Brooks Launch 3 M, 432, 1250
The new Launch 3 from Brooks is extremely responsive and optimized for energy return. It has a whisper-soft on-foot feel, thanks to a new 3D Fit Print seamless upper. Major changes from Launch 2 are those printed overlays on the upper. They hug your foot but don’t interfere with forward progress. Below decks, a midfoot transition zone creates fast heel-to-toe transitions. Once on the forefoot, you encounter an energy zone that delivers a springy liftoff. The Launch 3 is a great trainer or even longer racer for the runner with a neutral footstrike. Weights: 9.8 oz. men’s; 7.9 oz. women’s Offset: 10 mm.
