Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoe:

I run on a treadmillabout 45 miles per week. I sufferfrom sciatica and need the added cushion and support in my shoes.
While the ghost gave great arch support, I feel like the heel cushion is just a little lacking.
To be fair, I AM used to running in a very well-cushioned shoe. (Nike Vomero)

Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoe:

I'm an active 68-year-old woman who had to give up running due to plantar fasciitis and I now walk and bike instead. Three weeks ago I bought Brooks running shoes for the first time. I bought a pair of Ghost 8s and a pair of Ghost 9s. I bought the shoes half a size up and they fit perfectly. The shoes are made of a comfy mesh material, have a nice roomy toe box while still fitting well at the heel, and enough room inside to easily accommodate my gel heel seats. I bought the Ghost 8 in wide and the Ghost 9 in medium, figuring that I would keep the pair that fit best and return the other pair. Turns out there isn't much difference between the medium and the wide, both are a comfortable fit, so I am keeping both pair. The Ghost 8 seem to be a bit more cushy than the Ghost 9. since buying these shoes, I have increased my walking from about 15 miles per week to 20-25, and so far, so good. I notice the Ghost 8s ar a bit more cushy than the Ghost 9s. But I would definitely recommend either shoe to others.

Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoe:

I switched from Asics Cumulus to Brooks Ghost 8 for Summer Marathon Training. Good cushion, but not too much. Excellent shoe for many miles of training. Lasted close to 300 miles. I bought 2 more pairs in different colors. I like to have a wide toe box and these were great. No blisters, perfect fit.

Not a big fan

By Rita

Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoe:

Not liking these shoes so far haven't had them that long & even with Super Feet Insoles. They are light weight compare to my Brooks Ariel 2014 but Ghost 8 do not have enough support for me and my feet still ache even with new insoles and I only buy Super Feet Green or copper insoles & I'm afraid to wear them at the gym most likely their going back even my GTS 14 feel better. Trying the Brooks Glycerin next :) I'm not a big fan of going to a store and trying on shoes and I like buying from Road Runner Sports because you can try
Them & if you don't like you can return them with in 90 day :)

Nice running around the neighborhood shoe

By Cheryl

Verified Buyer

Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoe:

I bought these shoes for road running around my neighborhood so as not to wear out my trail shoes on asphalt. The shoes are a great fit and provide the cushion I was looking for. So far (guessing 100 miles) the heal is still in great shape - I tend to wear out heals quickly.

Great training shoe

By Mary

Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoe:

I love this running shoe. When I went home to visit family in the states last summer I got a shoe fitting and was recommended the ghost 8. This is my 3rd pair and I love them. I have been training in them for my 5ks, 10ks, half marathons, and now my very first marathon. They have enough cushion for me but not too much that I feel they are heavy on my feet. Also I love the different color options they have. Overall one of my favorite shoes to run in.

Love the feel, but want more reflective surfaces

By Rachel

Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoe:

I love running in these shoes. My only regret is they significantly cut back on the amount of reflection on the heel from the Ghost 7. I often run in predawn or twilight hours and I value anything that makes me more visible.

Love these shoes. I started out with a Ghost 7 pair then last year bought these Ghost 8 shoes and now I've ordered my second pair of Ghost 8. I walk between 4 to 5 miles everyday so I replace my shoes every year even though they still look great!

Great shoes for neutral runner with high arches

By Joyce

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoe:

I use these shoes for running an average of 20-25 miles per week and am a neutral runner with high arches. I began a saga earlier this year of trying to find the right shoes after discovering the shoes I was wearing were too soft with too much cushion. Never thought that was possible. At the suggestion of a running store coach, I switched to the Ghost, ran in them 6 times, got an IT band issue and promptly took them back. After that, I just could not find the right shoes. Began to realize maybe I had reacted too quickly to the IT band problem. Ended up re-purchasing the Ghost and absolutely love them! I wish I would have found them sooner given that this model is phased out now. Regardless, I am very happy I tried them again and hoping that the new model will be just as good as this one for me.

I hate these

Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoe:

I hate these. I have a neutral foot. The lateral tread on these shoes put my feet into a pronated position. I started to have some discomfort just from walking in them. I returned them immediately.

Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoe:

I really like these shoes. Nice cushion and durability but also lightweight. Two things aren't perfect: first, the shoelaces are really short. Second there is a rubber/plastic part on the toe that bugs me a bit. But it's ok.
