Walking is my exercise of choice. I have "foot issues"...such as pronation and sensitive fascia. I also have arthritis in my hands which made finding a walking shoe with stability and velcro straps (rather than shoelaces) important to me. I found the broadest selection of this particular style shoe at Zappos. The Brooks Addiction Walker V-Strap has the fit, comfort and support one could expect from one of the leading walking shoe manufacturers. It is well worth the price and I fully endorse this shoe for fit, comfort and quality. Because I had a question while viewing this shoe online, I called Zappos and was greeted with their customary good natured, efficient and helpful advice. I am so glad I followed Zappos advice regarding the width of this shoe as 67% of previous buyers felt the shoe ran narrower than the stated width. My foot is a bit wider than the B width I have had to accommodate in my dress shoes. Since Brooks offered this shoe in a Wide width, I decided to try it after speaking with the lovely sales associate and I am so glad I did! I'd previously purchased another shoe and had to return it for width reasons. As usual, Zappos expedited both the exchange and payment balancing with efficiency and utmost courtesy! Thank you once again, Zappos!

I had to send these back. They were so small that the Velcro would not even go halfway across and my toes were pushing up against the toe box. I am very disappointed as my last pair of the same size Addiction Walkers (lace up) were the best walking shoes ever and they fit perfectly well.

These shoes not only are super supportive of the foot, but the toe box is high enough that my toes do not get pushed down. There is plenty wiggle room.

Excellent shoes for serious walking or just running errands. This shoes keeps my pronation problem under control and I can walk all day without leg or foot pain. Also, the velcro straps are great for easy on\/off.

WW, Not Wide Enough - Unfortunately I will have to return this shoe. I was so excited to order it as the control of over-pronation was a big plus. Indeed, the balance and stability of the shoe is fantastic. However, the double wide is not wide enough for my super wide feet. It was comfortable at first, but then my smaller toes were squeezed too hard and with my delicate feet, I'm not willing to live with squeezed toes. Also, the top velcro strap is quite short, so I can foresee problems with lint sticking to the exposed rough part because the strap doesn't have enough reach. The insoles are great, in fact, if I were keeping the shoe, I don't know that I'd even have to use my orthotics in them because these seem tailor-made to help with pronation problems and provide excellent support. I'd trust these shoes not to skid in bad weather and to protect my feet. Another shoe that helps with pronation is New Balance, but those have toe boxes that are too short for me. They run too small and stiff and they are not deep enough to accommodate my orthotics. So far the only athletic shoe that has been long enough, wide enough, and deep enough for me is Saucony. I'm also going to try Pedors because neoprene is stretchy for my huge feet. Really wish these could have worked out because they are very good-looking for a young woman like me to wear.

I'd also recommend: Saucony, Maybe Pedors, David Tate, Eccos
