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.

Comfortable light shoe
Comments about Champion Men's Gusto Runner:
I have a very wide foot. it is hard to find a shoe that's not too tight on the side of my foot. This shoe fits well and it very light and comfortable. Wide size it actually wide. Haven't had them long enough to say if they are durable or not. So far so good. I walk 2 miles a day in them and they feel great.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I thought Payless would have cheap shoes!
I thought these shoes would be very bad but it turns out I was an idiot to listen to society about this company, I love these shoes and They are very comfortable and will buy them again!
Easy, Comfortable Fit

My son loves his shoes; they are used as uniform shoes (have to be all black) and he's happy that they are so comfortable!

Appropriate cost for the durability.
(1 of 1 customers found this review helpful)
I bought these shoes for teaching and they're absolutely perfect, especially for the price. These shoes are very comfortable and easy to wear all day, while walking 5 to 10 miles throughout my class periods. The inside of the shoe is breaking down some, but I've worn these constantly and they've easily been worth the small amount of money I paid for them. For the cost, this is one of the best pair of shoes I've come across.

A decent shoe but overpriced.
from Bossier City La.
I wear these almost daily for my normal activities and also for the gym. I have this pair for approximately 2 years, they are starting to look worn but still functional. I'm 67, a child would have worn them out in 6 months.
from Hollister CA
Good shoe for a good price , go to the store to try them on first they run small .
Perfect at first
from Elizabethtown, KY
I loved these shoes at first. Lightweight, very comfortable, good arch support. Less than two months has gone by, I wear them maybe 4 hours a week total. After removing my socks today I saw a black substance attached to my white socks. I felt inside the shoe only to find holes where my three smallest toes made holes in the lining. I thought I had found the best shoe until today. The holes were obviously getting bigger each time I wore the shoes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Lite as a feather!
from Topeka, KS
Have had these for about two years and about to buy some more in a different color. This is the lightest running shoe I have EVER experienced and has a good bang for your buck! So lite on your feet, they take some getting used to, but they are very comfortable with good air flow. The only two cons I can mention is the inner sole of the memory foam is starting to wear thin, but the rest of the shoe's integrity is holding up. I generally use these for sprint drills, jogging, and workouts, so they have more than earned their keep. Over time, some of the black is rubbing off around the toe of the shoe, but for the purposes I use them, that's superficial. Like I mentioned, about to get another pair and that says something about the product in my book!
