Review of GORE-TEX® technology: Brooks Ghost 6

Brooks Ghost 6


Many companies are using GORE-TEX® technology in their shoes. The Brooks Ghost 6 is one of these shoes. The GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort footwear laminate makes the shoe waterproof and breathable, and the high carbon content of the outsole makes the shoe longer lasting than usual.

Running footwear with GORE-TEX® product technology provides protection against weather conditions as the shoes are guaranteed to keep you dry and include windproof materials. They are also breathable which combined with keeping your feet warm is ideal!

The Brooks Ghost shoes are a neutral shoe. I tried a size 9 in regular width, but usually wear wide shoes which affected my comfort slightly. They fit as normal for a size 9, are flexible and are stylish and comfortable otherwise. Think of the discomfort of your feet during a run in the rain or a run when your shoes became wet along the way, and now you can avoid that problem with GORE-TEX® footwear. These are a great shoe for winter! On various runs in cold temperatures and rain, my feet stayed warm and dry. I would recommend giving these shoes a try if you are looking for a neutral shoe, and I love the dark colors!
