Get excited Neutral runners: the Glycerin, Ghost, and Summon have all received updates that will blow your mind. Similar to the feeling I have from the amazing dessert I recently devoured at West Seattle’s finest bakery, Bakery Nouveau (if you are local, please go immediately and eat the Summer Dream dessert). All this tastiness gave me a little inspiration for this post.
To provide some insight into the differences among these shoes, let’s talk dessert. Take the Glycerin 9. This ultra-plush, high-tech superstar is like an incredibly decadent cake. With the custom cushioning of Brooks DNA now running the entire length of the midsole, every step in these babies is like biting into several layers of rich, creamy, endorphin-releasing goodness. The extended caterpillar crash pad adds even more sweet to your step by breaking up the outsole into independent, yet integrated segments, so when you lay your foot down from heel to toe, the transition is deliciously smooth. Add Omega flex grooves for premium forefoot flexibility and a tuned density midsole for comfort that corresponds with gender needs, and this shoe is sure to satisfy your indulgent cravings.
The Ghost 4, my personal favorite, is like a tasty piece of pie: perfectly balanced and always reliable. We’ve added a big dollop of whipped cream on top with the introduction of Brooks DNA so you get the amazing feel of adaptable cushioning, while the enhanced caterpillar crash pad delivers a delectable lay-down from heel to toe. And with Omega flex grooves now underfoot; your forefoot gets more dynamic flexibility so your push-off is nice and fluid. Check out the Ghost 4 for a ride that’s easy as pie.
Rounding out the Neutral category, the Summon 3 is like your favorite cookie. It’s nothing fancy, but always hits the spot. This shoe delivers an incredible performance at a great value and now has a sleeker aesthetic with mouthwatering colors. From chocolate chip lovers to oatmeal raisin fanatics, the Summon 3 is scrumptious treat for any Neutral runner.
All three of these Neutral desserts… er, shoes are available now on BrooksRunning.com; satisfy your sweet tooth today!
