Verified Buyer Reviewed by Laura from Washington on Friday, February 6, 2015These shoes are like walking on clouds! They fit perfectly and are one of the top running shoes i have ever worn. I hope they keep producing the same exact shoe year after year.
Reviewed by Okgirl from OK on Monday, October 7, 2013This is the 2nd pair I've had in this style. Love the feel and fit. No rubs or blisters first time out running a 5k. Used to wear exclusively asics, but these feel better on my foot.
Reviewed by B Roo from Maryland on Tuesday, August 13, 2013This was my first pair of Brooks shoes - women's Glycerin 9, which I purchased on clearance from a local outfitters store. Before this pair, I mostly wore Asics and Saucony both for running and walking, and I never had a problem with them falling apart. But only four months into this Brooks pair, the treads began to pull off the bottom of the right shoe. I did not run in them and only wore them casually a few hours a day a few days a week to run errands. They still looked brand new, including the treads with minimal treadwear, when the first tread began to tear off.
I contacted Brooks, and first they said these shoes are for running and not walking. What a joke! Like running over rocks and different terrain wouldn't tear them up faster than wearing them on a carpet or other flat surface. I understand how your feet hit the surface differently when running and how that would affect treadwear, but should anything really cause the treads to rip away from the shoe when they're basically new? Maybe working in a junkyard with sharp objects everywhere? Then Brooks told me the shoes are only meant to last 4 - 6 months. I went ahead and filed a claim for a defective item on the Brooks site (along with the photo of my new shoe with torn tread), and they replied: "When used for its intended purpose, Brooks footwear has an expected life of 300-500 miles or 4-6 months. By this measure and your described pattern of use, it's about time to update your shoes." Then they offered me a 25% discount on another pair. NO THANKS. I'm guessing my shoes got about 100 miles before the tread tore.
I have worn Asics, Saucony, Nike, Adidas, New Balance, and other brands, and none of them have ever fallen apart like these Brooks. My Asics and Saucony shoes I wore for over a year with custom orthotics, and I only replaced them when the treads were slightly worn down as expected--even before I could feel they had worn. Based on the poor quality of Brooks and their poor customer service, I will never buy another pair. After searching the reviews, I noticed others had similar complaints about them falling apart easily. These Glycerin 9's weren't even worth the clearance price for four months of gentle casual wear.
Reviewed by IthinkI'llgohomenow from ILLINOIS on Thursday, May 23, 2013I should have looked on STP for Brooks earlier. I've tried Brooks ravenna, ghost, radius...trying to avoid the heavier, clunkier shoe...but with my high arches and slight runners knee I need the extra cushioning. And this shoe is not clunky at all. I have a slim foot but I have never purchased a "narrow" and I was concerned I would have to return it, but I've had no issues with the comfort in the least bit. I used to wear the Ghost but now find the Glycerin is THE shoe for me. After 30 miles I recommend changing out the insoles with SuperFeet as you get more out of your shoe.
Reviewed by Julie from Washington on Monday, May 20, 2013This is my favorite running shoe. I run a few 10Ks a year and about 20 miles a week, and these shoes last me about a year. They are very comfortable and have good support. I highly recommend them.
Question & Answer

The sizes shown are US women's shoe sizes.
“My wife wears a size 8 B (medium)in street shoes. Would there be an issue ordering a size 8 or 9 in 2A in the Brook Glycerin 9? I would normally order a 1/2 size up but it looks like you are sold out of 8.5.”
The shoe would likely be too long and too narrow.
“what is 2a in the width as i am a normal wideth. also what year is this shoe--2011 or 2012. is this a neutral shoe of stablity”
A 2A width shoe is a women's narrow. The shoe is built for the neutral to under-pronator requiring enhanced cushioning.
