    I run 20-30miles a week and I love how comfortable they are!! GREAT support!! I had glycerins two years ago and loved them. I switched to another company this spring and had shin splints along with a pulled calf muscle!! I switched back to the glycerins and WON'T run in anything but brooks again!! No injuries... Complete comfort and satisfaction!! Highly recommended!!

      Comments about Womens Brooks Glycerin 11 Running Shoe:

      I used to wear Mizuno's for running until I discovered this sneaker. I run about 30ish miles each week on the road and these do a great job of cushioning the impact without being heavy. I was obsessed with the pink ones and they started getting worn out so I just recently bought the yellow ones. For some reason the yellow dye stains all my socks. The dye doesn't wash out of the socks either so I have a handful of expensive running socks that have a yellow rim around them that I'm going to have to try to bleach out. I never had this problem with the pink ones so I might just return them for a different color. Other than that one negative these sneakers are amazing in my eyes.

      Luv Luv Luv this shoe! SUPER comfortable, no break-in period. Ready to run right out of the box. This shoe was recommended to me by a shoe store. I'm currently training for my first half-marathon and over 50 - so there's the knee issues, orthotics issues, etc. etc. This shoe works great with orthotics and is very kind to my old knees. I bought this second pair before they were all gone and the new line comes out. My only complaint would be the lack of color choices for wide widths.

      I walk or run three to four miles, six days a week on the street. These shoes have a lot of cushion when pounding the pavement daily. The only negative is that they don't last any longer than any other running shoe so if you're looking for long term wear, it ain't happening. But...if you're looking for a neutral running shoe that will save your knees, this is it.

        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!!

            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.

                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.

                  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!

                        I wore them to work--I work in an ER-my feet felt great at the end of the shift and I didn't feel like my leg were tired. I love the shoes and will be buying more, as these are my second pair of Brooks.

                          I wanted to try something new. I had always worn Asics Kayano. These worked out great and out does the Kayano. Love the toe box, laces and of course the color (gray). I would definitely recommend.

                          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.

                                      I love these shoes. This is my second pair. I run on the road 4-5 days a week. They are comfortable. They have enough room in the toe box for my foot. I love the colors.

                                        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.

                                                  Comments about Womens Brooks Glycerin 11 Running Shoe:

                                                  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.
