The Glycerin 12 is the first shoe to follow the footsteps on the Transcend. It adapts some of Transcend’s key technologies, that will certainly catch the attention of cushion lovers. If you like the float experience, and you have neutral feet, then you are in for a treat!
The main enhancement is the Super DNA. The Glycerin series is well known for its comfort and cushioning, because of its BioMoGo DNA. Glycerin 12 enhances it even further, into Super DNA. It now has 20% to 25% more cushioning than before!
The second enhancement to the comfort factor is new Ideal Pressure Zones. It optimizes pressure distribution from the heel to forefoot. The Ideal Pressure Zones are now more pronounced and clearly marked out.
Two other key technologies are worth mentioning: The Rounded Heel helps your body’s alignment by promoting a more efficient foot strike. And the upper maintains the 3D Fit Print technology, giving you a wrapped fit that conforms to your foot.
Some interesting fun facts about the Glycerin 12:
In terms of cushioning and comfort, the Glycerin 12 can be ranked at number 2 – just after the Transcend. If comfort and cushioning is most important to you, and if the Transcend bursts your wallet, then the Glycerin 12 is the perfect answer.
For runners who like it light, the Glycerin 12 is made lighter than ever! It closes the gap on the Ghost in its lightness, to a difference of only 0.5 ounces. That is like, 14 grams? Just about the weight of a few pre-run cashew nuts.
The Glycerin 12 retails at the same price as its previous version, at RM 559.
