    Comments about Womens Brooks Glycerin 11 Running Shoe:

    Like the shoe. I avg about 15-20 mi and more during marathon training. I usually run in newtons and wanted to try something new. I liked it okay felt "hot" but then I live in Houston and it was 100 with 90% humidity. I will stick with newtons as my primary but sometimes I need a softer ride when I'm rehabbing after a long run and these will be perfect!!

        Comments about Womens Brooks Glycerin 11 Running Shoe:

        This is a reliable cushion shoe. I have very high arches and wear orthotics. The orthotics fit fine, which was a concern because my arches are so high. I am 5'10" 148 lb female and these last until 300 miles. I wear a 9 1/2 dress shoe, 11 in Asics and brooks. I will continue to stick with this brand because of durability. I even ran some trails in them without a problem.

        Not a good fit for me...

            Comments about Womens Brooks Glycerin 11 Running Shoe:

            I was looking for another shoe with extra cushion while training for Ragnar (I am a Saucony Ride 6 fan). At first I loved the Glycerin...but then I started feeling a weird forefoot pain in my right foot. It lingered despite taking 5 weeks off to heal. It was diagnosed as a stress fracture but the pain just didn't get better! I then realized it could be the shoes. I bought a fresh new pair of Sauconys and it is now almost completely gone! I use a metatarsal pad as I think my toes and forefoot "sunk" with use of this shoe. The Glycerin has an upward curved toe box and I think that may have caused my toes to angle up in a funky way. I now wear Nike Pegasus 30 and my tried and true Saucony Ride 6 and my feet are much happier.
            SO, if you have a high arch be careful because your foot might not like the upward curve on this shoe (and other Brooks shoes).

              The Glycerin 11 is comfortable and the sole wears as you'd expect. However, the top mesh has worn through on both the left and right shoe. On the left shoe the mesh near my left toe has seperated completely from the rubber running near it. On the right shoe it's worn through on the top not aginst the seam. I'm going to try one more pair but they're too expensive to have this problem.

              Comments about Womens Brooks Glycerin 11 Running Shoe:

              I run about 12 miles per week. What I like most about this pair is the wide toe box. What I don't like is that it has poor cushioning. The first thing the Fit Expert recommended when I purchased the pair on-line was to buy a RR cushion pad. You would think for a $134 pair of shoes, it better dang well come with good cushioning. Not the case at all !! The bottom of my heel hurts after 3 miles. I've had this pair for 2 months and the outside lining around the toe box is already ripping. Also, a few reviewers mentioned having pain on top of their feet. I experienced that too but I read an article that changing the way you lace your shoelaces helps to reduce this pain. I've changed to Straight Bar Lacing and this really helps.

                  I actually dont run, but am loving this shoe! I have a torn tendon in my foot, most likely from overuse and poor footwear. I have been wearing these shoes for about a month now and my pain is almost gone! I also have plantar fascitis and these shoes have great support. Very stylish and comfortable. I may be getting another pair in a different color!

                      Comments about Womens Brooks Glycerin 11 Running Shoe:

                      Purchased these for a Sept 2013 marathon, currently have 320 miles on them. They've held up very well and feel fine on the rocks when I run trails. Early on I did notice that they have a lot of fabric that hangs over the edge of the sole at the mid section. I decided to keep them anyway since I was happy with the comfort/cushioning they provided. Ironically, just 2-3 weeks ago I noticed that the box they came in shows they are WIDE! I never asked for a wide, and didn't check since I assumed the salesperson picked the average width. Most likely I would have been much happier with them if I had been given the correct width. They are a bit heavier than other Neutral+ shoes so I'm not sure I'll replace these with another pair of Glycerine. Also, these are probably the most expensive pair of trainers I've purchased; I think I can find another pair that I'll be happy with but a bit less expensive. I got these in bright blue, and I really feel conspicuous when I run in them. Glad to see they've added colors that are a bit more tame.

                        I can swear these to exercise in, then to shop in, then for casual get togethers; every time I've worn them, I get comments on what a great looking shoe they are, just an extra to the comfort and fit I'm enjoying! The price is up there but I have 90 days to try them out for 100% satisfaction, or send them back -- well worth the risk...and satisfaction of finding a great shoe to run, jump, walk, bike and feel good about myself in.

                          Let me start off these are the most comfortable pair of running shoes I've ever owned. I have a high arch and it's always so hard for me to find the perfect shoe but this definitely hits the mark. They are breathable and the cushion is wonderful. I'm a big heal striker and these shoes have definitely saved my feet. Plus I've had plantar faciatis and in these shoes I've never had a problem. I use an orthotic in them which fits great. I love these shoes so much that I've bought them in 3 different colors. Pink, white, and now the cool black and blue ones!

                              This was to replace Glycerin 10 but immediately thought it was stiffer and narrow in the mid foot. called it true to size, although, always have to order 1/2 size up, which I did. My shoe size is 8, these are 8 1/2. Ran on the treadmill and found the right foot in pain just in front of the heel. Feels narrow through arch and very stiff although only the right foot was so painful it sent pain up to top of foot. Put on my old ones and finished the run. Tried 2 more times to be sure and ultimately sent back for another pair to see if defective although I thought about just returning to look for a differnt shoe. Hate it when the version you love goes obsolete. Doesn't seem as cushiony as the older version which was a dream to run. More after the replacement.

                                    This shoes fits like the Brooks Glycerin 8 with a slightly less rounded toe box. I have wide feet with high arches and high insteps. I was able to fit my orthotic in it and as soon as I put them on they felt wonderful. Lots of cushioning. The only reason that I didn't give it a 5/5 is because the blue color is too bright for me. I was hoping Brooks would make a shoe similar to the Glycerin 8 and they did!

                                    I run about 25 miles a week and I alternate these shoes with a pair of Asics Gel Kayano 19's. These shoes fit well, but after about 2 miles into my runs, they make my outside toes go numb. Ordering the wide width does not solve this problem. Overall, the toe box feels cramped.

                                    My feet are very difficult to please. A shoe that is ok one day may not be ok the next day for that same shoe. The shoe has been consistent. Will buy this same shoe in another color soon. Bought the blue and nothing but compliments. If you are self conscious about color then the blue nor the pink should be your pick but the other color should do you just fine.

                                      I agree with SweatyJ...the 10s feel like they have more cushioning than this updated 11. I loved the 10s and recently ran a marathon in them without any issues. During training, I tried the 11s on some of my long runs and unfortunately my forefoot was very sore towards the end and I couldn't wait to get them off my feet.

                                        Had to switch from Asics Nimbus 15 to Brooks as the Nimbus were too cushy and Brooks were more supportive. I usually buy the Nimbus but the stiffer last on the brooks is better with my knees. I just ran a 10 mile race and beat my PR so Im very happy with my Brooks!!!

                                          I've been wearing the Women's Glycerin's for several years now. The 11's have MUCH less cushioning and after 2 months I'm experiencing shin pain and knee pain (which my old Glycerin's never did). The 11's were not as cushioned as previous models and they feel much "flimsier" right out of the box. The pink color is truly atrocious but I was too lazy to take them back so now I'm stuck..... I am bummed as it seems I may have to search out a new pair of running shoes, yet again.

                                              I am a big girl and I run 3 days a week training for a half marathon. I bought these as a replacement for my Glycerin 10's. The fit was very similar to the 10's with a wide toe box and more fitted in the mid foot and ankle. However, it is less cushioned than the previous model and it feels like it is correcting for over pronation which is not my issue. I have high arches and these shoes made them hurt terribly. I tried a few different inserts trying to correct the arch pain but nothing worked. I've had to give these shoes up (I waited too long to be able to return them, my fault) and try to find something new as the 10's are sold out in my size. I hope Brooks fixes this issue in the 12's.

                                                I loved these shoes and bought two pairs in July. I avg 30-40 miles a week and these shoes have already worn to the tread white part. They are much less comfortable now and I can "feel" the road. I run pavement and trails. For the first few months they were great but they wore out really fast. For the price, it is expensive to have to buy shoes (I buy two pairs at a time and switch them out)every 4 months. I'd love to stay in them because the first runs are amazing! But they wear out way too quickly. Good use would be for shorter runs.

                                                I really loved these shoes for 3 months, but now after wearing them for 5 months they have worn out and my feet are starting to hurt after six miles. These are good for low mileage runs.

                                                Comments about Womens Brooks Glycerin 11 Running Shoe:

                                                I love my Brooks Glycerine 9's but these did not work for me at all. I purchased them for an upcoming half-marathon since my Glycerine's 9's have about 350 miles on them. The 11's have a slightly different geometry which felt like it rolled my feet to the outside as if they were trying to correct knock-knees. I did three 6 mile runs in them and experienced knee pain on the inside of both knees which I have NEVER had before. After the third run the four outside toes of metatarsal bones on my left foot felt as if they were broken. It was very acute pain which began after my run and was excruciating when I put weight on my foot. It only lasted for a few minutes, but needless to say the shoes will not be going back on my feet.

                                                The 11's are supposed to be a neutral shoe, but they are trying to correct an outward pronation which I do not have - they are either not made correctly or are miscategorized. I am sure they would work great for some folks, but not for a person with a neutral stance.

                                                I would also add that unfortunately I feel Brooks run too wide for me. I was measured and assessed by Road Runner and they said I was a medium width. I have always been a medium in street shoes. Recently I have experienced burning on the bottoms of my feet after a run, especially runs in excess of 5 miles. I feel this is because most shoes are too wide. As most runners, I like some side-to-side room in the toe box, but fitted through the arch area of your foot. Most shoes seem to be made on a unisex last (wider) which is really starting to cause me problems. Unfortunately I am going to have to switch to another brand.

                                                I have been a loyal Asics Nimbus wearer and have had major hip and foot problems after wearing the last 2 releases of that shoe. The Nimbus 15's are just way too cushioned. I had to make a switch and the Glycerin 11 was one of the shoe options given to me by the fantastic salesperson at our local RRS store. It's got a lot of cushioning but not so much that I can't feel the road, and it's actually forced me to change my gait, which is a good thing. Bye bye hip and foot pain! I gave this shoe 4 stars because I haven't had them long enough to completely rave about them yet.
