This is a great shoe. It is not much of a true trail runner but it is great for the cold. I ran in Cascadia 6's last winter and am looking forward to see how the Ghost compare. They feel true to fit and feel great running in so far.

Neutral with nice cushioning, comfortable right out the box. They are more of a running shoe with a Gore-Tex membrane than a true trail shoe like a Merrell or Salomon. Great for running on wet days and would be slippery on a muddy path. I really like them. My daily running shoe is a Nike Zoom Vomero 6 and I run in these when it rains.

Brands I'd also recommend: Salomon: Men's xA Pro 3d Ultra 2

Excellent quality, solidly built, and truly waterproof. My husband bought these in hopes that he could wear them outside in the winter, although he was skeptical. They're great. He's shoveled snow in them (and we've had plenty of it this winter), walked through puddles, and on slippery roads--and his feet have remained bone dry. Plus, he says, they're super-comfortable and even keep his feet warm. He usually wears a 9 in Brooks, but had to order a 9.5 in this style, so he recommends ordering up at least a half-size larger.

They felt a bit tight at first, but broke in quickly and fit beautifully now. I love not having a soaking wet foot after accidentally stepping in a puddle that comes up over the toes.

I love these shoes, but GTX version should be ordered a 1/2 size up from regular version. The GTX has a snugger fit all around.

I love these shoes! They keep my feet dry in wet weather, look great, and the super fit of the Ghost shoes. Order 1/2 size up from the other Ghost shoes to get a perfect fit. Ghost is my favorite shoe.

Brands I'd also recommend: I only like Brooks Ghost.

My husband got these - his 2nd pair! He is extremely picky with footwear and says he is sticking with Brooks, the most durable, sturdy and comfortable he's had. Definitely worth the money. I have a pair of Brooks myself and I agree. You won't be disappointed.

This is a great shoe! Constantly getting comments on it (positive ones!) and the fact that they're Gore-Tex makes it a plus to wear them in the rain! Super comfortable! Looks great with jeans and cargos! However, my hubby usually wears a 10 or a 10.5...we started with a 10 but by the time we got the right fit shoe, it was a size 11! So maybe order a 1/2 size up...but thank goodness for Zappos' free shipping policies!

These shoes have been all the rage among my husband's running clubs. Those lucky few who wore them raved about their comfort and performance. Many more could not find them in our small towns, and I just had to buy them for him to wear for his upcoming trail marathons and training. He loves them so far. He has worn them on a couple of trail runs and wished he had worn them for a 12 mile, 2,000+ ft climb technical mountain trail race last month. When his Kenyan running coach saw them, even he exclaimed, "Ah! The Ghosts! I have been wanting some!" They seem to provide an excellent fit, and I'm hoping they prove durable because my husband sure does tear through shoes quickly. The Gore-Tex will be great for running on snowy trails. I recommend them.

I have only owned these shoes a few weeks, but I really like them so far. I agree with some other reviews that they do feel a bit snug. I ordered my exact size and I like the way they fit, but others may want to order half a size bigger. I've stepped through some shallow water and my feet have remained dry, the Gore-Tex is definitely nice.

Very comfortable, great for trails. I think I keep buying things partly because I like the shoes and partly because I love watching that little cat put my choice in the shopping cart. Again, Zappos has the best customer service anywhere!

I was looking for a trail shoe that offered good support and water resistance. The styling is okay and the shoe is very comfortable. I question whether the traction would be good, the outsole doesn't seem very rugged. I notice the GoreTex lining causes a sort of crackling when you move your toes around, which was kind of annoying. I decided to return the shoe and stick with a North Face pair I already own.

I have typically been lucky with running shoes. Until these. All things Zappos related went great, as always. These shoes were murder on my feet. By the time I finished my run I could not wait to get these things off. There was no part of my foot that did not suffer. I am speechless. I will be trying something else immediately.
