Brooks Ghost 6 Review

Running can bring you so much joy but if you are having trouble with precision or with posture it can be an uncomfortable painful experience. Just like any other sport or activity using the right tools can make all the difference in the success of the outcome.

Brooks Ghost 6 have been touted as the best running shoes for a host of reasons. Brooks Ghost 6 for flat feet will help to relieve the pain in your knees and feet from running. Brooks Ghost 6 for over pronators will help to keep your ankles safe. This Brooks Ghost 6 review researched all the pros and cons so you can feel confident in the Brooks Ghost 6 for marathon runs and training sessions.

Many runners choose these are their go to shoes for marathons and just as many runners choose these for their everyday shoe because they are that good. These shoes have received accolades from professional runners, magazines and consumer groups for providing superior support, comfort and for looking great while they do it.

Award Winning Shoe

The Brooks Ghost 6 is an award winning shoe! The Brooks Ghost 6 is such an impressive shoe that it won the Editors Award Choice for Runners World Magazine. It won the award for being a very light weight fully cushioned shoe that is perfect for both marathons and everyday wear. They found that since the manufacturer removed the plastic shank and filled the heel with foam the heel strike to toe off was much more fluid. This magazine is the bible of the runner world so winning this award is a pretty prestigious honor for Brooks and the Ghost 6 design team. There have been a few changes from the Ghost 5 that has propelled the line to the top of the chart in the runner’s world.

Roomy Toe Box

The toe box has been redesigned on the Brooks Ghost 6 to add a little more space without making them too wide. They feet the foot like a glove without pinching. There are no inner seams so there is no rubbing to deal with. Of course the roomy toe box is all part of the excellent design that keeps your feet stable while you run.

Specifications 

  • Foam cushioning
  • Mesh upper
  • Full support
  • Range of colors
  • Great price

Since Brooks has taken out the plastic shank in the arch and filled it with foam the ride of these shoes is much more fluid and bouncy. They offer great leg relief when you are running thanks to the added foam. The mesh upper is lightweight and breathable so your feet stay cool and moisture is wicked away. These shoes are built with the over pronator in mind so they offer full support in a lightweight shoe. They come in a full range of colors. They can be had for a great price which makes a nice change from those $200 runners.

What Others Have To Say 

Other runners have no problem explaining their like or dislike for their running shoes so they are always a good source of information when you are considering which shoes may be the right tools for you. The Brooks Ghost 6 are getting rave reviews from all different type of runners. Whether you are an over pronator or a neutral runner these shoes offer all the things you would want in a reliable shoe.

They have gotten very high ratings and recommendations from other runners. One runner said “ I cycle out about 3 or 4 pair of shoes regularly and I use the Brooks Ghost 6 for all my long runs, they are the best marathon shoes I have ever owned” another said “ I have worn them down to the nubs because I wear them everyday, I wear them to run, to shop, to do everything, they are my favorite by far Brooks.”

A runner that was experiencing bad knee paid when they were running said “since the day I put these shoes on my knees have not been bothering, they have improved my form from the moment I slipped them on my feet”.

These shoes come highly recommended from most all users. A couple of users that have very narrow feet did mention that the toe box was a bit too wide for them but once they tightened the laces down the width was no longer a problem.

Ensuring a good fit for very narrow fit may come down to going with a ½ smaller size. Other than the wide toe box no one had anything negative to say about these award winning shoes.

Overall 

Running is a great activity when you have the right shoes. When you have the wrong shoes it can be a miserable, painful experience. The Brooks Ghost 6 are designed so that you will strike right each and every time and have the support you need to perfect your form.

They are excellent on pavement and the track. One runner commented that these shoes are so quiet on the pavement that you are easily able to sneak past other runners because they never hear you coming.

They are comfortable, affordable, well designed and meant to help you perfect your form. You cannot ask for a better shoe. The Ghost 6 will blow the other competition right out of the water. They are an excellent opportunity to really “step up” your running game without the fear of injuries!
