Top Reasons to Buy the Men's Brooks Glycerin 17

As they say, “You are either in your bed or your shoes, so it pays to invest in both.” The Brooks DNA Loft foam makes Glycerin 17 a Level 5 on our cushioning scale and is perfect for runners who prioritize comfort above all else.

We've said it once and we'll probably say it a thousand times more: this shoe screams comfort. On top of the DNA Loft foam, the Glycerin 17 is wrapped in a plush bootie interior that delivers a sock-like fit. Coupled with a mesh upper, this shoe will make you feel like you're running on clouds.

Ready to brave the storm and go for a run? Slipping should be the last of your worries, and the men's Glycerin 17 is here to save the day. The rubber outsole has a grid-like pattern that grips the ground with all-season traction. As the powerhouse in Brooks lineup of shoes, the Glycerin is here to keep you grounded and secure.

What People Are Saying About the Men's Brooks Glycerin 17

Brooks got it right with the Glycerin 16, which left many nervous about whether the successor would live up to the hype. We're happy to report customers are satisfied with Brooks for keeping the same level of cushion and comfort, while tweaking some features such as the OrthoLite sockliner and the mesh upper to make it that much better.

Brooks fans are ecstatic about the DNA Loft midsole. One tester went on to say that although he experiences some knee pain with other shoes, his Glycerin 17's are so cushioned that he wonders if he even ran at all!

If you're looking for a shoe to get you through even your longest runs, we're told this shoe can help you push the distance. With the cushioning technology, breathable upper, and plush interior, the Glycerin 17 is a must-have addition to any runner's closet.

Men's Brooks Glycerin 17 Updates

Brooks nailed it with the Glycerin 16, so they listened to feedback and reviews and kept what everyone loved: the adaptive DNA Loft technology. What's new? An engineered double jacquard mesh upper along with an OrthoLite sockliner meant for extra comfort to make the overall feel even softer than before.

Size and Fit of the Men's Brooks Glycerin 17

General Size and Fit

Brooks understands no two feet are the same, that's why they made sure to create the men's Glycerin 17 in two width sizes for male athletes with both medium and wide foot shapes. The flexibility of the mesh upper will let you wiggle your toes right in!


Bye-bye, hot and sweaty feet! The breathable double jacquard mesh upper directs air all throughout the chamber of the Glycerin 17 to keep your feet nice and cool, while the OrthoLite sockliner works double time to wick away any moisture. Brooks took it a step further (pun intended) with an updated internal bootie-like construction. What does this do? The bootie wraps all the contours of your feet in a plush lining to match your shape and natural movement. Hooray for comfort!


The midsole of the men's Glycerin 17 is where the party starts. Forming the bulk of the midsole is Brooks DNA Loft foam. This high-tech foam actually adapts to the amount of force you put into it. So, the harder you run, the more energy you get back, and the faster you go!


To maintain the cushioned properties of the DNA Loft midsole, Brooks created a rubberized outsole that shields the rest of the shoe. With added traction and flex grooves, the outsole of the men's Brooks Glycerin 17 can join you on your toughest runs.
