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.

Shoes are okay

I had Ghosts before I bought the adrenaline shoes, which are supposedly not as good of a shoe for running, walking, but the adrenalines caused me tremendous foot pain, so I had to switch back. They do not have nearly as much cushion as my previous Ghosts did, and this may seem petty, but the shoelaces on the Ghosts never came untied. The laces on the adrenalines I have to double knot.

These were comfortable from the moment I put them on. I need a high stability shoe. I also love this color - especially that the pink offsets the black nicely and is much less harsh than the more common bright white.

Great shoe

This is my second pair of glycerins and I really love the fit of this shoe. I didn’t buy my second pair till I reached 500 miles in them (great supportive shoe)After having kids my feet have changed (wider) and these shows fit great even with inserts I have plenty of room and support. Support is important to me as I tend to have hip and lower back pain. I’ve been very pleased with my Brooks! definitely will keep buying them

So Comfy!

These shoes are extremely comfy to wear! I have been using them for running a few miles a week. I love the colors as well, very close to the photo. I had originally ordered my usual size 10, but I found that it was a little too tight for the toes, so I went up half a size and they fit perfectly.

LOVED my Glycerin 18's but these are quite different. They are cushiony and supportive so I wanted them to work. The fit is very different and the toe area just wouldn't work. Sadly, I had to return.
