Style #120032

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:

As a custodian, not only do I walk 6 to 10 miles a day but I also am walking in water and cleaning solutions all day long. These shoes hold up great. Good traction and the seams stay together. After several foot surgeries, my Dr recommended this shoe and I have worn nothing else AND they last twice as long as others I've tried. Defiantly a great shoe.

          I work 45 hours a week in retail management, so I'm on my feet for all of my daily 9-hour shift. These shoes are the reason I can do it day after day; they're supportive and comfortable. Since my mother introduced me to these shoes 7 years ago, I've gone through 4 pairs - not because they wear out easily, but because I wear them all the time!

            I love these shoes! The only ones that work with my problem feet (long, narrow, fallen arches). I am on my feet at work all day and do a lot of walking as well. These shoes plus my orthotic keep me out of pain.

              10 years ago I developed plantar fasciitis. After seeing a podiatrist, insoles, steriod shot, etc these addiction walker shoes have been the ONLY relief I have found. I think I have bought 10 pairs by now. I wear no other tennis shoe now since these shoes support my foot and keep the pain from returning. So thankful to have found them and I hope they never change their design.

                  Comments about Addiction Walker:

                  I wore a 9 1/2 Mens for years (several pairs), but then they began to slip off my heel because the leather stretched, so I got an 11 1/2 Narrow woman's shoe which felt great for about 3 months until it started to stretch. I thought it was just an anomaly so I got another pair. It is beginning to do the same thing. I have a narrow heel; why can't shoes be made that way? I like the pronation support on Addictions but want a narrower heel, so the shoe does not always feel like it is about to fall off.
