      Comments about Womens Brooks Glycerin 8 Running Shoe:

      I'm a heavy runner, getting back into jogging after a winter off. ~200 lbs., 5'10", size 10 foot. Neutral plus, slight underpronator when tired, ~10-15 miles per week. Previous brands that fit me have been Saucony (roomy toebox), Nike depending on the model (they tend to run too narrow on my rather wide forefoot). My last shoe was Nike's Vomero Zoom 4+ ... it wore out way too fast for my size body though quite cushiony, so I was looking for a more durable neutral cushioned shoe. The fit rep in the store was very knowledgeable about women's shoes, a runner herself, so she recommended the Brooks Glycerin, I've not tried this brand before. I tested it side-by-side in store with the Saucony, New Balance, Adidas for Neutral +, this one fit the best of all. I particularly like that it has cushion in both forefoot and heel, and forefoot has a curve up for better/faster pushoff, actually makes for a faster feeling shoe, lighter running feel. It also means that you should likely go up a half size, I needed to go up to a 10.5, first time I've had to do that in a shoe. Very lightweight, which I like, not clunky at all, quite comfortable. Tongue has a notch for the front of the shin, which many shoes don't, so I appreciate that and don't feel it pushing on my leg during the run. Am a bit concerned about the arch support, I have very high arches, and my left arch started feeling a bit achy, so I will need to watch that and see if it starts giving me problems... have been running on the shoe for 2 weeks now and there hasn't been any "breaking-in" necessary, good grip, not too tight or loose on the heel, roomy toebox. So far I am very pleased with the fit.

        Bought the Brooks Glycerin 8 after reading the description -adaptable cushioning for neutral runners. They were great for a 20 mile training run and now we'll see how they work for the marathon!

            I used to wear Asics until I went to a running store and they anaylyzed my stride. The Brooks Glycerin shoe is what they recommended. Love it! This is the 2nd pair. I would definitely buy this shoe over and over.

              Needed a less expensive alternative to the asics I wore for many years. Great cushioning for a heavier runner.

                      This is my second pair of Glycerin 8 running shoes and I love them. Love that there is a choice of colors, too. They wear and wear. I run about 10-20 miles per week on average both on the treadmill and out on the road. The shoes are very durable but extremely light weight and breathable. Love the support for my arches. Have absolutely no issues with the shoes or Roadrunner, [...] prices were excellent. Will continue to buy them for as long as possible w/Roadrunner.

                            I run 15-25 miles a week and only wear my shoes to run in. I wear orthodic inserts - have the forefoot width of a 10.5 but my foot actually measures a 10. I have always worn a 10.5 but the fit is not always great - this shoe is perfect. The toe box has no constricting stitching - so none of that annoying pinky toe pressure that can occur with my wide toes! This is my 4th or 5th pair of this same style. 2nd pair in this color - fun purple without being bright. I couldn't be happier!

                                I run about 4-6 miles regularly per day. I use this show to train in and to race in. It is very comfortable and light-weight.
