Rated 5 out of 5 by TonySis Most comfortable running shoes
These running shoes are not only the most comfortable running shoes I have but are also the most good looking shoes I have in my closet. I have received more compliments on these shoes then any other shoe I have ever owned.If you want a great pair of comfortable,stable and good looking shoes <you have too look no further.

Glad I decided to give these shoes a try. I was never a big runner, but now it's becoming a hobby because my feet and legs are pain free.

I have only worn these once but absolutely love them. They are super light and very comfortable. This is the 2nd pair of Brooks I have bought and will not be the last. Lots of support and really got the 12's at a great price. I currently run in the Brooks 11.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UNDEADLY Smooth and Bouncy Long Distance Shoe (Full Review)
First I need to say that the Glycerin 12 has an outer foot support that at first can turn you off. It seems like flaw in design at worst or a slight discomfort at best. I **HIGHLY** recommend wearing these for at least several days while you go shopping or on walks so you can get used to it and it can form to your foot type. I almost resold these because of it and that would have been a HUGE mistake. Colors are not great (why white outsoles) and a little flashy for my taste.
Comfort-After break in period (see above), absolutely the smoothest ride I have experienced. Also the bounce back you get from the Super DNA pods are unmatched. Makes a 10K feel like a 5K. Not a ton of arch support so high arch people may need some. Outer foot support is adaptive after break in period and the outsole is a softer material than something like the Adrenaline.
Quality-It's Brooks so the quality is there. I have about 50-60 miles on mine and tread still shows textures. No signs of anything breaking down yet.
Value-Here's the biggest (and really only) flaw. Anywhere from $120-$150 at most stores. OUCH! Luckily found mine on ebay for $75. WIN!
Performance-Lacing system is standard so nothing crazy here. I always skip the eyelets at the top of my foot for comfort due to higher than normal arches. The laces themselves seem to stretch way too much. So if you like a tight feel, replace them. Heel has good cushioning and lock down if fit is correct.
Fit/sizing-Seems to fit as expected. Toe box is roomier than Adrenaline so your toes can move a bit, but not too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by edieee2002 Absolutely awesome shoes
I've never been picky in my whole entire life, and for the first time in last 10 years i've decided to buy these without waiting to see them on sale.
They are the most comfortable shoes i've ever had , period. I am 6'00 230lb, kinda heavy guy, but to run 6k in these shoes is piece of cake, swear to God.
I've tried sooo many shoes in last 6 months, Asics, Nike, Adidas, you name it, but these, these are the best. Are they pricey? Yes, yes they are, but if i wait till next year to get them when they go on sale(before they release glycerin 13), probably i'll reach my weight goal.
proper diet, good shoes and some time in your life can change everything.
My hats off to you Brooks people, you made something amazing this time.
