The short version of this review is that the Brooks Launch 6 is an excellent shoe that costs less than £ 100 and is suitable for all types of runs, from quick short sessions to easy long runs. But to keep it that way, one would not say how great a shoe is, because there are only a few shoes that find the balance between speed, cushioning and durability just as successful as the Launch 6
Launching several similar shoes in the Allrounder mount, such as the Saucony Ride ISO and the Nike Pegasus 35, although it is lighter than both popular shoes with 255g (men who vary slightly depending on size), and is more affordable. Although both the Ride and the Pegasus 35 are good shoes and I liked the soft and springy feel of the Ride, the launch is a more versatile shoe that impresses especially in tempo training.
Whenever I discuss a shoe Try to use it for a week or two in different workouts, wear it on the racetrack, at tempo runs and for a lot of easy running. Most of the time, this is far from ideal for my training. Lightweight racers are uncomfortable on carefree days and highly padded shoes that romp during the speed work. In my test of Launch 6, however, I had no problem before each training session. The Brooks BioMoGo DNA midsole provides a firm, yet smooth ride that lets you speed up and slow down without the launch slowing you down or providing you with enough support.
The allrounder shoe I & # 39; I've tried it, the only one that matches or surpasses the launch in terms of foot feel is the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo, which costs £ 1
Not so often, because the launch is a shoe known for its durability, and the sixth edition should last even longer than its predecessors under the forefoot, thanks to the added foam. I can not really speak for this consistency because I only covered 80 kilometers in the starting lap, but so far there is no sign of wear.
There are still a few drawbacks to using an all-rounder like the starting line, instead of spinning through two or three pairs of shoes for different runs and races. It's not as appealing as a pure racer like the Brooks Hyperion or the Pacific Nike Zoom Fly Flyknit or as wonderfully plush as a padded shoe like the Saucony Triumph ISO or Brooks glycerine lines – but it covers all of this superbly without Basen significant weaknesses. And that for £ 95, which is not exactly "cheap", but it's certainly a great value in the world of running shoes.
