Brooks Ghost 8 Running Shoes Perfect for Father's Day

My husband works in the medical field so he is walking a lot at the hospital. When I say a lot I mean he averages about 10 miles a day, just at work alone. Good quality shoes are very important. Brooks Running shoes are one of his favorite because of the quality.





He was in desperate need of a new pair as he was coming home each night with very sore feet. When he put on the Ghost 8 and stood up, he was in Heaven. He was doing the happy dance. Like the one we do when we cook something that tastes amazing.

He loves these shoes so much that he decided that he would run his very first 10km in them. To say I was a little surprised is an understatement. I mean, he goes to the gym and lifts and works out a few times a week but to do a 10k without training, and at age 42. I fully expected him to be sore afterwards, especially his feet. After he finished and came home he said yes he was sore, but not as sore as he thought he would be. His feet actually felt ok. He said the Ghost 8 had such good cushion and support that he will be wearing them at the next race he does.



Ghost 8 features:

  • BioMoGo DNA Midsole provides adaptive cushioning (BioMoGo DNA is DNA technology blended with the BioMoGo midsole to provide adaptive cushioning throughout the midsole vs. just in the heel and forefoot. BioMoGo DNA midsole includes an organic, non-toxic additive that biodegrades the midsole 50 times faster than traditional EVA when it comes into contact with anaerobic landfill microbes (otherwise known as active, enclosed landfills).
  • Full-Length Segmented Crash Pad allows smooth transitions
  • Omega Flex Grooves provide flexibility while maintaining cushioning


The new engineered material with the mesh upper helps your feet stay cooler and dryer. Nobody likes to have sweaty feet, especially when running a race like my husband did. Even if you don’t run, you still don’t want to be walking around the store and feeling well for lack of a better term “yucky”



Ghost 8 are ideal for people with medium to high arches. I would take a look at all the other models if Ghost 8 isn’t the perfect one for you. There are so many, that there is something for everyone. With Father’s Day coming up, new shoes is a perfect gift.

  10. I love Brooks running shoes. I hope you guys are tracking how many miles he is getting in these shoes because after a certain amount they aren't as great for support. My running shoes turn into regular gym shoes at 350 miles and I won't run in them again at that point. (Those miles count walking around in them as that wears down the shoe too.)

  24. Thank you for this wonderful review on these shoes. It's always nice to know that the shoes you are buying are going to be good on your feet. My hubby is on his feet a lot too and it's so hard to find a good shoe. I will have to buy a pair of these and see what my husband thinks about them. Hopefully his feet won't hurt as much. Thanks again!
