The light, bouncy, and balanced ride of the Ghost has haunted the dreams of many competitors -- and it's about to get frighteningly good. Brooks has taken the transition from silky to ridiculously smooth by removing the midfoot shank and creating full ground contact from heel to toe. The underfoot gets even more love with a horseshoe Caterpillar Crash Pad that wraps the heel from medial to lateral sides and articulates the laydown. What does all that mean? Looking as good as it feels, you'll fall in love with this friendly ghost.
Runner's World® named the Ghost 6 "Editor's Choice" in the Fall Shoe Guide in their September 2013 issue - the fourth straight Ghost to earn the honor. They called out the new forefoot overlays welded on rather than stitched, but really loved "how fluidly the shoe rolls from heel-strike to toe-off." In short, the Ghost 6 offers "a sweet balance of weight, cushioning, and everyday durability" - and the editors say "The lightest Ghost we've seen leaves nothing out." Can you say "Four-peat"? Spooky good.
