  • The Glycerin GTS harbours revolutionary nitrogen-infused DNA LOFT v3 technology within its midsole. This makes it the softest, and simultaneously most breathable version.
  • The mesh upper is engineered with 3D Fit Print technology. This provides a noticeably lightweight but structured running feel.
  • The renowned GuideRail support system has been built into the midsole – parallel on either side of the shoe. This ensures balanced support from underneath the arch. This also aids the prevention of over-pronation in a subtle and smooth fashion – giving equal precedence to the comfort of the shoe.
  • The wider midsole, alongside the restructured outsole is designed to a offer an unrestricted and smoother ride.
  • Reflective detailing in the construction allows for improved visibility for use at all times.
  • The use of recycled materials within the mesh upper as well as the tongue, collar lining and laces, has not only made it more climate-friendly than its predecessors, but also more durable.

In Testing

My previous shoe was the Asics Gel-Kayano 28 – which was the most cushioned shoe I have ever trained in. I was intrigued by the new DNA technology being pitched by the Glycerin GTS 20, claiming to provide revolutionary comfort alongside support.

Fortunately, the pitch proved to be consistent with how I felt almost immediately when putting on the shoe. The cushion is expertly engineered and has lasted for miles – both running and walking in the shoe has felt effortless. The support has prevented my usual injuries from over-pronation!


The Brooks Glycerin GTS 20 are most definitely paving a new path for road running shoes – with the use of revolutionary nitrogen-infused technology. This shoe will undoubtedly be held in high regard by those who desire effortless runs, with support that feels natural.

If you are looking for high cushioning, plush, maximum protection for impact with a moderate support, this new model is definitely an option to be considered.
