The Launch 8 and GTS 8 are for runners who want a lightweight running shoe with a fast, fun ride. Durable enough for training but light enough for race day, this running shoe is designed to keep up on every run.

Check out the neutral Launch 8 if you don’t need added support for your stride. Or, choose the supportive Launch GTS 8 — GTS stands for Go-To Support — featuring GuideRails® technology. Located in the midsole and engineered with your knees in mind, GuideRails support in a running shoe keeps excess movement in check.

For a speed running shoe with support features, check out our Men's Launch GTS 8 and Women's Launch GTS 8, but if you do not need the support features of the GTS shoe - check out our lightweight Men's Launch 8 and Women's Launch 8.
