ADVERTISEMENTS

The uppers of the Brooks Ghost 10 The preceding link takes you to Amazon.com and the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 differ quite a bit.

The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 The preceding link takes you to Amazon.com has no-sew overlays that run from the saddle and spread out towards the midsole to really give you a good hold.

The Brooks Ghost 10, on the other hand, makes use of thin 3D Print overlays that pull the saddle towards the back of the shoe and provide a good coverage.

However, it does not come with overlays on its toe box but rather makes use of engineered mesh to provide structure and support.

This allows the Brooks Ghost 10 to provide comfort in the toe box and room to big bunions. Because the overlays on the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 cover the bunion window, it might provide a tighter fit in that area.

Both running shoes come with a stitched-on toecap to increase the durability at the front of the running shoes.

The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 also has some stitches at the back of the shoe to increase the amount of support there.

The Brooks Ghost 10 is more seamless than the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17, but both running shoes are intended to minimize irritation through their uppers.

The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 might provide an overall tighter fit than the Brooks Ghost 10, but you should still be able to get a good amount of support around the midfoot from the Brooks Ghost 10.

The Brooks Ghost 10 and the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 make use of the same type of midsole material, but the way their midsoles are put together differ.

The Brooks Ghost 10 comes with a crash pad under the heel, while the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 comes with a full-length crash pad that runs along the entire length of the midsole on the lateral side.

Both are meant to provide soft landings with smooth transitions to toe-off thereafter, but running shoe lab tests have shown that the heel of the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 might feel a bit firm to both men and women, while the heel of the Brooks Ghost 10 is quite cushy.

The amount of forefoot cushioning is above average in both the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 and the Brooks Ghost 10 and have been found to be on a similar level, according to running shoe lab tests.

However, if you are looking for an overall soft ride, the Brooks Ghost 10 should be able to deliver that more than the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17.

The strength of the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 lies in the fact that it has a very long post on the medial side to control overpronation.

The Brooks Ghost 10 is considered to be stable by running shoe lab tests, but because it is a neutral cushioning running shoe for runners who do not need any kind of stability or support, it does not come with a pronation control device like the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17.

Therefore, the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 offers much more stability and support to overpronators who need it, and it is rated high on the stability scale of running shoe lab tests.

Both the Brooks Ghost 10 and the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 provide a good amount of separation in their outsoles for shock dissipation and absorption.

The Brooks Ghost 10 is a bit more flexible than the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17, according to running shoe lab tests, but they are both somewhat stiff for men and offer a moderate amount of flexibility to women.

The women's version of the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 weighs approximately 8.9 oz (252 grams), and the Brooks Ghost 10 for women weighs 8.5 oz (241 grams).

The men's versions of the shoes weigh 10.9 oz (309 grams) and 10 oz (284 grams), respectively, with the Brooks Ghost 10 being the lighter one.

Making a decision between the Brooks Ghost 10 and the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 is an easy one because these two running shoes are meant to be worn by different types of runners.

If you are a neutral runner, the Brooks Ghost 10 was made for you, and if you are an overpronator who needs lots of stability and support, the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 would be the one to go with.
