Brooks Ghost 15 Review

*****The NEW Ghost 15*****

New shoes are the best and the Ghost 15 won’t disappoint.  Comfort and cushion straight out of the box. Let’s talk about the Brooks Ghost 15 and how our Guru has reviewed it.

The first day I had the Ghost 15 I filled in as a substitute recess teacher. Think blacktop pacing for 2 1/2 hours. The Ghost 15 kept my feet happy and cushioned the entire time and even after.  At any time my feet did not feel like I needed to give them a break or change of shoes.

On the second day that I had this shoe I took them for a 4 1/2 mile run on both trail and sidewalk. AGAIN-complete comfort. Lots and lots of cushion in the heel, and for heel striking as well as cushion under the ball of my feet for the push off. With all of that cushion I felt, the Ghost 15 also kept me feeling connected with the ground, yet very light on my feet-no bulk or weighing me down.

The Ghost 15 is YOUR go-to neutral daily running shoe that delivers a lightweight, soft, and smooth ride for miles on end.  

The Midsole:

Men's Ghost 15 can be purchased in KC at The running well store

Arch placement is a bit lower than Ghost 14 and the NEW Ghost 15 is growing up to be a solid & trusted 15 year old. This latest version is an excellent choice for both runners and walkers.  The softer/lighter-weight DNA LOFT V2 cushioning in the midsole will make you feel like you are floating. Your stride will be effortless thanks to the smooth transition delivered by the plush midsole & Segmented Crash pad.

The Outsole:

Grab your 3-D glasses because this new upper design is awesome. Brooks refined their 3D Fit Print to enhance the fit and provide a secure lockdown of the foot. Let’s talk about protection. The high performance rubber in the heel is extra durable which means no unplanned baby ghosts. Whether it is a day for recovery, an easy run, or a long run, the Ghost 15 is ready to be the best friend in your weekly rotation.  Segmented Crash Pad is a system of fully-integrated shock absorbers that accommodate any foot strike and works to provide cushion and create smooth heel-to-toe transitions.
