[Looking for the latest version? Check out the women's Brooks Glycerin 19 and women's Brooks Glycerin 19 GTS.]

The women's Brooks Glycerin 18 is back and softer than ever.

Brooks updated its classic Glycerin line by adding more foam than ever before. Designers reconfigured the midsole to allow more DNA Loft foam—the softest foam Brooks makes—to fit between you and the pavement.

A full-length rubber outsole increases the Glycerin 18’s softness and improves its durability, while added stretch in the upper creates a snug, comfortable fit.

In the Brooks Glycerin 18 review, Fleet Feet testers said the plush step-in feel creates a great first impression, and it rides smoothly and evenly for many miles.

Runners who crave a soft ride and easy fit will find both in the women's Brooks Glycerin 18.

Glycerins are my go to shoe

I love the Brooks Glycerins and Fleet Feet shipped mine to me super fast. The shoes have the perfect amount of cushioning for me and there is never a need to break them in.

I love Brooks Glycerin's shoe. They're by far the most comfortable running shoe I've owned. Hardly any breaking in to do with these they're that comfy!

Women's Brooks Glycerin 18

The Glycerin 18 is perfect for my foot shape and my needs for a cushy shoe. I have a narrow foot overall, but also need a little wider toe box. Due to some foot issues, I also need a softer feel underfoot. This shoe does the trick. The Glycerin is my Go-To shoe and has been since model 15.

Glycerin 18's Still Great

Had to return the Glycerin 19's (and so did my daughter). The new design was a problem in different ways for each of us and enough that we just could not wear them. Went back and ordered 18's while I still could as they have been perfect!

Not sure yet

These are working out just okay. Last year I bought the Ghost 12 and felt bouncy and amazing at the beginning. I've walked a lot already in the Glycerin, but haven't felt that same feeling. I may return at the end of the review period for the newest Ghost shoes instead; or try Hoka.
