Shoe Review: Brooks Launch

Brooks Launch, $90

So confession: I'm training for a race right now.  A big race.  I've been hesitate to talk much about it because quite frankly I've been terrified since receiving confirmation that I made the lottery, but I am training.  The goal is to finish.  Ner-vous.

That being said, I bought some new shoes a month or so ago and love them.  I went to Luke's Locker and tested a bunch of shoes one Sunday, while wearing a dress.  The shoes specialist assured me he's seen stranger.  My requirements were something lightweight since my Nike Motos were starting to feel very heavy.  I decided on the Brooks despite the bright blue color (You know it was hard for me to buy these knowing there were no other color choices).

I have loved the Launches.  The have made long runs so much easier and my knees and ankles have not bothered me nearly as much during my long runs.

This sounds like the time I went to REI to look for hiking boots in flip flops, a teeny tiny sundress and my hair all done. The guy was like...sureee you can climb a mountain. I'm sure the tennis shoes looked hott with your dress! good luck with the training!
