[Looking for the latest version? The men's Brooks Launch 9 is available now.]
The men's Brooks Launch 8 delivers a quick ride with a lightweight feel to take you from the first day of training through the finish line of your next race.
Designers built the Launch 8 on top of Brooks’ lightest BioMoGo DNA midsole. The featherweight foam keeps ounces to a minimum while also providing enough cushion for a soft underfoot feel.
Beneath the foam, Brooks added a burly blown rubber outsole to create snappy transitions and improve the shoe’s durability. On top, a new mesh upper gives the Launch a better fit and enhanced ventilation to keep you cool and comfortable.
Whether you’re in training mode or lining up for a race, the men's Brooks Launch 8 is a proven performer in a lighter package than ever before.
Need stability? Check out the men's Brooks Launch 8 GTS for the same lightweight ride with Brooks’ GuideRails support.

These as opposed to other brooks I gave treed run narrow. Also the tongue is too narrow barley covers the sides of my arch. Would not buy again
I have not worn Brooks in years. I've been going back and forth between NB and On. The Brooks Cheetah was my favorite shoe. Unfortunately it was discontinued. BUT the Launch 8 has the same feel for me. Really lightweight with great cushion. I definitely feel that these would be great race shoes too. I'm really happy with these Brooks. I am adding to my rotation.
I am on the heavier side so i usually prefer beefier shoes (think old school New Balance). These are surprisingly solid given the relative weight reduction. Price point is nice as well
