Updates to Brooks Ghost 10 GTX

  • The Brooks Ghost 10 GTX is a road shoe that’s designed for neutral runners. The design is mostly similar to the Ghost 9 GTX, but the façade of this version is more streamlined to accommodate the modern tastes of contemporary runners. A black mesh makes up most of the upper, though it’s covered by thin overlays that have understated color patterns.
  • The midsole unit has foam reinforcements on the heel section, ensuring steadiness throughout the running session. A full-length BioMoGo DNA unit cushions the foot and shields it from the impact forces.
  • Two rubber compounds are used for the outsole unit. They are generous in thickness, making sure to be long-lasting and protective against aggressive wear-and-tear.

Brooks Ghost 10 GTX size and fit

The Brooks Ghost 10 GTX employs standard length measurements in its construction. With this, runners can choose the size that they usually want. The width profiles are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women.

Outsole

The heel area of the outsole makes use of the HPR Plus, a durable compound that is resistant to abrasion. It shields the back part of the platform from impact, as well as wear-and-tear. It also provides surface traction.

In the forefoot section is blown rubber. It’s a softer and springier rubber unit that provides additional cushioning on top of its protective and traction-ready nature.

The entire sole unit has been configured to deliver maximum cushioning and flexibility to the foot of the wearer. A noticeable thickness permeates most of the midsole units of Brooks’ footwear line, yet they’re also filled with flex grooves. Having such a design unlocks a comfortable yet movement-friendly experience for the runner.

Midsole

BioMoGo DNA is a foam material that’s constructed to follow the individual needs of the wearer’s foot. It contours itself to the shape of the underfoot, thus giving support to areas that don’t usually receive it. It is made using environmentally friendly materials and techniques.

The crash pad in the heel is designed to be segmented. Its purpose is to isolate the impact forces, limiting it to the back portion to prevent the entire foot from receiving the shock. It’s coined as the Caterpillar Crash Pad.

Additional cushioning and litheness are offered by the S-257 Cushsole, which is placed right above the central midsole unit.

Even more underfoot support is afforded by the Profile Sock Liner. This unit is made out of BioMoGo foam. Thus it can support the curves of the underfoot. It can be removed or replaced with custom orthotics.

The Omega Flex Grooves in this model have been deepened to provide more flexibility for the foot of the wearer. They can be seen throughout the forefoot and midfoot areas of the platform.

Upper

The primary material used for the upper unit of the Brooks Ghost 10 GTX is engineered mesh. It protects the foot from the elements while allowing air to circulate in the foot-chamber, therefore giving a cool and dry in-shoe experience.

Waterproof protection is ensured by the Gore-Tex® membrane, one of the most trusted material providers in the market. Its purpose is to stave off water infiltration entirely.

The Element Lining is a textile that’s able to keep moisture from accumulating in the shoe. It’s soft and smooth, as well. It acts as the inner sleeve of the Ghost 10 GTX’s upper.

The synthetic overlays give structure to the façade. They also secure the foot in place, preventing it from wobbling during the running session.

The Strobel Last is a design aspect that involves the stitching of the upper to the footbed. It enhances comfort and durability.
