Make your run a little softer.
The luxury of the new men's Brooks Glycerin 17 comes from its full-length DNA Loft midsole. The generous helping of super-soft foam runs from the heel to toe, making sure that every part of your foot is cradled in cushion.
Brooks sewed an internal stretch bootie into the shoe to hug your foot and then wrapped it up in an engineered mesh upper that moves and expands with each step. Together, the bootie and upper give the Glycerin a plush feeling for as many miles as you can run.
Engineers didn’t change much from the previous version, the Brooks Glycerin 16. This year’s shoe now includes an OrthoLite sockliner for increased comfort, but the midsole, upper and outsole all remained the same.
Overall, testers in our review of the Brooks Glycerin 17 loved how soft it felt inside and out.
Brooks designed the Glycerin 17 for those long days when you was to rack up the miles without pummeling your body.
