Top Reasons to Buy the Men’s Brooks Glycerin 16

Give your feet a hug and slide them into the ultra-adaptive internal stretch bootie found in the men’s Brooks Glycerin 16. The sock-like bootie construction works together with the innovative 3D Fit Print mesh in order to expand and contract with your foot’s natural movements.

The Brooks Glycerin 16 for men is a workhorse that can log tons of miles. The DNA LOFT technology will provide long-lasting comfort and durability that you can count on, so you can push your Brooks as far as your own limits take you.

Brooks redesigned the attractive new upper on the men’s Glycerin 16, which is not only stylish, but also stretchy and breathable.

What People Are Saying about the Men’s Brooks Glycerin 16

Runners who struggle with stress impact and shock absorption say they really appreciate the Brooks Glycerin 16 for men. The IDEAL Pressure Zones evenly disperse the impact away from your body with each step you take, resulting in a ride that’s much more effortless-and much less stress-inducing.

Like an upper built for Goldilocks, the engineered mesh in the men’s Brooks Glycerin 16 is neither too hot nor too cold. Runner’s won’t hesitate to wear them in the winter months, nor do they experience heat woes in the dead of summer.

Some people reported being bummed in the lack of color options available in the 15, and Brooks listened. The men’s Glycerin 16 comes in many different colorways for you to choose from so you can select your favorite flair.

Men’s Brooks Glycerin 16 Updates

The Brooks Glycerin 16 for men introduces an all-new bootie construction for a firm-yet-flexible feel. Also make sure to note the DNA LOFT that’s been added to the full-length midsole that adapts to the shape of your foot for a super plush riding experience.

Size and Fit of the Men’s Brooks Glycerin 16

General Size and Fit

There’s two different width sizes available in the Brooks Glycerin 16 for men, but when selecting from the available shoe sizes, remember to go up one half size from what you normally wear.


The new, Double Jacquard mesh is leaving fans in awe. Engineered with extreme precision, the upper in the men’s Brooks Glycerin 16 gives you a more breathable and flexible structure than ever before.


The midsole in the Glycerin 16 is integrated with DNA Loft cushioning, a technology that melds DNA foam, rubber, and air for a bouncy ride, customly contoured to the shape of your foot.


You can see the exposed cushioning in the lateral midfoot of the Glycerin 16 outsole, which is surrounded by tons of soft rubber stretched across the bottom surface for ample traction. Slick surfaces are no match for this monster-strong grip.
