CUSTOMER RATINGS & REVIEWS
I like these shoes. They were replacing another Glycerin 18 from last Spring that I wore out. For people considering Glyerin 18’s — do it! I find them to be as nice as the Glycerin 16. Glycerin is a great Brooks model for medium to long distance neutral pronation runners with comfortable cushion but not too heavy. I think the toe is slightly wider than other models or brands (tried NB similar model and bruised my toes!) As soon as I put on a new pair, they don’t need to be worn in & already feel ready to go run 10 miles or so! Plus, they lasted a couple hundred more miles than my Brooks Ghost, so the extra cost seems to be worth it.
I have worn Glycerins faithfully for the past 8 years. 2 marathons, a handful of 1/2s, more 10 & 5ks than I can count, and all of the miles in between, and I have never had a single issue.... until I got the 18s. Not sure what changed on Brooks’ end but despite running shorter distances (5-8 miles, at least 5 days a week) I am now nursing blisters & blood blisters and a bum calf since my first run in them. Consult the experts at Marathon sports before blindly buying these. I’ll be tapping their expert knowledge again on searching out new shoes as I have ditched my 18s after a few painful weeks of trying to break them in & running on my old 17s will only work for so long.
I love these shoes. I had always bought Ghost before, but switching to these. I would probably buy wide next time for a more roomy fit. They definitely are narrower than ghost. Wonderful customer service!
I had the Glycerin 17 last year and thought it was the most comfortable sneaker I've ever worn. This year's model is just as comfortable, and I love the color! Great sneaker. I don't run, but I walk A LOT.
