Big and Wide Comfort out of the Box

Comments about Mens Brooks Addiction Walker Walking Shoe:

I have big and wide feet. Size 13 EEEE. Addiction is a walking shoe so I bought it for daily and office wear. After first day I didn't even think about the shoe one time. Very comfortable. Haven't worn on long walk yet. The brown suede look is classy. My wife loves it as it's the first tennis shoe type I've had in 4 years. I've received more positive comments on this shoe than any other. Probably will reorder.

Good foot support, comfortable and durable

By Older hiker

Comments about Mens Brooks Addiction Walker Walking Shoe:

Going on fourth year for current pair. Physical therapist recommended them and use of Smartfeet Blue insoles. These are the daily driver shoes for fall-spring-winter (wet side of Washington State). Aftermarket silicon waterproofing works well. The soles were worn smooth at the start of 2016 winter making for slippery traction on snow and ice. Added cross-hatch siping with shop knife on soles from toe to heel, lines about 1/4" apart, 1/8" deep; traction improved. About time to order a new pair. The old ones are finally starting to come apart.

      I am now a Brooks addict

      By John

      from undisclosed

      Comments about Mens Brooks Addiction Walker Walking Shoe:

      This is my 6th pair of the Men's Brooks Addiction Walker walking shoe. The 1st pair was purchased from RRS 1 year ago on 2/9/2017. I now have all 3 colors in 2 sizes (14 & 15), which are sized dependent upon the thickness of socks that vary with the seasons here in gloriously snow-free Phoenix, AZ. As a lifelong runner (since First Grade) who is recently retired but still joyously running, I hereby testify that the Walker is more comfortable, more cushioned, and more supportive than the several pairs of my currently favorite running shoe, New Balance 1210v2 Trail Runner. In fact, I would use the Brooks Walker for running my usual 6.5 trail miles except that I suspect that the Walker is not sufficiently breathable for running in warm/hot weather. However, they work most magnificently for running short distances (1 or 2 blocks per sprint) on pavement, which I do multiple times daily year-round when my run-happy dog takes me for her once-per-day walk-trot-sprint for about 1 hour in the neighborhood. I'm also impressed with the shoes' durability despite the fact that they are my everyday shoe with my only alternate footwear being running shoes (used only for running) or hiking boots (used only for hiking or yard work) or slippers. It is safe to say that I like the Brooks Walker very much despite the fact that I have flat feet from birth and have lately developed a noticeable pronation problem. I mitigate pronation with Spenco Total Support Thin Insoles in my running shoes & hiking boots, but they are not needed in the Brooks Walker, where I use the original Brooks insole. My only complaint is that the well cushioned tongue should be a little longer, as I have to pull it up way too tightly to ensure that the top laces do not slip down onto my socks. I expect that my next pair of running shoes will be Brooks, as it has been decades since I last tried Brooks running shoes.

      Comments about Mens Brooks Addiction Walker Walking Shoe:

      I am a woman, typically use a men's shoe for walking/running so I can get the double wide and fit in my orthotic. These shoes are very wide in the toe box and fit my orthotic nicely. Heel fits very well which is an added bonus for me in a men's shoe. Walked 6 miles last weekend felt wonderful

      I really like these shoes! In fact, I've been wearing them in place of my dress shoes any day that I'm not in a suit for a meeting. My feet and legs are much fresher at the end of the day. I will get another pair.

      Good support but not durable.

      By Kelly

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Mens Brooks Addiction Walker Walking Shoe:

      There is a long, thin piece that constitutes the bottom of the sole of the shoe; it is designed so as to curl up onto the front (toe) section of the shoe, where it is glued to that front section. After a few months of light use (1-2 times per week), this piece is already becoming unglued. I am disappointed because otherwise this seems to be a good shoe, with good support, but in my opinion the defect on this one feature outweighs everything else.

      Comments about Mens Brooks Addiction Walker Walking Shoe:

      Have been having foot problems. I went to Road Runner Sports under the recommendation of my podiatrist and was properly fitted. Come to find out I was a size 12 1/2, not the size 11 that I have been wearing for years. The Brooks shoes are amazingly comfortable, and my feet feel 100% better.

      Did not fit my stride style. Leather very thick an not as flexible as anticipated. Shoe would be too hot to walk in hot weather.
      Will be returning shoe for another model.

      At first I didn't like them. They are a bit stiff and reminded me of hiking boots, but after I changed out the insole for something with a bit more arch, I wear them now for my business casual wear.

        Comments about Mens Brooks Addiction Walker Walking Shoe:

        I'm extremely hard on shoes due to being overweight and finding a comfortable shoe is a major battle for me. I took a chance on the review I read and gave them a try. Felt awkward coming from the Brooks Ghost 8 due to shoe weight and type. But after they were broken in I don't want to ever take them off! My walking stride has picked up, ankle and foot pain has decreased and stability has increased. I also have spinal stenosis that causes sudden pains and muscle/balance loss in my feet and legs. These seem to help the situation due to the stability they provide. I came here to order a second set in white for summer wear and decided to post my review.
        My biggest fear is now that I have found a great shoe, Brooks will change it.
        If it matters, I'm a 54 yo. male

        Best walking shoe. No break in time. The shoes felt like they were molded to my feet. Bought 1/2 size larger. Bought an extra pair in black for work and white to walk in the neighborhood.
