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 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).

    The new Glycerin 12 design has fallen well below my expectations of Brooks. The width of the heel in this shoe is about 3/4" narrower than any previous Glycerin model. This leads to a lack of support and stability on your heel strike. I wear a 2E and this shoe also feels tighter in the forefoot. I have purchased many Glycerins over the years and have always loved the design, fit, and comfort of them but these shoes are just too uncomfortable to wear. I hope they reference the previous model's design when creating the 13.

    Comments about Glycerin 12:

    This is a great shoe...feels great, light, responsive and cushioned. However, with little warning, around 280 miles into the shoe, the cushioning went away. The bottoms of my feet felt like I had just ran a hard 24 miler, and felt like they had been hit was a hammer. Never had a shoe that went away that quick. Im 6'2" 185 pound runner. I like the shoe so much Ive ordered another pair...I will just know the life span of this shoe for me is around 250 miles. Be warned, once you feel the usual signs of shoe wear, you may want to get out of them quickly.

    Awesome shoe. Provides significant reduction for the shin pain that I tend to experience while running. But it needs more color variety. Black or grey patterns go much better with my physical fitness uniform.

        This shoe is great! This shoe is light, and responds great! I love the new inner lining. It is very soft allowing for sock less runs and quick transitions for triathletes. I wouldn't change a thing!

          My first pair of Brooks was the Transcend....which was also my first entry into running...I had nerve damage in my foot and the Doctor suggested I go with a high cushioned running shoe. Well my nerve damage is better and the Transcend was just too much cushioning.....so I went to a Running store that specialized in Brooks and after some time in the store they recommended the Glycerine 12 - I have put about 20 miles on them thus far and I am in love!
