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.
Feels true to size
Feels true to width
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
