What’s New

Brooks did a major redesign of the Glycerin 20, while still maintaining its soft, luxurious feel. Designers reengineered the midsole by adding the nitrogen-infused DNA LOFT v3, which is softer and more responsive than ever. The updated midsole and wider platform deliver smoother and more stable transitions. Finally an all-new engineered mesh upper is lightweight and breathable for a more comfortable fit.

Who It’s Best For

The Glycerin 20 is for runners who want a supremely comfortable and cushioned shoe. They also work well for walkers or people who are standing on their feet all day.

Why You’ll Love It

You will love the plush cushion and responsive feel of the Brook Glycerin 20. The DNA LOFT v3 cushioning gets softer and more comfortable the more you wear the shoe.

Worth every penny

Lyk17 5 months ago Verified Purchase

Great purchase! It was awesome to get these shoes at a well discounted price. As usual the Glycerin 20 offers support and a soft heel. I have three pairs now and don’t think I’ll ever look back.

Brooks Glycerin 20

Barbara 5 months ago Verified Purchase

New Balance changed their design so I had to find a new sneaker for my two feet with two different sizes. I have Morton's Neuroma in both feet so I needed a wide and deep toe box with lots of cushioning. Brooks Glycerin 20 was perfect. I'm now on my second pair.

Did not compare to prior years

Jblack 5 months ago Verified Purchase

I've been a glycerin wearer for years. These missed the mark big time. They took out so much cushion. There is minimal support compared to prior versions. I was ready to buy new shoes Within 3 months

Sole on this colorway feels hard and stiff

IndyRunner 5 months ago Verified Purchase

I have several other pairs of the Glycerin 20 which is my basic daily trainer. I loved the drip colorway but the sole feels harder stiffer and less cushioned than on my other pairs. Now I only wear them for shorter runs on the track or unpaved trails.

Best Shoes I've own

SAL 5 months ago Verified Purchase

I purchased these Brooks last year after occasionally getting shin splints with my previous shoes. Someone who for the St Judes Marathon at the same time I was suggested i try Brooks. I am typically a daily jogger on both uneven terrain and treadmill and haven't had the issue since! Best shoes I've ever worn and now have multiple pair!

Use to love Brooks Glycerin 20 but…

Maxie2023 6 months ago Verified Purchase

Use to love the Brooks Glycerin 20 shoes but something has changed. During the past 2-3 years I have only worn Brooks Glycerin 20. Iam a daily walker and absolutely loved these shoes. Bought a new pair in July to replace a worn out pair. No issues. Then Glycerin 20 went on sale at Fleet Feet so bought an additional 3 pairs on line due to better color selection and a 4th pair at the store. NONE of them fit my right foot correctly. Now my right foot has not changed but something with these shoes has. The arch support in the right shoe partially hits my foot arch with the rest of it hits my heal. It is extremely uncomfortable as it feels like I have a large rock in my shoe. It causes my foot to throb and cramp. I kept returning these shoes to Fleet Feet and ordering another color thinking it might just be a fluke with that one pair…but alas it was not. The subsequent shoes that I purchased have had the same flaw and those have been returned. Iam now trying the Brooks Ghost Max but am not a fan. Shortly I will try the new Glycerin 21 model…perhaps the pattern for the right shoe has been corrected as I LOVE the Glycerin model but at this point unless something changes I will no longer be able to enjoy them.
