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:

    I have some pretty serious foot problems. The Addiction has been the best shoe for me, giving me the support and comfort I need. This is the 2nd pair of Addictions I've had (got some Addiction 10s a couple years ago), and I love them. I can take them out of the box and wear them without any issues. Have also tried the Adrenaline, which are also comfortable, but really prefer the Addiction.

    Comments about Addiction 11:

    This is my third pair of Addictions, which I loved until this model because even the smallest width is way too wide! I don't know what they did, but my feet were swimming around to the point that I had to stop wearing them. I bought them at a place where they do custom fittings, so I went back and he tried everything to fix the issue (including having me try a couple of other pairs) but nothing worked. Brooks: Please fix this issue with the next release! These are great shoes but you need to have a width that is for average-width feet.

    Ruined the Addiction 10

      • Why Did You Change It

      Best Uses

        Comments about Addiction 11:

        The newest version of the Addiction - 11 - is awful. It feels like any other sneaker now. I liked the weight and support of the Addiction 10 better; it felt like I was wearing a ski boot. I went through 4 pairs of Addiction 10 - I loved that sneaker and would have worn it the rest of my life. I should have stockpiled them.

        I won't be buying the Addiction 11 again, or any Brooks sneaker. I'm done. I never liked the boring design anyway but I put up with it b/c of how great the Addiction 10 felt on my feet. Why did you change a good thing?

        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.
