    Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

    I have worn Beast since 2005. These are the best running shoe...until now. The sole is already breaking down and after 150 miles my heal is completely into the foam and no rubber at all. I am extremely disappointed and will now look to say goodbye to the beast and move onto another shoe. This is a sad day!

      Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

      Have been running in Beasts for years, and very disappointed in this model. As other reviewers have mentioned, the sizing feels way off. And even worse, this model seems much less durable than the previous models - maybe because by making it lighter they've lessened the cushioning. Either way, after only several months of 25 miles/week, I'm already feeling the shoe break down and pain in the knees. Won't buy again - time to start shopping for a new go-to shoe.

      Comfortable snug fit. As recommended I ordered a half size up but the tight fit doesn't leave room to wear a sock. Luckily I don't wear socks with running shoes.

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

        The product is made really well and definitely is geared (shaped) towards favoring a lean towards the outside of the foot. It has a lot of support and cushion you would seemingly find in a basketball shoes around the heels. Can't give the 5 stars just because since I bought them, I have done two three mile runs and my knees having been aching all day and am having some middle back issues, which is odd because I only have a bad lower back. I am thinking these issues are stemming from the fact that I already have corrective insoles for posterior tibial tendinitis developed while running 30+ miles a week a few years ago. I am glad to be a VIP member because I am going to back to some more neutral shoes to see if that works. I am coming off of a pair of Asics gel-flux's.
