    Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 5 Running Shoe:

    I've been running eight years with 10 half marathons under my belt. I have FINALLY found the shoe! After eight years of running with knee, shin and hip problems, I put on these shoes and quite literally have had NO injuries or pain! I purposely waited to get some big miles in on this shoe before I reviewed.

    Lightweight and comfortable from the first day I put them on. I am Brooks Ghost 5 fan!

      Wear so much due to having foot and ankle issues. Have bought several pairs and these aren't made anymore. Sometimes these shoe companies keep remaking shoes over and over again and start ruining them just to "get" a style updated.

        Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 5 Running Shoe:

        I use the Ghost as a neutral running shoe. I have switched from Ghost to Adrenaline (both Brooks) and back to Ghost again. I prefer the Ghost as it is not as much support and therefore does not aggitate tight hamstrings, Achilles, etc. I run around 300-400 miles in the shoe before I switch it out. I have been running in this shoe for two years and have had no problems with overwear or tearing. I run about 30-40 miles per week. When I am finished using them for running, I use them in my job and also in the gym. Great shoe!

          These are my favorite running shoes. I wore out my first pair and tried other models but ended up returning the others and buying 2 pair of these! They are great and I don't want to run in any other shoe!

            I had the Ghost 4 prior to these and loved them but had read some not so great reviews on the 5, but I love these just as well. They have good cushioning and a roomy toe box which is important to me.

              Was real concerned about changing brands, but lots of research brought me to Brooks. The toe box is simply the best and short of them messing with that, they'll have a customer for life. They got me through training and completing my first full Ironman; if they can do that, there's no reason for me to not buy more. Wisest choice I made.

                  I have over 100 miles on these so far training for my 6th marathon and am in love with this shoe. Before this shoe I suffered from plantar fasciitis off an on for years and then was completely sidelined with a stress fracture...minimal shoes are not for me. This is the shoe I bought to start running again after being injured and I've never felt better, legs aren't as tired and PF pain is gone. I don't even need my inserts anymore with this shoe. I run on trails and pavement and this shoe performs well on both surfaces. Excited but a little nervous to try the 6, would hate to be disappointed after the 5. I measure an 8.5 and wear an 8.5 in all Brooks shoes.

                      Looking for a replacement for my Pegasus 28s (29s didn't cut it and can't wait for the 30s to come out in August) I tried these because they worked for a friend who has often been happy with the same shoes I run in. Did not quite fit me right. I have a fairly wide toe but these were still sloppy in the toe box. Also, the collar seemed a little too short for the shoe and the laces were much too short (I like to do the heel-lock lacing using the extra holes). Overall not comfortable enough for me to even take out for a run, so I sent them back.

                            I would like to say that the shoes make me jump higher and run faster, but they don't - however, they are very comfortable and support my plantar fasciitis. These are my second pair.

                            Better for the treadmill and gym. Harder on the legs when outside.

                              I bought these shoes and the next week ran a 1/2 marathon. These shoes were higher up on my feet and I tied my laces too tight and got a small bruise (my fault) other than that I laced them up differently and now they are great!

                              Very comfy but a bit bulky. When they're new they're awesome but they break down after a few hundred road miles.

                                  I run about 25 miles per week & Ghost is my go-to shoe. This is my second pair of 5's. I love them! Mixed feelings about the 6 coming out in July!

                                    I run 40 miles a week at 58 years old with back, hip and knee problems, I also pronate. I need really GOOD shoes. I knew after trying a pair of these on they might be good but until you start running in them you never know. Truly one of the best shoes I've ever worn, still new so hoping they wear well and keep the cushion. A super shoe, thinking about buying another pair and sitting them on the shelf for next time.

                                    RRS is one of the most efficient, courteous and decent online sports companies I've dealt with through the years, as good as the shoes they sell.

                                      About me: Run 20 miles per week. Had Plantar Fasciitis Release Surgery in 11/10. Wear custom orthotics to run in. Trained and ran a half in these shoes nailing a PR. Have about 225 miles on these shoes.

                                      I had never tried Brooks before and was a Peagus Nike girl. Hubby had some Ghost 3 that I heard all the time how awesome they were. I needed a wide shoe which limits my options. Once I saw the Ghost had a wide I gave it a try.

                                      The shoe is very comfortable and fits my custom orthotics very well. I feel they have more cushion than the Pegasus. I run on pavement and also on a dirt median and have had no trouble bringing these on this dirt surface.

                                      The shoe hugs my orthotic keeping it where I need it for support. I have not had issues with Plantar Fasciitis with this shoe. It seems pretty light but with my orthotics they are more heavy but I still feel pretty light with them on.

                                      Overall this is a good work horse type shoe. I did lots of long runs training for my half and wore them at my race. I also placed in my age group in a 5K recently with them so you can move in them.

                                      I feel I got a lot for my money. They are not exciting or sexy, but they get me down the road and back with cushion and support.

                                      I plan to get another pair soon since I am getting up in miles on them fast.

                                              I have only been running with them for three weeks, but so far they are working out great. I mainly run on pavement with them. The comfort and support is great. I haven't tried them on trails or gravel yet. My feet don't hurt when I'm done running. I don't get shin slints anymore. I knee hurts sometimes, but I think that is because I am just starting to run. So far I haven't had much to complain about for this shoe.

                                                  I've been a Brooks fan for some time since they seem to have attributes that I like - wide toe box and good arch support. The last Ghost I had was the 2, and these are similar to that version. I would recommend these for trainers up to marathon distance, however, I've recently developed Plantar Faciitis, and because of this I am switching to a shoe with a bit more cushioning.

                                                      This shoe has helped with my foot cramps and calf/Achilles problem with the first run. I would recommend them to anyone that needs a nuetral shoe. I run approx 20-25 miles a week.

                                                        I am usually a Nike geek only, however, I LOVE these. They way they look and feel is great and I never thought you would get me to convert to another shoe type! great so far for my runner chick training.
