 1/2 size larger than my glycerine size, ample cushioning/excellent fit for running, but also light enough for daily use at work where I'm on my feet all 8 hours of my day +/- 1-2 hours.

Perfect Neutral Trainer

By Runningman

from Sacramento, CA

Comments about Mens Brooks Launch 2 Running Shoe:

This shoe just feels right. The second you put it on your first thought will be "how did I live without these?" DNA midsole is well cusioned but resonsive - not squishy. Upper locks foot into place without being restrictive and breaths well. Balanced under foot with smooth transitions. I've been an Asics runner for years and am a full convert. After 3 weeks in my first pair I bought another out of fear Brooks will discontinue or change this model. Try one on and you'll be hooked.

      Comments about Mens Brooks Launch 2 Running Shoe:

      I've been running more or less daily for over 40 years. Lots of 75-85 mile weeks back in the day. Been through a LOT of shoes in all those miles and I can honestly say I can't recall any shoe impressing me like this one does. Ever. I know every foot is different, but these sure work for me. Good fit, good cushioning, good flexibility, a truly neutral shoe. Only two concerns: Will it be durable? and how soon will Brooks discontinue it?

      True Trainer bliss

      By Southern Runner

      from Lake, MS

      Comments about Mens Brooks Launch 2 Running Shoe:

      Bought these after a brief time run testing the 1st Launch. Loved the 1st on and was excited about the second one. The only hesitation I had was the addition of the dlna. This material is in the Ghost and unfortunately I cannot stand the shoe. The Launch 2 gained some weight and nearly weighs as much as the Ghost but this is a far superior shoe in every way. The comfort of the shoe is excellent if even a little on the soft side. I was concerned that the softness would take away from the snappy nature of it's predecessor. This was not the case and the shoe has a tremendous turnover. I would suggest to Brooks to get rid of the Ghost and keep this shoe instead. Run and enjoy.

      Great Shoes! Great Price

      Comments about Mens Brooks Launch 2 Running Shoe:

      Great Shoes! I pretty much gave up on Brooks shoe for the past 2 years until I saw these. I tried them on at a store, then ordered them as soon as I got home. I've just run a few times in them, but man o man...I love these. Thank you Brooks for trying new things, but most importantly, thanks for getting back to what you're really great at...Awesome, affordable, mile eaters...Great Shoe, You should at least try them on. I think you'll really like them.

      • soft upper
      • Very Bright Visibility

      Cons

      Best Uses

      • Long distance training
      • Racing
      • Short Distance Training

      Comments about Mens Brooks Launch 2 Running Shoe:

      My first thought after trying these on and walking around the room was "Wow! These are so comfortable. I love them!" I ran 4.5 miles the next day, and then a 16-mile run the following day. The discomfort I had been experiencing with my previous running shoe was gone. The Launch 2 is a shoe that I could run in forever.

      I haven't experienced a lot of different running shoes, but one thought I had was that I wouldn't consider the Launch 2 a "lightweight" running shoe. It's not heavy, but it's not super light either. For me it's not a problem at all. It certainly isn't noticeable when I am running.

      For short distance racing, I might try a racing flat like the Brooks T7 Racer.

      The Brooks Launch 2 is the best running shoe that I have ever owned.

      Even better than the original

      By Scubaj

      from Corpus Christi, TX

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about Mens Brooks Launch 2 Running Shoe:

      I loved the first Launch and this one is even better. The upper has been upgraded and they are maybe a little softer under foot. Out of box did 6 miles with no issues followed by a 20 miler a few days later and they were perfect! Not a single issue. They are sized normal in my opinion, and I prefer a loose toe box. I could not be more happy with these shoes!

        I have heard from several of my running friends that the Brooks Launch was a great shoes for any distance. I saw that they Launch was getting an update and I decided to give it a try and it is AWESOME. The shoes is very light but you still fit securely in the upper. I have heard people say the shoe feel "fast" and it has a noticeable bounciness to it! I plan to train and race in this shoe for the spring time and I am super excited.
