The brooks ghost 8 gtx running shoe for men takes the ghost 8 combination of balance, cushion, and lightweight materials and wraps them in a high-performance gore-tex membrane. This shoe has the same sweet fit and feel but with a waterproof, breathable upper. It's been updated with a new full-length segmented crash pad for super-smooth heel-to-toe transitions while it still boasts omega flex grooves for optimized flexibility. Biomogo dna in the midsole offers adaptive cushioning and responsiveness.

So, with that in mind, I really don't like these shoes at all. The main reason is that they feel stiff as a plank of wood, with almost zero flexibility from toe to heel. My feet start to cramp up after a few miles of stomping around in these because they can't move and flex the way they want to. Even after 50+ miles on them they haven't seemed to "break in" any more and are still very stiff.
I'm an experienced runner but I do realise that running shoes are very personal, and most other reviews are excellent, so take this more as a caution. For anyone coming from racing shoes, or lightweight, minimal style footwear, I think you will struggle in these. They're still very well made, fit great, off a lot of support, are super comfortable and seem very durable. Brooks are a fantastic brand! But these just aren't for me.
