Style #120137

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-comfortable 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.

The Glycerin 12 is now available – now with Super DNA for a more cushioned ride with less weight.

I love this shoe! I am in love with the PureProject line, but I wanted something with a little more cushion for those super long marathon training runs. I was surprised at how light this shoe is for how much cushioning is involved. They are also a really smooth and quiet shoe. It just comfortable all around! I love these shoes so much I convinced my husband to get a pair as well.

Had a pair of Glycerin 11s that I wore out in a few months, so I bought another pair. Unfortunately, the second pair rubbed a deep, painful blister into the top of my right big toe joint. The fabric is flimsy and wears out quickly if you are an avid runner. I wish Brooks would make a wider toe box and use more durable fabrics. The plastic around the front of the shoe is uncomfortable. I had to send them back but Brooks was understanding and will send me a full refund. I've recently switched to another brand that fits like a glove and doesn't dig into my gnarly dancer's feet.

      Comments about Glycerin 11:

      I am a novice runner - currently training for my 4th half marathon (but this was after a year off from running). I average 20-30 miles/ week. I just replaced my "other brand" that I've been running in for years...so far, I have to say (3 runs in), that I LOVE these shoes! They are roomier in the toe box, feel light on my feet, and required zero break-in time. My race is in a week, so we'll see how they do in the long run, but for now, I'm VERY happy with them! Bonus - I love the design (I have the neon yellow).

          Comments about Glycerin 11:

          I originally bought the Glycerin 11 shoe a few years ago to try to aid my daughter's plantar fascitis, which had ruined her cross country season. The doctor said her case was the worst he had ever seen on a high school athlete. We tried everything short of surgery to help remedy this. This shoe saved her feet! She didn't have to have surgery, stopped wearing her orthotics, and no longer needed the stretch sleeping socks. She has had no swelling or pain since she switched to these shoes. They have been the miracle we were looking for. She is on her 4th pair of 11's now, and each pair has been consistent in fit and wear. This mom couldn't be happier with the product-- you gave my girl back a pain-free long run! She's signing up for her first half-marathon in a month.

              I probably need a little more stability, but the shoes are comfortable and work for the amount of running that I do. The color is a little brighter than I wanted. Overall, I enjoy my new running shoes.

                        I am on the treadmill 5 mornings per week and wound up with very painful plantar fasciitis. I went to physical therapy and asked the therapist if she could recommend a brand of shoes. Immediately, she suggested Brooks because of the gel in the soles. I'm back on the treadmill and my feet are feeling better. Still working on improving with PT, but the shoes have been a huge asset.
