Brooks Glycerin 12; M 10.9 oz, W 9.1 oz, $150*

Brooks Glycerin 10 Men's and Women's Running Shoes
And you thought the Glycerin 9 had some style… The new Glycerin 10 is a fresh design that bumps up the plush. This latest version is all about enhanced flexibility and cushioning. And if you ever forget the name of the shoe you’re running in, just look down at your pinkie toe and all will become clear.
What to Watch For
- More Cushion: Brooks added more cushioning on the lateral side of the shoe for a softer landing.
- Revised Arch Bridge: The midfoot arch bridge that extended all the way across the shoe in the Glycerin 9 now only extends about halfway across on the medial side. This helps the shoe hug your foot while creating a smoother transition.
