POOR durability - Nike Air Max 2012 (GS) Boys Running Shoes 488122-006.
on April 23, 2013
We did not purchase this shoe from Amazon.com, but I want to share our experience with the shoes. My son (10 year old, who is not a runner) got the same pair as Xmas gift from a relative. He basically wore the shoes to school everyday. We are very disappointed that the shoes only lasted three months. I did a math, 1 hour X 90 days = 90 hours. That is FOUR days!! The air part of the shoes is very thin. As soon as a thin layer is wore off, the air would pop. Unlike the normal shoes which can continue to be used after a thin layer is wore down, Air Max is not wearable as sand/dirty would start getting into the bubble area and get trapped inside. We like Nike shoes very much and never expected Nike has such poor durability. It is a combination of design flaw and poor quality of the material used for the bottom of the shoes! It looks very pretty, though!
