Neutral, forefoot, road and track
I've been delighted with my Brooks Ghost 3s, injury free since getting them 900 miles ago, but now need a replacement. Can anyone report on a move from Ghost 3 to Ghost 4? Or to any other successful replacement?
You got 900 miles out of one pair of trainers?
Recovery Runner: Thanks, I think that's what I want to hear. Injury free is to be treated with respect. I'll stick to Ghosts. I'd get a couple of pairs of Ghost 3s if I could find them, but it looks like Ghost 4. Especially if I can get the green version.
Sebastian80: Last 18 months, 900 miles in Ghosts and 600 miles in Wave Riders, and very reluctant to give up on them. In fact, if I can't find new at better than the prices I've just looked at, I might keep them going.
I moved from 3s to 4s and much prefered the 4s, this seems to not be an internet wide opinion though. They changed the way the heel hugs, this suited me. I love Ghosts.
Thank you Jonny Gardner. I've not been running long enough to put on a pair of shoes in the shop and know if they're right for me - every pair feels comfortable when I first put them on. I was advised the Ghost 3s after a gait analysis, and they do seem just right. It's good to know that the 4s could be as good.
How interesting, also have been running in combination of Ghosts and wave riders. (women's versions). Ghosts 4 are great, though for the next pair I am tempted to go for pure flows
It's a combination which has suited me, and I'm worried about changing, so another vote for Ghost 4 is good. I'd hope to move towards something like Pure Flow or even Green Silence eventually. I've tried on Green Silence and they felt brilliant, but I daren't risk them yet.
The new Brooks Summon, which comes out in July is a replica of the Ghost 3 but at £80. Same cushioning and looks identical. Might be worth a try?
goji: I'm getting a little closer to considering Green Silence. On what surfaces, and over what distances do you use them, please?
sensible: just looked them up, could be a link towards track shoes, definitely worth trying on. Thanks.
Thank you, goji. It looks like Ghost 4, though I will try on Summon if I can find them: and if I'm brave enough, I will get myself a pair of Green Silence to experiment with. The hard bit now: making myself part with the money.
colin, brooks silence are going for £29.99 online, must be worth apunt :0)
Well spotted and thanks for that, but I can't find that deal in my size! I'm just back from trying them on again, was indecisive as usual, and am now regretting it. But I shall have them soon!
