Updated with a new no-sew upper for added comfort and a sleeker fit, the men's Beast '16 road-running shoes remain the most supportive in our line, ensuring maximum stability plus an insanely comfortable, cushioned feel.

    I love the beast the only shoes I will ever buy again!

    2017/03/22 | Milford, Michigan |

    I bought these shoes after having a double back fusion on my 41 birthday in 2015. I wear a 14 4E and can never find shoes learned of Brooks ( which actually I had forgot about) tried them on and will never go back. Thank you for making such a great product!

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    As Expected - The Best Shoe on the market

    2017/03/22 | Ann Arbor, MI |

    I have used this brand for over 14 years - From when I was over 400+ lbs down to my current weight. They not only have served me well but they are the one consistent piece of equipment that I can count on day in and day out. I typically keep 2 pair around and alternate them. The work for me on the treadmill for my 2 hour runs on Wednesdays, on the road, doing circuit training, on the trail, climbing up Camelback when I visit Arizona and my Spin classes when I don't want to use my Clip Ins. I wear a 16 2E and these provide great cushioning and support. Especially when I happen to misstep on curbs etc. They are like top of the line tires on a car. Irreplaceable. In the interest of open disclosure - I have become a Brooks Ambassador as of January 2017. However I been a loyal brand user since 2003!

    First time concern with product

    2017/03/13 | San Jose CA |

    I have been using the Beast for a while now (purchased several pair over the years)with great experiences. I relied on the fit and usability. Prior to ordering the current pair I read a recommendation to buy a 1/2 larger size because the shoes ran small. The length seems to fit ok, but the width is terrible. the top bunches up near the toe causing the shoe to pinch my feet. I am really contemplating whether I should buy this model/brand in the future.

    Almost an excellent shoe

    2017/03/03 | Hudson Valley New York |

    Recommended to me by my teams podiatrist. The Achilles tendinitis that I'd had for 10 years went away within two weeks. However, my great toe goes through the cheap toe box within weeks.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    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.

    Yes, I would recommend this!
