Additional Information

The Ghost 7 is a triple threat of balance, cushion, and lightweight materials. Hitting the sweet spot for millions of runners, this neutral running shoe for men 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.

Not what I was expecting

I loved the Ghost 4 , the 5's did not work for me at all and the 6's were fantastic, light, bouncy and a joy to run in.

I loved the Ghost 4 , the 5's did not work for me at all and the 6's were fantastic, light, bouncy and a joy to run in.

Let me start out by saying the 7's have a wide toebox, that works for me because I always wear a 12 EE in the Ghost's and this time I had to send them back to get a regular width and they fit fine, so I'm not sure if this shoe will work for everyone depending on your width.

The cushioning is now very soft which may appeal to a wider range of runners however it does not have the bounce and rebound of the 4's and the 6's. They no longer have that sweet spot that made the Ghost stand apart from the pack. That euphoric feeling you get when running in the Ghost is a thing of the past. And I miss it. When I run my daily 5 miles , they feel very comfortable and now very soft, but not very responsive like the previous Ghost models. It is now just a cushioned shoe that feels alot like other brands.

It is still a great high mileage comfortable shoe, it just no longer stand's out as being awesome like the previous models. Hopefully the 8's will bring back that loving feeling that is now gone.

I purchased these at the same time as the Ghost 6 and use both for a week alternating days. The third set of days I did 6 miles in the Ghost 6 and then the next day did 6 miles in the Ghost 7. I now have two huge blisters on both feet from the 7s. The blisters are in the middle of my foot opposite the arches. I just cannot use these they are too uncomfortable. I returned them and purchased another set of Ghost 6. Not sure what I will do when all the 6s are sold out. Maybe I will switch to a different brand because I just cannot use the 7s.

Comments about Ghost 7:

My first Brooks running shoe was the Ghost 6, which I purchased earlier this year and wore in a Spring marathon, where it did me well - I PRed by more than 20 minutes. That marathon and the training leading to it turned me into a Brooks guy (my previous loyalties were to Nike and Asics). I need a shoe with a wide and tall toe box, and the Ghost 6's were nice and roomy for me.

After that marathon I needed some new shoes, and the Ghost 7 seemed like a no-brainer. These are probably my favorite running shoes of all time, and I can see myself wearing future versions as well. The toebox is still perfect for me, and the cushioning is just right - these shoes cushion my feet well enough and are light and responsive just like I like em. I wore the Ghost 7's in the Steamtown Marathon two weeks ago and beat my PR again, this time by 16 minutes. I'm not saying these shoes will give you a PR, but they certainly helped me.

I've been running for over a decade and have cycled through many running shoes, including various models of Nike, Asics, Mizuno and Saucony. I've also worn the Brooks Glycerin (great when you want extra cushioning). I love the Ghost 7 so much I need to get another pair before they are all gone!

P.S. The main reason I checked "wears quickly" is that I wish they would last much, much, longer. I have about 200 miles on my current pair and they are still in excellent shape.

    Comments about Ghost 7:

    The Ghost has been my go-to shoe since the Ghost 4. I have run many marathons and I have never had a problem with these shoes. The 7's feel lighter and more responsive. My one complaint, as others have said, is they wear vry quickly. Previous versions have all lasted me greater than 500 miles. However, the outside heel is severely worn on the 7's (two different pairs) at less than 300.

      I purchase the Ghost 7, after reading reviews I also purchased the ghost 6. The ghost 7 are very attractive shoes, but had foot discomfort after a couple hours of wear. The ghost 6 are very comfortable, after wearing for long periods of time. I am not sure what they upgrade on the 7, but it was wrong for my type of feet. I recommend purchasing the ghost 6 while supply still last.

      Poor wear of sole

        Comments about Ghost 7:

        Bought these shoes at a running store. I recently started running again seriously for exercise and weight loss. I wear wide shoes and some have commented that the sole of the wide size is different than that of the regular shoes so this may apply to the wide size only. These shoes are very comfortable however the sole wears very fast. I have 100 miles on them and the outer sole on the heels is already worn through to the mid sole. I am already looking for another pair of shoes and have only had these 1 month; I would think that running shoes should last 3-400 miles. I have never had shoes wear out so fast and I used to routinely run 25+ miles a week.

          Comments about Ghost 7:

          I began running and competing in Triathlons about 4 years ago after a decade plus on the couch. Tried the Ghost 6 as a recomendation and LOVED them. Bought the Cascadia 9's for a Trail 1/2 marathon and they are great as well. I recently bought the Ghost 7's to mix in to my road work and they are another winner. They are light and comfortable and I'm hoping they wear as well as the Ghost 6's have for me. The only con is they can lose the bright green accents, ugly. I'm a 40 y.o. Male 190lbs run 20-30 miles per week.
