Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

The info says to order half size up, and I would agree. I used the size from my precious Beast's and they were super tight. Ordering next size and will see how they go from there.

Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

Me:

I have medium to high arches and foot roles inward towards ankles ( over pronation ).
I walk minimum of 60 miles per month, average 100 miles, max 150-200 miles.

a. minimum of 3 miles per day typically first thing in morning.
b. typically 6 miles a day : 3 miles morning & evening

Since getting Beast 14s & 16s; the past few weeks I've easily been walking 5.5 to 7 miles in one session five days a week.

The Beast 14s & 16s should be excellent for prevention and recovery of plantar faciitis as the shoe is rigid from heel all the way to just behind the toes and the shoe cannot be twisted.

Quick Summary:

Beast 14s & Beast 16s do not fit nor feel same:

Normally I wear 12.0 D in all other shoes
Beast 14s I wear 12.5 D
Beast 16s I wear 13.0 D

Beast 16s:

Pros:
a. Superb Cushioning.
b. Excellent Arch support.
c. Excellent Motion Control ( over pronation ) ankle roles inward.

Cons:
Heel Box isn't very snug
Toe Box is a bit cramped.

Costs:
Beast 16's are expensive, much more than I've ever paid for a running shoe before.

Beast 14's are on sale since Beast 16s have come out and are reasonably priced.

Fit & Feel:
Feet feel great in Beast 14s. Love this shoe, no complaints.

Beast 16s has lot more cushion and better arch support than Beast 14s.

Beast 16s feel really good, much, much better than Beast 14s in arch support, motion control, cushioning.

Beast 16s also feel better than Beast 14s in landing and transitions from heel to toe.

The Beast 16s feel so comfortable, like walking with pillows on your feet, but not too squishy…

I'd go as far to say, Beast 16s are much better shoe than Beast 14s " if " they " fit " perfectly and are " completely " comfortable to " your " feet.

I agree with Brooks statement that Beast 16s are "insanely comfortable" following exceptions:

Heels on both shoes doesn't feel as snug when walking. There's slight slippage ( moving up and down ) when walking.

Toe Box is lil cramped, especially right shoe.

Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

I am an amputee unable to wear a prosthesis at this time. I wear the Beast 16 on my right foot. It provides balance, comfort, and stability. Hope to be back in a prosthesis soon, but am glad to have the Beast!

    Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

    Every time I find a great shoe this happens. A new model comes out and they make them tighter in the toes or narrow on the sides. Why cant companies leave the the overall fit alone. It makes no sense.

    Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

    I'm trying to find good motion control and stability shoe with excellent cushion and room in the toe box.

    For as long as I can remember I've always wore size 12 D in any shoe dress, atheletic, running, basketball.

    I've been trying New Balances 990v4 and Brooks Beast 14 and 16.

    Both New Balance 990 v4 ( 12.5 D ) and Beast 14 ( 12.5 D ) feels good in length, snug in heel and comfy in toe box.

    I try Beast 16 12.5 D & 13 D and toes feel cramp in toe box and pushing against top of shoe because length of shoe seems shorter. I'm going to order a 13.5 D which is 1.5 size longer to sew if that makes a difference.

    The Beast 16 heel box doesn't feel as snug as the Beast 14s. The Beast 14 and the New Balance 990 v4 seem to have a slightly higher lip that grabs the heel and holds it more snugly or it could be cushion which permits heels to sink more deeply into shoe in the heel area.

    I'm going to order a Beast 16 13.5 D which is 1.5 larger than what I've always wore before and full size larger than the Beast 14 and New Balance 990 v4 I've been trying and testing ( walking 3 to 6 miles ) daily in.
