This is at least my 12th pair of this model
and I hope they never stop making it. It is a very reliable
shoe, looks nice, holds up well, and is deep enough to fit a
custom orthotic. I also appreciate the price and convenience
of shoebuy.com.What else can I say about a basic white
sneaker? It is a utility player in my shoe wardrobe.
his shoe feels really good, which is rare for me. I have
naturally wide feet, and large bunions to boot. It's very
hard for me to find comfortable shoes, but these are great.
They actually seem a little wider than labeled, which is
great for me. Yes, I'd buy them again.
Brook's shoes were recommended to my daughter who needs
orthotics. She'd purchased one pair of Addiction Walkers and
was pleased with the fit. I was pleased to find them at
ShoeBuy.com and in a color that she might like, so I ordered
a pair as one of her holiday gifts. When she came home later
in the evening I showed her the web page. She did indeed
like the color, so I ordered a second pair for her to
alternate shoes. The customer service reps that I called
about the shoe orders were very courteous and helpful.
I bought these shoes because I have a bad pronation in my
left foot and I need to wear the ariels for best correction.
But as you can see the ariels are not the prettiest so I
ordered the addiction. They are comfortable and I would
recommend them except like all shoes now, they need eyelets
for the laces. They could also use a better insole.
I like the cushioning very much. I have walked in these
shoes for 2 hours at a time and my feet did not feel
fatigued. They are heavier than I imagined, more like a
heavy duty work shoe. They are stiffer than my Brooks
running shoes. Over all very positive. I do regret that I
did not return them for a half size larger.
After wearing now awhile, I really think this runs smaller
in length than some other brands I have. Either that or the
toe box is just smaller. I like these because they don't
slip off my heel, even when I wear my orthotics with them
without removing the insole. They are more soft and cushiony
than my other walking shoes and didn't require any breaking
in. I plan to buy in black also.
