Brooks Glycerin 17


Make your run a little softer.

The luxury of the new men's Brooks Glycerin 17 comes from its full-length DNA Loft midsole. The generous helping of super-soft foam runs from the heel to toe, making sure that every part of your foot is cradled in cushion.

Brooks sewed an internal stretch bootie into the shoe to hug your foot and then wrapped it up in an engineered mesh upper that moves and expands with each step. Together, the bootie and upper give the Glycerin a plush feeling for as many miles as you can run.

Engineers didn’t change much from the previous version, the Brooks Glycerin 16. This year’s shoe now includes an OrthoLite sockliner for increased comfort, but the midsole, upper and outsole all remained the same.

Overall, testers in our review of the Brooks Glycerin 17 loved how soft it felt inside and out.

Brooks designed the Glycerin 17 for those long days when you was to rack up the miles without pummeling your body.

Will miss the Brooks Glycerin 17!

Just ordered and received a pair of Glycerin 17. This will be my 4th pair of this shoe (recently also purchased the new 18). The Brooks Glycerin 17 I found comfortable from the first time I tried on a pair. Every time I lace them up my feet are happy. And I have hard to please feet when it comes to shoes. But my feet and Brooks Glycerin series are very compatible!

Men's | Brooks Glycerin 17.

This is my second pair of Glycerin's and love these a bit more. The first pair, model 16 I believe were a little snug but I usually like my shoes snug. The FF associate suggest I go up a 1/2 size and I did not listen. That pair seemed to shrink but I did get a lot of use before they were just two tight. This time I went up a 1/2 size but the toe box seems a bit more comfortable than the previous pair. I run 4-5 miles daily and 10 on Saturday's.

Ghost to Glycerin

My last four pair of runners were Brooks Ghosts. Decided to soften up the feel with Brooks Glycerins … so far so good. Bought them online from FF Carborro … priced right and free delivery.
