Rated 5 out of 5 by RunningJohn Super Comfortable Shoe
I have large feet; men?s 14, and I prefer a wide when available. I tried on seven or eight pair of shoes from different brands, in the store, before deciding on the Brooks Glycerin 11. This shoe is a perfect fit for my foot and the cushioning it provides has so far saved me from aching feet after my runs. I absolutely recommend this shoe to everyone. At least, try it on and see how it fits your foot.
I had gift cards that had to be used online or I would have purchased from the store. The salesmen were terriffic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Guy from Los Angeles Excellent Neutral Running Shoe from Brooks!
This is for neutral runners, or runners who wear orthotics (as I do, because I'm an overpronator). It's simply a wonderful traditional running shoe with a ton of cushioning and an excellent upper. I recently wore this shoe for a two-week trip to Europe where I walked about 100 miles. I had absolutely no foot pain at any point in the trip, and the shoes still look brand-new. My only complaint is that the toe box could be a bit wider. (I do an alternative lacing style that lets my toes splay out a bit more)
All in all, it's basically a great neutral running shoe, and the blue/grey color (only available at Dick's) looks fantastic. I'm not a huge fan of fluorescent colors or a ton of white, so this colorway was perfect.
They fit true to size, and Brooks quality is second to none. I alternate running in these with my trusty Adrenalines and Trances from Brooks due to my overpronation, but I will definitely work this new pair of Glycerins into the rotation more often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frank 36 Excellent fitting shoe that is worth its price!
I tried the shoe in the store to get a personal feel for the shoe. I was hesitate about buying the shoe at that moment due to its high price and never owning a Brooks shoe. But I thought about great the feel and comfort of this shoe and decided it was well worth the high price. I purchased a pair on line the next day and am very happy I did. I use it primary for walking and shopping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WOW Best shoe I have owned
I have worn Saucony, Asics, Nike, K-Swiss, Puma, and more. This has been the best shoe running shoe I have owned by far. I only have 25 miles on them, but it has been the best 25 miles and I am already considering picking up another pair. Worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hooier Bob Exceptional, comfortale shoe
I purchased the Glycerin 11 recently and have been able to maintain and increase my running distances, in spite of our typically blazing Austin summer. I have been using Brooks shoes for 15 years with great results, compared with Nike previously. I never liked the Glycerin before, the G 10 seemed to be uncomfortable in the midsole area. I tried the G11 on and it felt great in the store. Of course, that can mean little. Later that day and for the last week they have been great, allowing me to push further on my 61 year old legs.
I do better at 61 with Brooks than I did at 41 with Nike. I believe in paying more for a better, longer lasting shoe, so the Glycerin 11 is well worth it IMHO. Love the limited edition midnight color too. Peace.

This shoe is the most comfortable shoe i have ever worn. I love to run and even though i dont usually wear true running shoes this is the first pair that i bought. They are comfortable and very durable. This has to be one of the best pair of shoes i have bought in a long time.
