Great for and I like the velcro straps, even the one that is half gone as my puppy thought it was a chew toy. The most comfortable walking shoe that I own.

Bought these for an 87 year old priest who is very active, preaching, traveling, and saying Mass. He used to trip and fall fairly frequently but he has fallen much less since wearing these shoes all the time. I plan to get another pair in white for summertime. These are just great.

The fit is much smaller on my feet than a brand I have bought before (Drew Force) 10½ 4W/4E. But Zappos does not have that brand in stock in my size as of this review. The Brooks brand may fit me if offered in a 5W/5E Size. But it is not available.

Brands I'd also recommend: Drew / Propet / New Balance

I bought these shoes along with three other pair on Zappos. I must admit these are the first pair of V-Strap shoes I have bought. I have been impressed, they fit well seem ot hold up well and my boots cover most of the V-Stap.

Great shoes. Perfect for travel since they are easy on/off for airlines, good for walking, and look sharp enough to wear to most places without having to bring a second pair.

Standard width D is too narrow and straps are too short. Exchanged for EE and problem solved. Zappos is excellent to deal with!

I bought these for my Father for Father's Day. He really likes them because he doesn't have to add extra arch support. He broke his feet several years ago after a fall out of a tree and now he has problems wearing many shoes. These feel good on his feet and have given him some relief. The roll bar is nice and gives the shoe more balance. He really likes the velcro closure, too. I am very glad I bought them.

I bought this shoe because the brand I wanted was out of stock. I am a teacher, and spend a good part of my day on my feet. I am also quite conservative and reluctant to try new things. Having to buy this shoe was a fortuitous event. I would have preferred more cushion in the insole, and a little more arch support, but overall I am pleased with them.

Very good walker. I wear a 134E shoe and have type 2 diabetes and the Brooks Addiction is one of the few shoes that is comfortable for my feet, plus the V-Strap allows me to adjust the shoe easily.

This was a purchase for a very close friend. He has trouble buying shoes that he can wear all day and not hurt his feet. I received a text the very next afternoon saying that the shoes are wonderful and are not hurting his feet.

Brands I'd also recommend: any other brand.

I bought these to make it easier to get through airport security, and also because my trip to Asia might have required lots of taking shoes on and off. I did tons of walking on my trip, and the shoes performed flawlessly. No need to even break them in. I did all sorts of pavement, and even walked up a steep portion of the Great Wall of China in these. These are great shoes.

Brands I'd also recommend: Nike

Like everyone else, I love these shoes. I have been swimming around in my old worn out Brooks, and also my fairly new New Balance, so I tried to get a 2E instead of my usual 4E. Nope. My feet hadn't shrunk; the NB were too big. The 2E were too small for me, but I just wore the 4E to a conference, on my feet about 14 hours a day, walking around town, standing in the exhibits area, etc. They are great; best my feet have felt in a year. Zappos of course were fabulous, as I had to return the first shoes and get the second. The only way they could improve their spectacular service would be to come over to my house and pick up returns.

Brands I'd also recommend: none; buy the Addiction

This is a great shoe. I am 70 and suffer from diabetes and have some balance problems, but I really enjoy walking. This shoe is comfortable, gives good support and helps with my stability. It is sized correctly and I would recommend it for anyone.

I am 75 years old and my son suggested I try these shoes. They are the most comfortable, best fitting shoes I have ever owned. I was having back stress when I would go for my daily walks, but that has been corrected I believe by these shoes. The Zappos company has gained a new lifelong customer because of the way they handled the sale.
