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.

Comments about Glycerin 11:

This is a great heavyweight trainer. My go-to shoe is the Brooks Launch - in my opinion, there exists no better mid-weight trainer on the market. The downside to the Launch is the durability; my 6'-4", 200+ lb. frame breaks them down in 200 miles or less. I'm about 50 miles into the Glycerin and they still feel brand new. They did take a good dozen miles to break in, unlike the Launch which are ready to run a half marathon right out of the box. I'm hopeful these will hold up much better for training and increase race performance when I wear the lighter Launch in an event.

    Great Endurance Shoe

      Best Uses

      • Dry Weather
      • Endurance Training
      • With Orthotics/Inserts

      Comments about Glycerin 11:

      I race 10k and half marathon races and run 30-35 miles/week on pavement. This is my 3rd pair of Glycerin 11s. They hold up well until 400 miles and then need to be replaced. I'm 53 and have narrow feet, with low arch and slight under pronation. I do use orthotics so can't comment on arch support. These shoes are very comfortable with good cushioning and I have never experienced knee or shin pain with them. Definitely my go-to shoe for both training and races!

        Great shoe. I had the Glycerin 10s and loved them, so I thought I'd give this one a try. LOVE THEM! I think they are even better than the 10s. They feel lighter and have a better feel on the foot. Good cushioning, and I'm a bigger runner 6'2" and 240, so that tells you something. I highly recommend them!
