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.

        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!

          Comments about Glycerin 12:

          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!

          Comments about Glycerin 12:

          Overall for the price i was not impressed with the materials or the cushioning. The shoe is more durable than I expected given the materials and they are well put together but I was expecting a more cushioned ride. I could not imagine using these for long distance runs. There are other alternatives out there at this Price point
