I was getting ready to purchase the Addiction 10, when I saw this new version. Not expecting too much of a difference, I was pleasantly surprised,, The sole is more cushioned and supports the whole foot. There is a less pronounced arch, but it molds to your foot, Since I have peripheral neuropathy and therefore very sensitive feet, the extra cushion was worth the extra cost. Although I usually wear a medium, I was advised to get a wide at a shoe specialty shop. Glad I did, as I have plenty of wiggle room.

I've worn out several pairs of beloved Addiction 10s, and was hopeful that the Addiction 11 would be perfect for me, too, because Zappos did not have the 10s in stock in my size any longer. Alas, I had to send the Addiction 11s back. I wear orthotics which were no problem in the Addiction 10s, but in the Addiction 11s, my foot sat way too high in the shoe (problem 1) and just wearing them around the house to see how they felt produced that familiar twinge in my right knee that develops quickly when a shoe just isn't right for me (problem 2 and the deal-breaker). Whatever Brooks has done to the Addiction 11, I can't wear them, which makes me very sad. Loved the Addiction 10, and fortunately I was able to find 2 pairs on Amazon in my size. I may have to spring for a few more pairs to stock up on them.

I have worn Brooks Addiction shoes for several years and have found them to be the best sneaker to wear, without special orthotics, for my problem feet (heel spurs in both feet). I love the Addiction 10. Because they are no longer making those, I purchased these Addiction 11s. They are simply not the same fit as the 10s. I wear an 8.5 D (wide). The Addiction 11 is more narrow than the 10, particularly in the heel area. They are a good shoe and are otherwise comfortable (and, in my opinion, look more modern than the 10s), but the fit is not the same as the 10s, and unfortunately, aren't going to work for me.

I am an 81y old lady. This is a very comfortable walking shoe. With a pair of pink Superfeet insoles I am as comfortable as I can be. I walk as on cushions. What more can I ask. I can only recommend this shoe along with Zappos exceptional customer and shipping service.

I LOVE these shoes. I don't think Brooks can be beat, and this one is fantastic. Most hyperflexible overpronators do better with a motion control shoe and this one is superior. It lasts and lasts. You can't go wrong as long as you remember they run a bit short, so go up a whole size and possibly in a width for the best fit.

I have really messed up feet, one ankle that collapses in and the other rolls out, these have really helped. My only issue with them is the toe, nearly every pair I have goes out in the toe, wish they would reinforce it better.

Last year a shoe store fitted me with the Brooks Addiction 10. When they started to lose its support I got these from Zappos. Same excellent structure, great arch support, very comfortable. I am convinced that wearing these both to the gym and for walks has helped strengthen my legs and reduced my knee problems.

I love all but one thing about these shoes - the toe guard is misplaced and despite constant filing down of my big toe, it breaks through the mesh and I have to use fishing line or invisible thread to repair them and then they no longer look as good, but otherwise they are the best shoe I've ever owned.

Brands I'd also recommend: None - I love these and these only - just wish the toe guard were bigger and better placed!

I purchased these to exercise in on the tread mill because I over pronate and these had great reviews from Runners World Magazine. I absolutely love them!! They are cushioned just right, if you need extra arch support though, they let you down a little. I am concerned about the mesh construction, it seems like it will fall apart around the toes, inferior construction. I have had them for 2 months now and really like them, should they fall apart I will write another review.

I love the shoe, but have an orthotic for extra arch. I tried on a neutral shoe, and there is a big difference. Much more arch support in this shoe. I'll get another pair soon. It's a good fit.

I bought this shoe and the Brooks Ariel 12 to see which felt the best. I like the fit of this one, but it doesn't have as much cushioning as Ariel. I have neuropathy and plantar facistitis so I want comfort. I'm definitely keeping the Ariel and haven't decided about this one, but probably will since it's good to have two kinds to switch out. Zappos service and policies are terrific!

Brooks Addiction 11 is very different from previous Addiction sneakers. The forefoot of this shoe is longer, narrower & more shallow. Previous versions had a more rounded & deeper toe box. I have been wearing Addiction sneakers for a long time. This is the first time I had to return them. I did find a Brooks sneaker which was more like the old Addictions. It is the Brooks Ariel.

They felt a more narrow than my current Brooks shoes and toes felt squished. Disappointed in the arch support. Thought it would provide more. The size seemed okay but the next half size up would have been too big.

Have worn the Addiction shoes for many years and I bought the women Brooks Addiction 11 and was surprised that they were very uncomfortable and caused a lot of foot pain. What happened to this shoe? It is narrower in the toe box than the other addiction shoes. I will have to send this pair back. Please go back and make the shoe like the Addiction 9 or 10!

In my opinion, the Brooks Addiction 9 was the best shoe ever made for long, narrow, flat, over pronating feet. The 10s were a good shoe but not as good as the 9s. Now comes the 11 - What's happened Brooks? Good fit, some cushioning but no support, and a price increase. After a month of trying additional insoles and various socks, nothing helps this shoe work. I now have an Achilles problem on my left heel that I didn't have before, and can't get rid of. Thought I had found my shoe, but it's back to the search. Thank the heavens for Zappos and quick, great service.

I so loved the Addiction 10 and was excited to try the latest model of this shoe. But I'm finding it to be short on my foot; a problem I never had with three pairs of the Addiction 10's. Very disappointed. Tried the Ariel and found it to be a perfect fit.
