The Ghost is Brooks’ most iconic running shoe. It’s known for versatility, balanced cushioning, and dependability. Many of our team members have been wearing the Brooks Ghost for over a decade, so they were eager to review this year’s version.

They found the Ghost 15 living up to their expectations with a smooth ride, custom-like fit, and plush interior feel. It offers ample cushioning for a cloud-like feel that helps you enjoy each run.

The Ghost 15 proves superior to previous models in its sustainability. As a carbon-neutral running shoe, it’s part of Brooks’ effort to create more sustainable running shoes for a healthier planet.

Our reviewers highlighted that the Brooks Ghost 15 not only continues its legacy of dependability but also shines with its enhanced DNA Loft V2 cushioning and eco-friendly design.

The Brooks Glycerin line has extra cushioning for daily or long-distance runs and features a breathable, streamlined upper. Even the tongue has additional padding and doesn’t irritate the foot at all, even when tied securely.

This brand new model features the same DNA LOFT v3 cushioning that runners love, making road running a dream. Cutting-edge nitrogen-infusing technology allows Brooks to maximize softness and comfort. Its improved design gives a better fit than ever before and the broad platform helps stabilize the foot.

The newest version features better heel transition and has excellent traction on asphalt. Don’t be deceived by the relatively simple design of this model; it is a workhorse when it comes to running shoes.

The Glycerin line began back in the 90s and has consistently improved since then, quickly becoming one of the best Brooks running shoes due to its flexibility, fit, comfort, and smooth ride features.

The Brooks Hyperion Max may not be as classic as the Glycerin or Ghost, but it easily made the list as one of our reviewers’ favorites for speed.

The shoe’s uniquely “fast” feel comes from the ultra-responsive, nitrogen-infused DNA FLASH cushioning. Our reviewers felt the shoe offered optimal energy return for everyday runs or race days. The 3D Fit Print technology gives the shoe a custom-like fit, while the stretch-woven upper offers a snug yet plush feel.

Another unique feature of the Hyperion Max is its Rapid Roll technology. The shape of the shoe’s heel and toe propel the runner forward, making transitions feel effortless. Our team members believe this could be the shoe to help you reach a new PR.

The Adrenaline GTS is Brooks’ most famous stability running shoe. It’s an ideal choice for overpronators or runners with flat feet. The GuideRails® technology aligns the runner’s stride to prevent pain, injury, and foot fatigue.

In addition to support, the Adrenaline GTS 23 offers updated DNA LOFT v2 cushioning. It’s perfectly soft without being overly squishy. An engineered air mesh upper offers plenty of air circulation while remaining snug and comfortable.

The Adrenaline GTS is another classic Brooks running shoe that improves year after year. Its motion-control technology dates back to 1996, but our reviewers found the Adrenaline GTS 20 to be the lightest, most comfortable, and most high-performance version yet.

Shoes
original price:$249.95 price:$149.95

The Hyperion Elite 3 is ready for your next race. It’s one of the most advanced shoes in the Brooks lineup with a carbon fiber propulsion plate, secure fitting upper, and nitrogen-infused cushioning.

The Hyperion Elite 3 is considered a super shoe due to its carbon fiber plate, but our reviewers also praised it for other reasons. They found the QuicKnit upper supportive and plush yet remarkably breathable and the DNA Flash midsole soft yet responsive. They did comment on the shoe being firmer than others in the Brooks racing shoe lineup, which may appeal to some runners while being unattractive to others. It’s a firm yet bouncy shoe designed for speed in racing events.

Not all runners like to stay on the pavement, and Brooks understands that. The Brooks Caldera 6 is the ultimate trail running shoe, with a large amount of cushioning and plenty of traction for uneven terrain. The new Caldera also features 48.4 percent recycled materials in the upper, meaning 6.22 bottles were saved from landfills to make each pair.

Nitrogen-infused DNA LOFT v3 cushioning combines with an ultra-lightweight design and TrailTrack rubber outsole to create an unrivaled trail running experience. The TPU toe cap protects your toes from debris and rocks.

Our reviewers also appreciated the shoe’s secure fit with quick-drying air mesh, a lace keeper, and front and back points to attach gaiters. Trail running doesn’t get more comfortable than with the new Caldera 6.
