Like the fit and they are very comfortable.
Super comfortable for all day and running!
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.
Shipping prompt, product excellent.
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.
