The Brooks Ghost 3 was created to provide maximum comfort and forefoot sprinagbility for the neutral or underpronating runner with moderate to high arches. Runners seeking a soft landing during daily training should strongly consider the lightweight and durable Ghost 3.
This trainer features an insole that provides a close to the ground feel while supporting the arch amply. The latest Ghost 3, features a complete change in the sole along with a decoupled heel. The Ghost 3 has five different pod like areas on the sole as opposed to only two separate areas in the previous model.

Loyal Ghost wearers may not recognize the Ghost 3, as Brooks has added more heft to the Ghost line. Previous Ghost models were extremely lightweight with minimal features. The Ghost 3 has a very respectable average weight of 11.1 oz, in men’s size.
The decoupled heel contains a StackedMogo crash pad that absorbs foot strike impact in truer fashion than previous Ghost models. The forefoot flex grove configuration improves overall flexibility while delivering a very smooth heel to toe transition for the individual runner’s foot.
Brook’s famed Hydrowflow system is once again provided to ensure maximum response to foot strike impact. Perhaps the most noticeable feature in the shoe is the diagonal roll bar. The DRB enhances midsole stability without restricting heel toe transition.
Is Brooks Ghost 3 The Best Running Shoe For Me?
The Ghost can be found in a variety of colors, designs and widths. Some runners have found the Ghost 3 to be slightly narrower than other Brooks models. You may want to choose a Ghost 3 that is ½ a width size higher when you are out shopping for the perfect fit.
Once again, Brooks has gone the extra mile to protect the environment by placing a BioMoGo midsole in Ghost 3. BioMoGo insoles deteriorate at a rate 50x higher than that of ordinary rubber midsoles, making the earth cleaner one shoe at a time.
Runners that have purchased Ghost 3’s have compared them to Asics GEL Cumulus. Some runners found that the Asics had more responsiveness than the Ghost 3. Another caveat of the Ghost 3 was its snug feeling caused by its high arch.
Overall response has been positive to the new Ghost 3. If you have a moderate to high arch and want the security of a stable durable training shoe, this is the right choice.
