by fromGreat shoes I've been really happy with the Ghost 5s. They have held up really well for my (indoor and outdoor) mid-distance training and even some cross- and strength training. The shoe is relatively lightweight, isn't bulky, and the mesh has also held up well. I've easily surpassed the 400-500 mile shoe limit and haven't noticed any breakdown, save one rubber nub recently coming loose on the sole. I use orthotics; my heels still fit the shoes perfectly and my toes do not bump against the front of the shoe while running, as they have in other brands.
