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-comformable 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 run 5-10k in tropical heat so any attempts at fancy forefoot/midfoot running quickly degenerates into a relaxed heel-strike. I also run on a concrete path in a large park so cushioning is doubly important.

The smooth ride from the Gycerine is exceptional with no 'slap' on landing and a nice smooth transition even at the end of a 10k run in 99'F/39'C.

In the hand they feel a little heavier than my old Asics Cumulous or the Ghost 6 - but on the feet they feel similar but smoother. Very comfortable uppers feel like a close fitting ski sock and prevent movement and risk of blisters without being too tight.

In the wet they are a bit slippy - but this is improving as I add more miles. I would not recommend them for wet trail running on rocks or on hilly roads but great for flat pavement. Arch support is limited but feels good to me as a neutral runner with average/low arch.

I have wide-ish forefoot and narrow-ish heel and the fit is great. The slightly stretchy (color co-ordinated)laces help to adjust the fit.

Sizing seems true but no half sizes available in Asia. I normally have to go up a full size as my left foot is longer than right and toes can hit the front of the shoe on long runs causing nail pain - but I went for my normal shoe size with the Glycerine and although toe clearance is less than in previous shoes I've not had any issues yet.

The yellow/grey colors of my shoes look great and the bright blue is also nice - but I would have liked the option of a more subdued color scheme so I could wear the shoes to travel and then use them for runs when I arrive (big trainers and hand luggage don't mix).

I'm on the older and heavier side (48/210), so cushioning and comfort are extremely important when looking for shoes. These shoes were great for the first 100-120 miles. I looked forward to putting them on, never any discomfort during run, and never any leg or foot pain during or after run. Unfortunately, I had to retire them by 2 months/180 miles (not close to the expected 300 - 500 miles). Somewhere in the 150 mile range they started feeling loose and sloppy in the toes. By 175 miles the soles were worn out on the balls of my feet and started causing me pain. I NEVER wore these for anything but running, so I didn't lose miles to casual walking.

5 stars for initial fit and comfort, 2 stars for durability. Due to the price, I can't get past the durablilty problem, so my overall rating skews toward the lower rating. I'll be looking for a different shoe that lasts a little longer.

Comments about Glycerin 11:

I've run in Brooks since 1982 ( I think it was the Brooks Advantage that was my first shoe).

I swear by Brooks although I'll occassionally sway to other brands to keep it honest.

Brooks shoes are consistent. The one thing I hate about shoe makers is changing a model that runs well.

Brooks has managed this aspect well although the Brooks Radius was THE BEST shoe I have ever used for running.

The Glycerin was a good replacement but I miss the Radius.

The Gylcerin does have some durability issues as it doesn't last as long as other models I've used.

Comments about Glycerin 11:

I'm on my 3rd pair of glycerin's. I first night them for a military boot camp like training school and they took a beating. I was so impressed with these shoes that I just kept buying them. Everytime I run I feel like I'm running on a cloud and my heel spurs no longer hurt me. I also bought a pair for my pregnant wife and loves them as well. I use them for gym workouts like weight lifting, circuit training, and of course running. They are a little on the heavier side but I'm ok with that.

Comments about Glycerin 11:

It took about four runs to break this shoe in.
This shoe is well constructed but I would prefer a bit more cushioning. I actually inserted some gel pads from Academy under the original shoe inserts. ( This was the ticket for me)
