I only had about 250mi on my glycerin 17’s and the midsole wore out. This isn’t the first time as I have been running the glycerins since version 14 and experience knee pain and can hear the contact difference on the road. Customer support was great and they are sending me ghost 12s to replace. Awesome experience however my shoes won’t be here for 12/14 days ... I can’t go that long without a run. Went to Dicks and bought the revel 3 just to get by. All I can say is wow .. what a running shoe. Perfect combination from light weight to cushion. First run and no knee pain. Awesome shoe and I’ll be a brooks runner for life after the customer service. I don’t write reviews at all but felt compelled to.
I have finally found the shoe I have always been looking for. All my running shoes are Brooks but never really found my go to shoe until now. Why? The heel to toe drop ratio, the weight of the shoe and the fit. Just ran the Chicago Marathon in this shoe and did not disappoint. I would like to see maybe a little more spring/bounce in the Revel 4. I’m 5’11 and weigh 167 pounds.
This is the Brooks shoe I have been waiting for. The 8mm drop is the perfect balance of a more natural running stride without being too taxing on the calves. The midsole is the perfect blend of being soft without being squishy. The upper fits like a glove as most Brooks shoes do, and the weight is light! This shoe is what I have been waiting for. The Ghost has too high of a drop for me and some of the other shoes from Brooks just feel a bit too heavy . I use this shoe on my daily runs of 3-5 miles and I have no doubt it could work for a 1/2 marathon or full marathon. I hope they continue this trend of lower drop, lighter weight cushioned running shoes. Well done Brooks!
