      Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 4 Running Shoe:

      First run on the Ghost 4 and I am in love with this shoe! I ran in the Ghost 3 and this is a definit improvement. I do use orthodics in my running shoes so I can't speak to support but the heal was snug and supportive, the toe box had just enough room . The new lace system is really comfortable. Thanks Brooks for a great shoe!

        Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 4 Running Shoe:

        I did Shoe Dog and these were one of the suggestions. I've always bought Asics and thought I loved them until I tried these shoes! Suddenly realized how the Asics has less room in the toebox (cuts inward too drastically and squeezes my pinky toe) but the toe box on these Brooks are perfect! Never knew my feel could feel so good! Even better when I add the inserts I got from ShoeDog! I didn't buy these at the store though, I ordered them online with RoadRunnerSports because for some reason they were much cheaper than instore!
        Oh and I am a size 8 but usually order size 8.5 for running shoes but the 8s in this shoe is perfect!

        Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 4 Running Shoe:

        This is a great all round shoe. It feels supportive underfoot and comfortable enough to run without thinking too much about your feet or your gait. When you turn up the speed, the shoe can take whatever you dish out--any strike at any speed... There is a padded feel without so much cushion that your efforts are defeated. My tendons appreciate the responsive support of the ghost and this version is a vast improvement over last year. Let's see more colors and availability!!

          I have extremely high arches and have trouble finding a shoe that allows me to run pain free. I've only taken the shoes out on 2 - 5k runs, but so far they are amazing! I'm very happy with my purchase and still pain free!

              I found the shoe true to fit and I am enjoying getting back to a walk/run routine after almost a year of injury. I am going slow but find the shoe so comfortable that I have to really pull back so I do not over train. Since I am an older runner I am taking my recovery seriously.

                Ran a ten mile race right out of the box and felt great!!! I love Brooks and the durability is great. Very breathable and lighter than my Mizunos. I run about 35 to 45 miles a week and these shoes always hold up to my standards. I am waiting for RRS to get the new Ghost 5's as they came out May 1st. Love my VIP discount.

                      I LOVE the Ghost 4s! I ran in Ghost 3s previously, but I think Brooks took an awesome thing and made it awesomer with the Ghost 4s. The DNA cushioning is amazing. Every time I put on my Ghost 4s I'm amazed at how comfortable and cushiony they are, especially on long runs. I just bought my second pair and can't wait to pile on the miles.

                        Used the Ghost 3 and loved it except it felt a bit wide, especially toe box. These are indeed a bit more narrow but it works for me and prefer to run in thin socks. Can't give it 5 stars because I haven't been on a long run yet.Never owned Brooks B4 the Ghost 3. I'm a fan now!

                          This is the classic old Brooks Cheetah come back to haunt ~~~ it is a stupendous shoe. I loved the Cheetah and then naturally it went extinct. The new Ghost is way better than the 3. I've found my sole mate in the Ghost. It felt great right out of the box. I just knew that would not change when got out for the first run in them. This shoe may be an all time classic.

                          Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 4 Running Shoe:

                          Wish the Ghost 4 would have worked for me, but the change/reduction in forefoot cushioning and reduced firmness in the heel was a deal breaker. Love the improvements such as the much needed padding to the tongue and collar to the Ghost 4. The Ghost 3 is sadly lacking in padding around the collar, and I had to add a piece of cushioned padding to protect my ankle bones. I also like the loop attached to the tongue to remedy slipping from side to side in the 4. I hope the Ghost 5 will have both the fantastic foot bed/sole of the Ghost 3 and the plush upper of the Ghost 4. That would be the perfect shoe. True to size for Brooks, although the toe is wider on the 4 than the 3.

                            I am recovering from an IT band injury and bursitis. I had ordered these just before I had to take time off (previously running in Ghost 3's). My first run went better than expected and these shoes are great! I liked the 3's as well, but the improvements in these are way beyond expectations.

                                The toe box has a stiff inner lining that makes noise with running. I had the ghost 3 which didn't have this issue. The shoes are comfortable and because I listen to music when I run the noise isn't much of a factor. I was just surprised by this.
