I run on paved streets five or six days a week.I have had this model of Brooks before,so I had an idea how they would feel. These shoes are better in every way that I would expect.

Level 5 cushioning - Not

By Andris

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens Brooks Glycerin 14 Running Shoe:

I am a bigger guy (225 lb) and need good cushioning to ease the pounding on my joints - especially the knees. I have been using New Balance 1080v's and Adidas Energy Boost with good results. The Asics Gel NImbus were also great until they shrunk the toe box. Seeing the great reviews for the Brooks Glycerin, I thought I would give them a try. But one run was enough to realize that these shoes just don't provide the cushioning I need. The fit and finish of the shoes are great, but no way are they at the same level of cushioning as the other shoes I listed. I felt I was running in bricks. I exchanged these immediately for NBs.

      Comments about Mens Brooks Glycerin 14 Running Shoe:

      I've worn the Glycerin for 2 years after New Balance ruined my favorite heavy runner shoe by turning it into a bedroom slipper. Now Brooks has made the Glycerin 14 so undersized and narrow, I can't find a width to fit my foot. They are not sold in anything wider than 2E, but I doubt Brooks' version of 4E would fit my foot. I am going have to abandon Brooks for another brand. Too bad. I really liked the Glycerin.

      Comments about Mens Brooks Glycerin 14 Running Shoe:

      I was a loyal New Balance customer for the last 14 years, mainly because NB is made in the USA. I finally decided to try a new brand and after some research, I went with Brooks Glycerin 14. From the first time I put them on, they felt like no other shoe I have ever worn. They feel like pillows for your feet. The only down side is that they do tend to ware out a little fast. I have about 300 miles on my Glycerin's and it appears they will not make it to 500 miles.

      Comments about Mens Brooks Glycerin 14 Running Shoe:

      These were comfortable from the start, but the durability was seriously lacking. I normally get 350-400 miles from a pair of shoes. These were showing significant tread wear at 150 miles. At 250 miles, they are significantly worn to the point where they are no longer usable for running. I expected a little more for the price. I should have used the 90 day return policy, so I can't be too bitter about it. I just won't be buying these again.

          Comments about Mens Brooks Glycerin 14 Running Shoe:

          I have ran in the pair I have for just over 240 miles. I really think they are an average running shoe. I have used these shoes for runs that are usually 10-12 mile range each time I run in them and sometimes more. I actually used them in a half marathon. I usually average about 40 miles a week running. My primary use for these is for recovery runs and runs of high mileage.
          The cushioning is very good. The durability of the shoe is solid. I have just over 240 miles on this pair of shoes and I can tell you that there is still a fair amount tread there. The cushioning is still there to make it a soft ride. Those are about the only good things. The shoe is too pointy in my opinion. This is the only shoe where I have had minor toe pain in. The heel of the shoe is horrible. I have had blisters on the back of both ankles. I even tried the heel lock method and that still did not work. The shoe is just not comfortable. The only reason why I ran the amount of mileage in this pair Is to justify the cost. Otherwise for the same price I would recommend the Asics Gel-Nimbus.

            Great shoe thus far! I have been a fan of the Glycerin line for quite a while; however, the Glycerin 13 was not a good shoe in terms of durability/craftsmanship. I had to return two pair due to the sole coming detached from the shoe. So far the 14 has proven to be a winner!

            Comments about Mens Brooks Glycerin 14 Running Shoe:

            These shoes fit like a glove. They have plenty of room in the toe box and the tongue stays where it belongs without slipping to one side or another. The cushioning felt a little bit hard, during my first run, and has become more compliant since then. The rebound is just right and makes me feel as if I can run all day. The shoe just fades into the background and performs.

            I run a 5K 4-6X a week. I've been running in Glycerin's since Glycerin 10. Glycerin 14 toe box is a bit smaller than the Glycerin 13, but not to the point of being annoying. I've logged only about 30 miles in them but so far I am pleased with this version's support and cushioning.

            Comments about Mens Brooks Glycerin 14 Running Shoe:

            I'm heavy 210-215lb, so I need a shoe with good cushioning. I need a neutral shoe. A local running store steered me to Brooks Glycerin (11) and I've been buying them ever since. I always worry that the next new model will change something, but so far I've made it to 14 and they continue to feel good. I get about 300-350 miles on them before I change them. I've tried to stretch to 400 but I end up with hip and knee pain/injury. May be coincidental, but losing a month on a pair of shoes is a fair trade to being hurt and not running for a month.

              I have been running in New Balance shoes for the last ten years and I decided to try something new. After reading some of the reviews on the Brooks Glycerin 14, I decide to give them a try. They are the most comfortable running shoe I have ever worn. I would say it feels like a NB1080 but more comfortable and they seem to be more durable so far. If you are on the fence of trying the Glycerin 14, remember that if you buy them through Road Runners you have the opportunity of returning them if you are not happy. It is a great shoe and the return will not be necessary.

By far, the best result I have felt, is that my plantar fasciitis does act up after using this shoe. Usually, I am sore for at least two or three days. Not with this shoe. It is incredible. I am rarely enthused about any product, but this one has my attention and future loyalty.

                I am a long time Glycerin runner, the 14's are probably my eighth model. These still deliver the ultimate in cushioning, as evidenced by a comfortable 17 mile long run in them in the first week of ownership. I would point out what seem to be a few minor changes from previous models: this model is somewhat tighter across the top of the foot, and there is slightly less room in the toe box. Also, this model seems just slightly shorter. However, none of these are deal breakers, the Glycerin still delivers a luxury ride.
