Customer Reviews

Comments: I want to like these shoes, but after running in them for 300+ miles I've "finally" realized it's not a "breaking them in" issue. My the bottoms of my feet ache and beg for me to take these off after 6-8 miles. I somehow did 14 miles in them today, but now that I took the shoes off I realize that was a giant mistake. The balls of my feet are so tender that I can hardly stand for a few minutes. The shoes fit great, toe box is wide enough for my fairly narrow feet, and I like how feel for short runs. I dislike their long run performance. Going back to Saucony, I guess.

Comments: I want the Glycerin 10 back. The Glycerin 11 is awful. My feet ache everytime I run 5+ miles. This never happened with the Glycerin 10. My advice to Brooks: Don't change something if it ain't broken.

Comments: I love these so much I want to give them a bad review so the rest of you won't buy them. The color is vibrant. No rough seams inside to irritate on long runs. Ran 13.1 in them the first time out.
