If you're looking for stability and cushioning, the Brooks Glycerin 19 GTS Men's Running Shoes are a great option.
I stopped running in Brooks when the Adrenalines changed to the guide rail system. My arch didn't get along with the inner rail and I developed severe large blisters. The Glycerines surprised me. No issues at all with the guide rails. This is an extremely comfortable shoe that fits true to size. It has soft supportive cushioning that is perfect for daily runs and long runs. It isn't mushy and despite the weight, I find it responsive and easy to pick up the pace. One of the best shoes I've run in all year.
I’ve just worn these shoes one day at the clinic and here at home. I believe they are the most comfortable I’ve ever worn and the reason for that is the choice of widths and the mesh construction material. I bought wides and they have helped already. I actually ended up with two pairs of the same, one for home and the clinic and one for workouts at WRS.
Great shoe that lives up to expectations. Moved to the Glycerin GTS 19 from the Transcend (multiple versions). I wore a 9.5 in the Transcend but have moved to a 10.0 in the Glycerin GTS 19 to get the same fit.
These shoes are amazing I am a cross country and track runner and run from 20-40 miles a week and these are great shoes to have in your rotation. They feel like clouds and they are great for longer runs.
One of my favorite daily runner/walking shoes. Loge the white on electric yellow color way. I’ve run using 12+ different types of shoes from Nikes, ASICS, Adidas, and Brooks. This is the best shoes I’ve ever run in. The right balance of cushion support and guardrails
I was having a difficult time finding a sneaker that felt good running on a curved treadmill. First one was very comfortable but the stack height was too high. Second one was lower and could run longer but wasn't too shock absorbing. This one felt very good, no problems running with a good stride. Tested them ran the longest on the first run. Thought the GuideRails® would help and definitely do when I get a little tired. Also the wide bottom surface helps with gripping the belt. Have a TrueForm Trainer and Definitely recommend this sneaker.
I average 15 miles a week alternating between road and treadmill. Bigger guy (6'4" 225) and also use this as a shoe for lifting and HIIT/HIRT workouts. This was my 3rd pair of Brooks and by far my least favorable experience. The toe began to fray 4-5 weeks in on usage and the support isn't near as good as my Ghost 13's. I'm still a Brooks fan, but would not recommend this show to runners who fit my profile.
I'll be honest I hate running and never like it. But I knew I need a good shoe because my Left knee was hurting due to other shoes I wore in past didn't have support. After purchasing this pair and trying them on for the first time it was very snug to fit (7.5) more then likely will make another purchase soon and order an (8) instead. Great shoes for running, walking or casual wear. Since first purchasing decided to give running a chance even though I hate it but with this support shoes and how comfortable it is while running I got to say running seem fun! Lol Great looking shoes as I had several compliments wherever I go.
I have been running in Brooks for over a decade and have loved every shoe but this one stands out. I started with the Launch back in the day and switched to the Glycerin 16 in 2018 in the middle of marathon training. I initially hated them compared to the Launch but gave them a chance and I'm glad I did. After a week, my stride settled in the Glycerin and the comfort was far better than the Launch. Fast forward to now and I just upgraded to the Glycerin 19 GTS. I immediately went out for a 7 mile run and dropped my time by over a minute and a half, increased my cadence, and felt so strong running. My knees, feet, and ankles felt great throughout the run. 10/10 would recommend. I've ran 2 full marathons and 6 half marathons (training for 7 right now) and I absolutely love these shoes.
Don’t Change Anything! Glycerin GTS 19 is a home run!
Brooks got exactly the right balance of support, cushion, and responsiveness with the Glycerin GTS 19! I am hard to please and I am extremely impressed with this shoe. I have serious plantar fasciitis issues and I’ve been able to wear these all day with the inserts that came in them! That is unheard of for me! Don’t change anything on this shoe, please. I’m a fan!
I am a "Transcend" fan and have them all the way from Transcend 3 to Transcend 7. I was looking for a Transcend 8, but was redirected to this shoe. I log about 25 miles a week and this shoe has been great. Love..love..love...
Upgraded within a few years from Ghost 10 to Ghost 12 to Glycerin 17 to these GTS 19 and it's just unbelievable each time... The run cushion and support of the GTS 19 feel amazing, most comfortable road shoes I ever had. Highly recommended!
It has taken me a long time to realize that a good pair of shoes goes a long way. I have spent years buying inexpensive shoes to save a buck and I thought I was doing myself a favor. In recent times I have come to the conclusion that a good pair of shoes are worth their weight in gold. It started with nice comfortable dress shoes at work and now I have recently purchased these Brooks shoes for my workouts and the difference is amazing. They have tons of cushion and can really absorb the impact of my larger frame when walking and running. They are light and even come pre-laced which I thought was a nice touch. After years of spending the bear minimum on a cheap pair of workout shoes I can now see the errors of my ways. If you are looking for a quality, comfortable pair of shoes that will improve your workout I would recommend these. Are they 3X better than a pair of $50 shoes? Yes.
These shoes are great. For me they run true to size and are a very good width. I often have problems with the toebox of a shoe because my big toe is slightly crooked from a prior break, and these are nice and roomy while still feeling secure. I really like the sole. I think it's slightly better than the previous Transcend. The Transcend felt a bit too spongy. The Glycerin feels cushioned while still feeling responsive enough so that you don't feel like you're running in sand. Finally, the blue and lime green colorway is also nice. It's bright enough to be well-visible and give you a bit of bounce in your step without looking totally crazy.
Felt like they had a longer break in time than any other Brooks I've had. The comfort in them didn't seem to last long. They are starting to wear faster than other Brooks I've had. I'm 80 miles into them and feel they'll only keep declining. I wouldn't buy again. My next purchase will be going back to Adrenalines.
After wearing the new Brooks Glycerin 19 I think they may be on to something with the guiderail technology vs medial posting to try and control motion and yes I know that these are not a motion control shoe so to speak. I have a solid background in biomechanics as a foot and ankle surgeon. I typically lean towards a more motion control shoe based on some pronation and weighing 220 lbs. Even though these shoes are categorized as a cushioning shoe for the neutral to higher arched foot they provided what I need albeit only for 3-4 weeks of testing. The ride is plush and feels good on the feet from heel strike to toe off. If you have a neutral to high arched foot the guiderails will not hinder your run/walk. After trying these shoes I think that this new model is a step up from previous Glycerin models. Give them a try! I think you will not be disappointed. I received these shoes free of charge in exchange for an honest opinion and with that said what I detailed above is honest.
I got the shoes. I've made them really better. I added a set of jel-fill inserts that I bought at the grocery store. They really give them the additional spring that they needed.
Next you still have way too many lace holes that makes the shoes impossible to get on. I relaced the shoes using only every other hole. Works great!!!!!
Next they really need the finger loop at the back to get the shoe on properly or strengthen the back so it doesn't collapse inside the shoe when you try to put them on.
So far they are with the above mods better than the last pair so evidently you did make some internal improvements. so that they "bounce" when you walk, which in my opinion is what they should do, when you walk on concrete.
I can actually jog some in these shoes, which at 72, with a bad back, is really something for me. Noel Mcgaughey
