Support: Unlike other stability shoes, the Launch GTS 8 offers “very mild” support. Experts say that the GuideRails are almost “invisible,” and only work when needed, making the ride adaptive and NOT restrictive.
Fit: It has a performance-oriented fit — very snug in the midfoot and opens up in the forefoot.
Stability: Thanks to the combination of the shoe’s fit, overlays, sidewalls, and wide outsole, experts find the ride very surefooted.
Gusseted tongue: The gussets prevent tongue rotation and promote a more “secure lockdown.”
Upper ventilation: Almost all testers agree that it breathes “great” during hot days and gives enough warmth during winter.
Comfort: Runners attribute this to the shoe’s breathability, roomy toe box, and flexible upper.
