Who should buy the Brooks Addiction 12
Favored by hard-core daily runners, the Brooks Addiction series is a solid option if:
- You have severe overpronation and you want a reliable motion control running shoe
- You look for a shoe that you can immediately wear for a 10K running session fresh out of the box
- You want comfortable shoes for all-day wear, walking, and jogging.
Updates to the Addiction 12
- Upper overlays were moved around, pulling the saddle backward to provide a secure and snug fit around the midfoot.
High-abrasion resistance capacity
The outsole unit of the shoe uses the HPR Plus technology. It has a high-abrasion resistance capacity, offering durable traction while running on the road.
This works efficiently with the shoe’s MC Pod Configuration, a pattern specifically designed for all Brook’s motion-control shoes for an efficient and more balanced heel-to-toe transition.
Brooks Addiction 12 full-length cushioning
The midsole of the Addiction 12 uses the BioMoGo full-length cushioning that delivers an efficient energy return. It adapts to every stride for a customized responsive ride.
It also utilizes the Caterpillar Crash Pad that efficiently flexes with the foot, offering customized cushioning and improved stability for a more stable and smoother heel-to-toe transition.
Lightweight mesh that is highly breathable
The upper uses a lightweight mesh that is highly breathable and has a moisture-wicking capacity to keep the foot cool and dry. The overlays are strategically placed for a snug and secure fit. It also has an internal support saddle purposely placed in the midfoot for a more secure fit.
