Women's Shoes Brooks

Brooks Glycerin 19


A classic gets even better with the women'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 women'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.

I have purchased many of Brooks glycerin shoes. The Glycerin 19 do not disappoint. They fit great and feel like you are walking on air. Keep up the good work Brooks!

Amazing Sneaker. Supportive and Great Cushioning

This is a great sneaker. It is very stable, very supportive, and has fantastic cushioning. I have problem feet and can highly recommend these sneakers.

Great Support!

I overpronate and was actually "sliding' to the right in my right shoe when gardening (uneven ground), and it was bothering me. When a Fleet Feet store clerk suggested the Glycerine because I already have supports from my doctor, and she thought the Glyserine wouldn't 'push' my foot to the right so much....as in too much support? Never thought of it, but gave it a try. I now have great balance. My ankles thank me every day. Thanks, Fleet Feet!!

Glycerin 19

I absolutely love my new glycerin 19 shoes! I am on my feet everyday all day as a nurse and have tried many different shoes to try and find a brand that doesn’t leave my feet tired and hurting— glycerin is that shoe!! Look forward to ordering several more pairs!

Glycerin 19

I was having so much pain in my feet it was hard to walk. I went to Fleet Feet in Greenville, SC and tried several different shoes. The Brooks Glycerine 19 was the one that stopped the pain in my feet. My husband and I walk for exercise and I can.now enjoy it without pain. I highly recommend this shoe.
