The Brooks Beast has defined the motion control category for 12 years in a row. The 2013 version is the lightest and most responsive yet, and yet still somehow maintained the stable controlled ride that Beast runners have come to know and love.
From the Brooks website: “Legend has it that Zeus and Hera needed running shoes and thus, the Beast and the Ariel were born. Sturdy and supportive, these leading Control shoes perfect the blend of comfort and stability. The Caterpillar Crash Pad delivers flexibility underfoot without sacrificing assurance, a midsole stability web brings more integrity to the foam on the upper without added weight, and full-length Brooks DNA delivers adaptable cushioning to every unique stride. We also added some slick new styling to make this Beast look fast, and new feminine details to make the Ariel more stylish. Truly the shoe of shoes, the new and improved Beast and Ariel are simply divine.”
