I've now put 280ish miles on these and couldn't be happier. They are holding up very well. The tread wear isn't bad. I can see these easily making it past the 500m mark.
I'm officially a Brooks convert & will buy another pair for the fall running season.
Changed from 4 to 5 stars.
These are fantastic, comfortable running shoes. Note: I've only put ~20 miles on them so far, so I cannot speak to their long term durability.
For reference, I am a casual marathon runner. I usually average between 30-40 miles per week, sometimes more during marathon season. I'm 5'8" & 170lbs--so a little on the heavy side. I supinate a tad on my left foot but that has more to do with muscular tightness than inherent gait issues. I used to wear Saucony exclusively but found that their later iterations with the Everun foam simply made their Hurricane & Guide line too uncomfortable to me. So I abandoned ship and jumped on the Brooks train.
When I put these on, I fell in love. Seriously. They are perhaps the most comfortable (read: cushy) shoe I have put on in quite a while. I am coming off a mild knee injury (developed bursitis), and should have waited another week before running again, but these shoes felt so great, I had to test them out.
Let me tell you: they are very comfortable on the run from the get go. No need to break in for me, though I suspect they'll just get better with use. l'm a midfoot striker and felt the cushioning was great. The caterpillar-like tread on the bottom really helps to distribute the force upon impact, especially on unforgiving surfaces like concrete. After my first four-mile test run, everything felt great though my feet were a bit sore (I need add'l arch support which is why I wear orthotics--YMMV). I usually wear orthotics anyway so I just slipped them in this shoe. My next run was a 8 miler with the orthotics and I felt refreshed at the end. Had no problems with the third run.
Fit: as expected. I wear an 11-11 1/2 in dress shoes and 12 in running shoes. I ordered the brooks in 12 and they fit perfectly. (Your experience may differ depending on your feet obvi!)
Design: Importantly, Brooks--unlike Saucony's recent line--has minimized seams on the inside of the shoe. In my other shoes, when I use my insert, my feet ride a little high which causes the forefoot to rub up against the stitching in the inner part of the toebox where the tongue is. This caused mild discomfort and some mild pain after longer runs. In the Ghost 9s, I feel none of that. They are simply very comfortable, well-thought out shoes. Aesthetically they are pleasing so there's that.
So, yeah, Brooks I'm sold. If these last 400+ miles, then you have a new supporter. In any event, if you are looking for a neutral trainer which is supposed to hold up well, then I would take these Ghost 9s on for a try. Bonus: since the 10s will be out next month (July 2017), these are currently on sale for about $90 which is a bargain for the quality you get with these shoes.
The ghosts are great shoes lots of cushioning and stability. I seem to now need a wide toebox and these fit the bill. Only issue is they are heavy so I am going to looking for a light racing pair.
