Looking for a great neutral training shoe? If you’re an avid runner or simply looking for a great shoe to walk in, look no further than the Brooks Ghost 5.
Like the Ghost 3 and 4, the Ghost 5 was deemed “Editor’s Choice” in Runner’s World’s Fall 2012 Shoe Guide in the September issue. Runner’s World described the Ghost 5 as “a versatile shoe that can handle whatever workouts you throw at it” and noted that the Ghost “remains fairly lightweight with a soft heel and relatively firm forefoot, which gives wearers a fast feel.” One wear tester said “I didn’t have that ‘squishy’ feeling I sometimes experience with cushioned shoes.” Another said, “The Ghost 5 has excellent cushioning—cement feels like blacktop, blacktop feels like grass, grass feels like clouds! I was able to feel the ground just fine for a strong ride.”
We say the Ghost 5 is so supremely smooth and impeccably balanced, it’s scary. This shoe hits the sweet spot for a wide range of Neutral runners with a finely crafted Caterpillar Crash Pad and anatomical Brooks DNA.
