What Run Oregon is Wearing: Brooks Glycerin 14

Run Oregon sometimes receives products to review. In this post, Geli Heidelberger provides some initial impressions of the Brooks Glycerin 14 women's running shoe.

Company: Brooks Product: Glycerin 14 ($150) Specifications (from the company website): The women's Glycerin 14 neutral running shoe is the ultimate in super-soft cushioning, and comes equipped with everything you could ever want to glide through your run in supreme comfort Impressions: Switching to an entirely new shoe always makes me a little bit nervous, but when I took my first pair of Brooks Glycerin out of the box, I was in love. 

I slipped them on my feet, and they fit immediately, balancing a highly cushioned sole and heel with a snug fit around the mid-foot and an adequately wide toe box. For their first day, I wore the shoes around the house, followed by a few days of wearing them to work, where I spend a lot of time on my feet. Needless to say, the shoes passed this first week with flying colors, and I started to wear them in my running shoe rotation. Soon they had a few training runs and a 10k race under their proverbial belts, and I continue to be impressed.

For the past six years, I have had on and off problems with heel pain, and the high cushioning of the Glycerin 14 keeps my heels happy. A snug fit around the middle keeps the shoes tight on my foot without moving or rubbing. The toe box isn’t extra wide, but it made from stretch material that conforms to your foot without binding. As I continue to put miles on them, I anticipate my feet keep staying happy and healthy.
