The Details

With its neutral midsole design, premium-cushioning materials, combined with full surface area contact from the midsole, the Glycerin 14 sits atop of the neutral tree. The full surface area contact helps dissipate the impact of foot strike over a larger surface area, meaning more cushioning and greater durability. The distinctively soft, yet responsive full length Super-DNA midsole from Brooks leads to a high volume life span on the Glycerin (expect a firmer and more consistent feel relative to ASICS Gel or Saucony Everun and a softer feel relative to the Mizuno Wave Plate).

The Glycerin will act as a great complement to a lightweight trainer for runners looking to have specific differentiation in their training runs (Volume Trainers for high mileage runs and Lightweight Trainers for pace specific work). This will maximise performance, reduce injury risk via loading variability and extend the lifespan of both shoes. When coupled with complementary foot function, the durability of the Glycerin is second to none and will have you enjoying a new shoe feel for a lot longer than you would have previously experienced.

Remember that the individual nature of how your foot and lower limb functions to absorb ground impact at foot strike will determine your specific needs regarding guidance shoes, so as always ensure you have your running stride assessed each time you wish to update your running shoes.

The Final Word

We would recommend the Brooks Glycerin 14 for those seeking a high mileage, durable and highly cushioned volume trainer.
