Men's Shoes Brooks

Brooks Glycerin 19


A classic gets even better with the men's Brooks Glycerin 19.

Brooks reconfigured the midsole in the Glycerin 19 to pack in even more DNA Loft foam. The DNA Loft is Brooks’ softest foam composition, so it gives you the plushest underfoot feeling every step of the way.

The foam maintains the shoe’s light weight to keep your muscles feeling fresh, and it boasts a peppy response for a lively ride.

An engineered mesh upper molds around your foot for a comfortable fit, and an internal heel counter locks you into place so you don’t slip inside the shoe. A durable blown rubber outsole adds traction on pavement and flexes easily for a natural toe off.

In the Brooks Glycerin 19 review, Fleet Feet runners praised the easy ride provided by the DNA Loft foam. The cushion, they said, feels luxurious for long runs and recovery days.

When you crave the softest cushioning around, the men's Brooks Glycerin 19 delivers that and then some.

Brooks Glycerin 19 Review:

The rubber outsole of the Brooks Glycerin 19 running shoes

Part of Brooks' Cushion collection, the Glycerin 19 uses DNA Loft foam to deliver a smooth ride with plenty of supportive cushioning to absorb shock with each step. The Glycerin 19 is great for medium to high arches that need more cushion and support at the midfoot.

Fleet Feet testers took the Glycerin 19 for a run. Here's what they thought.

Very comfortable

Overall I’ve been very happy with these shoes, very comfortable and great support. Only reason for a four rating is because they are very stretchy which results in a little too much give in the actual upper material itself

Great Shoes

These are great shoes. This is my 3rd pair of Brooks Glycerin shoes. I went to a Podiatrist and he recommended Brooks since I have wide feet. Very comfortable to wear.

Excellent shoes!

Best and most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned! Takes the shock off my knees when I’m running or bouncing.

Shoe review

I had the shoes a few days before the 2021 Extreme Ville to Ville run. I am in the Clydesdale division and need shoes with extra cushion and longevity. So far they have met the cushion requirement as I have reduced some of the aches I incur. Duration we will see in 4 months. After the first 100 miles of wear, they seem to be holding up. I run 100 miles a month and have been seeing shoes flatten out or just fall apart, at about the 200 mile mark. So far so good.

Not the sneaker for me

The toe bed is too narrow for me. My foot rides forward as I am walking & my toes are at the edge. I am getting a blister in the back of my right foot where the top edge of the sneaker rubs. Disappointed but it must just not be a good fit for me
