I have a history of shin splints and wear
orthotics. I needed a highly comfortable shoe for everyday
wear and work. This shoe is by far the most supportive and
cushioned shoe I have ever worn. It easily fits my orthotics
and still grips nicely for a snug fit. I highly recommend
After buying and returning endless shoes I finally found
true comfort for the first time in years from Brooks shoes.
I have a problem with my feet and have never been able to
find a shoe that provides me with the support that I needed.
A friend had recommended the Brooks Addiction line and it
was the best advice I'd ever been given on shoes. I also own
a pair of Brooks Addiction 9 which I wear on a daily basis
that I purchased from a running shop and have also been
thrilled with them. If you have flat feet, fallen arches and
pronation issues you can find relief in the Brooks Addiction
This is the second pair of this shoe that I have purchased.
So often on a repeat buy, I have found the quality has
changed. (Never for the better!) Not true with this one.
Having a long, narrow, foot, is often hard to find a good
fitting quality shoe. I do not hesitate to recommend this
I like these shoes for the color and for the stability the
soles give my feet. I bought them because I wanted bone
colored walkers and I wanted to try the brand. I am going on
vacation and wanted to have something different to wear with
khaki shorts. I am not disappointed in these shoes but will
probably stick with my New Balance walkers next time. I get
the same stability, etc. for a lot less. I normally wear a 7
1/2 B and these ran true to size for me.
Recently, I purchased a pair of Brooks Addiction Walkers,
and found them to be arch supportive, particularly for
over-pronators, such as myself, and just as comfortable as
Brooks Synergy Walkers, their predecessor. Given that, I do
find the toe box is too expansive for a AA(Narrow) width,
unlike Synergy, and make my skinny feet look big. Apart from
that, I can walk a mile in these shoes. I recommend them to
individuals that require arch support, functionality and
comfort from the onset.
