2010 Fall Running Shoe Review

Our test team applauds Brooks for the improvements in the third version of the Ghost, which they feel moves this neutral and relatively light trainer into the Defyance category and—except for the weight difference—“up there with the Launch, with its improved mechanics.” The fit is rather conforming to the instep with a gripping heel yet roomy toe box. But what stands out is the luxurious ride that is good for lengthy training sessions where it seems to help stave off fatigue.
