The Brooks Launch, Updated and Improved

The Brooks Launch 7 is a lightweight and responsive trainer from Brooks. It uses their BioMoGo DNA midsole for a well cushioned ride while still giving off the racing flat responsive feeling. For team Accelerate member Jason Ward it has been his go to shoe since it was first released in 2010. Since then he has had a least 2 or 3 pairs of every iteration all the way through to the current version. We caught up with him and he shared his reasons behind why it is one of his favorite shoes. Jason has represented Great Britain on multiple occasions both on the roads and cross country. He has gone sub 29 minutes in a 10k and 4:03 in the mile so getting the right shoe is important for him.

Accelerate “Why do you like the brooks launch and why do you still use them?”

Jason “They are a fantastic shoe, I can use them for anything from some speed work, tempo runs to even my long runs. They are a very versatile shoe.”

Accelerate “Whats the best thing about them?”

Jason “I don’t realise I’m wearing them, they are so lightweight.”

Accelerate “why have you used them for so long”

Jason “They are pretty firm underfoot and the upper is very comfortable the little bit of a raised heel has always been perfect for my running style. I have got at least 2 pairs of every model for the last 5 or 6 years.”
