Brooks Glycerin 17 Fit
The Brooks Glycerin 17 is designed to be plush, both inside and out, and our testers found that the fit is just like the ride: comfy.
Plus, the engineered mesh upper provides just the right amount of stretch to make sure the shoe fits comfortably for a range of foot widths. She also praised the fabric sewn around the heel collar.
“I love the plush heel collar,” she says. “The material has a very smooth feel, which is great for anyone who struggles with rubbing around their ankles.”
Another tester loved how the shoe’s internal bootie hugged his midfoot without feeling too constricting. He says the bootie was noticeably snug when he first put the shoe on, but it easily blended into the background when he started running.
The heel provided excellent structure to the shoe, and it fit securely without slipping or rubbing. A Fleet Feet tester who has average-width feet but a wide heel, says the shoe was comfortable during long runs on pavement.
