$120.00

Style #110039

Width availability maybe limited by color.

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 currently work in a profession where I am standing for 8 1/2 hours a day with a half-hour break for lunch so I need something that will be very comfortable for the duration. I searched for what others used for standing all day and read a lot of good reviews about rockports and ordered a pair of those. They were OK but not what I was looking for.

I wanted a pair of the Black Adrenaline GTS's but were out in my size so I decided to try the Addiction. From the moment I put them on I could tell they were much different than the others I have tried. They make my feet a little hotter than I had liked but almost every leather-upper shoe does.

The first day was a little rough because I thought it was a good idea to wear them for the whole day without breaking them in (BIG mistake) but after a couple days I was surprised that my feet/legs didn't hurt anymore. Not to mention they don't really look like running shoes but more as casual dress shoes that go great with my work clothes.

They also absorb a lot of the shock from walking in them all day as well. Not often, but sometimes in my old shoes after a hard morning workout I would have to come home and ice my shins because of the added shock from my old work shoes.

If your looking for a shoe that you can stand in for 8+ hours and still look great in profession clothes then I highly recommend the Brooks Addiction!

I have worn Addiction Walkers for several years because the sole design prevented me from rolling my ankles (outward) and spraining them. I recently ordered two new pairs and noticed that the design of the soles has changed and the new soles actually contribute to ankles rolling outward.

I would not recommend them to anyone with this type of ankle rolling issue.

After the disappearance of their preventive value, the quality of the shoe does not seem to me to be any better than average, although the width choice is a plus.

    Comments about Addiction Walker:

    I wear the shoes for work. I am a severe overpronator and Brooks Addiction and Brooks Beast were recommended by my doc. I use them with my orthotic inserts and Green Feet Insoles. Support and cushion are great. Able to walk distances without pain in ankle. I have bought about 10 pairs of various athletics shoes from Brooks so far, but this is the first time purchasing the Walker. Feel so great I'm getting another pair in black...but they're out in my size.

        I just need a good shoe that's comfortable. I can't run, just walk. This shoe fits my needs very well. I've bought the Addiction Walker for the past several years, this is the first time I got the Brown color, normally always had Black. The brown looks good for a change.

          I use these style for work. Comfortable with low arch support. Each time I buy them they are consistent.
          My foot being long and slim, they are a little wide.
          Ladies size 13 would work but don't make them that big.

            Comments about Addiction Walker:

            After years of running, partial knee replacement, and aging, I still pronate as badly as when I ran. These are my go to shoes for both everyday wear and a minimum of 14 miles of walking weekly. I also hike 4-6 miles once weekly in a different pair of shoes, boots actually. These shoes help control my pronation, accept orthotic inserts, and look good enough for public use in the casual college town I live in. I try to keep several pair on hand and rotate their use. I would have given them a 5 star rating instead of 4 due to my value perception. Yes, some of us are on fixed incomes.

            I use it for walking as exercise. I find that in the hot summer months, that the shoe does not breathe and that my feet get very hot and uncomfortable after my hour walk. I am ready to take the shoes off and let my feet cool down.
