Brooks Shoe Advisor Makes Picking Shoes Easy

Anyone who know a lot about running shoes has heard the name Brooks. Brooks Running offers a variety of shoes geared toward both runners and walkers, for trails and on the road.

I recently rediscovered Brooks when I found out I was an over-pronator. Taking the advice of a fellow runner, I decided to research different brands of running shoes online to see what the right shoe was for me.

Brooks’s website features a shoe advisor that helped me pick out the perfect (Brooks Branded) running shoe. I checked off the boxes: female, for road running, severe over-pronator, flat foot, medium weight. Brooks offered me two shoes: The Brooks Ariel and the Brooks Addiction 6. Since I had already received two recommendations for the Addiction 6, Brooks simply reconfirmed my decision.

Brooks Beast: Setting the Pace for Motion Control

If you’re a guy looking for motion control in a running shoe, try the Brooks Beast . These are regarded by many as the best running shoe in the market. Brooks, a brand well-known for its durability shoes, has released a new version of the Beast for the past several years.

The Beast is known by many as the best motion control running sneaker on the market. Geared specifically toward over-pronators, people with low arches, and runners who need orthotics the Beast is equipped with e-1™ and e-2™ compounds to increase durability and absorb impact shock. This allows the shoe to have superior cushioning while still offering a great deal of support. The top of the shoe also offers the classic Brooks breathable mesh, allowing airflow through the foot while on long runs.

The Beast, like many motion control shoes, is relatively weighty for a running shoe. It comes in at 14.5 oz in the men’s version. It can cost anywhere between $90-$110, depending on the store or website. Also check out our review of the Brooks Ariel running shoe.

Brooks Ariel: Keeping up with the Beast

Ladies, if you’re in awe/envy of the Brooks Beast, fear not: there is a running shoe out there for you. In addition to the Beast, Brooks features the Ariel for women. In addition to a color job, the shoes are cut a little lighter and weigh in at 12.3 oz vs. 14.5 for the Beast.

Like the Brooks Beast running shoe, Ariel is known by many as the best women’s motion control shoe on the market. Again, it’s geared to runners that over-pronate, have low or flat arches, and those who sometimes use orthotics. The Ariel uses most of the same technology as the beast, including Substance 257, a compound that claims to “offer unsurpassed cushioning and durability.” Both shoes also offer diagonal rollbars on the bottom of the shoe to reduce excess pronation, and heel stabilizers to increase motion control. It can cost anywhere between $90-$110, depending on the store or website. For more information, visit the Brooks Website.
