    Long Time Supporter

    2017/02/10 | Mesa, AZ |

    I have been wearing the Brooks Beast for the last 10 plus years and have always been happy with them. I was excited to see the new Brooks 16's when they came out with a new design. I purchase 4 pair a year since that is the only shoe I wear. I am VERY flat footed but run alot and am very active. The shoes have always been great. That's why I was so surprised when I purchased the 16's and they never seemed to break in like the all my other pairs. They are very uncomfortable and the back heal slips alot on my left foot. I was always able to open up a new box and run some miles in them with no discomfort whatsoever but not with these. I am very leery of purchasing another pair because of my experience. If I do decide to purchase a pair I am HOPING my present pair was a fluke. I don't want to have to start looking and experimenting with other shoes with motion control.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    only shoe my son can wear but doesn't last long

    2017/01/18 | NC |

    My son has very flat feet and this is the only shoe he can wear. He has three pairs right now, in various stages of repair. The first thing to go is always that reinforcement on the toe which starts to come lose. Then the sole starts to go. Then we need new ones. He goes though about three pairs a year. At this price, that's unfortunate. I own many shoes such as Ecco which I've had sometimes for decades. Not this shoe. Its glued together and the sole wears out and its done.

    good shoe, need more colors for such a good shoe

    2016/12/14 | El sereno, Ca |

    work about 8 to 9 hrs a day, dr recomemeded them with the orthopedic inserts i got. i have extreme pronation and these actually help with control. the paid i use to get in my foot is slowly going away.i really like the shoes and am getting use to the inserts. this is the second pair of beasts i have owned and both pair are super! its a very good quality shoe and cheaper than nike, which messed up my foot in the first place. its worth the investment if you concerned about your feet and being comfortable! i will continue to buy this type until they dont sell them anymore! just wish they had more colors or maybe even a shoe custom app where you can make your own shoe!

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Toe Mesh = Bad Design

    2016/12/05 | Westwood, MA |

    I have had several pairs of Beasts over the years and the toe design changed for the worse. The mesh area increased and now my big toe pops out of the mesh on one shoe after a short while. I called Brooks about it and the advice was to put duct tape inside the toe area under the mesh. Better idea would be to go back to more solid material in the toe area!

    Very disappointed

    2016/11/26 | Greenville |

    I have purchased Brooks Beast for many years. The '16 is made with much less quality. Poor fit and comfort.

    I am an urban walker who walks at least 10 miles a day. This shoe was recommended by my podiatrist, but it took me a few years to wear a shoe with the styling of the beast. I finally made the switch and got used to the styling, but the latest change has left me wondering what I'm going to do, I really don't like the change. I'd appreciate a less flashy styling.

    Comfortable but sizing different than previous years

    I have been wearing Beast for the past 7 years. The sizing on this model is different than past years. I need to send them back.

    Love the shoes!!!

    2016/10/11 | Athens al |

    Love these shoes . I have had trouble with plantar fasciitis and heel Spurs . My foot doctor recommended that I try them. Have been wearing them ever since. Would recommend to anyone that has work on concrete. Your not nearly as fatigued or have hurting feet after a long day. I would recommend the company to make Brooks high top shoes and slip resistant shoes.

    Yes, I would recommend this!
