Thank you for your feedback.
This was my first pair of athletic shoes like these and they are a great fit and so comfortable.
They provide great support, fit perfect, and are very comfortable.
Shoes fit perfectly and it feels very comfortable to walk on these shoes.

    I am a big big boy. 300+ pounds of pure love :-) No this is not a personals ad here. For the last few years, I have had lots of trouble with foot pain & have been changing shoes often to find something that works long term for me. I visit a Chiropractor once a week & was just randomly talking when he suggested I go to a proper shoe store & get my gait analyzed. I did so & after trying on 5-6 pairs of shoes, the shoe we narrowed down to was the Brooks Beast in 2E. What a miracle of a shoe this is. I am no expert on quality & no I do not run. If I did so, I would be much lighter. I need a shoe I can wear all day, walk around moderate amount & not have my feet kill me at the end of the day. This does just that. It comes in 2 colors & I own both. These are the only 2 shoes I wear everyday - day in & day out.

    I have bad feet and I tear up my shoes rather quickly, so I buy a new pair every 5-8 months. I don't make a lot of money, I don't have mush to spend on extras, but comfort is one thing I always splurge on. I figure $300 a year for something I will be spending nearly half my time in is money well spent. I am wide footed and wear 10.5 4E. Decent wide width shoes are hard to find. People with wide feet are more limited. Most shoes run a little narrow. All Nike shoes I've bought in the past were too narrow. Some lines of shoes don't offer wide shoes and even some brands don't offer wide shoes. So, when I shop for shoes, I try to find the perfect pair for me, and I spend days researching shoes online.

    Last year I bought the Brooks '11, which was the first time I've ever wore a Brooks brand shoe. At first I was unimpressed, but reviews said that it may take time to break them in and they were right. After a few weeks the shoes became the ...not sure if they were the most comfortable or second most comfortable shoe I've ever wore. New Balance 993's were also very nice.

    Anyway, after 8 months, it was time for a new pair. I was going to order the same pair, but I saw that a newer version was available. The new version was a tab bit more expensive, but I liked the new style and figured it would probably be superior to my last pair in every way. But I was wrong.

    I ordered a pair through Zappos, put them on, and went for a walk. I immediately noticed that they were more narrow and my feet felt a little cramped, but I figured I would break them in and they'd stretch out. And for the most part, they did stretch out, but not quite like I wanted. After about a month, they were still kinda uncomfortable. I could tell they were completely broken in.

    These are probably one of the best control shoes on the market. I've worn them for years and they are an old favorite. Unfortunately for me the fit on these shoes has gone narrow and shorter in the 15D. I measured them against a different older pair and was surprised --even the size 16 was only equal to the old 15D. The width 1/4" smaller. I tried these and the Glycerin 10 and no luck. I'm out of the Brooks Beast. Fingers crossed for a new fit in the future so I can use them again...if they do fit you --they are great shoes.

    Size: 11.5 2E USColor: Deep Royal/Silver/Black Verified Purchase
    I seem to have aberrant ankles which attach to my perfectly flat feet and overpronate most of the time. However, my shoes wear out on the lateral aspect of the heel-- as if I oversupinate. In any case, these Beasts stop the overpronation cold and feel terrific. I haven't had them long enough to know how well they'll wear.

    Size: 11 2E USColor: Slam/Pavement/Black Verified Purchase
    I take a size 11 in most shoes and typically buy Asics brand shoes for my physical activities, which involve weight-training, cycling, walking, and using various brands of Eliptical trainers and stair-stepping machines. These shoes by BROOKS were a successful gamble for me. They fit perfectly, and more importantly, provide an excellent amount of support for the heel and arch region of my feet--where I need it the most. These are the first shoes I have used while exercising that do not leave my feet achy or sore immediately afterwards. This is a rather big deal since I have been afflicted with plantar fasciitis for the last 4 years. In all honesty, they are the most comfortable athletic shoe I have ever owned. Yes, they are a little pricey. But, trust me, they are worth the expense. Do not settle for less or shortchange yourself when comfort in shoes is concerned. I will definitely be buying the BROOKS brand of shoe in the future.

    Size: 12.5 2E USColor: Slam/Pavement/Black Verified Purchase
    After reading the reviews got this in the next size larger for width and half a size larger for length and they fit perfect, would have been too narrow and short if I hadn't. Other than that they are very comfortable and appear well made.

    I tried the adrenaline and realized they lacked all the arch support of the older models, well same for the Brooks Beast. All the arch support has been taken out. There used to be a heavy bar that supported my arch just enough that my foot would stay pretty straight. I walked in the old Brooks Beasts for half a year and never had an ounce of foot pain. What a great shoe, if I could afford it it would have been the only thing I'd ever walk in. This new model though appears to have been completely changed and stripped to make the show more lightweight. This however destroys the point of paying 150 dollars for a shoe since the Beast is now the exact same as all other running shoes: absolutely no arch support, no pronation control, just a flimsy product to sell to neutral feet people.

    So now both my favorite walking shoes (Brooks Beast) and running shoes (adrenaline) are totally gone. Brooks had an extremely popular shoe that was likely selling out, now they have an overly expensive door stopper. I always used the green super feet inserts in these shoes as well. I pronate quite a bit, but by the talk of every shoe store all supportive shoes have left the market. There was a Nike shoe last year with even too much support! That's gone. Tried the new Asics with supposed control but that ran out after a couple runs.

    I have to go to the podiatrist now and hope they have a solution. My shoes are gone. Why did Brooks have to go cheap, why? They were the only shoes for me!

    :::It turns out the Wide 2es, 4es have different support from the regular nonwide sizes. This accounts for any disparity. Sorry to have wasted your time, these Brooks appear to be very similar to models of the past. If only they had kept this philosophy with the adrenalines?:::
