Seemed nice, but wore out really fast

By 

from Draper, UT

Comments about SmartFit Boys' Magnet Runner:

I purchased these for my 6 yr. old at the beginning of the school year, as he had to have all black shoes. I didn't want him to have to wear dress shoes so I was happy to find these. They were a bit expensive for a sneaker, but I didn't have a lot of options. By the second or third week of school, the toes were completely scuffed off, but he has continued to wear them because he doesn't have any other shoes. Now by the end of the school year he has completely busted through the toe, and has worn holes in the soles. The Velcro stopped sticking a few months into it as well. He only wears his shoes to school, when he gets home he takes them off and wears boot outside to play. For only having two 15 min. recesses every day (on a completely rubber playground) you would think that they would have held up much better. I will not buy these again.

Happy boy happy mom

By 

from Kauai, Hi

Comments about SmartFit Boys' Magnet Runner:

My son has been wearing his shoes for the whole school year. Took him to all the shoe options we have here and insisted on getting the same ones! The school year starts in august, and I just had to buy him a new pair today. Being that he wears them everyday I'd say they lasted longer then expected:)

HORRIBLE!

By 

from Mesa, AZ

Comments about SmartFit Boys' Magnet Runner:

I have twin boys with wide feet. First, I would like to know why, Payless does not offer more Boy styles in Wide Width? C'mon, there must be a big market for toddler wide widths! Since there is no variety with wide width shoes, I bought 2 pair of these for my two yr old boys. With in a week, the black was scuffed off the toes of the shoes! They looked horrible. After about 3 weeks, I was too embarrassed to have them wear them out in public and used them around the house, only. They are too expensive for the cheap quality. There are another style of shoes I will be reviewing as well. Another pair that is expensive for the lack of quality. PAYLESS, you need to step up the quality, as your shoes are no longer a good buy. The prices have gone up and the quality has gone down.

Horrible shoes!

By 

from Tacoma, WA

Comments about SmartFit Boys' Magnet Runner:

My son got these shoes in Sept and on the first week the toes of them started rubbing off. They barely lasted to November, and in December I had to buy new shoes. They really need to make the front of the shoe better.

I wish they held up longer

By 

from FL

Comments about SmartFit Boys' Magnet Runner:

My 7 year old son has to have black shoes for school. While these fit him comfortably, they don't hold up well with the wear and tear of a playful 7 year old child. I have bought 2 pairs of theses so far, but I don't think I'll buy them again. The toe in the front wears out really quickly revealing the white underneath. I have bought other black shoes from here in a different style have they have lasted much longer.

Only sneaker my son can wear

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about SmartFit Boys' Magnet Runner:

My son has worn this brand/style of sneaker since he is 3 years old (he is now turning 6). In between I bought him one different brand pair which had to go right back - this is the only sneaker he doesn't complain about. So for him anyway, I have to say it is comfortable. We need a width wide so our options are always limited - thank goodness we have these. We did have an issue with one pair in the black - after about 1 month he said they hurt - it was the only blip we had and I never bought him a black pair again. We just bought him probably his 5th or 6th pair. They last a long time and we change pairs as his foot grows and not because they have fallen apart. They are reasonable priced for the wear we get from them.

Looks great but doesn't hold up

By 

from IL

Comments about SmartFit Boys' Magnet Runner:

I got these shoes for my son to go with his uniform dress code. They haven't even lasted 3 months into the school year. The Velcro straps are falling apart and the toes are starting to wear. Not impressed with the durability.

Great indoor gym shoe

By 

from Lafayette, IN

Comments about SmartFit Boys' Magnet Runner:

We needed a white soled bottom shoe for my son's kindergarten class to leave in his room for gym. These lasted the entire academic year while being worn twice a week indoors. For the price I paid, these served their purpose well, especially since he was not proficient at tying his own shoes and could easily operate this velcro solo. He brought them home this summer and wore them nearly every day because they were his most comfortable ones according to him. They've started to wear at the toe now, but we washed them before first grade started and are getting another month or two use from them before his feet outgrow. I'll be buying this kind again in the next size up because the price is right!
