Brooks Glycerin 19
Best Running Shoes for Women of 2022 - GearLab
The Brooks Glycerin 19 - Women's is smooth, comfortable, and versatile enough and holds up well even when worn daily. Often, responsiveness and comfort are mutually exclusive, but that's not the case with the Glycerin 19. The DNA Loft midsole and the reconfigured outsole of this version deliver well...

Brooks Ghost 14 Review | 2021
It's just like the the more cushioned version of this shoe and that's great as well.

Brooks Glycerin 19
My Favorite Glycerin - Stock Up Item
This is by far my favorite glycerin from Brooks. My last favorite was the 17’s. Super cushion but a little wide in the toe box. The 18s were ok, less cushioning in my opinion and stiff. The 19s are perfect. Ample cushion from toes to heel and the toe box is perfect. What’s new is the outsole (I hope...

Brooks Ghost 14
Love the Ghost, but the 14 is NOT the same
I only discovered Brooks last year. By way of description, I am an active 49 y/o, I wear a 7.5, average width, medium arch, no foot issues at all but still want a comfortable shoe. I am not now nor will I ever be a runner, but just wanted a comfortable walking shoe for exercise, the gym, theme parks...

Duration

Brooks Glycerin 19
Also fit wise, this shoe is far too narrow and for me in the midfoot and is actually worse than many others here in normal width. The toe box is wide, sure, but the middle part is very narrow.
Brooks Ghost 14
But the high drop and bland midsole soon quenched my interest in these shoes. Since then I never bought another pair of Brooks' shoes again.

Brooks Glycerin 19
Used. Supposed to be new.
These were supposed to be brand new running shoes. For the price… they should have been, well, brand new. What I got had a sticky substance on the bottom. They were worn on the inside and were full of animal fur and a persons hair. Not new. I bud someone may have tried them in and returned them. The...

Brooks Ghost 14 Review | A Conventional Daily Shoe That Sticks To What It Does Best
I think that the ghost does now suffer for the fact that shoe exists and i'd be looking at seeing what brooks does with that phone rather than investing in another ghost yeah. Overall, this is a pretty solid shoe uh, it's a nice, robust kind of um, fairly comfortable, not entirely slow shoe that can do you know a decent job of a few different things, but there are certainly better options out there and i'd expect slightly more from the Ghost line in the future, hopefully with that new phone, so my verdict on the ghost 14 is that it's an old classic reliable shoe. I think if you've tried a ghost shoe before you're, not going to be particularly surprised by the shoe you're going to be happy that it's still got the same sort of feel and the same sort of benefits that you're probably used to getting from that shoe, which A reliability and a nice level of upper comfort, um and, to be honest, you won't be disappointed in it, but i think um there's a lot of good shoes out there at the moment

Brooks Glycerin 19 Review (2021): Should You Get It?
Yes, these shoes are a good fit, even if you’re a heavyweight runner. Indeed, The Brooks Glycerin 19 has a stack height of 31 mm under the heel, which is enough cushioning for most athletes, so it should be suitable even if you’re a heavyweight runner. Is this shoe adapted to run a marathon? Yes, there should be no problem

Brooks Ghost 14
Official Q&A for Tuesday, October 12, 2021
Ghost 14's do have some stability, but after a quick run in them I do notice some pain in the left side of my right ankle. Would this be because of using a shoe with less stability and my overpronation? I'm worried that if I do a normal run around 4-5km I'll get home really sore. Also is it safe to slowly transition from my Kayano 28s to the Ghost 14 assuming my feet get stronger from running in less stable shoes?

Injury Prevention

Brooks Glycerin 19
Caused an inflamed tendon
This is my third pair of Brooks, but my first Glycerins, as I previously wore the Ghost. I loved the Ghost 8 and wore them longer than I probably should have. I then wore the Ghost 12 and didn't like them as much. The fit just felt off. So after a year or so, I decided to try a different Brooks, the...
