Love these shoes. I am a teacher, on my feet most of the day. I wear them all day and when I get home, I walk my dog -- wearing the same shoes.

These were a purchase for my husband. He had to switch brands when New Balance discontinued his favorite model, the 1012. He is a bigger runner (6'4", 200+ pounds, size 15 feet) who runs marathons so, as he puts it, he needs "truck tires." Most running shoes just do not provide enough support for him. But, so far, these have been working out well. Be warned, these shoes are not exactly lightweight. There is a reason that they are called Beasts! But if you are a bigger guy looking for support when you are logging those long miles, give them a try.

I got these shoes to replace the Ariel 12 (which changed its design and now vexes me... but that is a different review). The Addiction 10 received good reviews so I thought I would try them. I have flat feet, pronate, and am prone to get plantar fasciitis. Based on other reviews I got a full size up to a 7½M which was a tiny bit roomy but fine. I was disappointed in the lack of arch support considering that they are supposed to be motion control shoes. There was not enough cushioning. The toes on my left foot went numb even though I did not have the laces too tight. My left ankle felt short bursts of pain when test driving on the treadmill. My right arch was painful after three minutes. They are well made shoe, but I will have to return them. The search for the perfect motion control shoes continues. Thank you, Zappos, for having a great return policy.
