I have the Brooks Ghost 4, Ghost 5, and now Ghost 6. In comparing the Ghost 5 and 6, the 6 seems more cushy yet supportive. The colors on the 6 are better and the laces are flat style and opposed to the round laces of the 5. The flat laces lay better and don't twist nearly as much. The tongue on the 5 seemed short and too thick compared to the 4 and 6. The sole design of the 6 is more visually appealing than that of the 5. If you're looking for a comfortable shoe that offers cushioning and great arch support right out of the box, look no further. These babies don't need a break in period. They are ready to go when you get them.

This is my 4th pair of Brooks Ghost (started with the 3) and I have absolutely loved all of them right out of the box. The Ghost 6 however I wasn't able to wear at all. I'm not sure what was changed but I knew immediately it was not going to work. The colors are so much better on this shoe so I have been anxiously awaiting the June release date. I have unfortunately gone back to the Ghost 5 until the Ghost 7 is released and I will give it a try.

I just bought the 6's to alternate with the 5's while training for a marathon. I loved the 5's from the start but like the 6's even better. I ran 15 miles in them right out of the box, I seem to land on my forefoot a little easier in the 6's than with the 5's. I'm not a large runner, but I prefer shoes with more support/cushion and my legs and feet feel fresher all week in these. I also like the new lacing system used in this shoe, they feel more snug which I like. Colors are great too!

I have a really hard time finding running shoes that fit well. I have a very short, wide foot and typically wear New Balance running shoes. It was recommended that I try Brooks Ghost since they aren't as heavy as the NB EE shoes that I was running in. I was able to wear Books Ghost 5 in a D width, much to my surprise. I just switched to the Brooks Ghost 6 last week since the differential between the toe and heel height is less than the Ghost 5 (good for me since I am a toe runner). I love the newest model of the Ghost. The only thing I wish is that they came with traditional shoe laces, but that's easy enough to change.

These are just up to par with the other Brooks shoes. Ran bigger than marked and very little cushion. Felt like I was walking on concrete.
