I was going on a trip that required a lot of walking. As soon as I put them on, these felt like the most comfortable sneakers I ever owned. They are so light and you can feel the air going right through them so they keep your feet cool as well. They felt a little wider up front but for me, I can wear a 6 wide or 6.5 regular so the 6.5 worked great for me. One warning: mine came with super long black and white shoe laces and at the airport, my shoe lace got caught in the escalator and someone had to actually rip the shoe lace to get me out. So change to short laces or be careful!

I've just gotten into working out and I needed a new pair of sneakers. The black and yellow caught my eye right away and the price was awesome. They are light-weight, breathable, and the memory foam sole is fantastic!

However, after my first time wearing them, the rubber black toe started rubbing off and turning white. Now, after about a week of wearing them, the same rubber is starting to rip off the shoe. While it's certainly more of a cosmetic issue right now, I have a feeling these shoes won't last me more than a few months.

Naturally Wide

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Runner:

PRO: Shoes are naturally wide giving plenty of room for toes and are flexible in bending. Allowing for feet to stretch while walking, and exercising. Meshing keeps feet cooler and allows them to breath, making this a good shoe for hotter weather and athlete's foot.
CON: Outer sole is much larger than shoe in the back, looks funny from side view. Inner fabric throughout is very thin and wears holes fast.
Recommend for as a temporary (back up) shoe, also use with gel insoles because the shoes have a built in insole that wears fast causing craters. Also, fabric inside wears in certain areas as well.

A Little Too Flimsy

By 

from Illinois

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Runner:

I tried these on in the store and they fit well. After wearing them a few times, the memory foam is almost completely flattened and the shoes have stretched out and feel floppy.
I put my insert in, and they still lack support. My husband bought two of the men's pairs and wore them half a dozen times and blew out the toe area.
For the price, I was really disappointed. I wanted a more durable shoe. If you just use these for running short errands, then they are probably fine.

Not a good buy

By 

from Long Beach

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Runner:

Purchased my daughter these shoes for cheer. Did not last at all. Within two months they were trashed. It's better to go with the brands that are a little more expensive and are better quality and durable.

Lacks Gusto

By 

from Luling, La

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Runner:

I normally gravitate towards men's sizes (10.5) because a woman's size 12 is one of the most difficult sizes to find. I compared this to the rest of the Champion line carried at Payless and by far this style has the least amount of cushion. Get the product you need for the job you do and even with inserts this wouldn't be suitable for the amount of standing I do in a day. If you just want cute, affordable shoes these fit the bill

Love this shoe!

By 

from north carolina

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Runner:

Some reviews sound like people are just tough on shoes and I would never where this shoe in rain snow or flood....there not made for that. I teach and work in retail where I spent many hours on my feet and these shoes have stood up to my hours of wear. So comfortable that I don't feel stress in my feet and I'm able to perform my jobs in complete comfort. Good price and great comfort!

Light and comfy but don't last

By 

from Long Beach, CA

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Runner:

I love the look and comfort of these shoes but they are not well made. The right one makes a squeaking sound when I walk. And which started after just 2 days of wear. Also I can tell the black on the upper sole is rubbing off to the white underneath. (I have the black shoes w/ white soles). Disappointed with the quality- not worth the price they are charging.

Comfortable and durable

By 

from Palm Coast, FL

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Runner:

I bought 2 pair because they were on sale and I wanted some inexpensive shoes...I've had them for 3 years and they are still great!!!! They've been running, to the gym, hiking in the mountains, on a mission trip to Guatemala (where they hiked a volcano), and to the grocery store. I wear them everywhere because they are lightweight, comfortable, and durable.

Nice inexpensive weekend shoe

By 

from Detroit, MI

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Runner:

Usually don't purchase shoes from Payless but was shopping for school shoes. These looked so nice. They fit nicely and were light weight. Memory foam padding was exceptionally thin. There breathable mesh was not very durable. A good looking shoe for occasional wear. This was an inexpensive shoe and you get what you pay for. One could clearly see that this is not a Running Shoe. Unless you just wanna run into the parking lot.
