Brooks Beast 12 Review

Brooks Beast 12

Can you really call a 14-ounce running shoe “light?” Well, heavier runners with flat feet are finding plenty to like about the men-only Brooks Beast 12, not the least of which is how light it feels. If you’re going to invest $140 in the Brooks Beast 12, be aware that many runners report this shoe is narrower in the forefoot and smaller in the toe box than previous installments in the Beast series. Even the height of the toe box has been questioned.

Once excellence is attained, consistency becomes a good thing. A very good thing.

Brooks Glycerin 11

The Brooks Glycerin shoe series for high-arched runners just keeps getting more innovative, more personalized for each user and more expensive.

The latest edition in the Brooks Ghost series isn’t actually lighter than the previous version. But the new Ghost 6 FEELS lighter — which is just one of the things that has runners clamoring for it. Of course, popularity isn’t a new concept for the Ghost designers. The Ghost 6 is the fourth consecutive shoe in the series to win the “Editor’s Choice” award from Runner’s World. It’s a tradition based largely on the “Ghost way” of elite cushioning and comfort.

Good news for medium-arched stability shoe wearers and mild overpronators: the Brooks Ravenna 2 kept all of its forerunner’s quickness and comfort while adding gender- and size-specific flexibility and adaptive cushioning. It’s a great running shoe that provides impressive stability, sells at a relatively low suggested price of $90, fosters customized flexibility and cushioning, works for various distances and styles, and in general expands on its predecessor’s excellent reputation.
