Well made, narrower than previous model

I have owned various models of Brooks shoes over the years. They're a high quality shoe that fits my 12 4E feet better than any other brand that I've tried. This is my 2nd pair of Beasts and these are tighter on my feet than the previous model. I've loosened the laces about as loose as they'll go and they seem to be getting less tight, especially around the balls of my feet, as they age. I have 2…

I have owned various models of Brooks shoes over the years. They're a high quality shoe that fits my 12 4E feet better than any other brand that I've tried. This is my 2nd pair of Beasts and these are tighter on my feet than the previous model. I've loosened the laces about as loose as they'll go and they seem to be getting less tight, especially around the balls of my feet, as they age. I have 2 older pairs of Brooks shoes...Addiction 12 and Beast...and when I put either of those on there is a noticeable difference in the fit. So I'm pretty sure that these new ones will get as comfortable as the old ones with time. For my money Brooks makes the best shoes available. Read More

Comfortable, well made shoe

I primarily use this shoe for walking. Excellent cushion and support. A little tight in the toes.

Brooks lifer

Bought these for father-in-law with knee pain and diagnosis of torn meniscus. He is 65, walks bow-legged, and favors 1 leg over the other. After 2 weeks of physical therapy and use of Beasts, he walks virtually pain-free. Will use Brooks for the rest of his life.

The Beast is the Beast But....

The Beast is absolutely the best shoe on the planet for us "Heavy" runners. Having said that Brooks has " tweaked" this shoe a tad over the last couple models and it's getting border line to where it creates a problem for me.

The Beast is absolutely the best shoe on the planet for us "Heavy" runners. Having said that Brooks has " tweaked" this shoe a tad over the last couple models and it's getting border line to where it creates a problem for me. First observation...as they have changed the Beast the Toe Box has gotten narrower. BIG runners need LOTS of toe box room. So Brooks, please pay attention! The other complaint that Brooks will NOT change Is the collar material problem. I've notified, complained and SCREAMED about the collar wearing VERY QUICKLY. BROOKS has even compensated me a NEW pair of Beasts and given me a 20% discount on a Brooks purchase. I appreciate that but Brooks will not FIX This issue. Been like that for ten years.they say it's due to my stride and foot planting. WRONG, OTHER SHOES including the Brooks GTS 17 do NOT DO THIS. DESPITE this the Beast continual design and maufacturing problem, I continue to get my hands on the Beast at least twice a year. By far the best support and stability shoe out there for us big boys. Just wish Brooks would go back to their original goal, make great shoes at reasonable prices. Lately Brooks is slipping into the Nike and ASICS dilemma, making tons of different models and tons of color options to satisfy the fashion conscious that are out there pretending to be "a Runners."

I wear an 8.5 D on the 14.. what would I fit in these

Yes, the Beast 16 is still running a half size smaller. Brooks Running

I just purchased this shoe specifically for extra comfort. I'm a petite 5'2, 119 LB women. I walk 4 miles a day and needed more comfort and support around the heel and forefoot area since i have RA. What i would like to know is this shoe stability as well? I was told by my podiatrist that i need a shoe with good arch support. Thank you!

Hi Evie! This shoe has our highest level of support that we offer! Brooks Running

I'm on my feet 10+ hours a day 5 days a week, average 10-12 miles per day so I'm moving allot, and the surface is concrete. Shoes would not be used for running but for the high cushioning aspect and support. What are your thoughts for a neutral and/or a support shoe? Are these and the Glycerin the most max cushioned Brooks shoes? Thanks, Jeff in MA
