I love these sneakers, my son is 1.5 and I know what everyone is talking about when they're saying the color rubs off on the toe area that has happened on my little guys shoes, the way he gets up after falls or sitting on the floor.

What I really like about these sneakers is that they are not narrow in the least, very roomy in the toe nice and wide for chubby feet. Also the mesh gives little feet good air flow, no strings to tie and they make little feet look so stream line lol not bulky like little they're walking on boxes. So far I bought the black and white, Blue and grey next will be the red on white and all white for summer's special occasions.

My son has ridiculously wide feet and they're large top to bottom which makes it very hard to find shoes that fit. I have tried and returned over 50 pairs and styles from multiple sellers and these are the only ones that fit him. I have now bought SEVEN pairs of these shoes because they last roughly 3 weeks. It's absurd. The velcro strap has separated on every single pair. I have to try to stitch it back together and it still just shreds. It's great that they fit but the fact that I have to budget to buy a new pair once a month is just stupid. Would it be that tough to make these a little stronger? Really?

Another low quality shoe

By 

from Mesa, AZ

Comments about Champion Boys' Gusto Lightweight Runner:

I have soon to be 3 yr old, twin boys with wide feet. IT IS VERY AGGRAVATING that there is such little selection of wide width shoes. I decided to give these shoes 3 stars because, my boys seem very comfortable in them, and they are light weight. I have bought this style 3 different times and the same problem has occurred each time. The Velcro straps separate. I happen to have a glue gun and fabric glue sticks, and was able to fix them, but I shouldn't have to! If I had not been able to fix them, I would've only given them 1 Star. Today, as I was fixing the current pair, I examined them to see why this happens. It appears that the rough part of the Velcro snags the stitching and breaks it. Thus, causing the strap to separate. The strap needs to go back to the drawing board and come up with a way to keep this from happening. I don't know about anyone else, but paying $22+ for a tiny pair of shoes is a lot of money. They should be of better quality, in my opinion.

Velcro problems

By 

from Lehigh Valley PA

Comments about Champion Boys' Gusto Lightweight Runner:

We loved these shoes at the store because they were so lightweight. Unfortunately, they don't hold up well at all. As with several other reviewers, the velcro came right off of the shoe. It's completely frayed so it really can't be fixed. Very disappointing since my son didn't get much use out of them.

Such a great choice for toddlers

By 

from Chicago, il

Comments about Champion Boys' Gusto Lightweight Runner:

This shoe is perfect for kids. Extremely light weight. Clean looking and stylish. I purchased really because it was their only shoe avail in wide width. My 1 yr old wears a 7.5w toddler. I purchased the black and yellow. I wish all the colors came in wide

Velcro Stinks

By 

from California

Comments about Champion Boys' Gusto Lightweight Runner:

Velcro on this shoe did not last at all. On one of the shoes the loop side of the Velcro came off the shoe completely (poor stitching) and it is so thin/worn there is nothing for the hook side of the Velcro to grab on to. Super disappointed as the shoes still look nice and we haven't been hard on them at all. Poor quality. With how fast kids grow out of shoes it is ridiculous for the Velcro to not last one season!

Great Shoe but slippery sole

By 

from Southern Ca

Comments about Champion Boys' Gusto Lightweight Runner:

I have the women's version in several colors & love them so I was happy to find them for my son. The fit it great & they have lasted him approximately 8mo, they are still in good condition but he is outgrowing them. I will say he does not wear them everyday but at least 2-3x per week & he is a very active 3yr old...my only compliant is the sole is very slippery in the beginning because the sole is smooth w/out a lot of traction.

So lightweight

Comments about Champion Boys' Gusto Lightweight Runner:

Cannot comment on sizing, durability or comfort as we purchased these for a family our organization adopted for Christmas but they were lightweight and adorable. We got them in back so the boys could wear them to church also.
