Anyone run in the Brooks Ghost 5 or 6 shoe, heard a few reports its not a true neutral shoe, just wondered how people got on with them, going from a Nike Pegasus 29 shoe to these maybe.
Generally these days, shoes with medial posts are classed as STABILITY and those without classed as NEUTRAL.
But all shoes have some level of stability.
I know that some well built 'neutral' shoes are actually more stable than some cheap 'stability' shoes.
The Pegasus is probably one of the most flexible/least stable neutral options out there right now - and the Ghost is one of those quite stable neutral shoes.
So there could be as much of a stability difference as with a 'mild' stability and 'moderate/strong' stability shoe - and generally people wouldn't advise that kind of stability change if your current (stability) level seems to be working for you.
So maybe don't go for the Ghost.
I'm a bit out of touch lately so aren't sure what a Pegasus equivalent might be these days (Mizuno Wave Rider maybe?).
That's when your friendly local specialist running shop comes in.
Use them or lose them.
It is aimed at exactly the same customer as the Pegasus.
I have Ghost 5's and have no complaints. Would have no hesitation recommending them
