Shoe Type: Motion Control
Retail Price: $100.00
The Brooks Addiction 9 is one of the most pouplar motion control running shoes on the market to help support you low arched, overpronators out there. Even though the shoe has tons of stability and motion control features, you will find that cushioning wasn’t sacrificed.
The sole is pretty flat in the Brooks Addiction 9 to provide a wide base of support, along with a firm, supportive arch to help counter the tendency for overpronators to roll excessively inwards as a part of your running stride. The Brooks design feature that provides this support is the Extended Progressive Diagonal Rollbar (PDRB), which is a tri-density midsole to allow for advanced pronation control and smooth out the transition phase of your running stride. The extra cushioning comes from the Brooks HydroFlow, which is the layers of padding underneath the forefoot and rearfoot to enhance overall comfort.

Comparing to Brooks Beast
Brooks Beast is the other motion control running shoe in the Brooks lineup, and is a heavier, more supportive motion control shoe when compared to the Brooks Addiction 9. If you have previously found the Brooks Beast to be too much shoe because of its stiffness, or are looking for something lighter, the Brooks Addiction 9 would be a better choice while still providing you the motion control support you need.
