      Comments about Womens Brooks Glycerin 12 Running Shoe:

      I had a pair of Glycerin 10's and loved them! I was excited about the arrival of the new Glycerin's 12's. I am sad to report that they fitt very wide, much wider than the 10's, the length was the same as the 10's. They also didn't feel as cushioned as the 10's and after I wore them a couple of times I noticed that the bone on the outside of foot was sore. I had never had that before, it may have been caused by the need to lace them so tightly because of the width. I ordered a standard B width and confirmed it on both shoes and the box. I was disappointed with the wide fit, loved the colors of the cactus flower and sad that I had to return.

        I currently have the Glycerin 11 in the B width. My feet are wide, but in the 11 the toe box was plenty wide. I ordered the 12 in a B thinking they would fit the same way and I was wrong. If your foot is between standard and wide, order Wide. I will be exchanging mine for a wide.

        2 different colors fit differently

        By AH

        from Dallas TX

        Comments about Womens Brooks Glycerin 12 Running Shoe:

        I wear these for both distance walking and work. I have the blue/mint color variation and have no complaints, i.e. no hot spots, numb toes, blisters, etc etc. When I ordered the purple/capri pair, though, they seem to have the less cushion. Too bad, because I like the way they look better, but fit and comfort trumps appearance for me.

          I have been to running stores where they "diagnose" your foot to fit you into the "perfect" shoe. I was never happy with the results. the glycerin 12 is extremely comfortable and i don't experience knee problems as I always have in the past. in fact, I don't wear my knee brace anymore!

            Went to my running store for a fitting and found out my foot had gone down a size; tried several pairs of shoes, but when I put on the Glycerin it felt like going from a Ford Pinto to a Lexus--very nice feel, cushioned, comfortable. I run/walk about 20-25 miles per week and absolutely love these. Just bought another pair in the very cool purple. Super shoes!

              I run/walk about 25 miles per week - mostly road and treadmill. I need good cushioning for my knees. Shoes are comfortable first time on the road. These might be the best running shoes I have worn since I started running 30 years ago.

                Great shoe. Very stylish. I have loved the look of this shoe since I first set eyes on it. The shoe is very soft, almost like silk. It's the best I have experienced. I had hip problems but after switching to this shoe it wasn't even noticeable anymore. The cushion is great and there is no irritation with any stitching.

                  Due to changes in my feet, the podiatrist recommended I wear a wider and more cushioned shoe. A Roadrunner Sports Expert suggested I try the Glycerin. WOW, immediate comfort!! High instep is so supportive to my feet. I've been wearing them about a month now and my feet aren't hurting quite as bad.

                    I have neutral feet with high arches, wide toes and narrow heels and was searching for a comfortable shoe to replace my Nike Pegasus (Nike changed design and new Pegasus didn't fit my foot any more). I also need lots of cushioning and run between 30 to 40 miles in a week-mostly on the road, but sometimes trails. I tried many shoes including styles of Asics, Hoka One One, and New Balance, but always my pinky toe was squeezed or the fit was off or I felt pain during and after. I ordered the Brooks Glycerin 12 and from the very first time I tried them on, it was total relief and comfort. I am so impressed! Really a perfect balance between cushy and bounce and my feet feel great. I ran 6 miles straight out of the box and felt wonderful the whole time and after. I did have to order a 1/2 size up from what I usually order, but it wasn't crazy big like it sometimes is to order a 1/2 size up. The laces are really long so you can go loose or tight easily...very versatile design-thanks, Brooks! I really really love this shoe. It might be the perfect shoe for me.

                      I tried these on at the store compared to Asics Nimbus, and I preferred this shoe more. I ran a week with them before a 10k and I was very happy with them. Great support (not too much cushion and not too flat). I don't love how they look with the white sole, but function over fashion right?

                          The Glycerin 12 feels great on your foot, it hugs your foot but is not tight. Lots of room for toes to spread out. Great cushioning, I am an overweight walker that does not pronate, I slightly supinate and I am walking for 45-60 minutes a day, completely pain free. I love these shoes so much I bought 2 pairs. I also wear the Brooks Ghost. With all Brooks shoes I have to size up 1/2 size. I am also very pleased that the wide sizes are not neon blue this year. Thanks Brooks.

                            Using these to train for a marathon. I ran my half marathon in the ghosts so I thought I'd give the Glycerin a try. I didn't like the 11's but these are waaaay different! Very comfortable, cushioned ride for us slightly heavier gals!! Good space in the toe box and hugs in all the right places. Right now I'm out with an injury and can't wait to get back out there with these amazing shoes! The bottoms are much more durable than the Ghost. If you are training for a long distance race or just like to run 20+ miles a week, I recommend these!

                            I run about 25 miles a week with my long run on the weekend. These have great cushion, feel lighter and I like the rollover. I have very small ankles and the padding hugs my achilles well.

                              I purchased this shoe to run. I run 2-3 miles 3-4 times a week, so not a heavy user. So far, they are very comfortable, with plenty of room for expansion. My normal running shoe size is 7.5. I purchased this in a size 8, and feel comfortable with them.

                                I run 25-30 miles per week. I have been running in Saucony Triumphs forever. The last update Saucony made to its Triumph just did not work well for me so I decided to give these Brooks a try. I will never go back. These shoes are perfect! Great cushioning, shoe hugs the foot, tongue stays in place, lightweight and so comfortable to run in. The cushioning in these shoes is amazing. Kudos to Brooks on designing what very well may be THE perfect running shoe!
