Brooks Ghost 4 Review

Zachary Rodasti

Zach's been testing gear with Active Gear Review since day one of the site, and just generally loves being outside doing any outdoor activity. He and his wife race year round, prefer long distance endurance events, and have raced marathons in multiple states nationwide. Recently, Zach added triathlons to his list of endeavors, and has competed in all distances up to a half iron. He has two young boys who are full of energy and get into all sorts of trouble on a regular basis - just like him.

    Brooks Ghost 4’s come in at 9.3 ounces and share the same $100 price tag as the men’s model. When it comes to shoe prices these days, it is hard to find a good pair at or below $100. To a true runner, this seems a little crazy…as each shoe may only last you a few months, and suddenly your simple sport that doesn’t require much gear costs you over $500/year in shoes alone (not to mention race fees and clothing!)
    So, kudos to Brooks for providing a shoe that will and has lasted me 500 miles without breaking the bank. The Ghost 4’s have been in my rotation for the entire summer running season and have survived the test of time.
    I found the Ghost 4’s to be more responsive and flexible than the bulkier Glycerin’s, yet cushy enough for long runs. Once again, the fit is a tad big again for me. Has Brook’s upsized a touch in the last year? I have been a solid 9.5 since my high school days but perhaps it is time to size down when it comes to Brooks? Despite the added length and roomy toe box, the midfoot wrap kept my foot in place, and the heel cup was a good fit too. I thought you foot get’s longer as you age, hmm! Zach, nice thorough review!
