Comments: After running through 5 pair of Ghost 5s it was time to find a new shoe, and I made a seamless transition to the 7s. They are noticeably lighter weight than the 5s which is a welcome feature, while providing the cushion and stability I've come to depend on from Brooks. My only concern is that the 5s only lasted ~350 miles before running the tread completely out of them. For the $, if I don't get closer to 500 miles in these 7s, I may give the Asics cumulus or Adidas supernova a try.

Comments: My first time with the Ghost, and I like it. Great for easy runs, but not so heavy and soft that I can't run briskly in them if I wish. I'm a 5'8", 165-lb, 63-year-old male whose other shoes are the Launch, Wave Rider 17, Sayonara, and Pegasus 31.

Comments: The Brooks Ghost 7 have been without a doubt the greatest shoe i have ever owned. I have been with the ghost series since the 5's. I am a 135lb, 5'10 xc/track runner with an infamous heel strike. I have burnt 1/2 holes through the rear foot of shoes such as the New Balance All Terrain and Pegasus 29's, but because of this series of shoe that is no longer a problem for me because of its caterpillar crash-pad. This shoe is fairly lightweight and fast for speed workouts, but has plenty of cushion and durability for gliding through long runs on a daily basis. My only draw back on the Ghost 7 (as well as the Ghost series in general) is that the forefoot tread tends to wear fast. The blown rubber tread may wear quickly but does retain most of its traction. All in all the Brooks Ghost 7 is a great all around trainer that will take on any type of run.

Comments: Current other shoes are Mizuno Wave Rider 15, NB 1080 (latest), and Saucony Ride 4. All size 9 1/2. This is my first pair of Brooks, but so far I am loving the Ghost 7 - size 9 1/2. The quality of materials and construction are excellent. Weight feels just a tad lighter than the WR15 and Rider 4, but equal to the 1080's. Very good cushioning. Very nice response at toe off. My only complaint is that I could use a bit more arch support. BTW - I am 140lbs, 5'8".
