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.

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Runner:

These are very comfortable! I wear these for work (I walk around a lot and have to watch out for spills) and my feet never ache, even after a long shift. However, they are not high quality shoes. They are super lightweight because the upper is just mesh which means they are SUPER breathable, but if you wear hot pink socks, you will see them underneath. I don't recommend wear these in the rain either. To repeat what another person said, the black part of the tip of the shoe started to turn white after about a month of wearing them.

Okay, not too supportive, loses bounce quickly

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Runner:

Fit: I find they run a little small. I usually fit into a 10 at Payless just fine, but for these I would have gotten a 10 1/2 if it had been available. Width is good--I take a wide, and these work for me. They look fine.

Initial comfort is good--they feel very cushy--but I wore a pair on vacation for a week straight and by the end of that time there was no bounce left in the soles, and I could feel the ground (and rocks, and sticks . . .) Not a ton of support on these. I did buy a second pair for knocking around the house, on sale, but I wouldn't wear these if I plan to be walking for long periods of time. The upper was comfortable right away and didn't need any breaking in.

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Runner:

I got the all-black in-store. I wanted something comfy to run around Europe in. I liked that they were lightweight, but that's because they are mesh (AKA not great for random rainy spring days in Germany). They remained comfortable, but became a bit worn out. They got me through three weeks, but now I need to go shopping for something else.

tl:dr; You get what you pay for.

These are the most comfortable shoes I have purchased. I love the wide toes and all the great colors I can choose from. They are so comfortable you don't even know you are wearing shoes.

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Runner:

I absolutely love these shoes! I previously had champion shoes, but after about three years of constant use (volleyball, running, walking), I needed new shoes. I'm soooooo glad we got these on sale.($19 is more than I normally like to spend on shoes, but it was worth it!) After baking all day and being on my feet literally all day, I decided to put on my shoes; my feet felt sooo much better within just a few minutes!!! The color(black and lime) was as I wanted, bright! You shouldn't get lost with those on! The size is as it should be and these shoes are very breathable(especially in the winter). The memory foam is amazing; this is my first time with memory foam shoes, so I'm really enjoying it! These shoes are absolutely amazing! Several of my friends have these same shoes and they love them! You won't regret buying these shoes! Only had them for about a month and a half, so we'll see how long they last, especially with volleyball season coming up!=)

Good for Morton's Neuroma sufferers

By

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Runner:

I needed a really wide toe box, not just wide in the ball of foot area.

This shoe has a really wide area for all my toes. They can spread out as needed. No rubbing. No constricting of my toes. I needed this for

my Morton's Neuroma in both feet.

I don't run at all. I wear them in the house, to walk around my neighborhood for exercise and I will wear them to school to teach. I find the insole very comfortable and soft as stated. The shoe is bendable and very breathable. If I were going to exercise in them, I might wear an orthotic for my arches. As a matter of fact, it would be a great shoe to wear in a pilates class if you need to wear a shoe. But as it is, it works for me and I will buy another pair soon.

I Highly Recommend This Shoe!

Comments about Champion Women's Gusto Runner:

I haven't purchased a sneaker in years, but I wanted to give myself a rest from all the high heels. I'm in love with this shoe! The first thing I noticed is how light weight it is (as in the past, I have found sneakers to be a little on the heavy side). The color options are fantastic. And the price...I mean, you can't beat the price. I'll definitely be purchasing a second pair. Such a great find!
