The Brooks Glycerin series continues with its 9th version, the Glycerin 9. Brooks raises the bar in comfort for its high-mileage, plush neutral trainer by incorporating full-length DNA in the midsole for an adaptable ride. The Glycerin 9 also incorporates Omega grooves, which enhances flexibility and efficiency through the gait cycle. The upper material construction flows with the movement of the foot, while simultaneously keeping the midfoot secure.  The Glycerin 9 is quite possibly the best version to date.

  • Full-Length DNA cushioning gel is a highly viscous liquid that changes to become more or less firm in response to each individual's weight, pace, biomechanics, and running environment.
MIDSOLE
  • BioMoGo full-length midsole offers resilient cushioning and is made of environment-friendly, biodegradable materials.
  • DRB Accel is a thermoplastic polyurethane unit located in the midfoot for balanced support and torsional rigidity.

UPPER
  • Element Mesh is a moisture-managing, breathable mesh upper.
  • Synthetic Overlays are strategically located to provide a snug, secure fit.

  • Midfoot Wrap is an asymmetrical overlay that wraps the foot for a more supportive fit.
