Like shoes. They are too narrow designed for tiny

Shoes could me more attractive. Good price. They are not wide enough. More support is needed. Orthotic insert is required.

Material doesnt last

Nice fitting shoes and have purchased quite a few pairs for my kids, but now fed up of how quickly the material frays and breaks. Won't be buying any more.

What's drop?

The drop of a shoe is the difference in sole height between the forefoot and the heel. The shorter the drop, the more natural the foot movement for running, reducing "biomechanical" action, which can cause injury. The drop of these Run Support Lace shoes has been reduced to 6 mm to respect little ones' natural stride!

Take a look under the sole?

The sole has flex grooves for easier heel-to-toe transition when doing sport. The hard-wearing rubber half-sole prevents young athletes from slipping on wet surfaces!

Did you know? kids' and adult shoes don't have the same fit.

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



Product testing

Driss, our test engineer, tests our products with kids aged 8 to 12 in a real athletics session. We gave particular focus to the water-repellent property of this shoe. The treatment on the material and laces halves the time taken for water to penetrate the shoe when running in wet grass.

Avoid leaving shoes in a damp bag.
