OverviewA good cushioning shoe that will suit a lot of people because of it's competent and positive feel. The cushioning on offer feels good and the shoe also feels quite stable if you do have any mild over-pronation issues. The flexibility is good and while this is not a shoe you would pick out especially for fast running it is very capable if you do want to start upping the tempo. New colour for AW08.
Road Race Suitability
I've run two marathons in the Glycerin series (the 5 and 6) with good results. I have narrow feet with normal arches and weigh about 75 kg. I find the ride to be cushioned but not mushy. One downside, arch support seems to soften relatively quickly.
Quite simply the best trainers I've had in 30 years of running - and I've had at least 6 pairs.
I have tried Asics trainers now twice for training for a marathon and have found that the brooks are a much better shoe. I would highly recommend these trainers for comfort support and looks also.
