The premium Brooks Glycerin 14 matches expectations with soft comfort based on plush cushioning and top materials. Removable insole can be replaced with custom orthotics but default one fits great for medium/high arc users who enjoy long runs. Following successful trend of limited editions, the american brand has released "Victory Collection" based on american flag's symbols and colors to celebrate the "Spirit of Competition".
There is no revolution compared to its predecessor Glycerin 13 but "3D Fit Print" technology has been modified to improve breathability and durability. Plastic piece embracing midfoot (similar to ISOFIT™ system featured in Saucony Triumph ISO 2) provides secure fit while wraparound collar features plush comfort around the ankle.
Impressive Super DNA midsole stands out of the rest of Glycerin 14 promising around 20% more cushioning than regular BioMoGo DNA (used in smaller sibling Ghost 9). Outsole keeps "Ideal Pressure Zones" technology for smooth ride with harder rubber in more exposed areas for longer durability.
