Brooks Glycerin 10, $140
Height: 37.7 mm (heel); 28.2 mm (forefoot)
Weight: 12.3 oz (M); 10.0 oz (W)
The Glycerin is the Cadillac of running shoes—its suspension ensures a bump-free ride mile after mile. The midsole and outsole have been heavily sculpted; columns of foam and rubber promote a fluid landing. Brooks extended the midsole to fill in a gap at the outer edge of the midfoot, where previously a plastic shank held guard, for a smoother heel-to-toe transition.
Bottom Line: Luxury cushioning for runners with normal and high arches.
