I really like these sneakers. They look super cute, we haven't had any issues when them breaking, they have held up well. My son has had his current pair for 3 mos and they are still holding up nice. I have to say, if your child wears orthotics like mine does, this shoes is perfect. There is plenty of room for the orthotic and my sons says they are super comfy. The only complaint is the price. I think the price is to high for a kids shoe. I usually wait to buy them when there is a sale, especially a BOGO sale.

I had high hopes for this shoe, as I have the womens version, and love them. However, the kids version of this shoe is not made well, at all.
My son wore them to school, for only a week, and they started falling apart. The smooth material, around the toe (where it meets the mesh) completely separated from the shoe. Also the soft memory foam insole completely broke down, and is hard as a rock. After two weeks of wear, the sides of the shoes are separating from the sole. Into the garbage they go.

My boy loved the color and comfort but in less than 2 months the sneaker wore through the bottom.
Gaping hole and completely worn out sole.

Poor quality

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Champion Boys' Gusto Runner:

We've bought the same pair of shoes for our 5 and 7 year old boys (Size 2 and 3) and after about 4-weeks of use, the shoe lace holes have torn on each of their shoes, preventing the second from the top loops to be used.

Very disappointed in the quality of these shoes. Will not buy again.

Tricky!

By 

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Champion Boys' Gusto Runner:

So this is a little tricky. The colors you get to pick from are so different from one another that you really should be able to write a separate review.
We've had them in practically every color. My older one loves the camo, but those end up with holes in them within a month, so that one would really only get 1-2 stars. The gray-blue, the black-neon, black and plain white would get 4-5 stars as they are more durable. The other two 0-1 star because they do not breathe and stink after the 1st day.
My boys both love the comfort and fit of these so we do keep getting them as needed, but I really would like to be able to differentiate the reviews for each pair.
