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.

      Comments about Glycerin 12:

      The expert at my local running store, who is also my marathon training coach, convinced me to change running shoes. He knew a more responsive, lighter and less bulky shoe could help with the efficiency of my running form. The shoes transformed my form overnight and I will never switch back to my old favorites!

        Comments about Glycerin 12:

        Love these shoes. I had the 11s and ordered a 1/2 size up in the 12s. I have a pair for work and a pair for gym. They cushion my feet at work and prevent foot fatigue.

        So lightweight for a workout. They feel like an extension of my feet!

        My 11s ended up with tears in the toe fabric, hoping this size up keeps them lasting longer.

              These were a gift. She is pleased. We both have the wide size. I would like mine with a bit wider fore foot and much wider base.

                I wear them everyday all day. My feet were hurting from standing up so much before i got this brand. Now they do not hurt anymore. I've tried the 10, 11 and now the 12 in the same name and type shoe. I love BROOKS!!!!!

                  Comments about Glycerin 12:

                  Cursed with narrow feet, I have always worn the Glycerins because they fit my hotdog feet better than most shoes do, however, I never had much to rave about besides the narrow fit...until now! The Glycerins of years past felt cushy, chunky, and a little bit too heavy, they were the type of shoes a Barrower-sized person would want to curl up in and watch hours of Netflix. Not exactly a fast shoe. But it seems that the Glycerin 12 has gone on a month-long-juice-only-cleanse and has emerged a lighter, leaner, and dare I say, faster shoe. Friends of Glycerins Past, do not be alarmed by the shoe's sexy make-over, spend a few hours with her and you'll find that she is still the durable, comfortable, dependable shoe you first fell in love with.
