Brooks-Glycerin-17

Step into a world of softness thanks to the super plush Ortholite® sockliner featured in the Brooks Glycerin 17. Haven’t yet heard of this magical OrthoLite? Just imagine fully breathable, open-cell foam technology designed to compress a total of less than 5% over its lifetime and you’ve got yourself your new favorite sockliner. In addition to piling on the cushioning, Brooks also managed to tweak the upper for a more dialed in fit, while a somewhat narrower footprint will have you feeling nimbler than in earlier editions. Fans of that responsive outsole will be happy to learn they didn’t mess with a winner. You’ll enjoy all the traction of its predecessors with a stable feel that’s unstoppable in nearly every type of running condition.

WHAT YOU’LL LOVE:

You’re going to love how silky smooth the Brooks Glycerin 17 feels from the moment you slip them on. They deliver a ridiculously soft, velvety ride that pushes you through your toughest training just as easily as your slower-paced recovery days. Offered in four accommodating color choices for men and women, they have a sleek, streamlined style that makes them a perfect choice for everything from 24/7 wear to leisurely runs to training runs.

WHO THEY’RE FOR:

Designed for neutral runners who are big, big, BIG fans of comfort, the full-length DNA LOFT cushioning in these shoes makes every step feel pillow soft. Truth be told, I find  myself choosing these when I’m itching for an easy, relaxing run, a long day of urban sightseeing or unintentionally long walks as my toddler naps in her stroller. They don’t mind how slow I go. And I certainly don’t mind how comfortable they continue to feel, mile after mile. For those who want to up the pace, the Glycerin 17 is more than ready and willing. It’s surprisingly light for the cushion it’s packing.

WHY YOU WANT ‘EM:

Obviously, you’re going to reach for the Glycerin 17 because they’re soft and super comfy. But you’ll likely also enjoy:

-A breathable engineered mesh upper that’s the perfect combo of structure and flexibility

-A plush, stretchy, seamless bootie fit that surrounds your foot and expands with your stride

-A smartly designed DNA LOFT transition zone that creates ultra-smooth heel-to-toe transitions
