One guess as to what is my favorite brand of running shoes?  🙂  I have worn Mizuno, Newton, Nike, Asics, and Saucony but have been wearing Brooks for all of my runs and races since abot 2017.  

This week’s Tuesday Topic:  Do you have favorite running shoes and why?  You can write about this topic, or feel free to post any running related blog post.  Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida!  Visit at least two of the other linked posts – the more the merrier!  Remember to come back for later linkers!

Right now I have the Ghost 11, the Levitate 1, the Launch 5, and Launch 6.  I like them all and have another pair of the 5 and 6 in boxes.  I wear the Launch 5 for my speed workouts and the others I rotate on my easy runs.  Why do I love them?  I won’t get all technical on you but the main reason is that they’re soft and comfortable.  I also like how they fit.  Each pair has plenty of cushion and provides ample support.  Black shoes are nice but why not get them in wild colors?

I’ve also worn the Glycerin, PureConnect and the PureFlow (another one of my favorites).  The PureConnect and PureFlow are no longer available.  << Correction:  The Pure Flow are still available.  I just realized that I had a pair of the 6 but sent them back because they hurt my calves.  The only “bad” thing about them is that they had to be replaced every 200 or so miles.

New running shoes

The PureConnect 2 was a lightweight shoe but yet provided plenty of support.  I remember running the Goofy Challenge in those shoes.


The PureFlows were perfect.  I loved, loved these shoes.  At one point I bought 4 pairs of shoes from Running Warehouse.  I think I paid about $55 for each pair.  


For sure I will continue to wear running shoes from Brooks.  Right now I buy my shoes from Running Warehouse and love it more when the shoes are on sale.  Running Warehouse provides free shipping and have a great return policy.

Are you a Brooks fan?  What running shoes do you wear?

15 Comments on Tuesday Topics: My favorite running shoes

  1. I’m enjoying my Brooks GTS as well as those Launches. While I need more support than the Launches for long runs, they’re great for racing 5ks!

  2. I’m a new Brooks fan as of this year, lol. I have a pair of the Launch that I use for short runs (nothing over 3 miles). I like the feel but they just don;y give me enough support unfortunately.

  3. I have run in Ghosts on & off for years. I have used the Launch for easy runs, although they didn’t really grow on me. I haven’t tried the Levitate, but hear good things about them.

    Also sad about no more Pureflow. 🙁

  4. Love love love me some Brooks. Two of my top three shoes are Brooks (the Ravenna 10 and pretty much any of the Adrenalines). My third favorite is the Saucony Guide. There is something about the lower drop and the Everrun I really like.
