The Ghost 5 is one heck of a shoe. But you don’t have to take our word for it – the folks at Runner’s World voted it an “Editor’s Choice” shoe for the third year in a row. Brooks is simply doing a lot of things right with the Ghost 5, and it’s worth a close look for any neutral runner who loves a great fit and smooth, soft landing mile after mile.
This contest has ended. Congrats to Mark in Washington and Hannah in Ohio, winners of our Brooks Ghost 5 ‘Soft Landing’ giveaway. Thank you to everyone who entered and look for our next contest soon!
Who You Gonna Call?
Through the latest in spectral imaging technology, we were able to capture a picture (at right) of the upcoming Brooks Ghost 5 traveling through the dark of night. This spirit of the underworld is set to have a hauntingly good fit and feel. Don’t expect to be able to run through walls, but do expect additional cushioning and a fresh design for the spookiest shoe in Brooks’ lineup.
So OK, the new Ghost 5 is real and not an apparition. We actually do have some real pics of this shoe – check them out below.
What to Watch For
- Lighter Weight: Published weights for the Ghost 5 are 10.7 oz for Men and 8.8 oz for Women, both lighter than our measurements for the Ghost 4.
- Added Cushioning: The Ghost 5 has more cushioning on the lateral side compared to the prior model.
