5.0 out of 5 stars Great kid's athletic shoe..., July 1, 2012
This review is from: ASICS Kid's GEL-Galaxy 5 GS Running Shoe (Little Kid/Big Kid) (Apparel)
One thing I don't like to skimp on are shoes (and mattresses, don't skimp on mattresses either!). My son, and his ever-growing feet, needed a new pair of athletic type shoes. This is a nice basic running shoe--neutral in mechanics and well made. For sizing I go to the manufacturer's website to check, then I round up. Partly because he is growing, and partly because running shoes tend to need that.

In any case, these are well made, well designed and have a neutral mechanics (which I feel is important for growing kids...unless they already have an obvious mechanics issue I would not want to mess with them).

I also liked that the vendor was Amazon itself which means Prime/super saver shipping and the great customer service if needed. For things like running shoes this is not always the case and it is important to check the rules (and costs) associated with partner vendors. For this item I would keep an eye on that in case the default vendor changes (this is not part of the 'star' scoring...the 5 stars are all about the shoes).

Highly Recommended (for those who put shoes on their paws)
