For running the 6th segment of the MS Run the US Relay, a total of 165 to 170 miles all in 7 days, I have chosen Brooks Running Glycerin 10 as the shoes to carry me along.
For most of this year I have been wearing Brook’s Pure Flow 2, which I have really enjoyed. I have found that my feet would feel tender and sore after a 10 plus mile run. With my segment daily average to be around marathon distance I needed a shoe that could provide my feet protection and cushioning from the pavement. The Glycerin have proven to me to be that shoe.
Here are some things I really like:
1. Fit. The 10s are built true to size and they come in 2E, which is really nice. I tend to like a wider shoe and toe box. The shoe is very flexible in the forefoot.
2. Feel. The overall feel of these shoes is plush. Very cushioned, but not soft. The uppers hug the foot, but in a gentle way. Very comfortable shoe in all regards.
3. Cushioning. These shoes protect me from the hard pavement. I wore them in a 50 mile race on crushed gravel and the 10s did a great job. My feet didn’t hurt when I was finished. Which was nice. I feel like they do a good job in cushioning and they don’t feel soft or squishy.
4. Quality. Like all Brooks products that I have owned and wore, the quality of this shoe is excellent. A very good product for the price.
While I am running my 170 mile running segment, I am taking two pairs of the 10s, planning on alternating them from day to day. What is nice for me is knowing that my feet are going to be protected and that the Brooks Glycerin 10s have my back.
