Great KIds General Purpose Joggers

My 5 year old granddaughter has been wearing these everywhere for about 8 months. They are quite robust and she hasn't worn them out as yet. The Velcro tab instead of laces seems to work well and is easy for small children to use. The only real negative is the white colour as she gets them very dirty. Darker colours would be more practical.

Hi John,


Thanks for the review. These shoes are great value and quality as your review states. We also have these in a Blue colour and if they shoes get a little dirty i recommend popping them in the washing machine on a cold/quick wash.


Many Thanks

Size 1 Kids white shoes

I really like the colour and light weight but unfortunately in preschool for every day wearing this shows not a good choice as they become dirty so easily even with little dust and you can take out the dust from it . Other then that it’s good comfortable to walk and run .

What's zero drop?

The drop of a shoe is the difference in sole height between the forefoot and the heel. Scientific studies conducted by our research lab (the SportsLab) have shown that a zero drop allows for a more natural stride, similar to a barefoot running stride. This natural stride allows for better absorption of shock waves when running and strengthens kids' muscles and tendons in the long term.

What about the natural stride?

Athletics Easy is based on 3 criteria for a natural stride as similar as possible to barefoot running: - Zero drop, so that the middle of the foot lands before the heel - Lightweight for a more fluid stride - Flexibility for easier roll-through with the midfoot Result: The energy from ground contact is transmitted to the back leg muscles, which absorb the vibrations better.

A design chosen for kids... and based on parents' feedback.

For these shoes, our team focused on the needs of budding athletes and their parents' feedback: - The rubber pads at the front and back of the sole increase its grip - The Velcro strap allows kids to put on and take off their shoes themselves - The inner strap retains kids' feet effectively - Reinforcements in the front, back, and sides of the upper offer kids more support and protection

Our design team is proud to present...

... a beautiful, lightweight, and affordable shoe. Achieving this involved a team of 15 people, a lot of back-and-forth movement, consideration of your opinions, teamwork with SportsLab, lab tests followed by field tests, and the desire to offer an affordable shoe adapted to the natural stride of kids starting sports. The result: "Great shoes designed with bucketfuls of common sense that are fully suited to athletics."

Carole, product manager, and maxime, engineer at sportslab, talk about athletics easy and the natural stride

"We based ourselves on the assumption that the body is naturally well-built and has everything it needs for running. The whole story of natural stride begins when a kid takes up sport. That's the reason we came up with these shoes." "The point is not to go against nature and learn how to run again: it's something that happens naturally. And when kids take up athletics, these shoes foster their natural movement and help them develop in the sport."

Did you know? the fit of kids' and adult shoes are not the same!

Kids' athletics shoes are specifically designed for kids' feet. A kid's foot is proportionally slimmer and less voluminous in the shoe than an adult's. Give growing young athletes space so they don't feel restricted when doing sport. If an adult chooses a shoe designed for kids, his foot movements are restricted, which has a direct impact on the body!

Product testing

Driss, our test engineer, tested these shoes on a group of 7 kids during a session in which they ran, threw, and jumped for 2 hours on a range of surfaces including grass, asphalt, and gym floor. They particularly appreciated the comfort and rubber anti-slip pad, as well as the ease with which they could put on the shoes themselves and the light weight for faster running. This test complements those carried out in the lab and allows us to validate our products.

Storage instructions

For more durability, we recommend leaving the shoes to dry outdoors.
