These shoes are just as cushioned as marketed, and are made for those with a neutral stride. When you first put them on, they don't seem to have much arch support, but after wearing a few days, the sole starts to mold to your foot and provides more support. I had left tibial sesamoid repair 9 weeks ago, and the 10mm heel/toe drop in this shoe helps to put less pressure on my forefoot while the cushioning helps to protect the area as it heals as well. The sizing is as expected: I wear an 8 in dress shoes but an 8.5 in most running shoes, and Brooks Glycerin and Ghost models are no exception. My left foot is a little bit on the wide side, but these shoes accommodate just fine. Due to the surgery, I haven't done much walking or running in these shoes yet, but I recommended them to my sister so she got a pair and says running in them is great! I always stock up on Brooks shoes in June/July when they closeout the old models. I love that Sierra Trading Post has them for such an incredibly great deal!!!
