Product Reco: Brooks Men’s Addiction Walker V-Strap

Photo of Walking ShoesTo help with holiday shopping, I’ll share gift ideas for older adults over the next few weeks.  First on the list are Brooks Men’s Addiction Walker V-Strap shoes, which were originally recommended by my dad’s podiatrist.  My dad has worn this style of shoe for the past four years and loves them!

Why:

  • They look like traditional shoes except they have Velcro straps instead of shoelaces.
  • Velcro straps are easy to secure for older adults, especially those with arthritis.
  • Velcro straps mean no shoelaces to trip over.
  • They are made with slip resistant outer soles.
  • They are available in normal, wide and extra wide widths.
  • They come in black or white.

What To Note:

  • Many stores carry the lace up version of this shoe but can order the Velcro style.
  • We purchased these shoes at ArchRival Sports in Marin and they were great at finding the right fit.

Price: $120
