I walk about 5 miles per day at a pace of 15 min. miles. This shoe has plenty of cushion and the stability level that I need.I was wearing Asic for the past few years and loved them but the newer ones have the show box designed too tightly. My next purchase will be another one of these.

Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

Got these for my daughter. At first she thought they were too spacious since she went from a B width to a D. Her feet are kind of duck-shaped. Then she realized how nice it was to have room for her feet to expand when running! She loves them. I might switch over from my New Balance.

Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

I was an avid Asics GT-2000 fan for years, but recent model changes sent me hunting for a new shoe. The Ghost is a quality replacement offering ample support, substantial cushioning, and a spacious toebox for my 11D feet. However, as another reviewer noted, the traction on wet pavement isn't ideal. Yesterday I ran a leisurely four miles in light rain on a combination of asphalt and sidewalks--nothing unusual. The first time my foot slipped I thought it was an anomaly; the second time, I knew it was the shoe. Now I have visions of wiping out during a run and am not 100% confident about wearing the Ghost in inclement weather. Curiously, the sole feels grippy on dry ground so I don't know what the issue is.

Bottom line: Great shoe, but think twice before wearing them to run in wet conditions.

Lacks tractions on wet pavement

Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

I purchased these shoes for running and walking outdoors - mostly on pavement. I normally select a shoe with very minimal cushion and a ramp of less than 10mm, but after weight gain from pregnancy I decided I needed a little extra cushioning and chose these after trying on a wide range of shoes in store. They seemed comfortable indoors, and felt relatively stable running on a treadmill.

Right away I developed blisters above my heel on my achilles tendon - I'm talking within 10 minutes of walking. The heel cup seemed overly wide and I wasn't able to get it cinched in any fashion that would prevent rubbing. Wearing higher socks to cover the area only created an extra layer to rub and create blisters. I thought runner's loops would resolve the issue, but did not. I gave the shoes the benefit of the doubt and continued trying to break them in.

The first walk I took on wet pavement (while pushing my baby in a stroller) led me to a near face plant. With each step I had to be extremely careful because the shoes were just slipping under my feet. My favorite time to run is while it's raining, so I knew these wouldn't provide the traction I needed for wet pavement, particularly for running up paved inclines.

I was really disappointed with the lack of traction, especially because the outsole looks very aggressive. I made it clear when purchasing that these would be used for running on wet pavement.

The other issue I have is with the cushioning; this is more of a preference issue than a problem with the shoe. I think someone who enjoys maximal cushioning would probably like the squishy feel of these. For me personally, I thought it felt extremely unstable as the cushioning was too mushy. The softness of the cushioning allowed too much play in lateral movement of the foot, so it felt like I was walking across a mattress and my feet could easily squishy side to side, which ultimately caused my knees to hurt. I returned these shoes for a firmer cushioned shoe.

Service and delivery comments:

Item was delivered on time. Customer service was great. Only trouble was with my return/exchange as they weren't able to find me in the system, even after scanning my packing slip. They still managed to take care of everything though.

Great shoe for runners with bunions.

By Tamara

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

I ordered the Ghost 9s after trying on a friend's pair. I have had a lot of problem with running shoes before, due to my bunions causing blisters. This is one of the reasons I signed for the VIP plan so i could return shoes after running in them with no problems. I have run two full marathons and several halves in my previous shoes which were Altra zero drops, the only shoe I could find that didn't rub in those areas but since receiving my Ghosts which I ordered in a wide fitting, I have to say these are even better. I would highly recommend them to distance runner who suffer with the same problem. I will be buying more of these.

    I have worn the ghost for a long time. I loved the 7 and previous versions. I thought the 8 was a bit fat in the heel and it rubbed when I wore low socks. The 9 feels like there is a wrap around my ankle. so fat! So much padding. feels like ankle support. I am returning this shoe and it looks like I need to head to a store to try on different shoes.

    Going back to Hoka

    By Donnasue

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

    I have recently come back to Brooks after using Hoka's. I did take the time to read the reviews
    Prior to ordering the Ghosts & Glycerins. The Ghosts run alittle larger than the Glycerins and don't provide
    The support I remember. My issue is that I use the rolling stair master more than I run. The rolling stairs
    On a high level eat the soles of all running shoes. This leaves me with an uneven soles and wear patterns. When
    I do weekly 5 miles; my shins and knees hurt. I have tried bringing 2 separate pair of shoes to the gym; but combined
    With a pair of spin shoes- I don't want to haul that much gear around. Bottom line- the Glycerins are alittle snugger and
    Provide more support & less cushion than the Ghosts. But I will be going back to Hoka.

      Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 9 Running Shoe:

      Nice shoe that is well cushioned, The shoe could be a bit more flexible though. Also, the tongue is very padded and bulky. I actually feel that the extra padded tongue prevents the foot from having a secure tied fit. I thought about cutting open the tongue and removing the interior material but ill return them instead. Other than that, I liked the shoe.

      I first purchased my normal go-to shoe, Asics gel nimbus 19. They ruined the and made them too narrow (I ordered a wide) and just fit generally poorly. So, I researched the shoes and these seemed comparable to what I used to love about my former Asics. I love them! They are so quick to break in and are perfect for my wide feet. Great shoes!

          First Brooks shoe and very happy. Not a runner, walk and gym activity, along with casual wear. I went to by th Glycerin which felt so comfortable, but ended up with Ghost after trying them both. Ghost felt more supportive without compromising comfort. Contemplating another pair. Also bought a pair of Altra Escalante that I like to rotate shoes.
