Additional Information

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:

    I have supinated feet and am on my feet for 12+ hours a night on hard flooring. With any other shoe I've ever tried, my feet and lower back are killing me by the end of the shift. The Brooks Addiction Walkers keep the pain and fatigue to a minimum--I will never purchase another style of work shoe!

      Comments about Addiction Walker:

      I wear these shoes every day with slacks--for aerobics, shopping, housework, visiting others. My full-length orthotics fit into them well. I have very flat feet and flexible arches. The shoe keeps my foot from sliding forward. The shoe's toe box is large enough to accommodate my hammer toes and full-length orthotics.

      The color beige works for all year wear. I wonder if Brooks would consider making a mary jane type shoe for dress wear.

        Comments about Addiction Walker:

        I have worn Brooks Walkers for years. However I have found in the past 2 years the quality has not been as reliable. I just received my current pair pair 2 weeks ago and the rubber toe cover on one of them is already starting to peel. I used to be able to easily get 6 months out of my shoes with my walking program and now about 4 months and my program hasn't changed.

        Also it would be nice if the suede option for men was available for women or something similar.

        I do still get benefit from the arch support, the pronation control and the overall comfort. They have been the only shoes I could wear comfortably during my acute bout of plantar fasciitis. Just wished the quality control was better.

        Comments about Addiction Walker:

        Wear these shoes all day and for exercise walking. I only change into (slightly) dressier shoes when I go out for shopping/restaurant, etc.

        These are the only shoes in the world that accomodate all the problems I have with my feet (fallen arches, bunions, hammertoe, etc.) so that I can walk 3 - 4 miles/day with my dogs on pavement or afield and do not suffer any consequences. They last me about 6 months. They can be slippery on wet / icy slick surfaces, but not that big of a problem
