The Ghost 5 running shoe from Brooks has been named “Editor’s Choice” in the Runner’s World 2012 Shoe Guide. I received the Ghost 5 shoe in an outstanding purple & turquoise color. The colors look great together. This shoe also comes in two additional color options. I really liked the overall look of the shoe, and love that I can now exercise in style!
The Ghost 5 running shoe is lightweight and comfortable. One of the features I liked was that the tongue of the shoe is thick and padded. My last pair of shoes had a very thin tongue and the tops of my feet would hurt right wear the bow is tied. That doesn’t seem to be an issue with these shoes. They’re made of a mesh material that offers breathability. There’s a very slight amount of cushioning to give your feet the comfort it needs.
I am not a runner, but I have been trying to get some exercise in as much as possible. I’ve used these shoes for walking, jogging, and while using the elliptical. When I first tried them out I did go for a run, and It definitely added a spring to my step! I really liked the flexibility it offers. I have had no problems with these shoes and am very satisfied. Comfortable shoes are important, they give me the motivation I need to get up and exercise!
If you’re looking for a perfect gift for the runner in your life, these are a great option. There is a men’s version as well. You can purchase these shoes for $110 from Brooks online. If you’d like to try them on before purchase you can search for a retailer near you at their online site.
