      This is a solid offering from Brooks. I run about 50 miles a week and I haven't noticed a discernible difference, good or bad, with this version compared to the 10's or 11's.

      If you're new to the shoe, make sure it fits properly. I don't have a really wide foot but prefer the 2E over standard width.

        Comments about Mens Brooks Glycerin 12 Running Shoe:

        Very disappointed with Brooks these past few years. Although their shoes are starting to become more visually appealing, there performance and comfort have been sacrificed. I love Brooks,I love Brooks, I love Brooks (Just want that engrained into you) always have loved Brooks, but for whatever reason they are no longer the shoe I've been accustomed to using in years past. These were hard, like running with cowboy boots, I'm from Texas, I've done it before. Stiff, not as flexible, not cushioned, nor durable like the others, plus $140 for kicks that feel as hard as mesquite, come on man! It took me just one day to send these back (Thank you Road Runner Sports for your continued Awesomeness!). I don't ever comment on products, but if you are a big boy and like cushion, durability, and comfort, you might want to skip these and try something else. Bring back the 10's

          Brooks Glycerin my go-to shoe! (35+ mi/wk; 185 lbs) BUT I'm bummed that i had to give up on the Glycerin 12. My left interior forefoot comes to rest on the stabilizer edge, annoying about mile 7-8 and unbearable at 15. Im sure its just that one foot wider than the other, but i never had this issue with Glycerin 9-11's so regret i have to give up on the Glycerin 12's - especially because color is kick $#% ! Just pay attention to the interior forefoot edge when fitting!

          Comments about Mens Brooks Glycerin 12 Running Shoe:

          I am a long-time runner who as been a Glycerin wearer for several years. My closet is full of old Glycerins. The 11 was the best of the line so far.
          The 12 was a total miss. I do not understand why Brooks decided to make such drastic changes to the shoe. The fit is completely different (I wear a 2E). The really show-stopper is a narrowing of the sole. This has resulted in making the shoe way less stable then the 11. In fact, my first long-run in the shoe resulted in sore knees - a first for me and my Glycerins. Very disappointing.

            PR in first race I wore these in, very fast despite being a bit bulkier than other shoes, do not feel bulky or heavy in use. Reg fit well on wide feet. Best Brooks yet imo.

                I use these for half marathon training. They fit perfectly and the width is true to form. Great cushion. I'm 185 lbs and they are so comfortable and have a lot cushion. I've always been a Nike fan, but these shoes just fit the best when I tried them. I supinate (land on the outside of my feet) and these neutral shoes have helped a lot. The shoes and the even the shoelaces are high quality. Great shoes! Highly recommend.

                        Comments about Mens Brooks Glycerin 12 Running Shoe:

                        I run in two different shoes depending on what I'm doing. The Glycerin is a great cushioned (but not too heavy) shoe. Plush and comfortable when I'm running on hard surfaces and/or longer runs. Very breathable and offers great grip on the pavement. After a month, I really don't have any complaints.

                          I've used these shoes for jogging and walking on pavement and grass. I've had them for about a month, (9-12 miles a week). I'm also a beginner runner, and I have wide feet. They breathe really nicely, they're comfortable, and are nice in terms of aesthetics.

                          Overall nice shoe. Light, comfortable. Only complaint is that it does slip a bit on push off if the ground is wet. I live in the Northwest so damp/mildewy pavement is common.

                            The Glycerin 12 is a great update to its predecessor. The 12 is light weight, comfortable, more durable, and run ready right out oft the he box. I ran 3 marathons in the Glycerin 10's. They were a great shoe, although a little bulky and heavy. The 11's were comfy and lighter but wore out quickly and I didn't feel they offered as much support. The 12's are a great blend of comfort, support, and durability. I just completed the Portland Marathon in 12's. They performed extremely well. This is a shoe I will purchase again.

                              Every couple of years I see something new and get sucked in to trying it. This year's experiement was with the Hoka Bondi, which just didn't work. Called in the Road Runner fit guarantee, returned them for the Glycerin 12, and remembered why I should never stray. Did 8 miles the first day on them with nary a problem, now rotate them with my Pure Flows and Cascadias. Brooks for life.

                                    Very nice feel to these shoes. Comfortable on pavement and they fit very well. I also run in the Brooks Pure Flow.

                                    I ran in the 11s and found they wore more quickly than I thought they should. Not yet sure about these.

                                    Overall, I'm very satisfied.

                                      I have couple pairs of the Glycerin 10s (skipped the 11s since the 10s were still holding up), which was a great shoe for my foot type. The 12s are even better. These shoes are so well-cushioned and comfortable right out of the box. They really didn't require a break-in period. Ran a 5k race in them a week after receiving the order and couldn't be happier.
