Customer Reviews


My podiatrist told me to get these years ago and I've been wearing them ever since for everything but heavy hiking, biking, and swimming. They took some getting used to, since I was pronating, but now they are great. I call them my orthopedic shoes.
These shoes we bought for my wife. She has always complained that her shoes felt tight. We ordered Brooks and when we got them my wife put them right away. She wears them to work and says that they are wonderful. You will probably have a return customer. Thanks Shoebuy.
I have worn this model for years. I was fitted to correct pronation and to deal with bunions. The shoe allows me to walk for miles. I would otherwise not be able to with ordinary shoes. My only complaint is the rather clumsy looking sole. I realize it is necessary for comfort, so I live with it! I plan to wear this model forever!
I bought the Brooks Addiction Walker because of the fabulous reviews by people with hurting feet! I have a fallen arch that causes much pain without support and gets comforted from these sneaks. I love the simple, classic style. This was a great, comfortable pick! I only gave it 4 stars because I expected more shock cushioning. It's still a good buy. This is a recommendation from a hard to please woman!
I do like wearing these shoes, they are very comfortable and lightweight and the leather is soft. However, the one complaint I have is that the tongue of the shoes (especially the left one) keeps sliding down into the shoe below where the knot is tied. I believe this is due to how the tongue is sewn into the shoe.
I have been wearing these shoes for about 4 years, I usually buy them 2 pair at a time. I am a nurse and on my feet, and have quite a few health issues like weight, knee and hip replacement and diabetes. These shoes are comfortable, well cushioned, stable and look very professional as well, for part of a nursing uniform. Might not be "cutsie" for a younger,trendy girl, but even my son who is now also a nurse doing 12 hour shifts in the ED just bought his 1st pair (men's of course) and is also very happy with them. They hold up very and are a great quality shoe. Shoebuy is also great to deal with! Quick shipping, no problems.
