The Brooks Glycerin 13 has been tailored to improve your comfort and offer cushioning beyond its already high standards. It has been designed to compliment a neutral running gait and provide a high level of cushioning with the use 3D Fit Print technology to provide a seamless, supportive upper. As you run the foot is secured by a dynamic saddle that holds the foot in place whilst the wrap around collar provides a soft and comfortable finish. The sole of the shoe provides an enhanced super DNA cushioned midsole providing a quarter more cushioning over regular DNA cushioning. The outsole is built to spread and optimise weight distribution throughout foot strike and the shape helps encourage natural alignment throughout the gait cycle.
- Super DNA midsole provides the ultimate adaptive cushioning
- Rounded heel offers better alignment, minimizing stress on joints
- Ideal Pressure Zones disperse impact for an effortless ride
- Conformable saddle construction gives your foot a snug fit
- 3-D Fit Print overlays on the upper add flexibility and structure
In a Neutral shoe the midsole is made up of a high cushioned material with no extra medial (arch) support to lessen the impact that legs have to endure when running.
Neutral running shoes are for those who have, what is regarded to be, the 'ideal' running motion. Initial impact will always be towards the outside of the foot, whether you heel strike or land towards the forefoot. For a Neutral gait the foot then rotates inwards to help absorb shock, but stops when the foot is positioned straight from the heel up through the achilles to the lower leg. This better alignment puts no, or very little, stress on the lower leg muscles and joints resulting in less joint related injuries.
Neutral Shoes are also recommended for Under Pronators. Underpronation occurs when the foot doesn't role inwards enough from the initial impact. Underpronators should look for higher cushioned neutral shoes to help with the lack of natural shock absorption.
