Brooks Glycerin 18


[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.

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.

Good shoes, but they don't fit me anymore.

I've been wearing Brooks' glycerin and ghost shoes for years--I have a hard time finding shoes that fit so once I did I stuck with them. These were great for a week, but after that they started rubbing blisters into my heels. Super bummed since that's way too long to return them. :( But if they fit you they're great shoes!

Found a new she i love !

I went from loving Brooks Levitate, which I have been wearing every one of them since they came out. Levitate 4's didn't impress me so, I thought I would try the Glycerin 18. I have been reading reviews and comparing for awhile now. I am hooked, bought my first pair and ran a 1/2 marathon in them. The cushion in them is great!

Most comfortable running shoe I've ever owned

The cushion on your feet and the airy feel of the shoe makes running for me much more enjoyable. Trying to find a shoe that was comfortable and not clunky was a struggle until I found Fleet Feet. I recommend this pair to anyone who has issues with long runs or walks.
