All-new Launch 8

It’s a fast favorite

The Launch has always been our go-to for a fast, fun ride. Our newest version has the lightweight feel runners love, now with the option of trusted GuideRails® support.

A neon yellow Launch 8 and a light pink Launch GTS 8.

What’s the difference?

The latest Launch, now in neutral or support

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 keeps excess movement in check.
