Great shoe, as expected, but quality seems to have got worse over time
on 21 February 2014
I've ran in brooks ghost since I started running. I've worn my way through two ghost 4 pairs, three ghost 5 pairs and I've now moved up to the ghost 6. Getting through shoes so quickly price is more important than colour which is why I ended up with the seemingly flash-Gordon inspired silver/red/yellow when I'd have much preferred the other colour.
Anyway, the shoes are great and I won't be looking at another brand just yet my overall feeling of difference for these over the 5s is that they are so much lighter. Other than that it's still the great shoe it always was. My only gripe is that with these shoes and none previous there are noticeable manufacturing type artefacts. Glue is smeared over the joins between the grip and the sole and the stitching quite messy. It won't bother me to run in but when your buying a £100+ shoe I'd expect better quality and I hope it's not a sign of brooks letting standards slip.
