Additional Information

Think of the Glycerin 11 as your foot's butler, catering to your every want and need with plush, conformable comfort in every step. The luxury begins with an ultra-comformable upper that uses innovative 3D Fit Print overlays to create structure and reduce weight. We've also removed the midfoot shank to optimize ground contact for a transition that puts the `oo` in smooth. Finished with fresh colors and hot looks, Mr. Belvedere's got nothing on this shoe.

I run 5-10k in tropical heat so any attempts at fancy forefoot/midfoot running quickly degenerates into a relaxed heel-strike. I also run on a concrete path in a large park so cushioning is doubly important.

The smooth ride from the Gycerine is exceptional with no 'slap' on landing and a nice smooth transition even at the end of a 10k run in 99'F/39'C.

In the hand they feel a little heavier than my old Asics Cumulous or the Ghost 6 - but on the feet they feel similar but smoother. Very comfortable uppers feel like a close fitting ski sock and prevent movement and risk of blisters without being too tight.

In the wet they are a bit slippy - but this is improving as I add more miles. I would not recommend them for wet trail running on rocks or on hilly roads but great for flat pavement. Arch support is limited but feels good to me as a neutral runner with average/low arch.

I have wide-ish forefoot and narrow-ish heel and the fit is great. The slightly stretchy (color co-ordinated)laces help to adjust the fit.

Sizing seems true but no half sizes available in Asia. I normally have to go up a full size as my left foot is longer than right and toes can hit the front of the shoe on long runs causing nail pain - but I went for my normal shoe size with the Glycerine and although toe clearance is less than in previous shoes I've not had any issues yet.

The yellow/grey colors of my shoes look great and the bright blue is also nice - but I would have liked the option of a more subdued color scheme so I could wear the shoes to travel and then use them for runs when I arrive (big trainers and hand luggage don't mix).

I'm on the older and heavier side (48/210), so cushioning and comfort are extremely important when looking for shoes. These shoes were great for the first 100-120 miles. I looked forward to putting them on, never any discomfort during run, and never any leg or foot pain during or after run. Unfortunately, I had to retire them by 2 months/180 miles (not close to the expected 300 - 500 miles). Somewhere in the 150 mile range they started feeling loose and sloppy in the toes. By 175 miles the soles were worn out on the balls of my feet and started causing me pain. I NEVER wore these for anything but running, so I didn't lose miles to casual walking.

5 stars for initial fit and comfort, 2 stars for durability. Due to the price, I can't get past the durablilty problem, so my overall rating skews toward the lower rating. I'll be looking for a different shoe that lasts a little longer.

Cried when my Glycerin 9's wore out after around 400 miles. Local Brooks rep convinced me to try the Ghosts but I had bad ankle pain and shin soreness after just a few miles. Exchanged for the Glycerin 11's and I'm glad to be back. Have a slightly different stride than my 9's but no pain and legs felt great after my first run. Hopefully they will be as good as the 9's after they break in a bit.

Stopped wearing after 3 months

Pros

    Cons

    • Poor Cushioning
    • Uncomfortable

    Best Uses

      Bought these after trying on in store and was told they were the best. After 3 months they seem like running with bricks on. ZERO cushioning, and just overall uncomfortable. They were in rotation with Nike Pegasus+ 30, Mizuno Wave Rider 16. I am not sure if they should be as soft as my Pure Connects, but these are currently out of rotation.

        Really great shoes. Im a beginner runner and used to run with nike air free 5.0 this caused me minor pain on my left knee and anckle. I bought the brooks gycerin and no more pains even training on concrete. I ran around 20 miles so far and love them. I hope that the shoes keep performing like this...

        Bad for Certain Strides

            The outside walls got large holes due to my outside of the foot strike. If your natural stride puts a lot of weight on the outsides of the shoe with every stride, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND these shoes for you.

              I have been buying glycerins for the past 6 years and have loved them. I also run in ghosts, pure grit, and pure flows. All great shoes but, the glycerins are my go to shoe. They are always comfortable, and provide all the support I need. I always recommend Brooks to my HS athletes and about 90% of them run in them now.
