Good shoe for the money!
from Oklahoma City
Comments about Champion Kids' Gusto Runner:
I purchased these shoes for my son because they met dress code requirements. Now let's get real, they are not name brand, but for the money a great buy! Like most boys in grade school he's rough on shoes regardless of the brand. He's gone through more expensive shoes at the same rate as these Gusto Runners, and he LOVES them! So why spend upwards of $100 on shoes he's going to tear up in a couple of months when I can buy 4 pair for the same price to last the school year! Pop some multi-colored Hickie shoe laces in, and I'm done!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Ok. They aren't durable.
These were the ONLY shoes I could find to fit and conform to the school's dress code. After searching everywhere and multiple returns to online retailers, I felt like throwing a party in the aisle when we found these. Now the ones available in our local stores have a white sole, so we can't use them.They don't last well at all. The liner on the footbed lasted about a week and a half before starting to bunch up in the shoe. My kid has had problems with the bark on the school playground sticking into and even through the sole. We had to buy a second pair in roughly two months. Another two months and I'm buying a third pair. They are expensive and they don't last, but Payless has us hostage by providing an all black shoe that fits.The bottom line question asks if I would recommend the shoe. I have to answer yes because parents at school have wanted to know where to buy them. However, I warn them that they're expensive and don't last. I'm always on the lookout for a better alternative but I haven't seen it yet.
The material used for the show has a very cheap but I was not scared at all but it fell apart very easily I tried to take it back but they wouldn't return it because I didn't have a receipt even just after a week
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great Shoe for a Girl or a Boy
By Happy Mom
from Holiday Florida
I bought this shoe in black and white for my daughter and they lasted a for at least 6 months. My daughter is rough on everything so 6 months is excellent. Purchasing this shoe is a great idea. I am reordering another set.
from Chicago, IL
Bought these for my daughter (age 9). She wore them for both cheer practice and to school. She said they started off really comfy, but by the middle of the year the memory foam was completely flat and she said the shoes hurt her feet by the end of a school day. I would buy them again, but just for cheer, not for school.

Daughter LOVES them
My daughter is flat footed so comfort is a must, we were out looking for shoes before school started and we stopped in payless she picked these out cause they were solid white and that's what we were going for so they would match any outfit. I was a little concerned cause they felt thin to me and I was afraid they wouldn't last. I am happy to say they wash up very well and they are the best shoes, they truly last.

Fantastic show for kids who wear orthotics!!
from Philly, PA
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 6 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.
