Brooks Glycerin 10

12.5 oz.; 10.5 oz.

Fit: The plush interior foam and wrap-like upper helps create a super-snug fit in the heel and mid-foot, while the toe box offers just enough wiggle room as your toes splay out from impact to toe-off. One experienced wear tester called it “the most comfortable shoe right out of the box that I’ve ever had.”

Feel: The sole is more cushy and comfy than a pair of fuzzy bedroom slippers, but not to the point of interfering with performance. It doesn’t allow much of a proprioceptive connection with the ground and tips the scales on the heavier side, but our testers said it runs considerably lighter than it weighs.

Ride: It feels buttery smooth no matter where or how hard your foot strikes the ground. Our testers found these shoes best for long runs at slow to moderate paces, and especially beneficial to high-impact runners.
