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 Women's Addiction V-Strap is 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 recently had a gastrocnemius recession operation to relieve plantar faciitis and disabling foot pain as well as an operation on one of my toes. After a short recovery period, to help get me back walking again, my doctor recommended wearing Brooks walking shoes along with a compression sock. I readily agreed since I'm very familiar with the brand. I've worn Brooks walking shoes in the past, and I love them. In fact, I've come to rely heavily on Brooks walkers to get me through the day when I have to be on my feet. I'm a professional home Stager, so being on my feet is a necessity.

This is now my second pair of Brooks V-Strap Walkers. I love the Velcro, which makes them easy to put them on and take them off.

I purchased my first pair of Brooks V-strap Walkers a couple or three years ago. They were white leather, and I've practically worn my them out. The rubber soles are coming unglued at the top of the shoe tip. I keep them as a standby and for working in the yard.

If I must say, this second pair took some getting used to. They felt a bit stiff and tight, but then again I'm still recovering from foot surgery last April. I did notice a slight variation between the first and second pair. The first pair, I was able to slide an orthotic insert inside of the shoe. I have not tried to insert my orthotic in my second pair. My foot is still too sensitive. However, I believe placing an insert inside would make the shoe too snug.

Overall, though, I'm very satisfied with my new Brooks walkers. They're well made. The leather is good quality. The soles are nice and thick and shock absorbent. I'm breaking them in now, because I'm taking them with me to London and Paris in a few days, where I plan to put many miles on them.

I bought the Addiction shoes and Adrenaline shoes at the same time. I ordered a size 9 rather than the 8 I take in all other shoes because I have an older pair of the Adrenaline, which I love. I based shoe size on that and also the information on the sizing that Brooks gives.
I really need a pair of shoes with velcro straps to wear in the house as I have Super Feet orthotics in all my shoes. The velcro on the top strap was way too short and left about 1 1/2 " of the velcro exposed which I could see getting full of dust, etc., anything that will catch & these are white shoes. The other huge negative is the tongue at the top by ankle is so thick that they hurt my ankle ...Bad design. I thought perhaps with all these same comments from previous consumers that the design may have been changed, but guess MFG is not listening! Too bad...

Comments about Addiction Walker V-Strap:

I ordered these in the color white, and on a person with a wide foot, they look like giant nurse shoes. Also the velcro strap is way too short, making it look silly. Do not recommend.

That said, I love brooksrunning shoes, and I purchased a different style.

A great product, but was not what the wife wanted in a shoe. We will return it and buy what she did the last time from Brookes.

    I was never a runner but I did walk and I need to return to walking after a long illness. I can't find a velcro closing that works for me. I'm disappointed.

        Comments about Addiction Walker V-Strap:

        I walk one to two miles every day. I have had 6 knee surgeries and have foot problems. I am 67 years old and I think these shoes will be a good solution that will allow me to walk on concrete sidewalks. Almost any good shoe works on blacktop, but concrete needs better foot support and the Brooks seem to do it. A bit of breaking in time, I am up to 1 1/2 miles a day after 10 days of use.
