Finally, a big guy running shoe. There's a reason why they call it the "Beast" and it's true to its reputation. Highly recommend this shoe for all types who enjoy pounding the pavement/trails. I weigh in at an athletic 265, shoes are of utmost importance when training days involve cardio. I run trails, hills and roads and simply love this shoe. I've finally found the answer, previous expensive sneakers of various brands would quit on me after two months. Felt like the soles would bottom out and lost their POP. Brooks has created a very durable stylish running sneaker that can withstand every stride you take in any terrain.

I love this shoe. It is very comfortable and definitely provides the foot and ankle support I need. Be aware, though, that the Beast size runs small. I normally wear size 12 D (US) in shoes and boots. Starting with size 12 D in the Beast, it took me three tries before I found that size 13 D was the perfect fit for me. Both 12 D and 12 1/2 D were not long enough.

This shoe stands up to you. That's why I bought it. I needed something to correct the motion of my foot to a better efficiency. The Beast took this on and stayed the course. I have tried other shoes throughout the years and they don't take the pounding as the Beast does. Now for added out of this world master control and comfort, I pulled out the in sole and inserted SUPERFEET. I have literally created a super shoe. I typically get years from the insert and a Beast lasts about 9 months with every other day 10 mile hikes or more. When I buy a new Beast, the old ones go to my casual walk around status while the new ones are for exercising. This rotation allows me maximum return on the investment and experience. For people who need pronation correction, support and something that wont fail when hard pressed...the beast be for you.

I'd also recommend: New Balance

These are quality shoes. Very comfortable this particular shoe is made for flatter footed people. If you need the stability it provides and have a medium to high arch get a good insole or arch support. Unlike other brands once you find a size that fits in Brooks shoes that size will continue to fit regardless of the style. I have worn shoes by them for a few years and have not had a reason to look for something else.

This is my 4th pair of Brooks Beast. They are still a great shoe but the sizing has change. I always bought a 10.5 for the first 3 pairs but this pair I had to send back and get an 11. The design has changed some but not much. Still, in my opinion, the best shoe on the market.
