I purchased a pair of these shoes to take on a trip to Disney World because I knew we'd be doing a lot of walking (well long trip). These replaced by New Balance 990's, which I had been buying for years now. I liked the NB 990 shoes, but they seemed to lose their comfort after a just a couple weeks use for some reason. For that reason, I decided to try the Beast 14's.
First off, I was extremely pleased with their look out of the box. Very sharp looking shoes. I was also impressed right away by their comfort, they were more comfortable (more cushion) than the NB 990's had out of the box. My concern was how long would the comfort hold up? Well, after walking 10-12 miles a day for 7-8 days at Disney, I was shocked that they felt they exact same on the last day than they did on the first. Even now, 8 weeks after purchasing them, and wearing them every day, they still feel brand new. I normally keep shoes about a 12-14 months before buying another pair, and I'll probably do the same with these... as of now, I see zero reason not to buy another pair of Beast 14's when it comes time to order some. They are a bit pricey, but in my opinion, well worth it if comfort is important to you.
