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.

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.

I run marathons (sub 4) and half marathons (sub 2). I was a huge fan of the Glycerin 10. When the Glycerin 11 came out, I tried it out and it just fell flat. It does not have the same supportive feel of the 10s because the midfoot shank was removed. Unfortunately, in removing this part, they also removed the responsiveness of the shoe and it feels like you are running on dough. This change caused me to buy every last Glycerin 10 on the market and also try out the Mizuno Wave Prophecy 3, which is more similar to the Glycerin 10. Hopefully, they will reintroduce support in the Glycerin 12 model before I swear Brooks off forever.

    Comments about Glycerin 11:

    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.

      Shoe fits true to size, I require a little wider toe-box and the Glycerin is designed with a wider toe box. Has nice cushion on impact

          Comments about Glycerin 11:

          These are my first pair of Brooks and I've put about 300 miles on these babies. I really enjoyed wearing these shoes until I discovered that going up the recommended 1/2 a size wasn't the correct size for me and a full size was too large. I discovered this when I tried on Brooks Ghost 7 (super comfortable) in the same size and started comparing my shoe size using Ghost 7 on the shoe size calculator provided on the site which stated Glycerin 11 is slightly smaller. No wonder I always had foot discomfort. I thought it was my feet and kept pushing onward.

          The shoes are good for long and short distances, walking, jogging, running, etc. if you're feet fit the specific mold. I like the responsive gel and the colors are intense. I really like the vibrant yellow and pink colors.
