[Looking for the latest version? The women's Brooks Launch GTS 9 is available now.]

Forget those clunky, old-school stability shoes—the women's Brooks Launch 8 GTS gives you holistic support in a smooth-riding, lightweight package.

Brooks designed the Launch 8 GTS with its GuideRails support system. The innovative technology supports your natural stride while eliminating excessive movement.

A lightweight BioMoGo DNA midsole maintains the Launch’s scant weight, while a new mesh upper improves ventilation and delivers a comfortable, precise fit.

With a durable blown rubber outsole that creates quicker transitions, the women's Brooks Launch GTS 8 provides the support you need with speed you demand.

Great Treadmill shoe

Love these for running on the treadmill! Great support but not too much cushion so I can still "feel the ground." Super comfortable, didn't have to break them in.

great upgrade from pure connect

The last pair of Brooks runners I owned were a pair of Pure Connects I first purchased in 2012. I loved how lightweight, cushy, and quick to dry they were. Now that I've worn them down to the foam and my ankles have weakened from years of field sport, I put a lot of thought into which new design to go with. The Launch GTS 8's had great reviews so I decided to give them a go. Although they are light overall, they're still a bit heavier than the Pure Connects were. The stability and cushion, however, serve me much more and are a great tradeoff for where I'm at now physically. I'm still in the process of wearing them in, but haven't had any issues with aching feet. Plus, they look cute. I'm happy with my new runners and hope they last me over the next decade.
