I have been running in the Ghost 6 size 8.5 N for the past year. I loved the shoe, except for the fact it would need replacing every three months. I have tried the Ghost 7 in an 8.5 M width and can tell you, this shoe is very different from its predecessor. It lacks the medial stability from the previous model. It runs more narrow and a half a size longer. I found the shoe to feel more like the mizuno wave rider than the previous brooks ghost. Shoe caused my angles and knees to hurt too much, going back to Zappos. :(

I have worn the Ghost 5 and 6, replacing every 3-5 months depending on how much I'm running. Bought the 7 in my usual 9.5 2A. hits right at the bottom of my ankle which is bothersome and blisters my pinky toe.. would return if I could. Will go back to the ghost 6.

I've been running for a few years now and had gotten fitted by a running store to the Asics Gel Nimbus (I think it was the 11, but I kept with the series). I'm a neutral runner with slightly wider feet, and suffered from two bruised toenails after my first half marathon with the Nimbus (at which point I went up half a size), but continued to get blisters between my pinky and fourth toes (despite going up to the wider shoe as well). The Nimbus is a great shoe with lots of cushion though, I'd definitely still get them to walk around in (just not for long distance running). After much frustration, and as I was about to kick off training for my first marathon, I went back to a running store and got refitted to the Ghost 7. It has changed my (running) life! My feet are SO much happier - no more painful blisters. Highly recommend the Ghost 7! (Note I have no previous experience with the earlier models, but the 7 has worked perfectly for me. I'm on my second pair already (~500 miles run with the Ghost so far) and ordering my third today to start breaking in.

Being somewhat hard to fit (11 2A) and having sensitive feet, buying shoes is torture for me. I ordered three Brooks styles and three Sauconys at one time. My current shoe I'm replacing is the Brooks Ghost 5 and I previously owned the Ghost 3. I ordered both the Ghost 6 and 7 and am keeping this Ghost 7 and returning the other five pair. Compared to the Ghost 6 the heel feels slightly deeper, though isn't rubbing my ankles. I'm hoping this will keep my sock from being pulled off my heel. The toebox seems deeper and a bit wider. Due to my narrow foot, when I tighten the laces I do have a very slight bunching appearance across the top of the toebox but I don't mind. My heel placement improves my body posture and that's one of my favorite things about the shoe. I wear orthotics and they fit well in this shoe but I almost think I'll be able to go without them which is very exciting! The cushioning in this shoe is very nice and I think I can wear it for hours and my feet won't be screaming to take them off which is how I usually feel in my Ghost 5 with orthotics.

I'd also recommend: Asics GT-2000 was my runner-up

Great Shoe! The shoe is comfortable and there is plenty of cushioning. It feels a bit smaller than my Ghost 5, but the fit still works for me. In addition, the colors are beautiful.
