Brooks Ghost 10 Performance Review

For runners, it is important that they can have shoes of their own. Of course, for me, running shoes are also one of the most important items of equipment. But for enthusiasts who first take an interest in this kind of  sport often find themselves bewildered and dazzled by the various running shoes in the market and know not how to choose a suitable one.

In the past few years, I’ve experienced many shoes as well, but it was not until I met this Brooks Ghost 10 that I knew it was the right one. However, I had not meant to promote something deliberately, but I’d like to share with you my experiences today and if you happen to be into this shoes, you can also check the article which might be helpful to you.

There is nothing novel in the shoe box, only Brooks’s striking logo printed on the outside. It is overall simple, but somewhat eye-pleasing as well.

For the shoes which is the object of today, its main color is dark blue, giving me a sense of sedation. The light blue Brooks logo with white midsole and colored shoelace makes the whole shoes vigorous in the appearance instead of rigid.

The front side is highlighted with a “domineering” look. The anti-collision material on the toe is also marked with Brooks’ logo.

Talking about the “DNA” in the heel, I think I can not praise it enough. It is adopted in the shoes to provide comfortable shock absorption when you are walking and strong rebound when you are running.

When the material is subjected to rapid impact, the density increases sharply and the resistance  increases instantaneously. And when external force disappears, the material can be completely restored to its original state without changing its nature, which, in my view, is rather magical.

The rear block cushion can greatly improve the shock response, so that the performance of partial cushion is not affected by the whole cushion and runner can move more flexibly. As you can see there are many grooves. And it is the OMEGA groove design that makes full use of the groove space to achieve flexible cushioning effect.

And the rubber sole of the front increases the friction between the shoe and the ground, thus offering excellent grip for runners on both dry and wet grounds. And the soft sponge can help runners who are used to land with forefoot run much longer for it relieves fatigue of the feet.

The high stretch mesh upper has the perfect wrapping, breathable and supportive fabric, with the lightweight 3D printing technology used to strengthen the support, so that the running shoes have a light and comfortable excellent texture.

The super resilient shoelaces with the small shoelace holes makes the wrapping very excellent and  reduces tightness of the insteps so that wearing becomes more comfortable. Initially, I had thought Mizuno’s laces are first-rate, but this Brooks sneaker seems to perform better in this aspect. The materials used are not only more textured, but also much more elastic.

There’s a lot of printed information on the underside of the insole. The heel is semicircular and concave, which fits our heel very well, increasing comfort and wrapping.

Overall:
Brooks Ghost10 is overall an excellent sneaker and has brought me many surprises. By running in different kind of roads, the shoe’s grip, cushion, support, wrapping and protection for the foot are all of the first level. The downside is that the breathability is moderate. In short, the Brooks Ghost10 is suitable for most beginners and intermediate runners with high cushioning requirements, but for runners in pursuit of speed, they can opt for lighter, faster running shoes.
