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.

Best running shoes ever

About Me Avid Athlete

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Cushions Impact
  • Durable

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Dry Weather
    • Trail Running

    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.

      These are great shoes, while they last. When I first started wearing these shoes, they were awesome! Fit great, felt great, feet and legs were happy. 250-300 miles later, I had shin splints galore. Couldn't figure out what my problem was, until I wore my Cascadias for a road run one day. No shin splints then, so I am guessing it was just the Brooks cushioning started breaking down. I actually wore these running in the rain and snow a few times. Suprisingly, they kept my feet dry no matter what the conditions were. I would buy another pair, but I wish they would last for 500 miles at their best.

      Not as good as the Glycerin 9's or 7's

      By Tyler B

      About Me Gym Rat

      Pros

      • Lightweight

      Cons

      • Narrow / Tight
      • Poor Cushioning

      Best Uses

        I have about 3 weeks and 50 miles on these now, so they are properly broken in. I can say they have a smaller toe box than the 9's and are not as cushioned either. They are lighter, probably due to less cushioning. I have been brusied on the top of my foot because of the tightness. If I were to loosen them any more they would fall off. Very disappointed since my last two pairs fit like gloves and gave me tons of mileage. Hopefully the 12's are better and not far away, or it may be time to try another brand. Price goes up and quality did not, hopefully your experience is better than mine

        The Best Neutral Shoe out there!

        • Endurance Training

        I run 25-37 miles a week and I've worn a couple of Asics Nimbuses, Mizuno Wave Riders, and K-Swiss Tube Run 100s since I started running years ago, but nothing comes close to Brooks Glycerin 11 when it comes to comfort, cushioning and great over-all feel! It's the best neutral running shoe I've ever owned. I currently have the Gold/Yellow/Gray colorway and my favorite the Blue/White colorway and I'm thinking of getting the orange/gray too. I love this shoe!

        Bought these shoes in late November 2013 and put into my running rotation. Put on about 100-120 miles before significant wear started to show on the outside back of each shoe. I only run about 35-40 miles per week so I expected these shoes to last much longer (I'm 5'9, 158lbs). However, Brooks CS exceeded my expectations on exchanging the shoes out for a one time replacement. Due to this fact, I will continue to stick with Brooks as my shoe of choice. Thank you Brooks!!!

            This is my first pair of Brooks in 4 years. I normally wear a 12.5 but had to go to a 13 in this shoe. I wear orthotics and one has 8mm of lift but the shoes work well with them. I really like the feel of the Glycerin and it seems to be properly cushioned but not too soft. The shoe feels very smooth with a mid-foot strike. Very happy with this shoe so far.

              Glycerin 11 are the best shoes my feet has ever worn. I just wish the Marine Corps had issued these to us instead of New Balance. Maybe then my arches wouldn't be giving out when im 32. The price is well worth the purchase. These are all-purpose for me. Good work Brooks!

              I got fit for this shoes on vacaction because my previous shoes was giving me problems while running. The store recommended this shoe and it felt amazing the first time I ran on them. There is so much cushioning in this shoe that it is perfect for larger runners/ long runs. I use this as an everyday trainer and will be purchasing another pair in the near future.

                Though there are a handful of great trail running shoes available from Brooks, I have become an avid fan of this model. While it may not be sold as a great trail running shoe, after some months only running trails in the Rocky Mountains, this shoe met the challenge and then some. The support is spot on, and just holding the shoe alone shows a high attention to detail used to construct this under appreciated staple to the Brooks arsenal.

                While it may not have the best traction on ice from experience, few shoes actually do, so I'll continue on training in the snow with this fantastic shoe. Thanks as always Brooks!
