Comments: On my 3rd pair of Beasts. Was placed in these by mistake because of my size but only good for people who have pronation issue. Since I do not they wear out way too fast on outer edges and case more issue. Don't just get these if you are over 230 pounds as the big box store people will tell you. I will be changing to another shoe with neutral support.

Comments: This is my second pair of the Beast. The first two years ago were a dream! The latest creates severe heel pain. Obviously not the same shoe as the previous.
