Men's Road Running Shoes

This Beast puts feet in their happy place. Soft cushioning adds comfort while an updated toe box offers more space. Sounds like a pretty nice beast to us.

Excellent shoes!

I bought this shoe to replace an earlier pair of Brooks that were a half-size too small. So far, these shoes seem to be just right. They are very comfortable and provide good arch support.

I love the Beast!

I love the Broks Beast! This is my 3rd pair. The only critique i have is about color selection. I l;pved my p[reviopus red pair and wanted anopther. But, my only choice this time was white or black. Nevertheless, they are still the post comfortable pair of shoes i've owned.

The only show for me

I agree with some of the other comments about looks. These look like "old man shoes" and have questionable styling but they do the trick for me (have two bad knees). I just wish that having bad knees didn't mean you had to have shoes that look like you have bad knees! Lol. I won't stop buying them though. They do the trick.

My husband is flatfooted on both foot and these are the only shoes that fit his every need.

Awesome quality but not a great looking shoe

I recently had two knee replacements and was told by the surgeon and my physical therapist that these are the shoes that I need. Unfortunately I'm not happy with the way they look and based on that I would never have purchased them. But they do get the job done. Excellent quality. Just wish they were better looking.

Do any of your athletic shoes for men come in a B width?

2019/04/13 Brookfield WI R)Laz

Yes. The Adrenaline GTS 19, Ghost 11 and Addiction 13 are available in narrow B width. Thank you!

When do the Brooks Beast typically go on sale? I am taking a trip to Seattle soon, would you recommend buying the store at the HQ or the store? Thanks!

2019/04/13 CA Jason

They typically go on sale about a month before the new version comes out. The Beast 20 will not be out until 2020.

I bought my Brooks Beast pair in Feb 2017 in size 13 and they fit well. Should I get the same size if I buy a new Beast here in 2019? I was told that the Beast in 2017 ran one size small.

2019/04/10 Ventra CA David

The Beast 18 dose have a new enhanced fit. They will be a bit roomier. I still suggest sticking with the same size. Thank you!

Does the shoeliner come out for orthotics?

2019/03/10 undisclosed Bob

Yes, all Brooks models feature removable insoles.

The company needs to offer different colors of the beast for men ! Would be a nice change from the dull gray or black all the time

2019/03/05 Ohio Elli

We will have a new color available this fall.
