Our Take: The 11th version of the Brooks Glycerin has arrived and this shoe is better than ever! This has always been a wonderful shoe from Brooks, but they have yet again found a way to improve it from top to bottom. The new 3D Fit Print on the upper of the shoe does a great job of hugging your feet without feeling like “too much shoe”. But wait, there’s more! To compliment the ultra plush cushioning of the shoe, Brooks has also taken out the plastic shank of the midfoot to make the Glycerin’s stride smooth like butter!
From the Brooks website, “Think of the Glycerin 11 as your foot’s butler, catering to your every want and need with plush, conformable comfort in every step. The luxury begins with an ultra-comfortable upper that uses innovative 3D Fit Print overlays to create structure and reduce weight. We’ve also removed the midfoot shank to optimize ground contact for a transition that puts the “oo” in smooth. Finished with fresh colors and hot looks, Mr. Belvedere’s got nothing on this shoe.”
