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.

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.

          Just Rcvd V strap walker as exchange for recent purchase of lace up addiction walker. Lace ups not suited for an 83 year old with many mobility issues. Initial impressions that lace ups probably better support (if capable of put on/take off) V straps very convenient for use, wonder about durability of the strap itself. can it be repaired if necessary without visual degrade? Laces easy to replace. Both models have Xlnt quality, each has advantages dependent on user capability.

            Comments about Addiction Walker:

            I have worn Addiction Walkers for ten years, replacing them annually (I wear another brand of runners for gym workouts, so annual replacement is adequate).They are consistently comfortable and sturdy, so I know how they will fit right out of the box. Little break-in time is needed. Some users might find the arch support a bit high, but it is perfect for me.
            I know several persons who are on their feet often at work, including teachers, salespersons, and medical staff. The shoes are available in three colours (I prefer white) which makes this feasible.
            The Walkers appear wider than they are, which helps account for the remarkable stability they provide. However, this causes them to look less fashionable if one is trying to make a sartorial statement.
            One area of improvement might be a deeper tread, as mine are worn down considerably by the time I replace them. Perhaps I'm harder on them than I think.
            Bravo to Brooks for consistently producing an excellent performance shoe and for avoiding the temptation to change them just for the sake of change!

                  Comments about Addiction Walker:

                  Use strictly for walking, never for chores/workshop. Really hard to find choice-of-width, and especially wide (in the "E"s), so Brooks is a welcome find, again. My Orthopedist recommended them years go, and Brooks models are now on the "shoe list" at a major hospital in Seattle, which I was told to use for reference. Looks really good, can be worn for formal occasions. Wish there were choose of colors and type of leather, however. Walkers are also welcome, since i will never run or even jog again. Will use cross-trainers when am allowed to go back to the gym.
