    Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

    I like the show but may have to go back to Dyad 9 since the Ghost 9 "wide" is not a true wide and fits is too snug. I need to keep laces loose. Too bad, I would love this shoe but not until they make the wide a true wide.

    Great trainer! But as winter is coming the very breathable mesh could be a problem. Wish they made a winter version. I usually wear a wide but had no problems with these. Great trainer, will post an update after it starts to snow.

    Been getting this line of sneaker for years. Good support. Generally very durable. Only had one pair start showing some wear and tear before it was time for normal replacement. That wear and tear was minor and didn't inhibit me using them.

    Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

    I wasn't too sure about the Cloud Nine the first few times I ran in them. They are not like any running shoe that I have owned. The more I wear them the better they feel, they are very well made and have great supporft and comfort.

    I run in these shoes. I have been running in ASICS and decided to try another shoe. The shoes are comfortable but seem to be equal to the ASICS. Nothing notable about these shoes over a similar priced shoe of another brand

    I read a couple comments about roomy toe box, I'm just not feeling that. I find my pinky toes being crowded in after 6 miles or so. I do like the placement of the big toe reinforcement, wore through both pairs Ghost 8's there before hitting 30 miles.

      I run road run 30 miles a week. This is my first Brooks shoe as I was previously an avid Pegasus user. I am very impressed with this shoe - light, comfortable, cushion and great looking. Provides the road comfort I needed (which is lacking in the new Pegasus shoe). Very glad I discovered these!

      Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

      I use this shoe for walking, as I can no longer can run due to arthritis. The shoe offers the extra cushioning that I was seeking without being too bulky or heavy. It was comfortable from day one! I was hesitant switching shoe brands, but I am glad I did!

        Update to my previous "first run" post. These blow the Ghost 8 away and I love almost everything about them!

        Not the greatest on a slightly wet trail - I plan on getting the GTX version for fall/winter.

        You can't be disappointed. No shin splints. No blisters. No foot pain of any kind. Just plain awesome. An absolute pleasure to run in with no post run fatigue.

        (PS - wearing custom Rx orthotic)

          I usually use a stability shoe but the cushioning in this seems to hit all the right places. It is the most cushioned shoe for the weight that I have worn. Also and important for me, it comes in a B width.

          Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

          The Brooks Ghost 9 is anther great shoe from Brooks. If you're looking for a neutral running shoe with great cushion support, I highly recommend this shoe. Roomy toe box, padded shoe tongue and collar for ankle support. Great color selection, too. Be sure to buy a 1/2 size bigger than your regular shoe size.

          I bought these shoes for everyday walking. After a couple weeks I decided to do a short run with them. What a difference from my Asics Gels! The Brooks shoes are very smooth and have nice cushioning. Brooks Ghost are now my regular running shoes.

          I use this pair as my walker shoes and my yard work shoes. I have plantar facatisis and these shoes provide the support my feet need. The next pair will be my "good" shoes.

          Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

          I LOVE these shoes! I have had the GTS 12's and 15's prior and really liked them as well. This shoe is a little different with not quite as firm of a footbed and a larger toe box than my GTS 15's. The fit is really awesome with the way they've designed the heel cup. They are very breathable. I alternate every other day with my GTS 15's so it's easier to pick up on the subtle differences between the shoes but I don't think you go wrong with either. I typically run 10 mi on the long end and 4 on the short end and log about 30 miles a week in my Brooks shoes.

            I have run in previous models of the Ghost and didn't love them. I decided to give the new Ghost 9s a shot because I was not happy with the update of my most recent shoe. I absolutely love the Ghost 9s. Great fit, great cushioning, great response and great comfort. I am looking forward to many happy miles in the Ghost 9s.

              Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

              Switched from Asics to the Ghost 8 about a year ago and swore I would not go back. My 8's are still great but it was time for something new and I preordered the 9's as soon as they hit the RRS site.

              First impression - lighter, great toebox ( actually most comfortable toebox ever ). I wear full length orthotics and they fit perfectly and did not jam my foot at all.

              On the run ( street/pavement ) - they feel lighter while running. The ride seems a little more cushioned than the 8. At first I was getting worried because the ride was what I loved most about the 8 ( not too hard / not too soft / just right ). It was a nice run and I adjusted to the shoe immediately. No shin splints.

              Time will tell if it holds up the way the 8 did. I'm a little skeptical due to the slightly softer ride - but I love them so far and am looking forward to finding out.

              The new model is not as comfortable as the previous version. I run 4-5 miles every other day. I've been wearing Brooks Ghost shoes for about five years and this is the first time I haven't been completely satisfied.
