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.

Unhappy with my Brooks :(

By LizzieLu

from Maryland

About Me Casual/ Recreational

Pros

  • Good Arch Support
  • Good Traction
  • Pronation Control

Cons

  • Narrow / Tight
  • Uncomfortable

Best Uses

  • With Orthotics/Inserts

Comments about Addiction 11:

I have owned Brooks for the last ten years, and this is the most unhappy I've been with their shoes. I am a severe overpronator and use a custom orthotic. I order a wide shoe and it has always accomodated and been comfy. The Addiction 11 feels at least a size too small, and the toe box is much more narrow, resulting in squished toes and inability to wear these all day. By the evening, after some swelling, my feet are extremely uncomfortable. I will need to find another option until they make changes to this shoe.

I hate to have to spend $120.00 twice a year on shoes that I don't put that much mileage on. I just like the fit for walking and everyday use.

    Comments about Addiction 11:

    I have been wearing the Addictions for many years, I, too, have noticed a decline in quality. They are sized much smaller as in the past and do not have the cushioning or construction integrity of past Addictions. For example, the heel tab on one shoe has no inner foam to support it and thus collapses when I try and put on my shoe. Also, where is the cushioning of the past that made walking a pleasure?
    These were fabulous shoes and I hope Brooks wakes up and returns to the quality of earlier years.

    The worst ever!

    Comments about Addiction 11:

    Have been wearing these for many years, these are by far the worst fitting version ever. Ankle support and height to the ankle has been reduced. the back has no support and is difficult to put on as there is no firmness as with previous versions. Tongue is not attached as well and moves constantly to the side. Seems like they are scrimping on material and quality. What a shame they, were the most comfortable shoes until now!!

      Comments about Addiction 11:

      With pronation, I want support when walking, not just at the gym but also when shopping and traveling. Thus, I wanted "boring" color too. These are great. I do wonder if I should have gotten a wide size. The 8M seems a bit snug and lacing barely covers the tongue.
