    Comments about Womens Brooks Addiction 9 Running Shoe:

    I've been wearing the Addiction since 2001 and have always loved it (except Addiction 8). The latest Addiction is much better than the Addiction 8, which had a tight toebox and caused consistent blisters for me. The latest Addiction seems to have fixed that problem. I overpronate a lot, wear orthodics, and run 25-35 miles per week.

          I got these at the recommendation of my chiropractor. They definitely help keep a more stable base which releases pressure on the other leg joints. They aren't quite as comfortable as my other Brooks though.

          Wonderful, proven shoe that helps the over pronator. I have flat feet and these keep my foot from rolling in. They are durable and comfortable. They are the only shoes that I can wear for long periods of time. They give you great support. The only downside is that they are a little on the heavy side. I would highly recommend for people who need a lot of support.

            I am a single leg below-knee amputee and I've tried lots of running shoes over the years. The ASICS Addiction 9 however is the most comfortable and durable shoe that I have ever worn. It provides good support, which is especially important to me when I speed walk for exercise. They are an excellent value for the money.

            I use these shoes to run on a treadmill or outside on pavement 4-5 times per week 3-4 miles per day. I am small framed with flat feet and these are the only sneakers that don't make my feet hurt. I take out the inserts they come with (they are cheap) and put custom orthotics in instead. I have been wearing Addictions for 5 years and will continue to do so. It is the only sneaker I can find that my heels won't slip out of. Be warned these sneakers are heavy--you wouldn't want to race in them, and they are unattractive. I wish Brooks would give them a better color and not the same blue year after year! They are also a more structured shoe in that they feel less cushioned than other brands motion control shoes, but that's something I like about them--they give a lot of support.

                The Brooks Addiction 9 is the main shoe for me that prevents pronation. The result, no back, knee or hip pain. When I do feel a pain in my knee that's the signal it is time for a new pair. I've been wearing this make shoe for years. One pair wears out, I buy a new pair. Not many of my friends can say they have no joint pain (at my age). I know it is largely due to the shoes I wear. LOVE my Brooks Addiction 9 shoes.

                  I purchsed my first BROOKS® ADDICTION™ 9 after I broke both my ankles: right one in car accident hit by a drunk driver, left one falling off a horse hitting a tree stump. This is the only shoe that I can wear that makes some of the pain go away allowing me to walk at work. I walk very little for exercise but I can walk comfortably in these shoes.

                  I supinate (feet roll out) and have lateral shin pain so I wanted to try a different shoe to see if it would help ease my leg pain. The shoes felt like they had great control but they were heavy and awkward feeling, very solid-like, like the white baby shoes used when babies started to walk. It felt like my feet hit the pavement differently, almost like slapping my feet down. It could just be that I wasn't used to something so different from my normal Brooks Trance (which I love) I ended up returning these and going back to the Trance.

                  I got these shoes 4 months ago when I started training for my 5th half marathon. I have moderate pronating feet so I need some good stability. I gave these a try and really liked them. My first pair are still in pretty good shape and I have reordered another for when my current pair wear out. Now I am ready to start training for my 6th half marathon!

                    I ran ten miles in this shoe right out of the box. I am training for a half marathon at the end of the month and the RRS specialist suggested this shoe after I told her all of my issues. I had ankle surgery a year and a half ago and I need the control. I have had several versions of the Brooks Ariel, but they seem so heavy to me. These shoes allowed me to run without any pain and were not nearly as heavy feeling as the Ariel. I hope I continue to like them as much as I did yesterday.

                      Great support. Occasionally, when new, friction at tongue causes discomfort at top of foot - ussually resolves after 'breaking in'

                        I always wear Brooks Dyad but wanted to try something different. Foolish perhaps but these are a refreshing change with a slightly different look. I'm not sure the toe box isn't too narrow for me (yet) but otherwise I really like these running shoes. These accommodate my orthotics easily.

                          I am currently training for my 5th half marathon and this is the first time I have run in anthing other than ASICS. I really like these shoes! They support my low arches, aren't too heavy and fit my foot well. The only complaint I have is they do feel a little small. I always order up a half size in shoes, but could have ordered up a full size.

                            A RRS Specialist suggested I try the Brooks Addiction years ago and I have become "addicted" to this shoe. Each year, I buy the new model and love them. I have run numerous marathons and half marathons with my flat feet and they are wonderful! Thanks RRS and Brooks!

                            I wear motion control sneakers for running marathons. Since the Brooks Ariel (best motion control out there) does not come in size 5.5, I wear the next best shoes, the addiction. I loved the addiction 8 but find the 9 less supportive. I'm not looking for a light shoe, I'm looking for motion control to keep running without injury. They're still a better choice than any other shoe. Too bad addiction 8 is no where to be found.

                            I am nearly flat-footed and over-pronate, and this is the ONLY shoe that allows me to be a "runner" injury-free. It has excellent stability and motion control, and isn't as heavy as some of the other, similarly-minded shoes out there. I highly recommend it.
