    It feels tighter in toe box and width than my other Beasts

    2017/04/24 | Maryland |

    It doesn't fit like prior beast with exact same size and width which is frustrating since I've worn them for a decade

    Didn't last long

    I've been wearing Brooks Beast for 10+ years. This '16 model are the lowest quality most uncomfortable pair I've ever had. Very disappointed. Looking elsewhere for replacements.

    Love the beast, I wear them probably about 70% of the time I need a casual comfortable shoe for standing/walking.

    This running shoe surpassed my expectation. Just putting them on in the morning feels good. I get tierd less and accomplish more during the day.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Excellent Shoe

    2017/04/05 | Omaha, NE |

    I'm on my 7th pair of Brooks Beast and LOVE them. I've logged about 5,000 miles on fitbit with the first 6 pairs (3 of the Beast-12 and 3 of the Beast-14) After first using a pair exclusively on the treadmill and trails for several months, I rotate them into my every day shoes, and later to lawn mowing shoes. They never seem to fully wear out, but I love the feeling of a new pair of shoes. And Brooks seems to make them better with each update. I plan to stick with the Brooks Beast shoes as long as they continue to have the high quality and comfort I've come to expect.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    New things not always better

    2017/04/04 | tulsa, ok |

    Worn Beast line for many years (im size 12 EE) , and just changed from Beast 14' to Beast 16 . I am one sorry guy. After 4 days of wearing the shoes, I'm having massive lower back pain. The height of the heel from the ground seems taller than in beast 2014 yet, the shoe feels way less cushioned. IDK if its the lack of the gel in the heel or what. Went back to my old shoes last 2 days and back starting to hurt less. Never had this problem going from '10 to '12 and 12' to '14. Emailing in a return claim today. Not sure what I am going to do as this was Brooks best shoe until the model changes.

    Used to LOVE these shoes...things have changed!

    2017/03/26 | Texas |

    I have purchased many pairs of Brooks Beasts over the years...the last pair I had were sent back for defects after a few weeks and the replacement pair wore out too quickly. I love these shoes so much I recently bought a new pair (even knowing the longevity issues) Beast 16. The web site warned to get a half size bigger but there were no half sizes above 13. The shoes arrived and after one week I decided to send them back...they are too narrow...I ordered 2E as I had for years but these are too tight. I'm guessing they brought on another mfr or moved mfg to another county as these shoes have dropped in quality over the last two years.

    LOVE Brooks, Been a BEAST fan for years, not so sure anymore

    2017/03/24 | Santa Monica, CA |

    Been VERY loyal to Brooks/Beast shoes for years, I mean years. I'm NOT thrilled with the new model, the 2016. Very unfortunate, and not sure what to do. Wear them every day, but nowhere near as satisfies with the shoes as I have been for YEARS prior.

    Yes, I would recommend this!
