Brooks Compliment - Brooks shoes last - Athletic Shoes

Review by ChuhBaca on 2011-07-29
I purchased a pair of Brooks Beast running shoes. These are not cheap shoes. They cost around $120 a pair, but I over-pronate...badly. First, Brooks makes different shoes to match your feet. Other shoe companies do this too, but they don't make it easy to know which shoe is best for you. They are selling them as fashion accessories and not purpose-built shoes. Brooks are serious shoes.

Secondly, I have had them over a year and I see no signs of any breakdown! With a lot of shoes I can see where their weak points after only 1 day of normal walking!

Finally, these shoes are typically sold at specialty stores where they know shoes. They can check your gait and let you know what shoes are best for you. In the Denver area, Runner's Roost is such a place. Not like buying Nikes at the mall where they really don't know anything about your needs in an athletic shoe.

They have been well worth the cost. Definitely something to consider next time you are looking at a pair of last year's Nikes on clearance.

My daughter has a pair of these and loves them. She runs about 25 miles a week and has had them since April and says they are still awesome.
