Running Is Not Cheaper Than Therapy,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Brooks Ghost is the only running shoe I will ever wear. I have been wearing this shoe since Gen 2, and loved all the updates so far with the exception that the Ghost 6 seems to wear down way faster than the previous generations. I am already on my 4th pair on Ghost 6 so far.The Ghost 6 does feel a bit tighter in the toe box than the Ghost 5.
I'm running an average of 100 miles per month on the road, and noticed that these shoes wear down after only two months. I can feel when I need new shoes, I'm getting shin splints and knee pain. This usually happens right around 200 miles on the shoe. I'm a mid-foot striker, the treads in the center section of the sole are completely worn down at that point.
Durability is the reason why I only give 4 Stars. However, I will continue to purchase a new pair every two months because this is the only shoe that works for me.
