Prior to trying this shoe, I had never tried Brooks. Other brands left my heels raw and my toes cramped and blistered, so much so that I put off exercising at times because of the beating my feet were taking. When I got serious about walking and jogging again, my local run shop recommended the Addiction 10 for my feet. They told me that Brooks made the best motion control shoe, hands down - and yes, they did carry the full line of several brands. To be fair, these are NOT the best looking shoes in the world (I don't know why companies don't make motion control shoes in fun colors) but they are by far the most supportive, comfortable shoes I have ever had the pleasure of running or walking in. I have flat feet and am a severe overpronator but the Addiction handles all of that - I don't even think about my feet anymore when running. I even got my Dad to buy a pair in the men's version (I inherited his flat feet, go figure) and we are training for a 5K together. Thanks, Brooks!

I have flat feet and it was recommended by my doctor to use custom made arch supports to address my pronation issues. The doctor recommended I get stability control shoes as well. I went to my local running store and they put me in these. The sole is too chunky and stiff and I can barely run 2 miles before the orthotics start cutting into my feet. I never had that problem with the pair of Adrenaline GTS shoes I had prior to these. So I'm going back to what I know was comfortable and didn't hurt.

Incredibly happy with this shoe!

    This was my first time purchasing this shoe. My feet overpronate drastically, and these shoes really help with control. Within the first day of wearing them, I could tell what a difference they were making. They are a little bulky, but with the amount of support you get, it's a give and take scenario, and really it isn't all that bad. Haven't had any serious cons about these shoes yet!

      I have plantar fasciitis and super high arches. These shoes have allowed me to walk without pain! They are amazing and I am so glad they have a new design that isn't all white. I recommend these to Everyone!

        Several months ago a beautiful open space area was developed in my neighborhood with many trails. I decided to get back in shape by walking or running 4-6 miles per day. After the first month my feet ached horribly. I never had problems with foot pain. I could barely walk. I was wearing Puma's which are comfortable, but obviously not enough support. My niece, an avid runner, recommended Brooks. I rarely have any pain since I got by Brooks Addiction shoes. I'm very happy I didn't have to give up my daily, preferred exercise!

        I would like more conservative colors and fewer flashy bits. I do not see why the soles have so many little grooves. I have to pick the gravels out with a kitchen knife every time I come inside. And I would like laces that keep their white better.

          I live in my tennis shoes most of the time. I walk every day, I do a lot of shopping. These shoes are perfect for a busy person. However, I do not work out excessively or belong to a gym. I cannot vouch for how these shoes react to stressful situations. I love them for my lifestyle and I order them year after year.

            I work at a therapeutic horseriding facility. I spend about 9 hours a day walking in an indoor arena with a sand/rubber based footing. Prior to using the Brooks Addiction 10 shoe, my feet would get very achy after a few hours. For the last 2 years, I have used the Brooks Addiction 10 shoes and no longer have that problem. I also try to walk/run at least 4 miles about 4 days a week. I have walk/ran a half marathon also and these shoes gave me the needed support to endure without foot discomfort.
