The design team at Brooks made several slight adjustments moving from the Ghost 10 to the Ghost 11, the most notable of which are a softer feel under the heel and a smoother ride to toe-off. Every aspect of the shoe was rethought, and while small changes were made throughout, the shoe should remain true to the classic performance of the Ghost model.
The core update to the Ghost 11 is the addition of DNA Loft foam in the heel, which works with with the BioMoGo DNA midsole to soften the landing without compromising responsiveness or durability. Designers also updated the underfoot experience with segmented crash pads for a smoother, adaptive ride.
Modifications to the outsole rubber are intended to keep the ride smooth while still providing the necessary durability for getting in the miles on the roads.
The upper is constructed with a new engineered mesh that has targeted stretch zones for areas that need it, and less elastic areas for improved support in areas that don’t. The updated heel counter should also provide a more secure, comfortable fit.
