Additional Information

The name is no coincidence: runners just can't get enough of the tried and true support in the Addiction 11. We maintained its generous DNA-ified ride for cushioning and support that adapts to your needs, and added more in-shoe comfort like a better sockliner and an asymmetrical upper with suede overlays. One run and you'll be hooked.

I'm a very heavy woman with feet that roll sharply outward who was having severe foot pain from walking; particularly from walking the dog.

Multiple x-rays later I learned from the podiatrist that what I thought was a compression fracture was a LACK OF SUPPORT!

The doctor provided me a list of options for shoe models and sent me to a running shop where they watched me walk. We found Brooks to be the best fit and best control. They didn't have wide women's Addictions so I went with the men's, which were not so pretty, but from day one my feet stopped hurting. It was as if a little shoe angel had come and blessed my feet! I would not take them off until I found the all-white walking model (which I'm wearing now) and tried the women's, which fit very well also.

Sooooo... this is my fourth pair and I do find the Addiction 11 the slightest bit tighter across the widest part of my foot, but they are still the best shoes I've ever owned.

They're cute enough, but not terribly feminine and certainly not acceptable for anything but the most casual situations. And they do not keep water out, which is a negative here in the Great Northwest. I find them best for indoors, pavement walking, and using the exercise bike.

I would most like to see some color variety, particularly more feminine colors. A nice purple/lavender or hot pink/pale pink with a light grey would be adorable.

Either way, thank you Brooks, way to go - you saved my tootsies and I'll be forever grateful. I'd love to buy two pair to switch in and out, so roll out those color choices, please please please! I beg you. Really. Seriously. Please.

in the past, I have purchased Brooks Addiction because they had good support and a wide enough toe base for women with long toes. This redesign has narrowed the toes considerably, however, and now I can feel an ingrown toenail forming on both feet, and this is only the second time I've worn them. Why would you do this, Brooks? Do you hate women with toes? Do you think that your shoes must be "feminine", and that feminine means pointy toes? Let's take away the toe room on your own athletic shoes that you actually wear, and see how you like it. I guess I'll be looking elsewhere for athletic shoes from now on.

What is Brooks doing to their new models

By Sad Runner

from Columbus, OH

About Me Gym Rat

Pros

  • Good Arch Support
  • Lightweight
  • Pronation Control

Cons

  • Narrow / Tight
  • Poor Cushioning
  • Uncomfortable

Best Uses

  • Gym
  • Trail Running

I have been purchasing the Addiction and Ariel for at least the last 10 years. Last year I purchesed the new Ariel and couldn't wear them because they changed the cushioning or something and my feet killed me every time I ran in them. So I bought the new Addition and had no issues. This year I bought the Addition and ran in to the same problem I had with the Ariel. I have no idea what they are changing, but my feet felt like I was running on nails by my first mile (I normally run at least 3 easily). I instantly returned these shoes too. I am trying hard to find another motion control shoe to purchase that works with my feet since I have only ever used Brooks before.

    Have been wearing Brooks Addiction for years. Felt they were too heavy for me lately (I had switched to the Ghost) but I saw that they looked different so I ordered a pair...The 11 is a HUGE improvement in my opinion. My new favorite shoe!

        Amazing shoes

          I started up running again and have been through 4 pairs of shoes, each claiming to be fabulous and this and that. I finally ended up at our local runner's shop and tried these one, I should have went there in the first place. I am a moderate over pronater so these are PERFECT! They offer amazing support and I don't get the shin splints that I had been getting with all of the other shoes. They just feel super sturdy and are very comfortable. I would definitely recommend them and will be buying Brooks in the future!
