Who has em and what are they like?
Hi, I need some new running trainers for my long runs, currently in Asics Kayano. Im a slight overpronator and 6ft 3 16 stone.
Was wondering if these are a good shoe for long distance pain free (ish) runs. Whos got a pair, why did you buy them and are they any good?
I used to run in a par of Beasts. Loads of cushioning and and a good shoe for the heavier runner.
I've dropped a bit of weight now and need less cushioning but I would say that they are worth a try for your frame.
Thanks Chris, im used to wearing a lightweight shoe so not sure on the extra weight of the beasts.
Dan, I believe "The Beast" is a motion control shoe, suitable for the heavier, over pronator. I would advise you to try a pair in a specialist running store where they allow you to run round the store, or on a treadmill.
I haven't any personal experience of the shoe, but many years ago when I first started running, I bought a pair of "Brooks Chariots" which I believe were the forerunners of "The Beast" but they didn't suit me as I was a lightweight. I bought them in ignorance, as I knew nothing about running in those days.
