Additional Information

The name is no coincidence: runners just can't get enough of the tried and true support in the Addiction 11. We maintained its generous DNA-ified ride for cushioning and support that adapts to your needs, and added more in-shoe comfort like a better sockliner and an asymmetrical upper with suede overlays. One run and you'll be hooked.

I'm a very heavy woman with feet that roll sharply outward who was having severe foot pain from walking; particularly from walking the dog.

Multiple x-rays later I learned from the podiatrist that what I thought was a compression fracture was a LACK OF SUPPORT!

The doctor provided me a list of options for shoe models and sent me to a running shop where they watched me walk. We found Brooks to be the best fit and best control. They didn't have wide women's Addictions so I went with the men's, which were not so pretty, but from day one my feet stopped hurting. It was as if a little shoe angel had come and blessed my feet! I would not take them off until I found the all-white walking model (which I'm wearing now) and tried the women's, which fit very well also.

Sooooo... this is my fourth pair and I do find the Addiction 11 the slightest bit tighter across the widest part of my foot, but they are still the best shoes I've ever owned.

They're cute enough, but not terribly feminine and certainly not acceptable for anything but the most casual situations. And they do not keep water out, which is a negative here in the Great Northwest. I find them best for indoors, pavement walking, and using the exercise bike.

I would most like to see some color variety, particularly more feminine colors. A nice purple/lavender or hot pink/pale pink with a light grey would be adorable.

Either way, thank you Brooks, way to go - you saved my tootsies and I'll be forever grateful. I'd love to buy two pair to switch in and out, so roll out those color choices, please please please! I beg you. Really. Seriously. Please.

I have been purchasing the Addiction and Ariel for at least the last 10 years. Last year I purchesed the new Ariel and couldn't wear them because they changed the cushioning or something and my feet killed me every time I ran in them. So I bought the new Addition and had no issues. This year I bought the Addition and ran in to the same problem I had with the Ariel. I have no idea what they are changing, but my feet felt like I was running on nails by my first mile (I normally run at least 3 easily). I instantly returned these shoes too. I am trying hard to find another motion control shoe to purchase that works with my feet since I have only ever used Brooks before.

Comments about Addiction 11:

The Addiction 10 was the most comfortable shoe they made. The changes made to the Addiction 11 leaves must to be desired. The shoe is 1/2 size too small. I had to get an EE width as the width is a full size too small. Cushioning is poor. My toes still feel cramped and they still squeeze the soft tissue along the outside of my foot. Horrible design. The new Ariels are even worse. I always wore Brooks but need to find something else.

      Comments about Addiction 11:

      Brooks has fixed the major gripe I had with the 10 version of the Addiction. The lacing is back to what I would call "traditional". On the 10 there was this little peice that was attached to the shoe with elastic and contained 2 of the lace holes. The elastic was not durable at all and did not help with my lacing comfort. I have worn this style since version 7 and so far these are feeling and looking good enough to buy a second pair. Oh and I love the new small loop at the top of the tongue. It really helps keep the tongue centered rather than letting it slip off to the side.

      These shoes are amazing for stability, however the cushioning needs some work. But, that is my only complaint. PLEASE don't change this shoe otherwise. It has taken quite a while to find a shoe that fits all my needs.

          Comments about Addiction 11:

          I've been buying Brooks Addiction for 6 or 8 years. I had a very bad injury and need a knee replacement. The stability that Addiction offered has allowed me to prolong the inevitable for quite a while. I was been buying 10 online due to the cost savings until I couldn't find it in my size anymore. Finally switched to 11, and the redesign is the WORST. The product seemed cheapened (quality, not cost) and doesn't seem anywhere near as stable as the old models. To add insult to injury, it only comes in one hideous color.

            I recently purchased my first pair of Brooks 11 Addiction. Tried them out today and was disappointed. I had bought them a size bigger as the salesman suggested. I wore them for only an hour inside the house. I felt like my little toe was pinched and I had pain on the ball of my other foot. These were one of the shoes suggestion by my podiatrist for walking. I was expecting more for the amount of money I spent.
