Brooks says “The story of the Glycerin begins in the late 1990s — From early HydroFlow, to our newest nitrogen-infused DNA LOFT v3, the Glycerin always features our most innovative cushion tech. The newest version gives runners ultimate softness underfoot in every stride thanks to the specialized nitrogen-infusion process used to create DNA LOFT v3.
