I've worn the Addiction Walker for years. The fit is perfect for my very wide and buniony feet, and I love the thick sole. Due to a series of foot disasters, I now have orthotic insoles, custom made to fit the shoe. I have to wear them all the time, from the moment I get up till I go to bed. Because of the insoles, I have to wear the Addiction Walker on all occasions, grubby or fancy. This made me gloomy sometimes, until I discovered shoe paints. I now have six gorgeously painted pairs, and a seventh waiting for inspiration.

I thought the shoe I bought was the same as I currently wear. When they did not work for me I checked the sole of my current shoe and compared it to the new shoe. They are different. I have to use orthotics in my shoes and only the one type of Brooks works for me.

I really wanted to love this walking shoe after reading all of the positive reviews. The extra wide felt like a wide, so the toebox was very comfortable. After wearing them, walking on rugs, I've decided they are too heavy for me. If you are a sales clerk or waitress I think these would be perfect since they are very supportive and have a thick sole. Sorry to say I'm returning them! I LOVE Zappos!!

This is a VERY sturdy and clunky walking shoe. I ordered wide, but either Brooks are making their sneakers more narrow, or my foot is getting wider or a little of both! Off to order extra wide! Thanks Zappos for your super customer service!

This is the second pair of Brooks Addiction Walker that I bought. Now I have one in white and one in black. They are super comfortable. After reading other reviews, I bought a half size larger that my New Balance shoes and they feel great.

I'd also recommend: New Balance

Thanks to the Brooks Addictive Walker, I am a walker again - after ten years of almost giving up. In May, I walked all over Europe, never feeling fatigue, pain or the stones. I felt stable - I climbed over rocks. I have neuropathy and arthritis in my very narrow feet. I say, It's the last and the structure of the Brooks Addictive Walker that makes it a good fit, not just the thick sole. Other shoes offer the illusion of comfort with thick soles, and do work for the more fortunate people, but are a waste of money for the tender difficult foot. Too bad they're so ugly, but I'm so comfortable that I no longer notice.

I'd also recommend: Only one, and not available in the USA, Panama Jack "Nilo" sandal.Haven't yet found a dress shoe.

A great walking shoe! After suffering with plantar fasciitis and bunions, I am extremely careful about what I put on my feet these days. These shoes have good arch support and foot cushioning, as well as a big toe box for comfort. These, like all Brooks shoes, run a half size small, so order the next size up. Also,wear them a few times to loosen their initial stiffness. They will mold around your feet and be excellent shoes!
