Ditch the street shoes and buy Brooks Beast

By Kathryn

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

My husband was a runner for years and would only buy the Brooks Beast to help with his pronation issues. He is now 68 and no longer runs (now he only cycles), but he developed chronic heel pain wearing street shoes all the time. I convinced him to return to the Brooks Beast and after a couple of weeks walking in these shoes only, his heel pain has been relieved!

By Ron

Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

I use this shoe for walking. I walk 5 to 6 miles per day, usually at something over 4 miles an hour. So far, this shoe has been just as comfortable as my previous Beast model. I like the motion control, since I have a tendency to over pronate. and I do enjoy the cushioning. I've been using them for about two weeks, and, so far, so good.

Wait for the next version

By Brian

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

I run/ walk about 40 miles per week and I am a hefty guy, and 235 lbs. The stability part is great but overall fit is not good. 11s are a tad small but 11.5 is to wide in the ball area and my foot slides around.
Keeping these as my every kicks but moving on to a different brand for running.

Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

I don't know what they've done to this shoe but I think the quality is down and fit has gotten progressively worse since the '12 model. I have been buying Beasts since 2006 and this one has little cushioning and is very uncomfortable compared to previous models. I have loved Brooks shoes and customer service, but had to return these after just a few hours of wearing. They were killing my feet! I am trying the Adrenaline GTS 16 in hopes that it will be softer, as Brooks claims. If not, it is reluctantly back to NB 990V4s for me.

Service and delivery comments:

Great customer service let down by an expensive and questionable product.

    Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

    Amazing support and comfort without feeling clunky. Was surprised that the suede is even more comfortable than the regular version, since it doesn't have all the extra stitched panels. It also feels fairly cool, with lots of ventilation and a light-feeling material. It's my favorite Beast of all-time (I think I've been through at least five generations).

    Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

    Brook's Beast has been my go to shoe for several years now however this last pair has not lived up to the standard I am used to. With every foot strike the right shoe makes a loud clap as if a board were attached to the bottom. While I have no doubt Brook's would have gladly exchanged these shoes due to my training schedule I couldn't afford not having them. I must say they are great in all other areas. Hey, at least I don't have to worry about scaring other runners as I creep up on them!

    Problem with Beast 16

    By Thomas

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

    I will not buy another pair of 16s. I've worn Beasts (size 9, D width) for approximately 20 years. Over the years, I could count on motion control, decent cushioning, consistent fit and comfort. I noticed a little change in fit on the 14. I find significant change on the 16. The increase in "roominess" in the ball area is too much, adversely impacting comfort and ability to move with agility/control.

      I only have 150 easy miles on this shoe since September 2016 and the lugs on the sole of the shoe are worn off at the toe and the heel. I'm a light weight at 145#. I've owned at least 5 or more pair and this shoe has a tight fit and the runner soles are not durable. Very disappointed.

      A previously excellent shoe that lost its way.

      By Harri

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

      I have been running in Beast shoes for over 20 years. They have become lighter, sexier, more expensive and less functional. The motion control is still excellent but the cushioning of the original shoe is long gone. I think the Beast, has lost its way somewhere along its evolution. I don't plan to buy this shoe anymore. If you need cushioning, try the Hooka One series.

      Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

      Great improvement on a already good shoe. This is my third generation of Beasts and I like this one best. Sizing for me is correct but they do fit a bit more snug on the sides which may have meant an overall tighter fit for some. But I was a 10 on old Beasts and 10 with new.

      The Problem with Brooks Beast.....

      By SEA

      from Seattle

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 16 Running Shoe:

      When Brooks went from the Beast 10 to the Beast 12 stores were urged to tell their customers to go up 1/2 size. So with the Beast 12 I went to a size 12.5 Extra Wide (aka 4E) shoe. It fit fine. Luckily with the Beast 14 the fit/feel of the shoe didn't change, I was still a 12.5 Extra Wide. I loved the Beast 14 and was looking forward to the Beast 16. But Brooks went and did it again, making the shoe's fit/feel a guessing game. A 12.5 Extra Wide in the Beast 16 is simply too big and caused pain for me instantly. I shipped my Beast 16 back and decided to stay with the Beast 14. I understand the need to change a show cosmetically every few years and adding/removing technology that works better for the shoe, but the actual fit should remain the same. I have no idea what size the Beast 16 will be for me, others report the Beat 16 fits too big for them, some say too small for them. This shouldn't be a guessing game for the consumer as now we need to try and send back sizes we may not need or work out for us.

      The Beast is on a 2-year cycle as are all Brooks shoes, so we won't see see a new Beast until September 2018 so the Beast 16 is it until then. Who knows how that shoe will feel when released, but I just wish Brooks would not make it so the consumer has to waste time trying multiple sizes in their quest to find the proper size. Customer service with Brooks is some of the best though.
