Ghost 8's were very comfortable but my big toe eventually poked a hole in the mesh on several pairs. I was so happy to see that the Ghost 9's fixed this problem by extending the solid rubber to cover the area of the big toe. Now, unfortunately, the Ghost 10's have removed that improvement, and they are back to just mesh. I can already see that my big toe is begging to push through. Why oh why oh why?

I ordered these shoes out of desperation. I had worn New Balance running shoes for more than 12 years - running 8 marathons and countless 1/2 marathons. However, something changed (me or the shoes, not sure which) and I could NOT find a NB that didn't slip, rub or blister my feet. Then I tried the GHOST - stable, neutral, cushioned, foot hugging, non-slipping AMAZING! I'm incredibly pleased. I even wear orthotics and I couldn't be happier with the GHOST! I've already ordered another pair just to be sure I NEVER go without a great pair again.

not sure anymore. Used to be NewBalance

This shoe is immediately comfortable. Other Brooks shoes I've have to order up 1/2 size, but not with this shoe. It seems to have a slightly more rounded toe box than other Brooks shoes. I'm hoping they will add additional colors soon.

I got these for walking since I had the Ghost 9 and love them. These have way more cushion than the previous edition and I feel like I am walking on clouds. The back part that sits on my achilles is super soft.. like a little pillow to keep it comfy while I walk!

My first experience with Brooks Ghost. Adequate cushioning for those who do not want to feel the road so much when they run. However, rather heavier than the Mizuno Hitogami brand I usually run with. May decide to just use it on the elliptical machine. Regarding sizing, I typicallly wear size 9-1/2 athletic shoes but I initially bought a size 10 from the Brooks website based on their recommendation. Had to return it: too big. Got 9-1/2 from Zappos.

In a standard shoe, I always wear a size 8. In the Ghosts, I have always worn an 8.5 Medium. Ordered both sizes, still need the 8.5 despite other reviews saying the Ghost 10 is larger. Still the most comfortable running shoe for a neutral foot. Not particularly wild about the color choices this time around.

It took forever to find comfortable shoes that were wide enough in the toe box. These are very comfortable shoes with plenty of room. I walked a 5 mile trail the first day with no problems. My only complaint is the shoe slips on wet pavement. I had to be careful on the wet parking lot.

I really like this shoe! I needed shoes that were deep in the toe box (depth, not width), because of a toenail problem. I needed something that wouldn't press on the top of my toenail. These are great for that. I feel like they run big though..I am normally in a 9.5 but needed a size 10 for this shoe! Overall great shoe and I plan to purchase another pair.

Love these shoes! Wear a 7 wide and they fit perfectly! The black & pink aren't too bright - nice and subtle.

The bottom line-the Ghost 10 fits my foot like a glove. I wore a very early version of the Ghost, and then Brooks changed them so they were no longer wearable for me. Glad I tried the current version--it is the perfect balance of cushioning and support for my extremely high insteps and supination. I wear a 6 or 6 1/2 street shoe, but normally go 1/2 size up in athletic shoes, and this one is no different--the 7 is perfect. The toe box is not super wide, so if you are looking for a huge toe box, try the Glycerin, which had a toe box so wide it felt sloppy for my skinny foot. However, I wouldn't say the toebox is narrow, which is how I would describe the Mizuno Wave Rider. I feel a little like Goldilocks--this one is jussssst right. I was formerly wearing the Saucony Ride 7, which was an amazing shoe for me, too, but sadly the current Ride is nothing like the 7's. So, back to Brooks for me. To summarize: The Ghost 10 has great cushioning without sacrificing support, size 1/2 size up from street shoe wear.

I'm a semi-new running training for a 1/2 marathon. I had been wearing barefoot style shoes and coming up with shin pain and sciatica. I used the quiz on Brooks website to find better shoes. This was their recommendation. I knew on the first run they were perfect. No more pain, times are faster, walk breaks reduced. I'm 5'6", 150 lbs, and am running 20 - 25 K a week right now. These shoes are a game changer.

I love this shoe. I've been struggling with plantar fasciitis, and the pain in my heel often feels like a bruise. These shoes provided the relief I needed! The sole is cushy and soft and the arch support is good (I have a really high arch). I will probably be buying a second pair soon, since all other shoes with a firm footbed just aggravate the problem.

Back they go. The left shoe felt wonderfully comfortable out of the box but the right shoe has a tight feeling around the base of the laces. I think the tongue had some extra material on the side which made the shoe tighter in that area. Ordering another pair to see if it's a manufacturing defect because they are crazy comfortable everywhere else with great support and a good sized toe box (I have a bunion and overpronate) and the most subtly colored walking/running shoes I can find these days!

I really liked the Ghost 9's and was a bit disappointed when I tried these on because it seems they took some of the comfort away in the toe box. I did keep them, just wish they would have kept to the same feel was the 9's.

I loved my Ghost 8s & was very disappointed with Ghost 9s. I know some people liked the rubber toe cover on the 9s, but I thought it pressed down on my big toe. I ordered 9s in a half sized longer than usual and still felt constricted. So I was very happy when the 10s came out. My usual Ghost size fits very well & they feel great running.

This shoe is the most comfortable, supportive running shoe I've ever owned. I suffer from bursitis and a neck injury. I have tried every brand possible and this is the first running shoe that I can exercise with absolutely no pain. I wore them for a month and have already bought a second pair...they are fabulous...so pleased!!!

perfect fit and very comfortable. I have never bought running shoes before. They seem a little more unstable on the sides. I usually wear a extra wide and these fit.

Just ran a half marathon in these yesterday, and they stood up to it with no problems. My calves are killing me today, but my feet feel terrific. No blisters, no pain. I run with a mid-foot stride, and the Ghost 10s were supportive and had just enough cushion while still letting me feel the road. The toe-box was also significantly wider than some other brands of running shoes I've tried. Definitely buying another pair for when these wear out!

My new all time favorite running shoes! Great stability and support. Light as a feather. I used to wear the old Asics Kayano running shoe before that toe box size was sadly decreased. I prefer the Brooks Ghost 10's to all of the Kayano's. I used to wear the Kayano's in 7.5M but choose the Brooks in an 8M.

I just love Brooks Ghost design. I've been using generations of Brooks Ghost shoes for about 6-7 years now. I love the neutral pronation which is hard to find and the abundant arch support. The love the aesthetic too! I've used Addis and Saucony for running, which are also great shoes, but my number one choice is these Brooks Ghost shoes. My job requires a lot of running, so I have a pair of these for work too!

I purchase a 9W. It was too short, but width was good. Although not mentioned on Zappos website, the Brooks homepage suggests ordering a size larger. Unfortunately, I have already worn the 9W and can not return it. I am, however, going to purchase a size 10 anyway. Shoe is SO comfortable and offers excellent support. (I stand on concrete floors all day.)

the heel is cushioned and therefore your heel is too low in alignment with your arch.
