$120.00

Style #110039

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 ordered the shoes using the sizing recommendation given to me by Brooks, which was based on the current pair of Brooks shoes I have. However, the width is too narrow. There were limited choices given to me when I ordered, so I went with the recommendation of the company.

            I work on concrete floors. I have searched for over two years for a good shoe to cushion the effects of concrete and give my foot support. I never found the correct shoe, and ended up with planter fasciitis. My foot doctor recommended this shoe. He then added orthotics. Even before the orthotics, I felt the difference in the shoe. I'm almost healed! Great shoe and good value.

            Great for use with orthotics and for over pronation.
            Great for casual use.
            Shoestrings too short for adequate lace up for a 4E width shoe.

              I've always been a big fan of the Brooks Beast, however I can wear the Addiction Walker for longer periods without the tightness across the top of my foot that I've experienced with the Beast. The Beast has more cushion; but I'm beginning to be a bigger fan of the Addiction.

                I have been a fan of Brooks since the early 1980s back when I was marathoning; and now that I am 76, I try to walk briskly for an hour each morning. The Brooks Beast Walker more than meet my needs. Super product. Appreciate the quality.
