$120.00

Style #110039

Width availability maybe limited by color.

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 currently work in a profession where I am standing for 8 1/2 hours a day with a half-hour break for lunch so I need something that will be very comfortable for the duration. I searched for what others used for standing all day and read a lot of good reviews about rockports and ordered a pair of those. They were OK but not what I was looking for.

I wanted a pair of the Black Adrenaline GTS's but were out in my size so I decided to try the Addiction. From the moment I put them on I could tell they were much different than the others I have tried. They make my feet a little hotter than I had liked but almost every leather-upper shoe does.

The first day was a little rough because I thought it was a good idea to wear them for the whole day without breaking them in (BIG mistake) but after a couple days I was surprised that my feet/legs didn't hurt anymore. Not to mention they don't really look like running shoes but more as casual dress shoes that go great with my work clothes.

They also absorb a lot of the shock from walking in them all day as well. Not often, but sometimes in my old shoes after a hard morning workout I would have to come home and ice my shins because of the added shock from my old work shoes.

If your looking for a shoe that you can stand in for 8+ hours and still look great in profession clothes then I highly recommend the Brooks Addiction!

I have worn Addiction Walkers for several years because the sole design prevented me from rolling my ankles (outward) and spraining them. I recently ordered two new pairs and noticed that the design of the soles has changed and the new soles actually contribute to ankles rolling outward.

I would not recommend them to anyone with this type of ankle rolling issue.

After the disappearance of their preventive value, the quality of the shoe does not seem to me to be any better than average, although the width choice is a plus.

    Comments about Addiction Walker:

    I run in Brooks Beast shoes (my Beast size is 11.5 compared to a shoe size of 10.5) and I found these Addiction Walkers are a great fit at the same size as my Beasts. The support is excellent and they're very comfortable. I would highly recommend them. My only negative comment is the lack of a styling - they come in 'old men' white or black or a brown suede that has that sort of retired look. My kids said right away that they looked like grandpa shoes. How about it Brooks? A bit of red? Green? Maybe the logos could contrast?

          Comments about Addiction Walker:

          This is my fourth pair of Addiction Walkers. I had gotten away from them for a couple of years, choosing to buy less expensive shoes. Then I developed plantar fasciitis. Getting back in the Addiction Walkers has helped that condition to clear up. These shoes are a little more costly, but they will save you money on chiropractor visits, etc.

            I love this shoe because I can get the right size and width to fit my long, skinny feet. I fast walk several miles almost every day and they are comfortable and durable. I've been wearing this shoe or its predecessor for about 15 years and I'm happy. Thank you.

                I need a shoe that is all black for work and that I can walk in. These shoes are hard and feel like I have boards strapped to my feet. used them for a few weeks and it felt like they got even stiffer as the insole broke in or flattened out. They do seem to be durable. just not comfortable

                  Comments about Addiction Walker:

                  My first pair of brooks were the addiction 12 I got just a few weeks ago. I have been looking for a shoe since 2000 and have gone through many shoes in search of anything that would help my flat feet. My feet are SUPER flat, my ankles roll inward and pain throughout my body was something I thought I would just have to live with.
                  The orthodontics in the military made me step in clay and built a boot custom for my foot but it just didn't help much and I was still in pain; but now I found Brooks shoes! It's unreal, there no way to describe it. I CAN stand as long as I need to with ZERO pain, I have more energy and this seems to be some kind of a dream for me. I'm so thankful, believe it or not this is life changing for me. I'm 33 and I don't feel like sitting every chance I get because of pain. I feel happy and I feel my age or even younger now when I have my Brooks on.
                  My only problem…
                  I work for a bank and attire is set to business casual. I bought these for that reason but when I put them on with my business attire I look silly to the point where I don't wear them. Please I beg you to design a shoe for all of your customers who wear business attire to work.. We work at the banks, sales floors, offices, cash out counters; we are on every floor of every building downtown in whatever city you live, we are at the car dealerships and some are looking for jobs. The point is… we will be on our feet all day long without Brooks on. We just need one shoe in black and brown that does not resemble a sneaker, just one shoe in 2 different colors, that's it.
                  As a new brooks customer with major flat feet I can't be happier with my new shoes (like over the top happy). I would only like to extend my happiness into my 40 hour work week, so please help.

                    These are great shoes that fit a bit more snugly than regular addiction runners (a good thing, in my mind). They also feel more supportive.
                    But can't Brooks hire decent designers with good taste? If they just removed some of the unnecessary designs on the sole and made a dark brown leather version, the shoe wouldn't be so embarrassing to wear around.

                        Comments about Addiction Walker:

                        I've bought the Brooks Addiction walking shoes before, but the quality of the insole seems to have gotten worse. Checked the insole and there is hardly any cushioning in them, which is bad for a walking shoe. So two weeks into the purchase, I am buying some Spenco walking insoles to put in them. That's far too early to have to buy insoles.

                        The other issue is that the back heel area wears quickly where the cushion/fabric is. It wears through quickly, or did on previous pairs. We'll see how these do.
