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:

I purchased these to do over pronation and PF on the outside of my foot. I can run in these without any pain. The cushion is great. They are slighlty heavier than regular running shoes, but I'd rather have the extra ounces than a painful foot.

    Comments about Addiction 11:

    Bought this shoe last spring at the start of our 5K training clinic. I was absolutely amazed at the way my feet felt right from the start! I could feel the air on my toes the minute I stepped out of the store. My steps were firm, level, a very stable stride! WOW!! By the end of the clinic, I shaved 6 minutes off my 5K fast-walk time!
    My only complaint is the color/styling. I think they are butt-ugly Frankenstein shoes. Why do shoe makers think heavy women with big flat feet want to wear ugly shoes. We are out on the track to feel better about ourselves. I want happy shoes on my happy feet!

    I use my Brooks for gym, walking and running plus just for wearing around the house. They are the ONLY type of runners I will buy and have tried other types in the past only to return them to the store and ask for an exchange to get these runners
