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.

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.

Oh so comfortable but...

By 

from Bronx

Comments about Champion Boys' Gusto Runner:

So its winter time and my sons new winter boots felt uncomfortable so I temporarily put these on till I purchase a replacement. Mind you, Matt's getting up for school (and he's not much of a morning person) but as soon as he felt the comfort, his smile lit up his face and he said, "alright mommy, I love these shoes." Lol!
I would advise getting the light colored ones as the scrating and peeling of the detailing won't be so obvious as well as getting the Velcro strap as opposed to the laces because if ur kids a runner, the can rip a bit.

My son loves these. He has had his for a year and only wore out the rubber on the toe some. We are going this weekend to get a new pair, because he has outgrown them.

My Kids LOVE these shoes!

By 

from Texas

Comments about Champion Boys' Gusto Runner:

I have 3 kids, we buy all 3 kids expensive name brand tennis shoes from the mall; and all 3 kids always choose to wear these! My kids say they are very comfortable and they like that they can choose the different colors/patterns.

All 3 of my kids have had all the different colors/patterns at different times! Sometimes they like a color/pattern so much they choose the same one again!

Yes, I will admit that my kids wear these shoes out faster than their expensive name brand shoes- but they do get a few months (about 4-6 months) of wear out of them before they become "play shoes only" (because the mesh starts to fray or rip... Color has faded.. Etc)
I have even washed these shoes many times and they still held up!
I have 2 boys - who are hard on shoes, and a girl.... I think for the price they are a great buy!

I would much rather spend the $20-$30 on these tennis shoes every 4-6 months that my kids are comfortable in, and they love them; than spend $100 on name brand shoes!!!

My son loves them!

By 

from Battle Ground, WA

Comments about Champion Boys' Gusto Runner:

My 13 year old son got 2 pairs of new shoes at the beginning of the year.....one more expensive and a pair of these originally for cutting the lawn. He chooses to wear these because he says they are more comfortable! They have lasted without any rips or problems at all! He just got back from summer camp after wearing them all week and they are dirty but are still fine (more for cutting the grass now! lol) He loves them!

Love the look, but the shoe broke within one day.

By

Comments about Champion Boys' Gusto Runner:

I really, really loved the look of the shoe. My son said the shoe was comfortable. But with only one day of playing one of the holes where the laces go through broke and he can no longer wear them. The shoes are very lightweight. I wish they would have worked out but they didn't.

Nice look, poor quality.
