Kids’ running shoes are made for the repetitive forward motion of running. They provide adequate traction, stability and cushion throughout a runner’s stride. You can help your young athlete move more effectively and comfortably with these tips:
- Many Nike kids’ shoes come with airy, breathable mesh uppers for a lightweight feel.
- Look for one-piece or no-sew uppers. They create a lighter shoe that minimizes discomfort from friction and irritation.
- Flexible grooves along the outsole allow for fluid movement and smooth heel-toe transition.
- Help them get the most mileage out of their running shoes. Outsoles fortified in high-wear areas are durable for frequent wear.
- Soft Phylon cores are lightweight yet improve cushion and comfort as you move.
