      Comments about Womens Brooks Glycerin 12 Running Shoe:

      I trained to walk the Detroit Free Press half marathon in the Brooks Glycerin 12 for 4 mons. A friend reminded me I probably needed a new pair prior to race day. My order was quickly filled by Road Runner Sports. The new pair fit perfectly and comfortably. I successfully walked and ran the half marathon. I felt great during the walk and after. This shoe was my secret weapon. I have a nerve condition in my left foot. The Glycerin 12 cushioned perfectly to ease any discomfort and reduce numbness in the foot. I love the navy blue as it looks good with jeans. I can't think of one thing I do not like about the shoe. Thanks to Brooks and to Road Runner for fitting me properly.

          I have a narrow foot but am totally comfortable in the 7.5M. Was using New Balance for years but because of a hip problem my chiropractor suggested a different shoe. The first pair I purchased from a local store that understood my problem. The second I ordered from you.

          I use them for working out and hill walking. Very happy! PS: I am a very senior citizen

              Running the streets I was avoiding streets due to feeling surface material through my shoes. The Glycerine 12 are so comfortable got them 1 day prior to 1/2 marathon went ahead and ran in them. I was extremely pleased with how comfortable they were without breaking them it. Road surfaces are no longer a issue, I highly recommend them to my friends that are neutral.

                          I had been wearing stability shoes for years. I wear orthotics and have been loyal to New Balance. I saw the Shoe Dog and it was determined that with my orthotics, I could wear a neutral shoe. I am also a heavier runner. The sales person brought out the Brooks Glycerin and I was skeptical. I tried them on and immediately felt the rocking motion and ran on the treadmill in the store. I loved them from the get go (Sorry New Balance). I have been wearing them for 3 months. I run 2-6 miles 3-4 times a week. I run on roads and dirt trails. I have had no pain from my neuromas since running in these shoes. They accommodate my orthotics, never feel like they are slipping or too wide. They hug my feet and I like the colors.

                            After running in pain for months, i switched to the Brooks Glycerine per my doctors recommendation. I am so happy I did. My Achilles pain is gone! My hip pain is gone! This shoe literally saved me. Runs a half size short from your true shoe size but I ordered a full size up.

                              Love these shoes! I'm a 11.5 wide (D) and these are awesome and look nice! I'm in a running club even though I'm a beginner runner I love these- my old running shoes had no comparison. These are incredible! I had a shin splint and I think my old shoes contributed to that these give so much good support and felt so much better after wearing these! they are lightweight and I love love love them- worth every penny!

                                I was so excited for the new Glycerin, however these did not live up to my expectations. I have been running in Glycerins for 2 years now, and thought I had found my 'sole'mate. Yet, these felt flat and hard compared with both the 10s (2 pair) and 11s (3 pair) that I totally adored. After 2 miles these were giving me problems, and I ended my run with burning soles and an aggravated right heel.

                                As usual, I ordered 1/2 size up to get the 8B. The length felt fine, but these felt much tighter around the foot. I even tried a different way of lacing them to no avail.

                                I returned them, luckily, and am now searching for a new favorite 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.

                                    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?

                                                    After having worn Asics for 25 years, this is my first pair of Brooks for running. They have been very comfortable during my first 2 weeks of running in them.

                                                      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.
