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.

They also seem to have tore up quicker. It's been about 4 months, and I think I need a new pair of shoes. The pleasing style of the shoe has maintained from the Brooks '11, but everything else seems to have diminished slightly. I think I'm going to try the Asics Kayano 19 next and perhaps try the Brooks '13 when it comes out, which I think will officially determine my opinion of the brand.

I think for $140 there are way better shoes out there.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is the first time I have left a review for an internet purchase. I am 6'8 and currently 375 lb, I hated running because it hurt my knees and feet so much, now the only thing that stops me is being out of breath. These shoes are amazing and I would not be doing my first 5k if it wasn't for them.

At six foot ,three inches, two hundred forty pounds- I'm a big guy. Also I have a severe over pronation issue. However, I can run in these shoes very comfortably with no foot or ankle pain at all. I highly recommend these shoe to anyone with similar issues.

My husband was having severe lower back pain at work, I did a bit of research and found these shoes recommended for his body type and feet type (flat feet). He didn't think it would make much of a difference and was extremely pleased when immediately his back issues disappeared! He brags to everyone he meets about these shoes, it has been a life changing experience for him! Daily pain to pain-free, you really can't put a price on that!

They said this shoe is running smaller now.... I ordered bigger.

The good news: still like having two clouds on your feet. Just wonderful. This is pair #2 for me and I wish I had worn them much earlier.
