Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snug fit, comfortable, but heel a bother I love the snugness of this shoe. The sole is comfortable, but it is not "over inflated" as I feel many other shoes are these days. Many shoes give me a bouncy feeling. This shoe feels like it connects me with the ground. This was also the reason why I loved my pair of Launch 2 I bought last year. Launch 4 is very similar. The main difference for me is the heel. The heel on Launch 4 gave me a blister walking for 30 minutes so unfortunately it did not fit my foot. Still I believe this is an excellent product, just not for my foot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the Right Fit I bought these shoes less than a month ago. Never used this brand before and was excited... Sorry to say the fit was not right. I gave it several tries but my soles would burn and then my knees started hurting... Sooo bummed I like the comfort i felt initially but when i started to encrease my running they started to kill me :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and good fit I don't run but I do walk a lot. As soon as I tried these on at REI I knew they were the shoes for me. They are very comfortable and fit well. I have been wearing them for several weeks and I'm happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly comfortable shoe! Great sneaker and less expensive than the Glycerin or Ghost that I've purchased in the past. Based on my arch and support this shoe fits the bill. Extremely comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfy for running I'm so happy I bought these shoes I'm a picky person when it comes to running shoes. They worked out for me and I haven't had any problems with my Bunyan. Thank you REI

Does anyone know if these fit similar to Brooks Ghost series?

Asked by: CascadianCritter
The Ghost has more cushioning compared to the Launch. Both will have the same fit in terms of length and width. We recommend ordering the same size as the Ghost.
