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 very high arches and my feet roll to the outside with every step. I own 3 pairs of these sneakers and wear them every day... at work, home, walking, to the gym, biking to/from work. I can be on my feet all day. If I wear anything else, I am in pain and fatigued after an hour. I can wear these for hours right out of the box. I replace them every 4-6 months.

    Since my other pairs stretched out with use, I went down a half size this time. They are perfect... except the laces on this size are too short (ladies 9 wide). I have to tie a single knot - that's all I have length to do!

    Love these shoes, but they can be slippery in wet and icy conditions - they won't stay on my bike pedals when they are wet, and they don't grip well on rain/ice. But this has not been a problem; I wear something else those days.

    Thanks for a great shoe. They have honestly made a huge difference in my life. Highly, highly recommend.

    Comments about Addiction Walker:

    I love the support the Addiction Walker gives me. But why, oh why, do these shoes have to be so unattractive. I would say the same for the running shoes. I will wear these to work, but not to work out. I feel like an older person wearing orthopedic shoes. Overpronators should be offered colorful attractive, supportive shoes, too!

          This shoe seemed comfortable, with good support, when I put it on. When I walked on the treadmill in it I found it too heavy and stiff. I am returning it.
          It is a good shoe but I prefer a light weight shoe.

            These are the only shoes I wear to work. Buy a pair once a year. This year is the fifth year I have bought them. Good support for my back. Love the shoes. This is the first year I bought them online. Ordered 1/2 size too small. Return process very easy.

              I wear these to work every day. I love that these come in different colors, because I used to have to wear white shoes at work, and now I have to wear black shoes at work, and they have both colors. They are comfortable to wear all day, as I am on my feet all day. Great shoes!
