- All-day comfort
- Smart support
- Super soft cushion
- Smooth transitions
All Brooks shoes have cushioning, but how it feels can vary across categories and individual shoe styles. For example, the Levitate and Revel, both within the Energize category, offer different levels of of springy cushioning: max spring in the Levitate, more balanced in the Revel. What you choose is totally up to your preference, as each one delivers lab- and runner-tested performance for every mile of your run.
Still not sure if this shoe is the right experience for you?
Within any experience category, different shoes have varying levels of that experience: some may have a little less, while others have an amplified experience. For example, within Cushion, the Ghost offers soft, balanced cushioning whereas the Glycerin provides super soft cushioning.

Choose your support
Your body naturally likes to move in one way. Deviation is how much that movement changes when you go for a run.
Low deviators may find that shoes designated "neutral" work best for them.
Runners with high deviation benefit from Brooks' support technologies and may want to look for a shoe designated "support".
You may have deviation if:
- You freqently get the same injury
- You pronate or supinate
- Toes point in or out when you walk
- You feel unstable when you balance on one leg
- Hand pressure increases or decreases when you squat with feet together

Soft. Supportive. Super comfy.
Stay in your stride
All our running shoes prioritize comfort, but our GuideRails® technology adds support by keeping excess movement in check. So you stay in your natural stride, even when you get tired.
- Did you know support doesn’t just refer to arch support?
- GuideRails® support aids your feet, knees, and hips.
Super soft cushion
Our softest cushioning is called DNA LOFT. We designed it to feel super soft under your feet, yet still durable and responsive. And did we mention that it’s lighter than ever?
- Super soft, but never too squishy.
- Our cushioning technologies all start with DNA because they react to your unique stride.
All smoothness, all the time.
We kept plenty of that super soft cushioning in the middle of the shoe, so going from heel to toe feels incredibly soft and smooth as you run.
- No matter how your foot strikes the ground, smooth transitions ensure comfort.
- If we got it right, you shouldn’t even notice transitions.
Origin stories: the Glycerin
The story of the Glycerin begins in the late 1990s — in true ‘90s northwest grunge spirit, the name was inspired by the song Glycerine by the band Bush. From early HydroFlow, to our new DNA LOFT, the Glycerin has always had our most innovative cushion tech.
The Glycerin will always function as our premium soft shoe, and as we grow options for runners through support and fit we see the Glycerin line continuing to be a favorite among runners.
