Additional Information

The fit and feel of a running shoe in a casual everyday walker? What's not addictive about that? The new Addiction™ Walker now comes with durable, energy-returning MoGo midsole cushioning, a more supple full-grain leather upper, strong support, and reliable slip-resistant outsole. This shoe provides sturdy support mile after mile by supporting low arches and keeping pronation under control.

The Addiction Walker is also available with V-Strap closures -- just like the lace-up version, but with the convenience of hook-and-loop straps to get you out the door in a flash.

I have been wearing the "old style" Addiction Walker for some time now. I need to wear otrhotics in my shoes and over pronate badly. The "old style" was not very well padded and the tongue kept shifting to the side. However, they fit my orthotics well and their shape contours nicely to the shape of your foot. People who wear otrthotics already have a foot problem and many times is accompanied by chronic pain. Cushioning is an issue!! I recently went on a search to find a more cushioned shoe. I found some other brands were much more cushioned for around the same price. Funny thing.....neither one fit like the Brooks Addiction Walker. I needed shoes so I bought another pair of Addictions. It's the only shoe I can wear and I wear them 24/7. To my surprise changes had been made in the "new style!!" I love the cushioning and the new features so please leave this shoe alone now! Please keep in mind people with medical conditions truly need the cushioning. You have no idea what a gift COMFORT is for us.

I have worn the "old" style of this shoe for many happy years, as it was the only shoe I'd been able to find for my diabetic feet. This new style is very narrow and I tried going up a half size and even tried going up a width, but just couldn't get the right fit.

So, I'm having to track down some place to hopefully stock up on the old style before it's no longer available. If I cannot find them, I don't know what I'm going to do. These shoes were the only thing helping me stay mobile as it is very difficult for me to walk.

    Comments about Addiction Walker:

    I like these shoes, and they are comfortable and sturdy. The fit is good in length, width and toe box feel. I'm glad I used the Brooks online sizing helper tool, because it guided me to order a half size larger than what I ordinarily wear, based on the shoe model number for a different pair of shoes I already had. I am very satisfied with these shoes for their support and stability, as my feet need these things to help me with my plantar faciatis and foot neuropathy issues.

      I work at a theme park, and I have had the same pair of these shoes for three years. I am on my feet all day, and I would not be able to survive without these shoes. Finally, after three years it is time for me to get a new pair. I am 28, and I love these shoes. I have had surgery on my feet four times. I also own the white pair.

          They're a little clunky, but I think that may come from what I want in the shoe;
          Cushioning and comfort. I primarily use the shoes in cool weather. The shoe
          Is too hot in the summer.

            Good shoe, good support, wear it for walking my dog on asphalt and dirt paths. Fits my narrow foot well and supports my ankle. The all leather shoe works better than a mesh style which allowed sand and dirt to get into my socks. Also keeps my feet dry when it's raining.

              These shoes are very comfortable. They run on the small side, so I get them half a size larger than my usual size and they fit just fine. I use them mainly for walking.

                Comments about Addiction Walker:

                These looks more like office shoes instead of regular athletic shoes, so I got these from Brooks website to try as I can't find them in local stores. And it's good that they have extra wide width as well.
                So the shoes arrived and I tried them out. Oh my, they are so heavy that I feel that every walking step is a part of working out. I think these are way heavier than the Women's Addiction 11 (the athletic pair that offer control). I already exercise a lot so I do want to relax my feet when I am not exercising. So these aren't good for me as walking shoes or office work shoes. And I don't think I would want to exercise in these shoes either as they aren't comfortable for any rigorous movement. My feet also felt very hot as if they were in sauna when I tried them on. And I was only trying them on by walking around carpeted floor inside my home. So I can't imagine how hot my feet would get if I am walking for hours in these shoes. I need to note that I live in Honolulu, HI, where the weather is very humid. So I can't really tell how I would feel in them if I try them on in colder, drier places. But as now I am living in a hot and humid environment, these shoes aren't working out for me, so I had to return them right away.

                  Comments about Addiction Walker:

                  I needed shoes for a winter vacation that will involve a lot of walking in cold, probably wet weather. I'm 65 with not-great knees, and I wear orthotics, and these are the most comfortable, supportive shoes I've ever bought. I went to a small, local running shoe retailer and the clerk picked these for me -- first ones I tried on. I'd never heard of these shoes before I bought them, but I LOVE them!

                    I walk about an hour a day. I have bunions and use orthotics. Brooks shoes are a good fit for me. I have two concerns: traction is not good in wet weather, and they start breaking down after about three months; I would like them to last at least six. Although I will continue to buy Brooks, it would make me even more loyal if these problems were resolved.
