Style #120032

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 have been wearing the "old style" Addiction Walker for some time now. I need to wear otrhotics in my shoes and over pronate badly. The "old style" was not very well padded and the tongue kept shifting to the side. However, they fit my orthotics well and their shape contours nicely to the shape of your foot. People who wear otrthotics already have a foot problem and many times is accompanied by chronic pain. Cushioning is an issue!! I recently went on a search to find a more cushioned shoe. I found some other brands were much more cushioned for around the same price. Funny thing.....neither one fit like the Brooks Addiction Walker. I needed shoes so I bought another pair of Addictions. It's the only shoe I can wear and I wear them 24/7. To my surprise changes had been made in the "new style!!" I love the cushioning and the new features so please leave this shoe alone now! Please keep in mind people with medical conditions truly need the cushioning. You have no idea what a gift COMFORT is for us.

With the recent style change, the material now used to line the tongue is slick and it slides to the side. I find myself constantly adjusting the tongue back to "center" it. I never had this issue with the old style. I wear these shoes daily to help alleviate a nerve problem in my foot, which requires a very sturdy shoe that does not flex. Aside from the tongue problem, it's a great shoe.

    I recently was fitted with custom inserts. In combination with the Brooks walking shoe I am walking with more ease than I have in many years. They give me good balance when lifting weights and are also good with step aerobics.

    The width is great, it doesn't hurt my bunion. The shoes are comfortable. I bought these because I have overpronation. The shoes did not support my foot well enough until I added orthotics. Now they are great!

      I am a 71 year old cashier and am on my feet all day long. I have now ordered my third pair of Women's Addiction since these are the best shoes I have found anywhere for standing for a long time. When not working I find myself doing loads of walking and the Addictions are always on my feet keeping me comfortable. I have found them to be long-lasting as compared to other walking shoes I had purchased and, of course, the most comfortable.

        Comments about Addiction Walker:

        I decided to buy these shoes for my mother after reading other customer reviews. They work great and she loves them! She has even started walking up and down her driveway because she no longer has hip pain! In the past she would avoid doing things because of the expected hip pain. Now she loves going places and walking around because she feels great in these shoes! She said there isnt a negative thing about them and she wouldnt change a thing. I highly recommend these shoes for people struggling with joint pain. They DO work and I am so grateful i bought them for her!

              I am now walking daily now that I am not hurting. I really believe these sneakers feel like wearing comfortable slippers. Also now that it is holding my foot properly it is helping me with all my aches and pains from my lower back to my feet. I am sold and getting on with strengthening my body. I feel these sneakers are the results of my feeling better. I have purchased a second pair and getting ready to order my third pair. My chiropractor had been recommending them to me for over a year. I am sorry I didn't listen to him sooner.

                    This is the fourth pair of these shoes that I have owned. When they get worn out I just purchase another pair without having to try them on since I know they fit. They are very comfortable, helped with my plantar fasciitis and I like that they are all white with no color at all on them.

                    My podiatrist told me that I needed to wear this shoe all the time. I remove the insole insert which comes with the shoe and slide in my custom-made orthotics. There is never any foot pain when I wear these. They are ugly as homemade sin, but I'll trade ugly for not hobbling around in pain any day of the week.
