Women's Shoes Brooks

Brooks Launch GTS 8


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.

Absolutely fantastic shoe! Very light and even wonderful on my longer runs…just tried them for 11 miles. Has just the right amount of support but also very fast. Love them!

Fit like a glove!

Launch GTS8 provide a perfect fit for my feet. I was bummed when I saw the Ravenna11 were no more, but these fit just as well if not better. Wish there were more vibrant color choices though!

Nice Ravenna Replacement

I've been a Ravenna lover for many years, so when Brooks replaced them with the Launch GTS I was afraid I'd not like them or have issues. These are great! I actually like them a little more than my Ravennas I replaced. Small little improvements like the shoe tongue being slightly longer are improvements. Definitely will keep buying these and have made a seamless transition from Ravenna. Great job once again Brooks!

Surprise @ Stability

I discovered this Brooks Launch when I took a friend with ALS to her hair appointment. I had some time so I went into Fleet Feet. I had been wearing Brooks, but wearing a discontinued style that I was buying second hand on line. I was so surprised by the feel of this newer style. It is cushy yet secure. I'm a believer and will stay up with the new advances from here out.

Wonderful Shoes!

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect at first with the Brooks Launch GTS 8, but these shoes have exceeded my expectations! I think my favorite features are how comfortable they are—I never want to take them off! I also love how breathable they are. No more leaving my running shoes to dry for hours after I get back from a run! I even got them wet once accidentally but they were perfectly dry by the time my run was done. Ten out of ten recommend the Brooks Launch GTS 8!
