Additional Information

Every lace and stitch of the all-new Glycerin 12 running shoe goes above and beyond the standards of comfort. This neutral running shoe for men was inspired by the clouds and designed to feel like running in a meadow toward the one you love. Or maybe just out for a post-run pint. New Super DNA provides 20% more cushioning than BioMoGo DNA, while Ideal Pressure Zones in the outsole optimize pressure distribution from heel to forefoot. And the upper? A conformable saddle wraps the foot, while 3D Fit Print creates a custom fit without adding weight. At just 10.9 ounces, the Glycerin 12 is lighter than ever, but full of new technologies to elevate your run.

    I'm a big guy (6'3, 225) putting in between 25-40 miles per week, and I'm 40. My knees don't appreciate my activity level, but they do appreciate my new shoes. The soft landing helps me find a less 'pounding' rhythm when running. And they look cool.

    Best Glycerin Ever!!!

      Best Uses

      • Endurance Training

      This is by far one of the best shoes I have ever worn. I usually go through about 8-10 pairs of shoes a year and I anticipate having lots of these to help me Run Happy. The shoe has amazing cushioning yet is NOT heavy. It is deceptively light. This would be a phenomenal shoe for those training for marathons and beyond. I would HIGHLY recommend this shoe to anyone needing a neutral cushioned ride but don't want a heavy shoe.

      Fantastic Running Shoe

        I had run in Ghost 5 for about 1 1/2 years about 30-40 miles per week with multiple half and full marathon events and loved them. I then switched to the Ghost 6 for the last 6 months with multiple events, but after running a recent marathon and during the last few weeks of training, I developed knee pain which I never had with the Ghost 5. I recently switched to the Glycerin 12 and wow what an immediate difference. I found the shoe much more stable with no twisting or turning action, better cushion, which all led to smooth running. I now have no knee issues and they feel normal again as with the Ghost 5. I love these shoes and I will keep using them as they seem to work great to minimize the pounding on long runs, which I can dramatically feel in my hips, legs and knees. Wow what a difference!

            I have been buying Glycerin shoes for a few years (10 and 11). I typically run between 6-16 miles. I received this model recently and was surprised that the tops my big toes were getting sore at the end of my 8 mile runs. From looking at the fit, it seems like this model (or my particular shoes) are a bit smaller than previous models. Also, I noticed that the material in this model is more rugged, but might make them a bit stiffer (although this does not seem to be a problem).
