Brooks Running is making an neat shift in their footwear this year to match up the same midsole in their neutral and stability shoes to broaden their GTS lineup. The GTS badge is going to represent the stability version of it's neutral counterpart. While this may cause some initial confusion, over time this should help customers understand the differences between which shoes are meant for people who pronate and those who don't.
HEEL TO TOE OFFSET: 10mm
WEIGHT: 9.4 oz women's/ 10.7 oz men's
USE: Road Running
SURFACE: Road, track
The Glycerin GTS 19 toebox felt roomy but not too sloppy allowing for natural toe splay. Midfoot wrapped around the foot securely. Heel cup felt soft, but also slightly loose so I had to adjust my lacing methods for a more secure fit. Length felt true to size. Tongue shape accommodates with the foot well and I did not experience any rubbing or discomfort. Upper gave the perfect amount of stretch allowing for natural foot movement. The mesh material of the upper also felt breathable. The high levels of DNA loft cushioning give a soft and plush feel allowing for plenty of shock absorption. Outsole also gives plenty of good traction for road running. Overall the shoe fits true to size other than the heel fit being slightly loose.
The shoe feels extremely stable. The guide rails long the medial and lateral sides of the shoe helped keep my foot aligned in a neutral position while running and I did not experience any overpronation. The high cushioning levels and naturally broader platform of the Glycerin GTS 19 also helped me feel supported.
I would recommend the Glycerin GTS 19 as a daily trainer especially for easy runs and recovery runs in which you want a high cushioned experience. The cushioning makes the shoe feel slightly heavy so I would most likely rotate in a different shoe for tempo runs and races.
This shoe is going to be similar to other high cushioned running shoes. It feels very similar to the Adrenaline GTS 21 in terms of support, but goes a step up in terms of overall cushion. It also feels similar to a New Balance 860 and Saucony Guide.
Glycerin GTS 19 maintains the same high levels of cushioning and guide rail system as the previous Transcend. The upper material and laces are improved on this newer model along with the distribution of the DNA loft cushioning. It feels as if the cushioning is distributed more evenly along the lateral side of the foot. It also feels as if the transition through my gait cycle feels more natural in the shoe and smoother than previous versions.
Brooks' new Glycerin GTS 19 is for people who want a high cushioned and soft daily training shoe who need extra support for mild to high levels of overpronation. I would recommend this shoe if you want to feel lots of cushioning while running and don't mind a shoe feeling slightly heavy.

I have been running since middle school cross country which means I have been running for close to 9 years. I have experience at both the high school and collegiate levels with both cross country and track. I also have experience with long distance training for half marathons and marathons. Some other interests I have outside of running include hiking, backpacking, yoga, and other team sports. I love to run a mix of roads and trails. I work in the running industry at Running Lab as a sales associate and plan to make health promotion a priority in my career as a future physician. My favorite thing about running is that it brings people together from different backgrounds and circumstances to share a love for a common passion and goal. I also love the joy it can bring people as they improve their physical and mental wellbeing.
