Women's Glycerin 11

$150.00 $90.00

Style #120137

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-comfortable 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 love this shoe! I am in love with the PureProject line, but I wanted something with a little more cushion for those super long marathon training runs. I was surprised at how light this shoe is for how much cushioning is involved. They are also a really smooth and quiet shoe. It just comfortable all around! I love these shoes so much I convinced my husband to get a pair as well.

I run marathons (sub 4) and half marathons (sub 2). I was a huge fan of the Glycerin 10. When the Glycerin 11 came out, I tried it out and it just fell flat. It does not have the same supportive feel of the 10s because the midfoot shank was removed. Unfortunately, in removing this part, they also removed the responsiveness of the shoe and it feels like you are running on dough. This change caused me to buy every last Glycerin 10 on the market and also try out the Mizuno Wave Prophecy 3, which is more similar to the Glycerin 10. Hopefully, they will reintroduce support in the Glycerin 12 model before I swear Brooks off forever.

    Comments about Glycerin 11:

    I am a novice runner - currently training for my 4th half marathon (but this was after a year off from running). I average 20-30 miles/ week. I just replaced my "other brand" that I've been running in for years...so far, I have to say (3 runs in), that I LOVE these shoes! They are roomier in the toe box, feel light on my feet, and required zero break-in time. My race is in a week, so we'll see how they do in the long run, but for now, I'm VERY happy with them! Bonus - I love the design (I have the neon yellow).

        Comments about Glycerin 11:

        I originally bought the Glycerin 11 shoe a few years ago to try to aid my daughter's plantar fascitis, which had ruined her cross country season. The doctor said her case was the worst he had ever seen on a high school athlete. We tried everything short of surgery to help remedy this. This shoe saved her feet! She didn't have to have surgery, stopped wearing her orthotics, and no longer needed the stretch sleeping socks. She has had no swelling or pain since she switched to these shoes. They have been the miracle we were looking for. She is on her 4th pair of 11's now, and each pair has been consistent in fit and wear. This mom couldn't be happier with the product-- you gave my girl back a pain-free long run! She's signing up for her first half-marathon in a month.

            I probably need a little more stability, but the shoes are comfortable and work for the amount of running that I do. The color is a little brighter than I wanted. Overall, I enjoy my new running shoes.
