Hello Lokesh,

I am extremely sorry for the bad experience with Run support children's shoes. 

In order to help you out, I would request you to please share a couple of images with me, so that I can check the damage and then will guide you with the best possible solution. However, you can visit the nearest Decathlon store so that our running sales advisor can check the shoes physically and will do the needful. It’s important to us that our customers are more than satisfied and we would like the opportunity to resolve this issue immediately.
I'll stay available in case of any concerns. 

My kids love these shoes. Cheap, comfortable and last well. Always grow out of them before they wear out. Great for school PE and junior parkrun.

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 Rip-Tab 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.
