Road Runner Sports is currently offering the Brooks Glycerin 17 for just $100, a can’t-miss discount of $50. The running shoe was released in March 2019, and one can only imagine a Brooks creative meeting a couple years ago, when the brand said “Ah, f*ck it” and decided to make the comfiest sneaker ever. This shoe has a passionate following of nurses, older folks with bad knees, and of course, long-distance runners, who rely on its DNA Loft technology (a mix of EVA foam, rubber and air) for logging serious miles.

The shoe also features a plush interior and a flexible mesh upper. If you’re new or returning to running, as many of us are at this time, this is an ideal candidate for long sessions on the road. Your knees deserve a break, and the DNA Loft tech isn’t just cushy — it offers energy return to propel you forward. The reason the Glycerin 17 is discounted a full $50? The Glycerin 18 just dropped. It’s a great running shoe in its own right (they added some stretch in the upper and tinkered with the midsole) but it’s hard to argue with a deal like that on the 17.
