Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

I love that this version of the Ghost has a reinforced toe. My previous pair of Ghost didn't and ended up getting holes from wear after less than 500 miles. These are comfortable, good looking, and sturdy. Been a fan and wearer of Brooks for over a decade now and am really happy with this pair.

    • Hard plastic toe cap is uncomfortable

    Best Uses

    • Road Running

    Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

    The midsole in these is great. Plenty of cushion without feeling sloppy. Lots of lateral room in the toebox. Very comfortable, except...Brooks put an oversized toe-cap on these. It's a hard plastic piece that goes over the top of the big toe. It didn't seem to be an issue on short runs, but as soon as I got up to 5-7 miles I started wearing holes in all my socks. Other people have reported blackened toenails. I'm not sure what the toe-cap is supposed to do, but it seems useless to me. If you try these on and your big toe can flex upward and touch the toe-cap at all, I'd move on to something else. Otherwise, these may be just the ticket for you.

    Favorite shoe ever

    By Vicki

    Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

    My husband has a serious back issue and went to a Road Runner store so they could tell him what kind of shoe to wear. They "coerced" him into getting custom insoles with these Brooks Ghost shoes, and he was highly skeptical. Both turned out to be excellent decisions! The shoe is very stable, and he has less pain. They're his favorite walking shoes ever. If you live near a store, the fitting evaluation is worth your time!

    Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

    I like the shoe especially the cushioned run. But, the 10.5 2E I usually wear with other shoes is too short and too narrow with the Ghost 9. I will order an 11 2E next time and hopes the sizing is better with more room especially width. Wish 2E came with more color options. We wide foot guys always get shortchanged on color options. Wide Feet Matter!

    • Feels too narrow
