The Addiction sits between the Adrenaline and the Beast in terms of stability, even though its construction and ride is more similar to the Beast - the main difference being the use of DNA instead of SuperDNA.
The Brooks Addiction 12, one of the best shoes on the market this year. They utilize what we know the human foot and body interact with the ground.
This shoe is built for the moderate to severe overpronator, who requires a combination of reinforced stability and cushioning.
We have a really shock absorbing full-length BioMoGo midsole that'll give you excellent energy return with every single stride.
- The major update has been to the upper of the Brooks Addiction 12 wherein the overlays were moved around, pulling the saddle backward to provide a secure and snug fit around the midfoot. Additional overlays were also added on the lateral side for added support .
This Brooks running shoe has a standard running shoe length. The fit of this version is identical to its predecessor. The heel, midfoot and forefoot are of standard measurements. Those who experienced a good fit with the Addiction 11 will have the same experience on this updated version.
The outsole unit of the shoe uses the HPR Plus technology. It has 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.
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.
The Extended Progressive Diagonal Rollbar (PDRB), which is also seen in the Addiction 13, serves as the tri-density BioMoGo foam in the shoe’s midsole. It was extended from the heel to the forefoot in order to reduce overpronation.
It also utilizes the Caterpillar Crash Pad that efficiently flexes with the foot, offering a customized cushioning and improved stability for a more stable and smoother heel-to-toe transition.
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 internal support saddle purposely placed in the midfoot for a more secure fit.
