    I was hoping this would be my new training shoe. When I put my foot in the shoe, it was the most comfortable, soft running shoe I've worn! But alas, I have feet that are a little too wide, because I got small friction points in the toe box.

    Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 7 Running Shoe:

    My feet were swelling after around 5 miles and my regular width Mizunos were feeling too tight causing my feet to become numb. I went to RoadRunner Sports looking for a suggestion. Nick recommended the Brooks Ghost 7. I didnt care for the look of the shoe but trusted his expertise. I am SO glad I did! My feet have never felt better. They are light, and fit well on the heel and arch. I wouldn't wear them outside of running but that is what they are for so it's ok.

      I bought these to rotate into my shoe collection that was rapidly wearing out after training for Ironman Boulder and now the Rock-N-Roll Marathon. I have been a Brooks lover for years, so this is not my first pair. These shoes are meeting all of my expectations; great support, breathable, roomy toe box, no blisters, and light as a feather.

        I typically run anywhere from 15-25 miles a week, in addition to cross training at the gym. I needed a new running sneaker that was both lightweight, supportive and had a wide enough toe box so as to not aggravate my horrible bunions! These are perfect! I can easily run 6 miles without any discomfort at all. I have been recommending these to my patients who are avid runners and all of which have loved them :)

          Comments about Womens Brooks Ghost 7 Running Shoe:

          I got fitted in-store late 2013, and these were among the choices selected after my gait analysis. I originally chose another shoe because this one seemed TOO light and bare. But after 8 hours in the other shoe, I returned to the store for the Ghost 6. I have been happy as a clam walking and running in the 6. I wasn't doing any serious exercise, so my original shoes lasted about 9 months.

          A month or two ago, I started picking up my mileage and getting serious about running. It became apparent within the first few weeks that I needed to replace my 6s. I was nervous to try the 7. When I was a die-hard Asics lover, I was let down by next gens of the Cumulus. Despite the bad taste in my mouth, it needed to be done.

          I have been running/walking on these shoes for a solid week now and absolutely LOVE THEM. They feel light and fluffy and new with everything I loved about the 6s still intact - only new!

          The toebox is super spacious, which I love. The wide size gives me room, but not too much. My heel sits pretty nice in it, though I do have to strap them on tight since my heel is really narrow. They're still light but with good cushion. The arch support isn't all that big a factor for me since I supinate and get neutral shoes to correct my gait.

          I wore these to work one day (and got over 10,000 steps) to break them in. There was a little discomfort at first, but nothing too terrible. After that, they were pretty much ready to go for a short 4-mile run. Any initial discomfort subsided.

          I will be buying more of these 7s to ease the inevitable transition to the 8 in a year or so because they're so wonderful.

            I've been wearing Brooks for years because I need narrow shoes. The Ghost 7 feels like the Ghost 5, which I liked. I found the Ghost 6 oddly tight across the widest part of my foot. My only complaint is that the Ghost sole wears out faster than the soles of my old Adrenalines an Defyances.

                  I run a minimum of 25 miles/week and am currently training for the Honolulu Marathon. These shoes replaced my Ghost 6s which lasted through the last marathon training, the race, plus 4 months! So I'm counting on these to be just as durable.

                    I am a pet sitter and work outside on various surfaces. I can really depend on these stable shoes to keep me balanced while completing outdoor cleaning duties and lots of dog walking! I ordered a second pair for a trip that I knew I was going to do a lot of walking......stability and cushion! Going to be hard to wear another shoe! Wish they would make red (not pink) a color choice for this shoe!

                        Much better than the 6 which had that weird sole pattern. The 7 is wider in the toe box which is great for my feet but I think I need to get my true size, not my running shoe size which is usually 1/2 size up. I hope this last longer and wears better than the 6.

                          Great shoe! I have IT Band issues and not one issue since running in the Ghost 7. I'm very happy with this shoe.

                          I bought both the Ghost 7 and the Glycerin 12 on pre-order. They were both great in their own way but for me the fit of the Ghost 7 is fantastic. I tend to have issues with shoes due to a narrow heel and wider forefront. No matter how I tied the Glycerin the heel was slipping so I returned them for a 2nd pair of Ghost 7's. I run 20-30 miles a week and half marathons 2-3 times a month. These shoes really are "spooky good"! My feet feel great after a short or long run in these. I do use an orthotic. The arch support on the Ghost 7 seems medium, not high.

                          Quite a difference in comparing the Ghost 5 which I'll loved. The Ghost 7 has a small variance in the heel drop and immediately aggraviated my right upper proximal hamstring/ITB. The mid-sole has significant flex which is good as far as toeing off and more contact with the ground, but noticed the balls of my feet and the top part of my toes hurting. Felt to me like I was running in a Nike Free running shoe (performance shoe). Really think it could still use more cushion and do away with the more flex in the mid-sole. Feel this version is going to wear/breakdown more quickly.
