Brooks Ghost 4
WHAT'S NEW? Extra cushioning, and different flex grooves that give an easier heel-to-toe transition.
WE SAY This shoe's predecessor won our Editor's Choice award in October 2010 - it's close but no cigar for version 4, but it's still an impressive shoe. The flex grooves on the sole and a higher toe spring (an Aladdin's slipper effect at the front) made for a very quick ride. Brooks' premium cushioning in the midsole gave testers a very comfy experience, although a few complained of irritation from the heel counter. A solid everyday training choice for neutral runners.
