Top Reasons to Buy the Women’s Brooks Launch 5

Thanks to the one-piece mesh upper and internal bootie, you’ll barely notice you’re wearing shoes at all. The soft material of the Launch 5 will leave your feet feeling energized instead of exhausted every time you step out the door for a training session.

Reach new heights with the exceptionally springy BIoMoGo DNA midsole. Your push-offs will be more powerful than ever and the energy return upon impact will fuel your strides as you whizz past the competition every time.

Stay light on your feet with a specially designed Midfoot Transition Zone that guides you from toe-off to heel-strike more efficiently than prior iterations.

What People Are Saying About the Women’s Brooks Launch 5

Several women praised the Launch 5 for being a quick and quiet shoe that performed beautifully across short distances and long marathons alike. One reviewer dubbed it the "Swiss army knife" of running shoes.

Runners felt that the flex grooves on the outsoles enhanced their gait cycle and allowed them to flow through a more natural pattern of movement than shoes with a less-flexible platform.

Hit the streets in style with the variety of different color schemes offered for the Launch 5. Many women said they liked how this pair of kicks expertly combined aesthetics with athletics into one eye-catching package.

Women’s Brooks Launch 5 Updates

Known for their exceptional craftsmanship, Brooks doesn’t disappoint with the fifth iteration in the Launch lineup. This sleek pair of shoes offers a better air circulation system for increased comfort, dual rubber technology strategically placed in the outsole to decrease abrasion, and thinner support systems that decrease overall bulk while keeping the feet locked firmly into place.

Size and Fit of the Women’s Brooks Launch 5

General Size and Fit

The Launch 5 features a heel-to-toe drop of 10mm and comes in a women’s normal width. Fit experts recommend going a half size up from your true foot size.


In addition to the silky smooth mesh material, a cushioned tongue enhances the running experience by keeping the top of the foot comfortable and stable from start to finish.


A segmented crash pad allows the Launch 5 to absorb the shock of each impact and disperse it across the shoe to deliver a smooth ride that lets you glide across the pavement.


Grip the ground with confidence thanks to the lightly textured rubber outsoles that offer enough traction to get you through your training session with ease.
