Make your run a little softer.

The luxury of the new women'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.

Excellent Cushion

The Glycerin 17’s are very cushioned and comfortable after you break them in. They are a bit narrower than the Glycerin 16’s that I had previously. If you’re looking for a shoe that feels like you’re walking on a cloud, you’ve found it!

Great service!

My feet feel so happy now that I went to Fleet Feet and got properly fitted! Ordered another pair online. Couldn’t apply my rewards and customer service fixed it for me.

Great people, Great product

When it comes to buying running shoes, this is the place to go! The shoe fitting experience is extremely helpful and the associate that helped me was knowledgeable and insightful. I ended up buying a different shoe than what I planned on buying and it has been the best running shoe I’ve ever had. I’m definitely a fan of Fleet Feet in Winston-Salem!!
