Behind the Laces: Brooks Glycerin 13

The Glycerin 13 is way, way up in the clouds. For lovers of high cushion in a neutral shoe, the Glycerin goes above and beyond to give runners the ultimate in plush comfort. But how? And what technologies did the Brooks team work hard on for this update of the Glycerin to take that feeling to the next level?

The Brooks design and development team worked incredibly hard on the shoe’s saddle. Creating the stretch windows that help the shoe adapt to your foot shape presented a challenge, but the team came through and found a solution that gives the runner a custom fit without adding bulk or unnecessary rigidity to the shoe.

In addition, we had a goal to take our 3D Fit Print technology to the next level in this update of the Glycerin. Our idea was to create a zonal theme that linked all of the overlays back to the lacing row. This seemingly small detail improves 3D Fit Print and means that every time you lace up, the whole upper adjusts to your foot shape and not just the area around the lacing row.

Other important technologies to check out when you slip the Glycerin 13 on include:

Segmented Crash Pad

Made up of fully-integrated shock absorbers, this feature of the shoe’s outsole provides cushion and smooth heel-to-toe transition, maximizing the efficiency of every stride.

Super DNA

This adaptable midsole material offers increased cushioning while providing peak energy return and support.
