That’s right, just in time to amp your run for the summer, Brooks has taken their famed neutral ride and fine-tuned it with a few updates while keeping its favorite features, making it a force to be reckoned with!
My husband and I got the amazing opportunity to test out Brooks Glycerin 15, and our running reviews are in!
Here’s a breakdown on why we LOVED the new Glycerin 15’s and why you will too:
At first fit, the Glycerin 15’s may feel a bit snug but as your wear them more often you’ll begin to notice how these sweet rides seem to magically mold to the contours of your foot, offering a personalized and comfortable fit that holds your feet perfectly in.
The Glycerin 15’s feature Brooks “Super DNA” midsole which offers premium cushioning that’s flexible and incredibly-comfortable, all while staying enjoyably lightweight. And, the Glycerin 15’s have been enhanced with added cushioning thanks to an extra underfoot layer that helps soften the ride for the ultimate plush feel.
The Glycerin 15’s feature a redesigned outsole with an improved full-length segmented crash pad along with plush transition zones for a smooth and more efficient heel to toe transition that lets you glide over the ground seamlessly. The Glycerin 15’s also have “Ideal Pressure Zones” on the outsole which are evenly dispersed throughout to absorb shock and reduce stress on your body, so you enjoy a smooth and springy running experience.
The Glycerin 15’s still stay true to last year’s model with an AH-MAZING 3D Fit Print technology featuring a sleek and seamless upper that feels oh-so-good on your feet—and best of all, is luxuriously adaptive and molds to the contours of your foot. This airy, mesh overlay offers a custom-feel fit that’s smooth and supportive, all while boosting breathability so your feet stay comfy and cool.
The Glycerin 15’s have all the favorite features you’ve come to love which offer continuous comfort including, a plush interior that feels like you’re walking on clouds, an extra-padded tongue that rests snugly against the foot, easy-tying laces that stay securely in place, and plush padding around the ankle-area that offers a premium and pain-free feel.
The rundown: our individual reviews
Stats: 6’2”, 205 lbs., muscular build, a Marine Corps veteran, avid athlete, marathon runner, and running addict, shoe size: Men’s 12 Medium
As an active and tall guy who enjoys hitting the ground running, I really felt that these shoes fit perfectly right out of the box. The Glycerin 15’s are plush, comfortable yet responsive, and satisfyingly supportive— even for those of us that are tall and over 200 pounds. Best of all, they deliver the supreme cushioning, smooth support, and all-day comfort I crave mile after mile. I usually only use my running shoes specifically for running but these rides felt incredibly comfortable that I decided to wear them while out-and-about and these shoes did not disappoint- they were crazy comfortable and gave me a bouncy feel that felt like I was walking on air.
Stats: 5’2”, 128 lbs., petite, workout warrior, outdoor and treadmill runner, running aficionada, shoe size: Women’s 7 Wide
Being petite and with a wider-sized foot, I really appreciate the fact that Brooks recognizes that not all feet are created equal—and offers the Glycerin 15’s in Normal, Narrow, and Wide widths. I slipped my feet into a Women’s size 7 Wide and my feet literally fell in LOVE with this shoe, a big high-five to Brooks for making this shoe in a Wide size for all of us that need an extended width! The Glycerin 15’s hugged my feet with a tailored-made feel as if they were made just for me! The toe box is roomy to my feet splay comfortably while securely holding them in all the right places. And the 3D print upper is breathable and free from seams, so my feet feel cozy and airy without feeling restricted. This past weekend, I wore my Glycerin 15’s for a 5 mile run then decided to keep them on all-day while running errands—and they felt perfectly plush and sweetly smooth, staying comfortable from start to finish! All around, the Glycerin 15’s are highly cushioned, smooth, and supportive providing all-day luxury mile after mile
The Gylcerin 15 retails for $150 and is available for both women and men in a variety of colorways in Normal, Wide and Narrow widths.
So stride strong this summer and get your hands on Brooks Glycerin 15, the super-performing sneak that’s packed with plush comfort, a custom-feel fit, and smooth support!
