For flat-footed over-pronators like me - a great budget shoe

Gives me the support I need although the basic footbed seemed to have changed a few years back. Didnt like it at first as seemed very inflexible but them proved to be excellent for me. need to wear them in before they become a good shoe.
None that I can think of
A good basic shoe for over-pronators like me who don't do a huge distance. Im not sure it would suit those who do greater weekly distances as they dont last much longer than about 300- 400 miles on hard surface

BETTER THAN INITIAL IMPRESSION - SEE MY PREVIOUS REVIEW, WHICH I CAN'T UPDATE FOR SOME REASON.

After a bit more mileage the arch support is less intrusive and conveys less shock from the ground to my legs. This contrasts with previous models of this shoe which worked straight from the box. Now feels more or less like any of the previous Addiction models.
None - apart from the initial impression that nearly all cushioning has been removed from the shoes and replaced by a block of wood. Although this disappears after about 50 miles I could live without it.
Pretty much just another Brooks addiction once you get past the initial 50 miles. I.e. boringly reliable shoe. Just bought another pair from the sweatshop sale.

Been using Brooks Addiction since Addiction 4. Always the same quality shoe. Something's gone wrong this time

Not sure yet - more mileage required
This model has a harder material in the arch support than previous models. First impression is that I'm running with planks of wood attached to my feet.
I'll report back later, but I think Brooks might have spoiled a good shoe.

HIGH SUPPORT, VERY STABLE

High level of support makes this a very effective motion control shoe.
Only cushioned in the heel. A bit of forefoot cushioning would improve comfort.
A great shoe for those needing a higher level of support.
