Let me first say that I am without a doubt in love with the Brooks Running Ghost...period! You know when you have that one favorite shoe...that's the Ghost shoe for me! So, when I tried on the new Ghost 7, I knew immediately my love would just grow deeper! The color popped as soon as I opened the box and peeled back the wrapping. When I slipped my feet in them, my feet did an internal "Ahhhhhh!" LOL! They are just pretty perfect. As Brooks describes them, "the Ghost 7 is a triple threat of balance, cushion and lightweight materials." It truly hit the "sweet spot" for millions of runners. My first run with them I took them our on a 12 miler and they def stood the test of time and the pavement. Brooks describes on the page..."Hitting the sweet spot for millions of runners, this neutral running shoe gives you the stuff to kick back for miles on end, or lean in and pick up the pace. We’ve maintained the horseshoe-shaped crash pad, full ground contact, and omega grooves in the forefoot for the super-smooth heel-to-toe transition runners love. We’ve improved the multi-award-winning Ghost by making it smoother and lighter. BioMoGo DNA in the midsole offers adaptive cushioning while staying more flexible. Bigger lugs in the forefoot make the Ghost feel more responsive as you run. And the look? More modern while remaining technical, thanks to the Ghost’s signature color-shift chevron and no-sew overlays. The Ghost may scare off the competition, but it’s plenty friendly to your feet." So after my run, my feet were in heaven! The Ghost are light, comfy and just what every runner needs. Go get your gait analyzed today at your local running store and give the Brooks Ghost 7 a go!
