A Dependable Daily Trainer, Revamped with a Nitrogen-Infused Midsole

Sure as the sun rises and sets, you can bet the Brooks Ghost will be back each year just as reliable as the one before. The latest iteration, the Brooks Ghost 16, brings some changes we haven’t seen in some time with this model. The most obvious changes include the nitrogen-infused DNA LOFT v3 midsole foam and an enhanced upper.

Brooks has maintained a safe approach to midsole technology, consistently delivering a comfortable underfoot experience. The Ghost 16 midsole foam sees a shakeup for the first time in several generations and is now made with nitrogen-infused DNA LOFT v3. This updated foam is lighter than its predecessors and helps balance softness and responsiveness very well.

The Brooks Ghost 16 also sees a change to the upper, now using an engineered air mesh to balance stretchy comfort and secure structure. This revamped upper helps increase overall breathability, keeping your feet cool throughout your workout while wrapping them in complete comfort.

A reliable daily trainer has many features but one that always comes to mind is longevity. The Ghost 16 meets this criteria with the help of the lightweight, RoadTack rubber outsole, made with recycled silica. This outsole increases the shoe’s durability, allowing you to log more miles in your shoes before retiring them.

To make a great shoe even better, the Brooks Ghost 16 touts a carbon-neutral certification. What this means is Brooks increased the use of recycled content to lower their carbon emissions, then supported carbon offsetting projects to neutralize emissions.
