Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 11 Running Shoe:

I have been through more motion control shoes than I care to admit! I have tried all of them, Asics, Saucony, Mizuno, New Balance, etc...not one pair live up to the Beast.
I am 5'7" and 170lbs so I am not the typical guy to be found in these shoes. My issue is that I have pancake flat feet, not even the slightest hint of an arch. I run about 5 miles a day and have suffered through knee injuries and constant shin splints. I had always shyed away from the Beast due to the weight and misconception that they were for big, heavier runners. I started with the Beast 9 and no shin splints, no knee pain, etc...the 10's were not good! The 10's were super heavy, felt very stiff and seemed to lack the cushioning that the 9's had.
I bought the 11's a couple months ago and let me say that Brooks really outdid themselves with this shoe!! They are by far the best Beast that I have tried to date. They fit great, required barely any break in time, cushioning is incredible and the support is perfect. If you are on the fence about the Beast let me push you off of it.....buy them now! Your feet, ankles and knees will be thanking you!

    Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 11 Running Shoe:

    I'm 5'10 and 215lbs. I run every other day and my mileage varies from day to day but equals out to 20-25 miles a week. I've struggled for most of my military career to find a pr of shoes that do not cause knee or feet pain. My Commander recommended the Beast! I bought a pr and have never looked back. No pain whatsoever and I've been buying 2 pairs a year since 2004-2005. I have gotten other people to buy them too. These are worth the 100+ dollars to be able to not have to take time off from running and popping Ibuprofen. I hope Brooks will continue producing the Beast because I am a lifetime customer.

    I have flat feet and a short achillles tendon. This is the only shoe I have found that works 110% for me. I am 210lbs and have been told not to run long distances since I was 10. This year I have run a marathon, 3 halfs, and 4 10ks.

      My second pair of Brooks Beast and I am hooked on this brand. Most comfortable shoes for my flat feet! I can run over an hour in these shoes and have no feet,knee,or hip pain. Great cushioning and pronation control. This years model is not bad looking either for a motion control shoe.

        I have tried several motion control shoes over the past several years and finally found this version of the Beast to be the best one yet. I run 4 times a week training for a marathon and these shoes have worked wonders on my knees and hips so far. I hope they don't tinker too much with this design and I will continue to buy them.

        Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 11 Running Shoe:

        I have Plantar Fasciitis, due to my extremely large and flat feet( size 14). Till this point I have exclusively worn high end New Balance Basketball shoes since I use custom orthotics and the mid/high top allows enough room to place the thick insole in the shoe without raising your foot's CG too high out of the shoe. The beast does accept orthotics failry well for a running shoe. It will prob. be plenty supportive for 90% of people with the stock sockliners as they are very good, but with my PF and high activity level I needed the orthotics still. [$] is a little pricey, but extra manufacturing steps of this particular shoe can help justify it (stability web, etc). If you have flat feet I recomend at least trying these on, they are solid. If weight is more of an issue than foot pain then don't go with these, but if you are buying these then your prob. not an olympic athlete and an extra couple ounces isn't going to be too noticable in your times.

          As a 200lb guy who loves Ironman distance racing, I had a real hard time finding the right shoe....that is until I found the Beast. The interior is supple and comfortable, regardless of the distance, and the cushioning is perfect for my heel-strike running style. Adding this shoe to my gear list has contributed to a reduction in overuse injuries, making my training more fun. When I go running, I'll only go with the Beast

            I'm big. The Beast line has always been there for me to allow me to run...even when I was at my heaviest (275 lbs). I'm currently down to 235, the Beast has allowed me to quickly pick up distance, frequency, and speed due to its close fit, cushioning, and motion control. I've found that the catalog description of the size is inaccurate...I think they fit true. I've got a full size 13 foot, and I wear them with thick padded Thorlo running socks. Even though it may not occur to you, your feet get bigger when you're fat. When I was at my fattest they still fit without squeezing my toes. I've tried other "shoes for big guys," but gave up trying after a few years. If you like the New Balance fit, you may not like the Beast. I've always found that NBs are too boxy. The fit of the beast is more form-fitting. I feel that the Beast absorbs shock better than the NB, too...which is why I've stuck with the Beast.

                Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 11 Running Shoe:

                Know, first of all, that shoe reviews/recommendations are purely subjective. YMMV. I've been running in Brooks Beast for quite a while now. I have worn out pairs of Beast 9s and 10s. I was out on a 7 mile run when I noticed that my feet, ankles and shins seemed to be taking a pounding. When I finished, I looked back and saw that I was due for new shoes (no surprise!). The Beast 11s came soon thereafter and I've been running in them for 2 weeks. I find them to be a nice upgrade from the 10. They feel lighter and not quite as squishy. I have a pair of Addiction 9s and the Beast 11 is not as firm as that, but definitely more firm than the 9 and 10. Great support, as always. The sizing hasn't changed in years, so no problems there. Some say they're "too heavy", but if you're a "big" runner with flat feet, do a couple of ounces really matter? My only wish is that the black would come in wider sizes...I've got too many blue pair around the house!

I'm a big guy 6ft, 255lbs after losing 65 lbs But after my first run in these shoes, I noticed a big difference; No more shin splints or aching knees. I highly recommend this shoe.

                I'm on my 5th pair of Beasts. They're a perfect shoe for my flat feet and painful fascia. Thank you Brooks for allowing me to be able to run again, but seriously...could you make this shoe any uglier?

                Good shoe except that the toe box is still too pointy for me. My big toe rubs on the side. I wear a size 13 so I can't size up another 1/2 size. Size 14 is just too large for me. Besides that the shoe seems to be a good shoe. I wear the new Asics Evol 6 which has a rounder toe box and like the fit much more.

                A great shoe for the heavy runner or walker. I have owned 20+ pairs of the Beast and they provide excellent cushon and support for my 270 pound frame. They are expensive and wear out quicker than I would like but I still love the shoe.

                  2 years ago my low arches side lined me with severe shin splints. The Beast helped stabalize my foot allowing me to up my miles. No shin issues and 2 half marathons under my belt in the last year. Thanks to Brooks for making a great product.

                  Only minor drawback is they are a little on the heavy side but not a deal breaker.

                  I run between 25-30 miles per week.

                    The Beast is a very stable platform for walking and running, particularly if you have matured beyond the competitive running age. The shoe is very comfortable and offers outstanding support and stability. I haven't owned any other shoe since I found them after back surgery in 1997.

                          Provide good support. Husband wears them with his orthotics and they do a good job keeping plantar fasciitis in check. Downside is they're a bit heavy.

                          Excellent update to the Brooks Beast line - they appear to be lighter - which was the only drawback, to the Beast, as i know it.

                          The Brooks Beast IS THE standard for pronation control. I need the Beast, and prescribed orthodics no less, to control my natural pronation.

                          Despite this, and please note that I've run over 12K miles in 7 years, including 4 Bostons...the Beast does work, and really well, if you need it. No knee problems, no hip or other problems - just steady mileage - and i'm 50 years old now - who can ask for more?

                          And, on top of all that, the Beast wears really well. I can get a lot of miles on a pair of Beasts without seeing any problems - and i've owned many, many pairs of the Beast.

                          I really like what Brooks is doing - i mean, 12k miles, 4 Bostons (and i'm BQ'ed and entered for number 5), with no injuries AT 50 years old...just excellent (and no, i don't work for them - this is a real review). whatever they are doing, they are doing it right.

                          So...if you need the Beast, go for it. BTW, in races, i use the Adrenaline GTs - less pronation control but much lighter - OK for racing. Brooks is the real deal, imho.

                          Hope this review helps somebody.

                            I have been wearing the Beast since 1997. I feel that this is the best one yet. The stability and cushioning are outstanding. The fit is slightly wider so my little toe does not rub like the last model did. All in all one of the best shoes I have used in my 35 years of running.

                            Comments about Mens Brooks Beast 11 Running Shoe:

                            I retired from ultra marathon racing with 37 years of running. I still head out the door and run between 2 and 23 miles at a time. I just don't race anymore. I have high arches. Why would I wear a shoe designed for low arches? By far the Brooks Beast 11 and the entire line over the years provided the most cushion and control. Yes, I move a lot slower running in them because of the weight. However, I experience less injuries. With the Brooks Beast 11 I am less prone to twist ankles or ache from pounding pavement. On trails, there is a bit of a trade off. Up mountains the weight makes the climb much slower and challenging. Fatique is a factor on the longer runs. Down mountains, its a well-cushion ride without the pounding pain I may experience with other shoes. For some reason few other motion control shoe seems to work for my feet (Brooks makes a motion control trail shoe that seems to be okay but still not quite the fit of a Beast). I highly recommend Brooks Beast for old retired race veterans with a few accumulated injuries and joint pains.
                            If I could change anything about the Beast it would be the weight. If there was a way to find another shoe with the exact same fit and feel but with less weight I would take them. Other motion control shoes in the Brooks line do not feel anything like the BEAST.

                              I have been purchasing Brooks Beast since 2004. This 2011 model is the best ever. They have got everything right on this one. It is the best Beast I have ever owned. I would highly recommend them. I wanted one pair in both colors but RRS sold out fast. If you have a big frame or are a weight lifter or body builder who likes to do cardio, try these. They will significantly reduce your strike impact, and help prevent injury. The Best of the Beasts!

                                I have narrow, flat feet and have always had trouble finding shoes that both fit well and don't give me problems with my feet. I've tried several of the other motion control shoes, but they end up giving me sore knees or feet. I am 6'4" and about 180, I run 3 to 4 days a week. The Beasts are the best!
