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:

    I walk in to Dick's Sporting Goods to look at the Brooks Ravena. Salesman walks up and asks if he can help. I ask about the Brooks Glycerin 11. He says don't try them on. I ask Why? He says because you'll buy them.

    Tried on the Ravena's first and thought they were really comfortable with excellent support. Then I tried the Glycerin. Hands down the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. It's hard to describe just try them on....

      Comments about Glycerin 11:

      I run in Brooks Glycerin exclusively, and have done so now for six years in a row. I bought a new pair every August and try to squeeze about 400 miles out of each pair. This is actually the second pair of the orange 11th addition I have purchased. I did this only out of a color preference. Not a huge fan of the color choices on the 12th edition, and I love the bright, bright orange!

      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.
