BROOKS GLYC ERIN 16

Runner's World (UK) - - Tested Rw Shoe Lab -

shoe EV­ERY LONG- RUN­NING POP­U­LAR will go through a not-so-great ver­sion or two in its his­tory, and the Glyc­erin 16 will prob­a­bly be re­mem­bered as such. It’s not ter­ri­ble, more a vic­tim of the ex­tremely high stan­dards it has set in the past. It’s still the same premium-grade, neu­tral-cush­ioned shoe for high-mileage run­ners – and if you’re a diehard Glyc­erin fan there’s noth­ing ma­jor here to scare you away – but feed­back around fit (a tad wide in the toe­box), cush­ion­ing (too soft), flex­i­bil­ity (not enough) and breatha­bil­ity ( poor in the hot weather) sug­gests the shoe doesn’t quite live up to the premium price tag. A few tweaks are needed to get it back to its pre­vi­ously ex­alted lev­els.
