Brooks bills this 11th iteration of the popular Ghost GTX series as “the smoothest ride possible,” and right out of the box, they also claim. After testing the shoe, we tend to agree that it’s one of the more comfortable rides on offer this season, due to its ample cushioning in the heel and midsole, as well as a durable, segmented outsole for wet or icy runs, aiding in a gentle foot strike
We suspect most runners will cotton to is colour scheme as well – men’s come in black, orange and ebony; women’s in black, pink and ebony. Personally, we really like the bright-on-dark look for both sexes.
Finally, The Ghost 11 also comes with a Gore-Tex membrane to keep your feet comfortable and dry.
