I don't care if this review stands out

Does are what I expected for cushioning and weight but they definitely run about a quarter to a half size long.

Not near as good as previous year models

I've been buying the Launch since 2017. They've always been my go to for short fast runs. These shoes are decreasing in quality with every model. They're still lightweight and comfortable but they don't have the cushion and spring that previous models did. They look super cool and are a great everyday sneaker but if you're looking for the spring and response that this model used to have I would look elsewhere.

Fit was perfect. Great cushion. Would like more options in wide shoes. Out of the dozens of shoe styles the wide styles and availability is few and far between. Please make more wide sizes in different styles and colors!

Great shoe and great service

Nils 1 year ago Verified Purchase

Very light and sturdy. Provides easy slip on and very comfortable. I’ve already put 90 miles on them and not one problem or concern.
