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 women was inspired by the clouds and designed to feel like running in a meadow toward the one you love. 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 9.1 ounces, the Glycerin 12 is lighter than ever, but full of new technologies to elevate your run.

    I have bought every version of Glycerins since the 4s and loved all of them...until the 12. The 12s have undergone a major redesign and I find that they're just not as supportive in the spots I need. As someone who has back and hip issues, I have always loved Glycerins for their arch support. It seems like they've taken that material that provided the arch support and spread it out across the shoe, instead of just putting it in the arch. While that sounds great on paper and it does make the shoe lighter, it also seems to make it a little less stable and less supportive. I'm sure it's a fantastic shoe for others, but I don't think the 12s are for me.

    I love my Glycerine 11. Brooks has really catered to each foot type. I wore the Ariel's until I recently received custom made orthotics that correct my over pronation. I was told to buy Brooks Glycerine because they are a neutral shoe. The Glycerine 12 is not neutral. It is for over-pronators.

    Love these shoes.

    About Me Rarely Work Out

    Pros

    • Comfortable
    • Good Arch Support
    • Lightweight
    • Pronation Control

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Work

      I work in a hospital and do 2-3 miles of walking each work day. I also am a supernator (serious under-pronator)with scarring from a ruptured plantar fascia. These shoes are very good at stabilizing the rolling of my feet to the outside. The fit is good. They provide adequate arch support, but I could probably use more. However, overall, they allow me to do all that walking without having aching feet in the end of a 12-hr shift. I also like the color choices for this shoe. Mine are the navy.

        This is my 4th pair of Brooks running shoes. These are the most comfortable yet! I've had some ankle and knee pain and as soon as I put these shoes on I don't notice the pain anymore. Talk about good cushioning!

          Love the soft feel of the shoe. Feels comfortable right out of the box. No need to break in. Lots of cushion and makes you feel like you can keep running forever. Haven't ran in for long but so far so good!
