Brooks Glycerin 14
A superb shoe that was unlucky not to pick up an award. It’s a luxurious, soft, bouncy ride that was among the most cushioned shoes tested in the lab. The weight was such that lighter runners did not find it too heavy, while even very large runners were able to pound away on the roads while still reporting that the shoe felt firm, supportive and sturdy – though it was a lightweight compared with chunkier shoes they’d previously worn. Bottom line Brilliant shock attenuation and a smooth ride; will suit a variety of runners.
