I'm a medium milage runner (25-20 miles a week). The feel and fit of the shoes were perfect from 1st run. I was given my 1st pair and liked them so much when it came time to replace them I stuck with them.

I like the fit although the fit on this newer pair is a bit wider than my last pair. Other than that they are comfortable and give me a lot of cushion.

    Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

    Great Shoe for my foot, I have a duck foot and very high arches, which makes my feet short for their volume. I size up as an 8-8.5, but always run in a 9 or 9.5. Sometimes standard width works, I fitted in the Columbus RRS store, and went with the wides in a 9.5. I love the fit. The cushoning is fist rate, I alternate these with ASICS Nimbus 18 (9.5 2E) which I also love, but the Ghost's are just a bit lower volume, and a slightly better fit for me. Cushoning for both shoes is similar, I would describe the ride as plush but responsive. Interestingly, I had a bad experience with Glycerins about 15 years ago, and this is my first pair of Brooks since. The last ten years have been mostly Saucony and some Asics for me but my wife has run the last 3 generations of Ghosts, she convinced me to try them when I just coun't find the feel I wanted in my traditional choices. These are her favorite Ghosts so far. I would have taken 2 pairs home if the 2E's came in a variety of colors.

    Been running in ASICS Gel-Nimbus for years. I have narrow feet with very high arches and the Brooks Ghost-9 (B width) fit perfectly. I am also very pleased with the cushioning and performance...so much so that I may add a mile or two to my daily runs!!

    Big improvements over the Ghost 8 and Ghost 7 both of which I liked. This shoe feels like it's better quality and fits my foot like a good performance shoe should. They are very comfortable and I have had no problems with my feet since wearing them. I have two shoes that I use when training and this is one of them.

    Comments about Mens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

    Best shoes I have had in a long time. Lots of cushion and toe box has good room. I went with the wide size for a little extra room. Normally I wear a D size but seems like shoes keep getting made more and more narrow. I have two pairs already. Wish the wide size came in more than one color though. These are my go to distance shoes for marathon training and marathons.

      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.

      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!

        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)
