Very good cushion,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Brooks Men's Beast Running Shoe (Apparel)
I have been trying to find a good cushiony shoe with stability and with good support. I ordered this 2EE. Normal would have done fine. These are very comfortable multi-purpose shoes. Right out of the box I did not feel that I would need my custom insoles. I eventually did use them. If you are looking for comfort and like Brooks with the new DNA shock system them these are for you. They are intended for over pronators but as I am neutral they still do a good job. The stock insole is the best I ever saw. Plenty of comfort. Why it only got 4 stars is because of the way the tongue liner bunches and folds and sometimes you can feel it but mostly you forget about it. Still only 4 stars. I would order again but I have some Nike vomero 5's coming along with the Brooks Trance 9 and 10 on their way. The 10 won't be available until Jan 12 but have preordered a pair. Also will be evaluating the New Balance 1226. I just sent back 2 pairs of the NB 1906- nothing special for the exorbitant price tag. See my reviews and follow ups on the other shoes coming soon. Yes I would buy the Beast again but not the 2EE just D. Note the women's version is called the Ariel.
