So these shoes look a little clunky in the photo, but they are super light and extremely comfortable. These are my first pair of Brooks, and after running in Asics for the past year, I can't believe what I've been missing out on. The quality of the shoe is impressive, and the mesh is surprisingly breatheable - you can feel the "wind on your feet" if you're going fast enough. I've yet to take these out on anything longer than an hour or so, but I'm sure the comfort and cushion will still be there when I do.

Highly cushioned shoe which is great for larger runners. I'm a 6'2 / 190 normal pronator that runs 10-25 miles a week. This neutral + shoe is great for me since it has lots of cushioning. I use custom orthotics for a footbed, so I can't comment on the stock liner. This said, I've not had a single single bit of knee pain since going with the Glycerin, despite increasing my mileage. Fitting is essential with every running shoe. I recommend going +1 sizes to get a proper fit, but you should try one on if possible.

Brands I'd also recommend: Adidas, Asics, Saucony

I started with Brooks in 1980 with the Brooks Vantage and have been with Brooks ever since. This has meant a lot of shoe changes. But I have never been disappointed. The Glycerin 10 continues the excellence. I don't know what's coming next to replace the Glycerin 10 but I will be buying it when my current shoes wear out. I am happy Brooks has been here all these years. They have been a tremendous help toward maintaining my long term running program.

Perfect fit. The shoe is deep enough for my orthotics. My feet have never been happier.

I cannot believe how fast I got my shoes. I ordered on Monday morning about 10:00 AM and they were on my porch on Tuesday about noon. You will be getting all my shoe business from now on. Thanks, Zappos Crew, for the excellent service!

Very comfortable. I think they're a bit wider than normal, but this is fine for me as I have slightly wider feet. They seem well made, and are holding up very well.

I got me a pair of Brooks Glycerin 10 for work and now I am a believer. I work 10 hour shifts and am constantly walking for most of the shift. These shoes have amazing cushioning and comfort. Usually by mid shift, I would have terrible foot pain but with these I can go the whole day pain free. If your feet swell up when walking for extended periods of time then go for the wide with they make all the difference in the world. I got the red pair and must say that they look as good as they feel.

I loved the Glycerin 9 and the 10 is just as good. Bottom line is this is a very comfortable shoe right out of the box. This new design looks better too. I have tried a lot of running shoes in the past couple years and the Brooks Glycerin 10 is by far the best.

These are absolutely amazing shoes! They have the best fit and cushioning that I have ever experienced in walking/running shoes! My only mistake? I ordered from another company because they appeared less expensive. But by the time you add shipping and tax, the price was really no better. And I waited nine days for delivery. Never again. I am a Zapp-A-Holic with their lightening fast delivery and awesome customer service. But back to the shoes. Buy them; you will not be sorry! They provide total relief from heel pain, great arch support, deep cushioned heel and the diva pink with anthracite is really sharp!

My favorite purchase from Zappos thus far! I am a supinator and require shoes to have minimal "push" from the arch area. These shoes seem to follow my natural stride and keep me from "falling over" the outer edge with the flared design (where the word Glycerin is, there is a slightly wider pad). The weight of these shoes is pretty standard; the construction is true to the Brooks brand and is amazingly sturdy. Roomy toe box is great for meaty feet like my own, overall a great fitting shoe.

I love Brooks! It's is the third pair of Brooks Glycerin that I have bought. I've put a combined almost 3k miles on a sidewalk on the first two pairs, and expect to do the same with this pair. I highly recommend this shoe/company.

Bought these for my husband to replace his old pair from the same series. He loves them and runs in nothing else. Excellent support and stability for working out (he's a runner) with the needed arch support. While far from overweight, he's not a petite man so this shoe works very well for his frame and the pounding his body takes when he runs/works out. I doubt he will ever buy another brand of running shoe and know he'd recommend them to anyone looking for a quality, well made, and comfortable sneaker.

The shoe is true to size. The wide width that I buy is true to width as well. The wide EE shoe is very roomy up front. This is a very comfortable general cushioning shoe with the running feel of a lot of heel cushioning and moderate forefoot cushioning. The shoe does not roll on my neutral foot. The cushioned heel has a slightly high feel so the foot is not completely parallel to the ground when flat which some runners may object to.

I cannot say enough about this shoe! I log over 50 miles a week, and needed good neutral shoes for long miles. I tried them out with a short 6 miler today and they felt fantastic! They are a step up from the Ghost 5 comfort wise because the upper seems to be made of a more high quality material. Not only that, but the DRB Accel provides the perfect amount of support on the medial side without compromising the midsole. Although a little heavier than the Ghost, it more than makes up for it with a smoother ride. Do not get me wrong. The Ghosts are still awesome shoes, but the Glycerin 10s have just the right amount of cushioning and not squishy like the Ravenna 4s (which I recently returned). I plan on running 14 miles with the Glycerin 10s this weekend. Meanwhile, I will continue run my shorter runs with the Ghost 5s. Oh what happy feet I have!

After seven seasons wearing the Asics Gel Kayano shoes, the Brooks Glycerin won this round! Cushier, comfier and although I'm not a huge fan of the fluorescent green stripe, overall it's still a good looking shoe, and my orthotics fit well inside.

I used the Glycerin 9's all throughout 2012 and never felt any pain or pressure after my runs. They are also the most comfortable running shoe....er shoe...that I've ever worn. The 10's follow a similar style and are just as comfortable. The toe box is definitely a bit smaller, but doesn't bother me at all when running. Love these running shoes!

Bought a pair Brooks Glycerin 10's three weeks ago from Zappos. I'm 60, male, heavyset but athletic with supination. Last two pairs of running shoes were Asics Gel-Nimbus that felt either tight or loose but never spot on. These Glycerin 10's fit like a glove - very supportive yet not tight. Time will tell but after just a few days I could feel my feet rolling some with my Asics -not yet with my Brooks - still feel no roll at all - very supportive.

Was a Nike fan for 20 years. Always bought their top of the line but my last pair fell apart in the first month. Bought these shoes in reaction to poor customer service at Nike. I've had them for two months now. Similar in price...unbelievable comfort and support. I am super happy with my choice. So long Nike, hello Brooks Glycerin!

Brands I'd also recommend: Asics as a possible cost reduction. But the Brooks are worth the extra $

Getting back into running after spending a couple years away (shin splints have a way of taking the fun out of running.) These shoes are absolutely amazing. Comfortable fit and good cushioning through the entire stride. I definitely plan on buying another pair once I run down these.

If you need a Neutral + shoe, this is the best. Tons of cushioning in the heel & forefoot. I don't pronate, but supinate a little. I've got bunions on both feet and weigh 180. I run low mileage on asphalt but even the low mileage made my feet hurt with other shoes...like the Nike Vomero (no cushion in the forefoot). Comfortable from beginning to end of my runs. Highly recommended.

Just purchased a pair of these shoes and I absolutely love them. I have been wearing Nike Vomero's for years, but got frustrated with how quickly they wear down. These seem much more durable and although slightly stiffer provide a similar level of cushioning.
