The light, bouncy, and balanced ride of the Ghost has haunted the dreams of many competitors -- and it's about to get frighteningly good. We've 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 Segmented 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.

We’re not the only people who have fallen in love: 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.

The Ghost 7 is now available – now with a BioMogo DNA midsole for a more flexible, lighter ride.

Love the Ghost but hate running in the rain? The Ghost 6 GTX is also available. Everything you love about the Ghost, but with a waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX® membrane to keep your feet dry and comfortable. No more blaming it on the rain!

First pair of Ghost 6 after 2 pairs of Ghost 5. Use for work (ER staff) and for jogging 10-15 miles per week on gravel and pavement. Have narrow feet so limited on color choice in B width but color is OK not great. Best feature is the low price now that there is a newer model available. Compared to the Ghost 5 these seem to make my feet sweat more and more smelly. Same socks and same feet but not as dry and comfy as the 5's. The laces are elasticized which I liked at first but now really dislike as it makes it harder to properly adjust the tension on the laces. I like to cinch down the middle part of the shoe and leave it looser near the top. I find myself untying and either loosening or tightening them a few times a day at work. For jogging they are excellent as expected and not a huge change from the Ghost 5. Bottom line: if you liked the Ghost 5 you will probably like these also. Only down side is the laces and ventilation seems not as good. I will probably move on the the Ghost 7 when these wear out to see if they are better in these areas.

The fit and feel of this shoe is good. The problem I have with it is that it's to firm on impact for my liking. I currently run in it and the Saucony Triumph 10. The Triumph has a much softer feel on impact than the Ghost. The Ghost however in most other areas outshines the Triumph. I just wish it had a softer feel on impact. Perhaps that's just a personal preference, but I like my cushioned shoes to feel softer. Wish it was as soft as the Triumph, hands down it be the better shoe.

    Comments about Ghost 6:

    I've had previous versions of the Ghost and they were all comfortable and one of the few shoes that I felt comfortable wearing. The Ghost 6 has been uncomfortable from day one - I've tried several different pairs and they all are uncomfortable. They have no cushion and my feet hurt within minutes of putting them on. I'm hoping the Ghost 7 will give me the comfort I'm used to.

      Comments about Ghost 6:

      Love the shoes, but I usually wear a size 10 1/2 men's (I usually wear a women's size 11 1/2and have orthodics), but had to go up to an 11 with these shoes.
      The shoes are some of the most comfortable, well fitting shoes that I've ever had and I would buy them again.
      I use them for gym work, walking and standing and painting ( I am an artist).

              Comments about Ghost 6:

              I have owned several generations of Ghost and Ghost GTX - starting with 2. I am on my second pair of 6. I need a wider toe box than most shoes offer and Ghost has always been great in this department. I will continue to buy them. I wish, however, that the outsoles were different. When new, the newer outsoles (as compared to the early generations), smaller lugged bottoms wiggle a bit too much when new, lugs peel off, and wear far too quickly. I am less than 100 miles into my first pair of Ghost 6 and I am through the lugs. I grabbed a pair of 6 GTX because they advertise a more durable outsole, but so far it doesn't seem to be the case and the toe box is different (tighter), so I bought another pair of Ghost 6 and will continue to wear them out and buy them again...
