    Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

    After decades wearing ASICS I had to find a new shoe when the Nimbus 18 was too narrow for my feet. My local running store recommended the Brooks Glycerin as a replacement for the Nimbus, but it wasn't the glove like fit I was looking for so I opted for the Ghost 8 instead. I liked the cushion of the Ghost as it reminded me of older version of ASICS. When I saw all the great reviews for the Ghost 9, I went back to the store to try it and purchase a pair. I liked the 9's better than the 8's because of the wider toe box and full mesh forefoot. I have not had a pair of shoes that I love to run in as much as the 9's in years. I am now on my second pair. I even converted my husband from his Skechers to Brooks.

    One minor note - the top of the heel does not have the little notch. It was not an issue for me, but my husband wears low cut socks and it cut up the back of his heel for a few weeks.

    A stiff ride

    Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

    I have worn many Sauconny shoes before, but these offer little coushion and little return in the heal. I've worn them on many treadmill runs and on outdoor runs of 7-8 mikes and I still can't get used to the stiffness of the undercarriage.

    I LOVE these shoes. I thought the Ghost 7s were good- nice and light, good cushioining. I hated the Ghost 8s because I felt the soles were stiff and not enough cushioning. These 9s are even better than 7s (FOR ME). They are so light, have perfect cushioning. The collar is supportive and doesn't fold down.

    Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

    When Asics made the front of their 2000 series shoes narrower, even the wides were causing my feet to hurt. After much research, I tried the Brooks Ghost 9s and am very pleased with how they fit and how they feel when I run. I'm also pleased that they're so lightweight. I intend to continue ordering this model, especially since Runner's World ranks it so highly.

      Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

      As a long time Brook's Ghost wearer I was very disappointed in these shoes. I ordered these in the my normal size for Ghost, and they were a half size too small. They are not as cushioned and do not have the arch support of previous models. I can put Ghost 9 on one foot and my old worn out Ghost 8 on the other and the old shoe feels better! As much as I hate to I am going to have to look at wearing something else.

      I bought these shoes because of the reviews that mentioned the wide toe box. They are perfect. I don't have wide feet and these shoes are roomy but not too loose. An added bonus is the great cushioning.......don't need my cushioned insoles anymore. I've run about 50 miles in them and have no complaints. Would definitely buy again.

        Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

        I have recently been "lost" at finding a lightweight cushioned shoe for long distance triathlon training (half ironman/ironman distances). The previous shoes I wore are not made the same anymore and I cannot wear them. I am an aged runner and need neutral cushioning but not too much. These shoes fit me like a glove and out of the box ran an hour plus without any issues. They are cushioned, comfortable and light. They roll over easy running and cadence is higher than previous shoe.

          Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

          I've run in the Brooks Ghost 6 and 7. Compared to those these feel incredibly heavy, unsupportive, and have no cushioning. They feel like budget level shoes. The engineering is completely off because looking at these they SHOULD have all the stability and cushioning - they are high off the ground and wide - but due to the heaviness and clunkiness I don't get that wonderful smooth "roll" from back to front that I did on earlier Ghost models. I'm a heavier runner and need the cushioning too and these made my knees hurt on the first run. If you are a neutral runner looking for a little stability and excellent cushioning try the Saucony Ride. I used to switch back and fourth between the Ghost 8 and the Saucony Ride 8 and also am pleased with the Ride 9. Saucony has the smooth transition that the older Ghost models used to have.

          Roadrunner: These should no longer be ranked as 4 on cushioning, they are not comparable to level 4 shoes.

          Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

          I'm an active 68-year-old woman with a history of plantar fasciitis which has caused me to give up running and turn to walking and biking instead. I just bought Brooks running shoes for the first time. I bought a pair of Brooks Ghost 9 and also Brooks Ghost 8. I bought half a size up in both shoes and they fit perfectly. The Ghost 8s are wide while the Ghost 9s are medium. I thought I'd try both sizes and send back whichever pair didn't work. Turns out there isn't all that much difference between medium and wide and, consequently, both sizes work well and I am keeping both. Both the Ghost 8s and the Ghost 9s are made of super comfy mesh material, have a nice roomy toe box while still fitting well at the heel, a nicely padded tongue, and have enough room to comfortably accommodate my gel heel seats. Since buying these shoes 3 weeks ago, I have increased my mileage from about 15 miles a week to 20-28 miles a week, and so far, so good. I do notice that the Ghost 8s are a little more cushy than the Ghost 9s. But I am happy with both shoes and would recommend them to others.

          Recently switched from the Glycerin to Ghost. This shoe is a level 4 cushion so I still get support as a heel strike runner but I don't have the break in period that I had with Glycerin. I was also having problems with tight calves and these shoes made a difference for me.

          So far so good! 8 have worn Brooks Ghost in the past and always liked them. I switched to the Adrenaline for my last pair of shoes and loved them as well. The Ghost feel a bit bigger on the toe box, not necessarily a bad thing just an observation. I like the color of these and I'm not usually a fan of the dark color.

          Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

          I bought these to replace my Nike Air Pegasus 31 which were getting a little worn down. I tried on many Neutral shoes and found that most were too soft (cushioned) or too stiff for my preference. These are the perfect amount of cushion and responsiveness for my style running (I tend to be heavy footed - too much cushion and I sink into the shoe). I bought them about 5 weeks out from a half marathon and have loved every training run in them. I have a pretty high arch and these were not as supportive in the arch as the Nike's so I got the custom insoles to add some extra arch support.

          I owned the Ghost style previously so I ordered another pair. I am currently using them for low impact training. I have very high arches and have found the Glycerin style is better for my running comfort. I love this shoe but it does not do as well for me for high impact activities.
