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.

An Excellent Shoe

By 

from Howell, MI

About Me Casual/ Recreational

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Cushions Impact
  • Durable
  • Good Arch Support

Cons

  • Poor Traction

Best Uses

    Comments about Addiction Walker:

    My mom recommended these shoes to me when I moved away for college - walking to and from class multiple times a day proved her recommendation right. I now wear these shoes in black for my job, which requires me to be on my feet for 9-10 hours a day. The support of these shoes is unmatched, in my opinion; the only thing I would change would be increased traction. I've been a Brooks Addiction Walker shoe wearer for 8 years and will continue to wear them everyday!

    I have always loved these shoes. The color bone, is more of a grey color, but still works. Shoes are very comfortable. This is my third pair over the years. Sizing is about one size small.

    Standing and walking for hours. The inner sole needs more cushioning, feels very hard after a while being in the shoe. Definitely needs to be skid and slip resistant.

      Comments about Addiction Walker:

      As I commented earlier, I like the shoe, but with my last few orders I've begged for longer laces. Seven sets of holes, wide gap, padded tongue—60 inches is not long enough and gives me a bow about one inch wide and no slack. I would be happy to pay extra for longer laces. I just bought 72-inch replacement laces that aren't the right color and don't work as well, but I can tie them. I tried requesting longer laces when I placed the order, but. . . .

        I have many pairs of this shoe in 9.5 B. Although properly marked, once I wore these shoes I realized they felt like they were a size too small and a size too narrow. I don't understand why the sizing changed. I sent the shoes back.

          I have to wear these shoes for my arthritis, and need the walking support!
          My only con is that these shoes need some color for those of us that want to look normal. They look like a style my grandmother would wear!

          Can you put some color on the leather, I would pay extra for a nice design, so when I go out in public, i would look normal, not like I have a health problem.
