Is Brooks Addiction 9 The Best Running Shoe For Me?

The minor complaint on the Addiction 9 was the shoe sized small. Addiction fans therefore recommend you buy ½ size larger to obtain the most comfortable fit in your shoe.
Runners searching for the best shoe for severe overpronators should also consider the Brooks Beast and Brooks Ariel.
Many times runners sacrifice lightness and mobility of the shoe for stability. In the case of the latest Addiction model, neither of these factors are lost. If you decide to go with the Addiction 9, there’s a great chance the shoe will solve all your running needs.
