My favorite shoe, now it is also my son's fav!
on February 27, 2014
These must be the most comfortable tennis shoes out there. I tried it all, and once I found these, I never looked back. Then I decided to buy them from my junior and he loves them too. Buy them, you can't go wrong. The fit is great too (neither too small nor too large).
After a few months of wearing this, I noticed that my son's little toes were getting a little crooked as soon as he took the shoe off. Basically, the shoe is too narrow for his little feet, putting stress on his little toe, both left and right. The shoe was still the right size, quite comfortable otherwise, and just fine for an adult like myself, but for kids, this same shoe would be perfect only if it was a little wider. Kids have wider, different feet from adults, and this needs to be reflected in the shoe design for them.
We were looking for the right running/playing shoes for our son for weeks, and finally found it in the same place we found these ones: Reebok Realflex Transition Shoe (Little Kid/Big Kid) available right here on Amazon (or Reebok website). Those, unlike these ones, are quite a bit wider, and made of a more flexible material, putting no stress on my son's little toes. My son enjoys realflex so much that we ended up buying two pairs for him.
Reebok still rocks, just not in this model for kids; great for adults however, and great for kids in adult models. I still think reebok makes the most comfortable running shoes, as I tried them all, and none come even close (OK, Romika with their towel-like cotton interior and wonderful sole insert comes close, but those are not available in the US).
