All Brooks shoes have cushioning, but how it feels can vary across categories and individual shoe styles. For example, the Levitate and Revel, both within the Energize category, offer different levels of of springy cushioning: max spring in the Levitate, more balanced in the Revel. What you choose is totally up to your preference, as each one delivers lab- and runner-tested performance for every mile of your run.
Still not sure if this shoe is the right experience for you?
Within any experience category, different shoes have varying levels of that experience: some may have a little less, while others have an amplified experience. For example, within Cushion, the Ghost offers soft, balanced cushioning whereas the Glycerin provides super soft cushioning.
Choose your support
Your body naturally likes to move in one way. Deviation is how much that movement changes when you go for a run.
Low deviators may find that shoes designated "neutral" work best for them.
Runners with high deviation benefit from Brooks' support technologies and may want to look for a shoe designated "support".
You may have deviation if:
- You freqently get the same injury
- You pronate or supinate
- Toes point in or out when you walk
- You feel unstable when you balance on one leg
- Hand pressure increases or decreases when you squat with feet together

Origin stories: the Ghost
We introduced the Ghost in 2008 with the goal of creating a go-to neutral shoe for runners. At the time, our director of product management was known for doing all his running workouts at night — and was therefore nicknamed "the Ghost," which eventually became the shoe’s name.
Throughout the years, runners have loved the Ghost for its soft cushioning, smooth transitions, and its reliability as a daily trainer.
