Brooks Glycerin 10 --- do you like them?

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

New running shoes!

I tried on several. My feet were videotaped in action on a treadmill. The Brooks Glycerin 10 fit better than the others.

These shoes are replacing two pairs of Brooks Ravenna 3. I was happy in these shoes until they suddenly gave up the ghost. My legs felt heavy, my feet slapped the ground. The one week older pair have 275 miles. I know the experts say to expect them to die and need replacement at 300 - 500 miles.

I'm nervous about purchasing another pair of (expensive!!!!) Brooks. Anybody been wearing Brooks Glycerin 10 --- and are they holding up for you?

    I dunno! Are they working for you? I run in a pair of Merrill barefoot or New Balance Zeros and before that I was wearing the Asics Cumulus. I don't know that I've ever worn a pair of Brooks? Hope they work out.

    Ohhhh... very curious, since I tend to turn my feet. Now I'll have to go looking for these. (Not that we have any fancy shoe stores out this way... but next time I travel north.)

    I have the really popular Brooks that over-pronators are supposed to use... I love my Brooks. But I don't know about the Glycerins specifically. So ... yea, not helpful. Nevermind, and good luck!
