Comments about Mens Brooks Addiction Walker Walking Shoe:

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

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.

Amazingly Comfortable Shoes!!

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.

Comments about Mens Brooks Addiction Walker Walking Shoe:

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.

    Comments about Mens Brooks Addiction Walker Walking Shoe:

    I had been walking in running shoes until I purchased these. They seem to provide better support, relieving some of the pain in my lower back. Since they are good looking, I have found I wear them most days all day long, not just when heading out for a walk.

    Comments about Mens Brooks Addiction Walker Walking Shoe:

    I have been using this as a work shoe for 3 weeks. So far, so good. I am on my feet all day at a hospital. Being a 62 year old with plantar fasciitis and tendonitis in the left arch, this shoe has by far produced the best results in terms of pain management and overall comfort. I am walking with a great spring in my step not experienced in years and hope that with additional TLC for my feet I will not have to worry about hobbling into retirement! Incidentally, I bought 3 pairs to make sure the shoes got the proper "rest" between use.

    Bought these for my husband it is his first pair of Brooks and he loves them. He says they are very comfortable as he stands on cement all day for work. My only concern with them is that the rubber part of the end of the shoe is starting to come unglued.

      Comments about Mens Brooks Addiction Walker Walking Shoe:

      Love the comfort these shoes give my feet. I am 64 years young with feet that played sports for a lot of years. Also stood on cement floors at work for 40+ years. My pads on the bottom of my feet are a lot thinner then they used to be and these shoes help them a bunch.(Added a thin gell insert also) Bought them last May and started to go for walks 6 out of every 7 days.Worked my way up to walking 75 minutes per day. Started eating better, stretching before walking and taking a dietary Supplement twice a day.(FORSKOLIN). Have lost 33lbs. I owe a lot to these Brooks shoes, without them I would never have have kept up with the walking.I am purchasing two more pair right now. (one black and one brown). As Billy Crystal used to say: "I feel marvelous" !!!

        Comments about Mens Brooks Addiction Walker Walking Shoe:

        The Addiction Walker is my day in, day out, go-to comfortable, stable, supportive shoe, especially in wet cold PNW winters for the past 2+ years. The stable support and sole have been excellent for walking on hard surfaces (note; installed Superfeet blue insoles, as with all my foot gear). Fit is a teeny bit different than the summertime mesh version, but both work very well. Stitching and soles very durable. Water resistance enhanced with silicon waterproofer. Snow and ice traction poor. Improved this winter by adding diy cross hatch 1/8" deep siping to the soles (about 3/8" spacing between lines) with small sharp shop knife (keep the blade on the sole, avoid fingers!). Good design, good build. Happy customer here.

          Having bad knees, this is the only shoe I've found that I can stand on concrete and my knees won't be killing me after a shift. Can wear them with work clothes or with dress slacks. They look appropriated with either.
