Origin stories: the Launch
Famous — or infamous? — for bold colors and eye-catching styles, the Launch was introduced in the spring of 2009 as a lightweight neutral trainer with a little extra softness. The name was inspired by our Hanson’s pro team, who would meet at a boat launch to start workouts around a lakefront path. Despite a brief absence from 2012-2014, the Launch was so loved that in 2015, after a vocal group of runners called for the shoe’s return, we introduced the Launch 2.
