    Great quality. Okay price. Will help overpronators!!!

    By Jeff

    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.

    Ditch the street shoes and buy Brooks Beast

    By Kathryn

    from undisclosed

    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!

    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.

    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.
