My son needed running shoes for track. It's middle school so they just wear regular sneakers and not cleat-style. Nowadays they need sneakers for school P.E., sneakers for indoor soccer, sneakers for outside school, cleats for other sports. It's never ending. I decided on these because of the price and my son loved the bright color of the orange. It's more of a neon which he loves. He normally wears a size 10 men's but we went up a half size to 10.5 as one should for running shoes. My son has been wearing them for running a few miles a week for practice plus track meets on weekends for the past 3 weeks and says they are amazingly comfortable which I was worried about given the low price. If payless continues with this I may never pay $140 for the name brand running sneakers for my kid whose feet are growing so fast. It has only been 3 weeks but the shoes still look brand new.

I'm a middle aged man that runs 2 miles every day religiously. I bought my first pair of Champion running shoes in 2010 after reading a Consumer Reports article that rated them highly & a good value. I replace them every year, I switched styles several times because they stopped making the kind I'd bought the year before, but was always happy with what I got. Not so this time, the padding is no where near good enough for a running shoe, as someone else wrote they feel like slippers. Maybe good enough for walking or wearing around the house, totally no good for running. I'm very disappointed.

Run Small

By 

from Indiana

Comments about Champion Men's Gusto Runner:

These shoes fit small, at least for my husband, who has always worn 9.5. These were tight. The 9.5 felt comfortable, though long, on me, and I usually wear size 8 in men's shoes. I know shoes vary in fit, but he usually finds 9.5 to fit right off the rack, and if you need to save a trip, you need to know if they are true to size. It doesn't show up in other comments, but these, at least the 9.5, are definitely smaller or narrower than a normal men's 9.5. We also found, that returning them to a Payless store for exchange results in no discount and therefore higher cost.

Incredibly comfortable straight out of the box

By 

from PA

Comments about Champion Men's Gusto Runner:

They're so soft and thin that I wonder how long they'll last BUT even if it's only 6mos as a regular everyday shoe it's a bargain. They are essentially unlike any other "athletic" shoe I've ever worn. (I don't think you could wear these for actual athletic activity but they LOOK like running shoes...) They're breathable mesh all over so it almost feels like going barefoot. And with memory-foam insoles. Great great product and dirt cheap.

I have wide feet and a rather irritating pump bump on my heel. Men's shoes fit me better. These shoes are so comfortable that i wear them to work.

comfortable and cool

By 

from california

Comments about Champion Men's Gusto Runner:

I wound not consider these running shoes. They are not real sturdy. They are comfortable for not heavy use and the fabric is thin that allows air to reach the feet. I like that they breath and they are soft on the feet. I have 2 pairs. the wide size is nice and roomy.
