    My son absolutely loves these shoes! They are the perfect design and color for his style. They are lightweight and easy to run and play in. The mesh makes for easy airflow and so overheating is a nonissue. This model is exceptionally comfortable and my son wants to get more. I like them and I am glad he is happy. I will be getting more colors for him.

  • Cute shoes, durability to be determined

    Mamabear14 - May 27, 2023

    These are cute sneakers that I got for my son. They fit a little bigger than expected so we haven’t been able to test out the full durability. My kids are ROUGH on shoes, and these seem to be made about the same as other sneakers. Don’t seem to be be anything extraordinary about them. They are cute for little boys.

  • Sleek, Sturdy and Well Made, but Narrow

    Amaranta - May 25, 2023

    My seven-year-old son has flat, extremely wide feet and wears his shoes hard, which makes it difficult to find comfortable, durable sneakers. We got these sneakers in black. They're made of sturdy, breathable fabric, and lightweight. They're also beautifully designed -- simple, sleek, and can be worn on and off the playground. But they're rather difficult to get on his feet, especially with socks. Although they're definitely the right length, they're way too narrow for him. So we took off the socks and sent him to school. When he got home, the sides of his feet looked like they'd been compressed all day -- which they had. He couldn't take the sneakers off fast enough. I also have *very* wide feet and have figured out that I need to wear men's Nikes to accommodate them. In fact, I never wear women's models because the fit of the men's is perfect. I'm sure that these shoes in a wide width would be a total winner for him, because they're otherwise excellent.
