I am currently in the market for new shoes. Before I buy I usually research each shoe that strikes my interest. The GTS 4 struck my interest, but when I was reading about the Glycerin I noticed that it has the same features in them as the GTS 4. I currently run in ASICS 2060 and Nike Air Max Moto and use ASICS DS Trainers for racing. I try to stick with shoes that have a dual density midsole because of my weight. I have been considering the following shoes. Saucony Grid Omni 3, Brooks Adrenaline GTS 4, Saucony Grid Hurricane, ASICS Gel Creed and now maybe the Brooks Glycerin. The 2060 have been the best shoe I have ever ran in, but would like a shoe to last longer then 350 miles. My Nike's I have 200 miles on but the tread has worn out, my 2060's I have 250 miles on and will need to replace them soon from past experience with them. Has any heavy guys like me ran in any of those shoes.
My runnining profile.
ASICS shoe size: 10.5 (U.S)
Nike shoe size: 10.5 (U.S.)
Foot Strike: Mid foot
Weekly mileage: 35-50 (depends on work schedule)
Tread were on old shoes wears fastest in center of forfoot area. appears to be in straight line with heel. Little or no wear seems to appear in heel area.
