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 have been a longtime Asics Kayano fan (15+ years and 50 marathons) and since the Kayano 19, the shoe became too hard and rigid to my taste. The Glycerine gives me the soft cushion support I was looking for. The perfect shoe for a 180 pounder looking for a shoe with lots of cushion.

      Comments about Glycerin 11:

      I'm training for my first marathon, so I'm running 35-45 miles a week at the moment. I have a pair of Glycerin 12s that I love, but I couldn't pass up the sale price on the 11s. I liked the shoes (and price) so much that I quickly ordered a second pair. The 11s seem to run about a half-size smaller than the 12s. This is my first experience with GTX shoes. So far it's been all chilly to cold weather and they're great for that. I hope that holds true when the weather gets hot in the spring. I haven't worn them in rain/snow yet -- I want to keep them looking new for as long as I can!
