The Launch 6 received updates to both the upper and the midsole of the shoe to offer a faster and more responsive feel in your runs.
We recommend staying with the same size in Brooks when trying the Launch 6. The upper of the Launch 6 has been updated to offer more volume within the forefoot compared to that of the Launch 5. The Launch 6 also features an update in the fit to help keep your heel secure during the run.
Cushioning has been increased under the forefoot compared to the Launch 5. The Transition Zone was updated to create a faster transition from heel-to-toe. With the added cushion the Launch 6 weighs the same as the Launch 5 and features the same great 10mm drop with a medium/high arch.
