I have been running in Brooks Beast for YEARS. I do not find this latest release (Beast '16) to be comfortable, mainly due to the overall size, weight, and heavy cushioning around the tongue and where my foot reaches my ankle. It is too tight/compact. Is the Addiction (or Adrenaline) a decent alternative for a less bulky fit, while still offering support for over-pronation? Which shoe has more support: Addiction or Adrenaline?
Hi Jeff! The Addiction is the more supportive shoe of the two! I recommend taking a look at the Addiction! Brooks Running
WHat are the differences in models Addiction 12 versus the new Addiction 13- specifically relating to size & width - are they exactly the same as the 12s - with improvements on comfort/cushion, wearability- just what has been changed ? I see there are specifications listed for the 13s- what were the specifications on the 12s ? Thank you, I am very happy with the Addiction 12 shoe Tim
Hi Tim! The Addiction 13 fits a little wider than the 12! It is also softer underfoot with improved flexibility! Brooks Running
When will they come out with the blue and gray ones again?
There will be a new color available in September 2018! (black/red)
What is the differente between the category "support" and "natural"? Many Thanks for you anwser.
Hi! Support shoes are made for someone who pronates. Neutral shoes are made for someone that does not pronate! Brooks Running
I have worn Brooks Beast for 10 years for Hallux Limitus; because of product changes 16 is very uncomfortable in the tongue and heel cup. Would addiction 13 be similar to beast 14? Or something else? Thx
Yes, the Beast 16 features a plush sock liner and secure fit whereas the Addiction 13 has a generous fit and roomy design.
