      I've used these shoes for jogging and walking on pavement and grass. I've had them for about a month, (9-12 miles a week). I'm also a beginner runner, and I have wide feet. They breathe really nicely, they're comfortable, and are nice in terms of aesthetics.

      Overall nice shoe. Light, comfortable. Only complaint is that it does slip a bit on push off if the ground is wet. I live in the Northwest so damp/mildewy pavement is common.

        The Glycerin 12 is a great update to its predecessor. The 12 is light weight, comfortable, more durable, and run ready right out oft the he box. I ran 3 marathons in the Glycerin 10's. They were a great shoe, although a little bulky and heavy. The 11's were comfy and lighter but wore out quickly and I didn't feel they offered as much support. The 12's are a great blend of comfort, support, and durability. I just completed the Portland Marathon in 12's. They performed extremely well. This is a shoe I will purchase again.

          Every couple of years I see something new and get sucked in to trying it. This year's experiement was with the Hoka Bondi, which just didn't work. Called in the Road Runner fit guarantee, returned them for the Glycerin 12, and remembered why I should never stray. Did 8 miles the first day on them with nary a problem, now rotate them with my Pure Flows and Cascadias. Brooks for life.

                I am 5'10" and 165 lbs. Run 10-15 miles/week and some 5K racing. I also do a good bit of walking each week.

                Very nice feel to these shoes. Comfortable on pavement and they fit very well. I also run in the Brooks Pure Flow.

                I ran in the 11s and found they wore more quickly than I thought they should. Not yet sure about these.

                Overall, I'm very satisfied.

                  I have couple pairs of the Glycerin 10s (skipped the 11s since the 10s were still holding up), which was a great shoe for my foot type. The 12s are even better. These shoes are so well-cushioned and comfortable right out of the box. They really didn't require a break-in period. Ran a 5k race in them a week after receiving the order and couldn't be happier.
