Top Reasons to Buy the Men’s Brooks Levitate

Defy gravity with every step once you experience the incredible energy-returning construction of the Brooks Levitate. Designed to give you the most responsive ride possible, the DNA AMP midsole cushioning system adds a spring to your step so you can outpace the competition time after time.

While the Levitate might not let you walk amongst the constellations, you’ll sure feel like a star thanks to the 3D Fit Print Knit upper. This innovative material is highly breathable, flexible, and responds instantly to the movements of your foot – delivering a luxurious barely-there feeling that’s fit for a king.

Follow the path you were born to take with the Levitate’s arrow-point outsole guiding every step. The rubber tread follows the peak pressure path of your foot, encouraging even weight distribution and shock absorption with each stride. You’ll also feel a quicker heel-to-toe transition that lets you go faster and farther than ever before.

What People are Saying About the Men’s Brooks Levitate

Countless reviewers have raved about the exceptional ability of the Levitate to eliminate pain from their daily exercise. Many men noted that it’s the perfect shoe for athletes wanting to get back into shape because the supreme cushioning and springy midsoles energize each step, providing a little extra boost for runners who need a leg up on their conditioning. So, if you’re ready to make the change from couch potato to daily jogger, consider this your sign!

Tired of wearing out your shoes in a matter of months? Reviewers commented that the Levitate is exceptionally durable and resists the typical wear-and-tear that’s common of continual use. The rubber sole and strong diagonal mesh are bonded together to create a sneaker that can ace any test you put it through.

If you’re looking for a shoe that offers both athletics and aesthetics, the Levitate will be a dream come true. Men appreciated the five unique color schemes and said they felt more confident on their runs with a pair of stylish kicks to polish off their performance.

Size and Fit of the Men’s Brooks Levitate

General Size and Fit

The Levitate features an 8mm heel-to-toe drop and is offered in a men’s normal width size. It’s recommended to buy a half size up from your true foot size to ensure the best fit.


Constructed with seamless technology, the 3D Fit Print upper takes your training to new heights as it expands and contracts with each bend and flex of the foot. The diagonal design distributes support evenly across the entire foot, preventing injuries and keeping you steady on uneven surfaces. A little extra padding on the tongue and heel deliver an ultra-plush fit that doesn’t ever feel bulky or distracting. And the icing on the cake? Ventilation perforations throughout the mesh keep you cool no matter how much the competition heats up.


"Perfect" is a strong word, but when it comes to the Levitate’s DNA AMP midsoles, it certainly applies. Instead of dispersing the energy of impact away from the foot, the Levitate shoots it back into your stride so you can feel energized no matter how many miles you put behind you. Don’t worry about damaging your joints – the shock-absorbing material shields your feet from harsh impacts during redistribution. And for additional comfort, the insole is removable and can be replaced with custom inserts.


Head out the door in the morning with confidence when you have the arrow-shaped Levitate outsoles pointing you in the right direction. Designed to guide your gait through an entire cycle, this unique design resists damage in high-wear areas and offers natural flexibility to guarantee top-notch training.
