Get the most out of every walk and run with the Brooks Ghost Max.

This shoe is full of cushion and comfort thanks to the amount of super soft and bouncy DNA Loft v2 midsole foam underfoot. Our runners loved the smooth ride and cushioned feel in our Brooks Ghost Max review. One of the best shoes for standing all day, the Brooks Ghost Max uses a unique rocker geometry to make your walks and runs feel effortless while taking pressure off of the soft tissues in your feet.

The Brooks Ghost Max will help you do more—whether that is taking another walk around the block, running another mile or working just a little more comfortably.


  • Upper: Breathable mesh. The high volume linear last is accommodating to many different foot shapes and allows you to easily put an orthotic insert into this shoe. A padded tongue and collar complete this comfortable upper.
  • Midsole: a high stack of super-soft DNA Loft v2 foam and Brooks’ GlideRoll Rocker work together to decrease pressure underfoot for protective comfort. The GlideRoll Rocker makes your runs feel effortless and it seamlessly rolls you through your heel/toe transitions.
  • Outsole: A wider last gives you a more stable and protected ride, while a central decoupled outsole provides additional stability that doesn’t interfere with a neutral stride.

Who It’s Best For

The Brooks Ghost Max is a great shoe for anyone who wants a cushioned, effortless ride as they walk or run. It is ideal for those with different foot ailments*, such as plantar fasciitis and Morton’s neuroma because of the GlideRoll Rocker, soft cushioning and lower offset. It also has an accommodating foot shape for those that have thicker orthotic inserts.

*While we at Fleet Feet aim to provide our customers with the best information possible, nothing beats the expertise of a medical professional. If you experience new or worsening pain, consult a doctor or physical therapist before taking any further action.

Why You’ll Love It

You will love how the Brooks Ghost Max helps you effortlessly walk and run in comfort.

Differences Between Brooks Ghost 15 and Ghost Max

The biggest difference between the Brooks Ghost 15 and Ghost Max is the heel-to-toe transition experience. The Brooks Ghost 15 is designed to be flexible and move with your foot, while the Brooks Ghost Max is designed to move for your foot—so it’s slightly more rigid with a rocker for smoother transitions.

Another thing you will notice about the Ghost Max vs. the Brooks Ghost 15 is that the Brooks Ghost Max has more cushion and a taller midsole stack height. To complement the different transition experience, the heel-to-toe offset of the Ghost Max is 6 mm as opposed to the Ghost 15’s 12 mm drop. Brooks added 8 mm more cushion in the forefoot and 2 mm more cushion in the heel of the Ghost Max.

Not for me

Nice looking shoe but too soft and unstable of a cushion for me. Fortunately FF has a great return policy and I was able to exchange them hassle free!

Very few wide width options

BButler 5 months ago Verified Purchase

I would give 5 stars if more colors options were available in wide widths. People needing wide widths like color options too!!

Think I got it way too big for my feet!

Djm 5 months ago Verified Purchase

Very comfortable shoes the only reason I’m not liking it so much is I think I got the width way too big on me I could’ve settled for just wide not extra wide there’s too much room on my toes that I feel like my shoes is going to come off but other than that shoes are so comfortable and walking on it is like walking on clouds. I will recommend this to anyone. Brooks make really comfortable shoes this is my fifth one on that brand. Maybe I can exchange it for a wide.
