Why We Like The Brooks Ghost 16 Shoe

Now lighter and plusher, the Brooks Ghost 16 Shoe gives us our most comfortable ride yet. This iteration features a full-length, nitrogen-infused DNA Loft v3 midsole foam for a smoother, softer ride that has us gliding through transitions for an effortless flow. To cut even more weight, the outsole features thinner rubber zones that are just as durable thanks to the new, rugged compound.

I’m a nurse on my feet 12 hours a day and this new midsole support is fantastic! Notable difference from the Ghost 15. My feet are literally comfortable all day

Return to form except for slipping heel

At first, I was excited because this release feels like a return to what I loved so much about previous Ghosts: great cushioning, support, wider toe box, etc. However, the heel is much larger/rounder than ever before, so my heel slipped too much and I had to return the shoe. The narrower heel and wider toe box is what made me a loyal Ghost customer for many years, so I'm disappointed with this change.

Great but runs a little small

I have worn Ghosts for 5 years. I like the 16 better than both the 14 and 15. The 13 will always be my favorite. Now, for the 16... the shape and cushion are great. The toe box is roomier than the last two models, which I appreciate. However, it seems like it runs a half size small. I think I may return mine for a half size up. Overall, positive improvements from the last couple releases.

Been running in the ghost since version 7. I have always loved the fit of the ghost but the best way to describe the fit of the 16 is that is feels sloppy and way too squishy. I think Brooks had a winner with past ghosts and should remain true to themselves and not try to be like other brands. Do you!

I actually really love them but am returning because I don’t love the colors available.

I have run in Ghosts since the 10. Some versions fit me better than others. 15 was not my favorite, felt heavy for running compared to 14, I have them and used them for walking. 16 is really good. I was wondering about the extra width but I hardly felt it, and they are really soft in the landing. I have noticed that I feel better and they make me use my legs muscles better. I have better contact with the ground than 14 which I still love but now it feels like a less technical shoe in comparison. Also, I have already done a couple runs in the hot temps, and I can feel that my feet are more cooked in the 14. Well done Brooks!
