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.

Comments about Addiction Walker:

This is my 2nd pair of addictions. The first pair lasted me 6 years. They just didn't wear out. And I wore them 5 days a week. If you wear them with a cushioned insert(like the ones SAS makes) they will feel better. The traction is okay on dry surfaces but not on marble or commercial kitchen floors. Very very slippery. They are true to size and worth the price. Scotchguard them and they will stand up to all kinds of punishment. They support my feet very well although they are a bit heavy. They blow "shoes for crews" out of the water. Compare them to SAS or Rockport. Also, Brooks offers a money back guarantee if you don't like the shoe AFTER wearing them. That's because the shoe is made so well that you will probably like it. The extra wide option is wonderful, thank you. These are the best shoes I've ever had.

    I have had surgery on both of my feet and my podiatrist says I have to wear this type of shoe at least 80% of the time. I was able to put them on and wear them with no break-in time. I love them!!!! I took out the bottom and put in my orthotics inserts and they wear and work just great!

    Comments about Addiction Walker:

    I am a nurse work long hours. I have over numerous years tried several different shoes for work. These shoes are amazing!! The pronation in the shoes has actually rid my left hip muscle of pain that I have suffered from for the past 2 years. These shoes are not very stylish however they work!! Don't ever stop making these!!!

      I have a bad foot where it proves to be very difficult to walk, these shoes provide the support I need, even when my foot hurts, where I can walk with no issues. These shoes are definitely my go to shoes and I can have relief while walking! They are just the best!

        Comments about Addiction Walker:

        As a custodian, not only do I walk 6 to 10 miles a day but I also am walking in water and cleaning solutions all day long. These shoes hold up great. Good traction and the seams stay together. After several foot surgeries, my Dr recommended this shoe and I have worn nothing else AND they last twice as long as others I've tried. Defiantly a great shoe.
