Are you looking for a running shoe that combines comfort, support, and sustainability? Look no further than the Ghost 15, our best-selling running shoe that’s beloved by runners everywhere. And now, it’s even better for the planet.

Let’s start with what makes the Ghost 15 such a great shoe for runners. First of all, it has a trusted fit that ensures your feet stay comfortable and secure, even during long runs. Plus, it features our signature smooth ride and soft cushioning, which make it a favourite among runners who want a shoe that can take them from striding to gliding.

But what about sustainability? We’re proud to say that the Ghost 15 now includes 62.5% recycled materials in the upper. That’s right—over half of the materials used to make this shoe are recycled, which means less waste in landfills and a smaller carbon footprint overall.

And that’s not all. Each pair of Ghost 15 shoes is made with six plastic bottles that have been diverted from landfills. That means that not only are we reducing waste, but we’re also helping to clean up the planet by giving plastic bottles a new purpose.

But what does this mean for you as a runner? Well, for one thing, it means that you can feel good about your purchase knowing that you’re supporting a more sustainable product. But it also means that you’re getting a shoe that’s durable, comfortable, and built to last. By using recycled materials, we’re not sacrificing quality—we’re enhancing it.

So if you’re looking for a running shoe that combines performance, comfort, and sustainability, look no further than the Ghost 15. It’s a shoe that’s ready to take you from striding to gliding, and it’s doing it in a way that’s better for the planet.

Origin stories: the Ghost

In 2008, we introduced a new cushioned shoe, with the goal of creating a go-to neutral ride for runners. At the time, our director of product management was known for running at night — and thus the shoe was nicknamed “the Ghost,” which eventually became its official name.  

Runners have loved the Ghost for its soft cushioning, smooth transitions, and reliability as a daily trainer. Over the years, we have continued to make updates, ensuring the Ghost remains a go-to among runners. Enhancements include improving the fit of the upper for distraction-free comfort mile after mile and an updated midsole with DNA Loft v2 for blissfully cushioned strides.  

Bottom line, the ideal time of day to exercise is when it is best for you. Although more research is needed in this area to draw a conclusion on exactly what time of day is the best to exercise, what we do know is that long-term exercise does in fact improve aerobic capacity, cardiac function, management of BMI, and strength. So, the evidence points to moving your body for overall wellness regardless of what time you do it.
