What’s up with this cushioned model?
RUNNING SHOE: Brooks Ghost 6
Category: Neutral, Cushion
Best for: Training, Roads
Weight: 10.7 oz. (men’s size 9), 9 oz. (women’s size 8)
Heel-to-toe drop: 11 mm
Heights: 31 mm (heel), 20 mm (forefoot)
Fit: The plush Ghost is secure and snug in the heel and midfoot with a hint of roominess in the toe box.
Feel: Soft and sublime. The Ghost 6 continues on the soft and luxurious trend of its previous models, only now in a lighter and more flexible package. Our testers praised the step-in feel and long-wearing comfort.
Ride: This luxe high-mileage trainer is soft (but not mushy) and secure from heel to toe. While it has a more traditional design (both in terms of height off the ground and heel-toe slope), the foam and gel midsole components give it an energetic feel. It’s best for longer and slower training efforts, but a hint of liveliness makes it versatile enough for speedier efforts like tempo runs.
