INTRODUCTION

CUSHIONING

  • Rearfoot DNA cushioning gel is a highly viscous liquid that changes to become more or less firm in response to each individual's weight, pace, biomechanics, and running environment.
  • Forefoot DNA cushioning gel is a highly viscous liquid that changes to become more or less firm in response to each individual's weight, pace, biomechanics, and running environment.

MIDSOLE

  • BioMoGo full-length midsole offers resilient cushioning and is made of environment-friendly, biodegradable materials.
  • Cush Pod Configuration is a cushioned midsole/outsole design that sets the foot up for an efficient, balanced heel-to-toe transition.
  • Caterpillar Crash Pad is a segmented crash pad that flexes with the foot, offering customized cushioning and stability for a smooth heel-to-toe transition.
  • Omega Flex Grooves enhance midsole flexibility without compromising cushioning.

UPPER

  • Element Mesh is a moisture-managing, breathable mesh upper.
  • Synthetic Overlays are strategically located to provide a snug, secure fit.
  • Element Linings underneath the upper aid in moisture transfer and comfort.
  • Profile Sockliner made of BioMoGo foam provides contoured support and cushioning.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to full length Cushsole S-257, for enhanced cushioning and flexibility and a soft underfoot feel.

OUTSOLE

  • HPR Plus is a high abrasion-resistant rubber located in the heel for durable traction.
  • Blown Rubber in the forefoot offers durability, responsiveness and flexibility.
  • Cush Pod Configuration is a cushioned midsole/outsole design that sets the foot up for an efficient, balanced heel-to-toe transition.

Comments: Great shoe - lightweight, but plenty of cushioning for marathon training. I've been running in minimialst shoes for a couple years, but was strugging with shin splints. I switched to his shoe and my shin splints went away! I have almost 100 miles on them and they look brand new!

Comments: Here is my opinion of the Ghost 6. I ran my first 5 in them yesterday. They have a soft stride, but I don't see them lasting as long as my Nimbus. I just have a feeling I'm gonna burn through those treads. I didn't experience any discomfort until the very end, when my knee started to hurt and a weird big toe pain. I think it's just because they are new and different. Worth trying on and running around inside, then decide on your own.

Comments: Ok, I've been a true blue Asics Nimbus runner for many years. I've suffered through too many changes though, and decided to try a new shoe. Since I have a med-high arch, long, but not beefy feet, narrow heels, and use orthotics, I have a time finding shoes. So I have been running around my home with the new Ghost 6. I tried the other, higher end Brooks shoe, (the name escapes me), but I felt like I had a brick tied to my foot. Those went back. Tomorrow morning I'll run 5 or so in the new Ghost's. They feel ok, but I don't think they will have the longevity that the Nimbus did. They are $35 less, and I can sort of see why, but the road test will be the decision maker. As far a details though... light weight, interesting feel to the midfoot because of the elimination of the shank, and just comfortable. I'll provide more feedback after the first 5 mile run.

Comments: Very comfortable and has a great fit. I have been running in the Ghost 5, but I love the updates on the 6. Very happy with this shoe and would highly recommend it. I run over 30 miles a week. Running warehouse is the best place to order shoes. Awesome customer service and knowledge of their products. Fast free shipping too.
