Brooks Beast -
A standout among control running shoes, the Brooks Beast running shoe, like its sister shoe, the Brooks Ariel for women, boasts a growing number of fiercely loyal fans who swear by its performance. Sporting a breathable Element Mesh™ upper, this men's running shoe combines maximum support and long-lasting comfort built upon a reliable, motion-control platform. The full-length Caterpillar Crash Pad delivers flexibility; a midsole stability web reinforces the foam layers without adding weight; and full-length Brooks DNA protects the foot while providing a customized ride with optimal cushioning. Eco-friendly BioMoGo lends additional support, while the Extended Progressive Diagonal Rollbar (PDRB) creates smooth transitions and contributes to the superior pronation control this shoe is known for. Providing premium wet-dry traction, the Brooks Beast athletic shoe is finished with an outsole that pairs HPR Plus and HPR Green compounds for abrasion-resistant performance and environmentally friendly composition.
- Outsoles on the Brooks Beast 12 shoes are constructed out of a mix of rubber compounds to maximize longevity; compound also offers excellent traction in wet and dry conditions
- Lightweight and flexible polyester and nylon mesh uppers are abrasion resistant and breathable, and dry quickly; overlays provide structure and support
- Polyester and nylon air-mesh linings provide great moisture management to keep feet comfortable on the run; internal support saddle helps wrap and hold feet in place
- Forefoot MC-Pod configuration balances midsole and outsole components to set feet in an efficient, balanced position, maximizing motion control and flexibility
- Flex grooves enhance midsole flexibility for an effortless, efficient ride that maintains cushioning; midsole density has been tuned to optimize cushioning per gender
- Midsoles feature BioMoGo polymer alloy foam, which provides cushioning, energy return and reduced foot fatigue; nontoxic additive helps midsoles break down in landfills
- Outsoles also feature a special decoupled crash pad design that smooths out the landing zone throughout the heel strike
Support and Cushioning:
- Insole boards use a foam polymer alloy formulated to resist compression and rebound more quickly than standard EVA, offering lasting, efficient cushioning and flexibility
- Cushioning pods use high viscosity liquid to react instantly to each step, dispersing impact and customizing the cushioning for different runners and running styles
- Midfoot thermoplastic urethane arch shanks control torsional flex at midfoot for control and support
- Extended PDRB™ (Progressive Diagonal Roll Bar) triple-density medial posts work to control excessive pronation and balance transitions from midfoot to toe-off
