$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:

    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.

          Need to take much care about sizing. First I ordered a size too small. Ordered a size larger. That was too narrow so got wide and it worked well, very well. Brooks return policy rocks!!

              Love this shoe. In fact, I've been using it for well over a year. I finally went to a podiatrists to get some custom made supports and was surprised that this particular shoe was highly recommended (as was a few other Brooks shoes).
