The Brooks Ghost 7: Much the Same, But Improved

January 22nd, 2014

Brooks has never been a company to tout crazy new innovative technologies or game-changing ideas. Rather, the company finds success in what it knows best: delivering footwear that simply works. No frills or gimmicks necessary (slightly out-there marketing aside, that is).

Brooks Ghost 6 Sneak Peek

February 22nd, 2013

Brooks Ghost 6 Women's Running Shoes

When our friends at Runner’s World awarded the Brooks Ghost 5 Editor’s Choice last year, we were hardly surprised. The Ghost 5 is a consistent best seller at Running Warehouse, offering a comfortable fit, balanced cushioning, and a silky smooth heel-to-toe ride.

So what does Brooks have in store in terms of changes with the upcoming Ghost 6? Not much. Expect updates to be minimal, mostly to improve upon the shoe’s already excellent transition. After all, it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – right?

What to Watch For

  • Full Ground Contact: Brooks has removed the midfoot shank and filled in the arch area, resulting in full ground contact and a smoother heel to toe transition.
  • Same Great Cushioned Ride: Minimal changes to the midsole mean this shoe will offer the same award-winning cushioning as its predecessor.
  • Unchanged Weight: Brooks lists weights for the Ghost 6 as identical to those of the Ghost 5 – 10.7 oz for Men’s size 9 and 8.8 oz for Women’s size 7.

It’s one of the few chance for running specialty accounts to see all the major players together in one location. The Running Event allows all of us to cover a great deal of ground in a short period of time. This year’s event was held in Austin TX and it was the 3rd time I’ve attended.
