First of all, you have to understand I hate tennis shoes! I have not worn them for 3-4 years. My heels started getting dry and cracking, and I had a blood blister on one. I reluctantly went to a running store in my blingy Justin sandals, which I had worn all through the winter. The guy in the running section had me walk this way and that way, brought out these bright shoes...I wanted white. I have worn these for a couple of weeks, but not every day, only when I go out. I have determined my feet really like the shoes, and I do as well...even if they are purple!

After wearing the Glycerine 10 and 11 over the last 2 years, I was very excited about this highly anticipated new version from Brooks. After waiting for a week or more following release, I bought directly from Brooks as Zappos did not have it. At this writing, Zappos still only has one color option. I got the shoe yesterday and tried it on with great excitement only to be quickly disappointed. I have always loved the neutral styling of the Glycerine as I am a mild supinator. I was so shocked to find that this new version pushed me to the inside of my foot almost forcing pronation. I actually found it very uncomfortable as the repositioning of my foot was dramatic. I even had a friend who wears the same size try them on and she felt the same thing. I also no longer felt like I had the nice wide solid rubber sole extending all around my toe. This shoe used to have such a nice "platform" feel in the toe. So sad that I have to go find another "go-to."

I have had my Glycerin 12s for 2 months now. I jog 4 times a week, and am probably heavier than the average female jogger, but not overweight. I supinate and every time I shop for new running shoes I face the chore of finding a "good neutral shoe" because it's hard to find a shoe targeted to supinators, in my opinion. After doing some research and reading reviews I ordered several different running shoes from Zappos. So started the usual routine of elimination, consideration, and finally making a choice. All my running shoes have always been 1/2 size larger than my usual size. A few could be repacked immediately. I don't know what Mizuno is thinking, but their Wave Rider is not the shoe it used to be. The Brooks PureConnect was just odd. I really like the Brooks Ghost, but it was not as supportive as I prefer. The choice came down to the Glycerins or the Asics Gel Nimbus. This was difficult. The Asics were so cushiony it was like walking on clouds, and they are a really attractive shoe. I love the way they looked. Unfortunately, it seemed as though they were made for someone with short toes. Everything else about them was perfect, but after wearing them around the house and using the treadmill for a few minutes my toes felt smashed and sore. This left me with the Glycerins. They were very comfortable. The forcing your foot to turn inward was a good thing in my case. I felt like it was holding my foot where it was supposed to be. I liked the support and the way it hugs my foot without feeling tight or rubbing anywhere. The only thing that gave me pause was this: I had Glycerin 11s which I also loved, but the tread wore out SO quickly (like after a month) I was tempted to return them and probably should have. I wore them as long as possible because they are not cheap shoes, but there was virtually no tread left on the outer edges of the soles. Actually, they were worn down almost to the insole after 6 months. I decided to try these anyway, saving the box, and so far they appear to be holding up a lot better. Fingers crossed. For this price, you'd think crossing my fingers wouldn't be necessary, though. That's the only reason I didn't give these shoes 5 stars.

I have been buying Glycerine for years, always happy as heck with them. However, these were unwearable for me. In fact my foot/ankle turned outward 3 times; I have to have that support under my outer foot to keep that from happening. I hate it when they ruin a great product under the guise of 'improvement'.

I have worn the Glycerins since the 9 came out, I was in love with them, the tens also. Bought the 11 and could tell they weren't as cushioned. Waited till the 12 came out and bought them, it is a different shoe, the toe box is more narrow and nowhere near the cushion the 9 and 10 had. I am very sad that I will have to find a different shoe. I hope they go back to the old model construction. I returned the 12.
