    Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 3 Running Shoe:

    I use this product for all activities(running,boot camp,gym). I just switched to a neutral shoe upon the recommendation of a friend who has worn this shoe. It was recommended to me because I have a slightly wide foot and wear orthotics. This shoe has a very roomy toebox and being that I pronate somewhat it is perfect for my orthotic and gives me a perfectly neutral gait. Beyond that, the shoe lets my feet breathe and gives just the right amount of cushioning.

    Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 3 Running Shoe:

    I am an avid runner and new mom. I bought this shoe to start running post-partum with my running stroller. It fits perfectly, is comfortable, and gives good stability for my tendency to over-pronate. It's not as cushioned as I would like it to be, and can feel the effects of pounding the pavement.

      Starting to run again after a long absence. These shoes are everything they are advertised to be. Perfect fit, lightweight, cushiony. I want to wear them all the time, but don't want to wear them out before I get all my running time in...very happy so far!

      Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 3 Running Shoe:

      The shoe is good if you have a neutral gait and need very little cushioning. They are light and breathable and very comfortable. My only problem is that I needed a more cushioned shoe and when I started to run logner distances it caused me to have terrible shin pain. As soon as I upgraded to a more cushioned shoe the pain went away.

          I walked into RR looking for an alternative to the Ravenna. I'd been running in the Ravenna for so long, I wanted to try something knew and a different brand. But as luck would have it, I tried on the Ghost...and what a great shoe. I'd never shopped a store that carried it before...their loss. The Ghost is softer than the Ravenna, not as stiff, but has the same great forward roll I prefer and the same Brooks "fit". This is the shoe I've been looking for...and inbetween the Ravenna and the Lunar Glide. Love it. Look forward to my next pair.

            I use these for my endurance/half marathon training. I absolutely LOVE them! Very breathable, just the right amount of cushion, and flexible. I wish the left shoe was wider due to my bunion, but that's just my own little nuance. These are really great shoes.

              Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 3 Running Shoe:

              I go to the gym almost everyday and run 4-6 miles everytime I go on the treadmill. I have a foot injury and runner's knee so I have a lot of pain. The day I got them I ran 5 miles with absolutely no pain in my knee, when it had been hurting badly just the day before.
              I don't really like the look of the shoe but I bought them because I saw how many great reviews they had, and I knew I had to go with the reviews. I am SO glad I did that because these are the best running shoe I've ever had. I am training for a half marathon and eventually a full marathon, so I am so glad I found the perfect shoe for me.
              There is a lot of toe room and yet keeps your foot in place. I completely agree with people when they say it feels like you're not even wearing shoes at all. Just make sure you are a neutral runner because obviously that makes a big difference in the feel of the shoe. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this shoe!

                I ordered these shoes for my weekly runs (3 to 5 miles - 2 to 3 times a week) and for cardio at my gym. I've been wearing them for two weeks now and all is well! They do not rub in spots and they have been comfortable on my runs and at the gym.

                          I run in these shoes 5 days/wk. They are comfortable. I also run trails in these for 10-14 miles. They hold on for about 3mos (poss 4)without replacing them. For the last 3yrs have been best choice. Before that it was ASICS. A good lateral move to BROOKS. I absolutely love them. Wide at toe and heel is perfect cushion. I supinate some on one foot. These shoes were a blessing!

                            My first pair got me through my first marathon completely pain and injury free. I had a second pair of Brooks (Glycerine) that I alternated with, but my toes would hurt after those runs and they felt heavy. I had such good luck with the Ghost that I ordered a second pair to train for my next race.

                            I used these shoes for the last leg of my marathon training. I had previously had Mizunos, and wanted to try a new shoe (although I love the Mizuno Wave Runner 13, and will probably be going back to them.)

                            These are great- very lightweight and comfy. However, I am still at a stage where I need more cushioning and stability, especially for ankle support. Eventually, I hope to have better form and be more comfortable in a less supportive shoe like this one. Good shoe for those requiring minimal support.

                            Had ghost 2 before these. Liked the fit much better. These seem heavier. They run larger ordered 8 could have ordered 7 1/2. Same comfy shoe. Nice breatheability. I am a Brooks addict.
