Reliability and versatility are what come to mind for the Brooks Ghost 16. It’s a do-everything daily trainer that can eat up the bulk of your miles.

A newly nitrogen-infused DNA v3 midsole keeps the ride underfoot soft and consistent for walking, running and daily activities. Whether you’re on your feet all day or training for a 5K, the upper gives your foot that familiar Ghost feeling that’s both supportive and plush.

Read what our run testers thought in our full review of the Brooks Ghost 16.


  • Upper: An engineered mesh upper, padded tongue and heel counter, plus enhanced overlays for extra support and a heel lock on the back, give you a tried-and-true fit that locks down your midfoot and contours to the shape of your feet. So no blisters, hot spots or rubbing. Plus, the Brooks Ghost 16 is available in narrow, wide and extra wide widths.
  • Midsole: The Ghost 16 comes upgraded with a DNA Loft v3 midsole foam that’s injected with nitrogen, which then turns from a liquid to a gas. The result is a lightweight ride that’s durable and smooths out your run.
  • Outsole: RoadTack rubber is a new outsole material from Brooks made of rubber and recycled silica. This combined with the DNA Loft v3 midsole makes the Ghost 16 one of the most durable shoes out there.

Why You’ll Love It
