5.0 out of 5 stars Great walking shoe; be careful about sizing, December 25, 2010

This review is from: Brooks Men's Addiction Walker Walking Shoes (Electronics)
(This is my husband's review.) I love these shoes. They're the best walking shoes I've ever had (though my old 1991 vintage ASICS Tiger Gel Strikers, no longer made, were close). I don't think too many people would be disappointed with these shoes. I am writing this review, though, to reinforce a point made by several other reviewers -- that the sizing tends to run a bit small on these shoes and when buying online it can be very important to know that and take it into account.

My normal shoe size seems to fall right in between 9 1/2 and 10. Since a shoe that is a little too small is no fun, I always buy size 10. Some 10's fit me perfectly, and with some I need to wear two pairs of socks. But normally a 10D fits me pretty well. I had read the reviews here before purchasing these Brooks Addiction walking shoes and therefore had a clue that I might need to order a wider size than normal. So instead of the 10D, I ordered the size 10 in the 2E width and I'm very glad I did. The 10 is on the small side, which fits me perfectly, and the 2E width is the equivalent of a D width in other shoes.

Since I was helped so much by the "heads up" on the sizing I got from other's reviews, I decided to add my own to reinforce the point and make it more likely that another potential buyer might get the hint before ordering. If you get the size right, I'll bet you'll like these great shoes!

The basic shoe size did not run small for me - slightly large if anything. But you're right on the width.
