Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoe:

First pair of Brooks since NB took a new direction (for me). I'm running happy now with a second pair of Ghost 8s, a pair of Cascadia 11s I just used on a 50K trail run and Brooks running shorts (four pair, I liked them so much). I'm excited to pick up some Ghost 9s and a pair of Glycerins in another few months.

        So Far So Good....

        By Midget

        from Nebraska

        Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoe:

        I was an avid Adidas guy for years. My daughter got a pair of Ghost 8's for XC training and loved them. I decided to give them a shot and I was pleasantly surprised. I'm 100 miles into these new shoes and so far so good. They are very comfortable and suit my gait and running style. No pain in my lower back, hips, knees, or ankles (I'm almost 50). I'll stick with Brooks for my next pair of shoes.

        Great for Me

        Verified Reviewer

        Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoe:

        This shoe has been great for my running style. No injuries and no pains. The cushion has helped me stay nimble even on the longest runs and the tongue provides great relief from tight shoe strings. I have since boughten 2 additional pairs.

        The only negative may be the wear on the sole. My first pair wore rather quickly on the outer aspect of the heel. I am hoping this was a 1 shoe issue.

            Big improvement over the 7, which was a step back from the 6's. Great cushioning all over and while a bit stiffer, still retain their responsiveness. Overall, I wouldn't change a thing about the shoe... the only question will be durability, which in the 7 was severely lacking... so far, so good!

                Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoe:

                The Brooks Ghost 6's were my favorite shoe, however, I did not like the Ghost 7's much at all. The Ghost 8's are back to what the 6's were. Yes they are a bit stiffer but they are not uncomfortable by any means. I actually enjoy the added stiffness in the shoe. They are very balanced and responsive and seem to have some added durability.

                  Daily running
                  The shoe fits great, length and width
                  Overlay material has no give what so ever, stiff.
                  Full length crash pad seems to have pushed all absorption up through your feet and legs instead of the shoe taking the shock.
                  Its now a 'clunky" shoe instead of a "smooth" ride.
                  Sorry I bought it.
