I do not think there's a runner out there who does not like how the Brooks glycerin shoes feel when you put them on. The glycerin was designed for one main purpose – to be as comfortable as possible – and this is immediately visible when you step into the plush upholstered shoe.
When you start to run, there will of course be occasions when all of this upholstery plus the softness will occur. Ride is not suitable, but if comfort is your main concern, glycerin has long been the first choice and 17 sets this Tradition continues.
The midsole is made from the same DNA loft material as Glycerin 16 and provides a soft and supple ride that's perfect for light days. If you keep your body up to speed during some hard workouts or races, there is no better shoe for your recovery run.
Through this soft ride, the shoe is also great for serious runners and beginners who are worried about the effects of a new shoe making workout regimes on their bodies. If you have started a first marathon, the attenuation of glycerine in the coming long training months is very much appreciated.
The main difference between Glycerin 1
Of course, the plush and high weight (300.5 g men) of Glycerin 17 are not suitable for all runners, and you notice the weight as you increase your pace. Although the transition from heel to toe is gentle, the shoe does not react very well – the shoe definitely feels like it absorbs the shock of running and does not return the energy.
Because glycerin is engineered to put comfort first No problem, but there are many shoes that offer a better combination of cushioning and speed. The Saucony Triumph ISO 5 offers almost the comfort of glycerine and is better suited for fast running thanks to its resilient Everun foam midsole. The Hoka One One Clifton 6 is as soft, but much lighter than the Glycerin Tempo.
However, if you value comfort, Glycerin 17 is still the best option. And all you have to do to make sure you go to the next run and put on a pair.
