On the hunt for bouncy running shoes? Get the most out of every stride thanks to shoes with the best energy return in our line. The men's Levitate 5 features a fit that blends stretch and structure, comfortable breathability, and quick transitions.
I owned the levitate 1’s and recently upgraded to the 5’s. Best running shoes I’ve ever had. I tried the Ghost - it just wasn’t for me - too light and not responsive enough. The DNA amp in the Levitate makes me feel like I could run through the treadmill. I’m a HUGE fan! I love the improvements in the shoe around the heel - it’s super cushioned and comfy!
These shoes feel super responsive at first but the springiness seems to go away almost immediately. The shoe fits kind of like a sock but feels too tight even when loose. I also didn’t feel stable running in these because of how narrow the tread of the shoe feels. I normally run in a Ghost so if you’re looking to venture out I wouldn’t recommend this shoe.
I got these shoes going into my XC season, and I have to say, they are one of my favorite pairs of Brook's I've owned. They feel amazing and have an incredible response on the road. I have put about 310 miles on them at the time of writing this review and they are still holding up like brand new.
