Faster than my Nike Pegasus running shoes - and the exact same size,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brooks Mens Glycerin 11 Running Shoes (Apparel)
I've been running in Nike Pegasus shoes for about 5 or 6 years, and they never cause me blisters or aches, but I was looking for a running shoe from a "real" running company like Brooks. These seemed to provide the features I was looking for (comfort mainly) - and boy do they deliver. Having read the other reviews I was expecting more cushioning, but honestly they give a responsive feel under-foot, not like that plush soft Pegasus heel. At first I wasn't sure I liked it, but then I noticed how much quicker I was running because the cushioning was just right.
Some good features about the shoe are its lovely tongue padding and the silky material used around the tongue and heel. The padding is good. I have no blisters whatsoever after running about 35 miles in these shoes in under a week. The Brooks DNA material really does seem to adjust to your feet - the shoes feel noticeably more comfortable after a couple of medium runs. That was a surprise.
The good news if you're moving from Nike is that Brooks shoe sizes are identical to Nike, so for example I bought a Brooks size 10 UK because that's the size of my Nike Pegasus shoes.
