I wore these shoes all around the house when I got them, and I NEVER wear shoes inside! These are my everyday shoes. Got them in black&white so they don't clash and look classy (as classy as a running shoe can get). Super light and comfortable.

Although this shoe is in Wide and I ordered wide, the sole of the shoe is wide, but the lace part is sewn so it can't be wide on top of the foot as well. I loosened the laces as much as possible, but the grey leather sides with the lace holes are sewn into the shoe very narrowly. You literally can't make the top lace part wide. It must be 1 inch at most wide (where I like it not to cut off circulation.) It is impossible to walk in these if you have wide feet at the bottom and at the top of the foot (I don't know anyone who wouldn't have such feet). I ordered the wide, the sole fits wide, but the top is for narrow feet. If you have wide feet and order these shoes be prepared to have bruises on the top of your feet from the laces and shoe not designed properly. Perhaps the manufacturer had the sole correct, but took the top from the narrow shoe bin and sewed on the wrong top?

The sole of the shoe is very hard slippery smooth plastic. This doesn't grip on any running/athletic surface, such as a hardwood floor, linoleum, cement, tile, or gym floor. It grips while on carpet only. If you bought these shoes to run in, you must run on carpet, not outside or in a gym.

The cushion is EXTREMELY HARD. It says it is memory foam, but it isn't. It isn't memory, nor foam. If you like barefoot walking on cement, then that is how much cushion it has.

I am extremely disappointed in Champion. I have bought athletic shoes from them for years, in the same exact size and nearly style, and never had such an uncomfortable, poorly designed shoe, and straight out lying about what the shoe is. (Wide size is not for wide, can't run on gym floors in running shoes, and memory foam is hard rubber.)

The shoe laces are too short to go through the last set of holes.

It only comes in grey and neon urine color for wide sizes.

Would never buy this type again. Why Champion, why?

Best shoes I've ever had

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Cut-Out Runner:

Best shoe ever!!! I'm not kidding. I'm so picky. I only wore a competitor for like 15 years.other shoes are so uncomfortable compared to these. They're lightweight, perfect fitting and even comfy without socks and my feet always stay cool. The memory foam sole doesn't wear out either. I have 3 colors of this shoe.

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Cut-Out Runner:

I have wide feet and I am normally between 6.5 and 7. I tried the White/grey one in store and none of the regular sizes fit me! Even though the front looked wide, the inner side of my right shoes always made my front right toe uncomfortable. I ended up trying 7.5 and they happened to be just right for both of my feet! Shoes are soft and comfortable, so they are good for walking, but I don't advise running in them because it is very easy for me to glide on the floor with these shoes in Payless.

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Cut-Out Runner:

I got the wide lime grey pair size 11. Unfortunately these shoes are not a true size 11. The fit was too snug and the construction very flimsy/cheap. Ultimately I decided to return the shoes. If you still want to buy these shoes go up at least half a size if available, If not go up a full size.

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Cut-Out Runner:

Bought these in black, and I'm completely IN LOVE. I bought a pair of Nike running shoes a few months back and I honestly like these better. So much lighter and more comfortable... Would 100% recommend.

extremely flimsy shoes

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Cut-Out Runner:

I bought these and honestly I wish I hadn't. These most certainly should not be under running. I only was able to use them once to run a 5k and they killed my feet so I gave them away. If you are a serious runner then you definitely not get these. Only use as lifestyle shoes.

Hope this helped you make a decision!

I got the turquoise/lime pair and I love them! They're really pretty and really comfortable. I'm loving that most of the sneakers seem to have memory foam insoles. They also pick really pretty colors to combine. Love that!
