Comments about Mens Brooks Glycerin 11 Running Shoe:
I have high arches and narrow heels with a neutral gait and mid-foot strike, and finding running shoes that fit has always been a challenge. I ran in Adidas Boston Classics for a decade - and still have 2 pairs in "strategic reserve" tucked away in the closet. The Glycerin 10 fit well, but did not have good transition from strike to toe-off, good cushion but not enough rebound/bounce. The Glycerin 11 somehow nailed the transition behavior for me. My strides are more efficient than in the Boston Classics (evidenced by very quiet foot strikes), and although there is substantially less cushion, I don't have joint pain or other problems after a run. The Glycerin 12 definitely has more cushion, but for me the loss in lateral and transitional accuracy makes it less attractive than the 11's. My usual distance is 5-6 miles, a few times a week.
Feels true to size
