My son loves these. We had Pumas before and they fell apart after 2 months. Brooks is a brand I will buy again.

I'm an adult with tiny feet. I'm also frugal. Did some research on the PureFlow line, both adult and youth. I took a chance and ordered these to save some money...so glad I did! They're great shoes. Not too much padding, but definitely not minimalist shoes. A nice in-between. I'm not a super serious runner - I'll run 5-10 miles a week or so, and these have been wonderful. I went with the green and they are awesome. Every time I look down at these shoes when I wear them, I feel like they were stained with the Hulk's radioactive reproductive DNA.

Awesome looking shoes! I'm not sure my 4 year old cares, but they are also light and seem to be good for running. Son wanted Hulk shoes and these were the coolest ones I saw by far! Also got my 6 year old girl the pink ones.

My son loves these shoes. I only regret not getting them a half size bigger so that he could grow with them. They look really cool and work well with his slender foot.

My son loves these shoes! They are holding up great on a kid who is non-stop running, jumping, and all over the place! His favorite color is red, so he got the bright red ones, and thinks they are best! Great shoe for my active guy!

These are a great pair of speed shoes. I have very weak ankles, so I would definitely not recommend these as trainers. I log about 50 miles a week in my Nike Lunarglides, and about 5 in these when we have speed workouts. They are a great alternative to spikes for me, but they would be great trainers for those with stronger bones. They are extremely light, and an overall great running shoe. (Awesome color too!)

My son loves these shoes. He loves the bright green color and says they are very comfortable. They seem to fit him well. I see some cosmetic wear on the toe after 3 weeks of wear, so we'll see how they hold up. Overall, very pleased with our purchase.

Great shoes! I use Brooks almost exclusively, having run numerous half marathons, 5K, 10K, etc. Have always found them to be an excellent running shoe. My kids loved the colors, and they are extremely lightweight (as a running shoe should be). Be aware, however, that they are quite narrow. I am returning them due to the difficulty my children have squeezing their feet into them. I have never had to order a "wide" for the kids prior to these, and hope that the shoe is available in a Wide. Otherwise, outstanding shoe!

These are the coolest green shoes I've seen in a long time! Bought them for my 7 year old who loves them. Note: They have an elastic strap across the foot, midway down, that was too tight for his medium width feet (never had this problem before). They don't come in a wide, so the Zappos rep. suggested a half size bigger to add some width...worked! Love Zappos reps! So nice, so helpful, so fast! Thanks!

Great shoes. My 9 year old son finds them to be very comfortable for school. The color is very bright, (I joke with him that they are visible from space!) but that's the current trend. He thinks they are the same color as the 'diamond' boots on Minecraft - so for him, these sneakers are perfect. Great customer service from Zappos too - they truly go over and above what I expected. These were bought as a replacement to a pair of Adidas sneakers I bought for school - after a week, a hole appeared in the toe. I emailed Zappos and they immediately credited me the cost of the Adidas sneakers. I will be a loyal customer of Zappos for years to come because they treated me so well.

My 10 year old daughter was fitted for these at a local athletic store for cross country and school wear. The lower heel in the back is supposedly better for building ankle strength in kids. She had an appointment with a pediatric podiatrist and the podiatrist and subsequent orthotics specialist both commented on what great shoes these were. My daughter says they are amazingly comfortable and she likes the red. I gave it 3 stars because a nice neutral color choice would be nice to go with her school uniforms. She, however, LOVES the red.

I am a mom and a podiatrist. So I get really particular w my kids shoes. Unfortunately most of the shoes he picks only has minimal arch support. You should be able to take the shoe in your hand it should not bend in the middle of the arch. Most shoes I have tried along the 50-70 $$ range for my 5 yo do bend. This shoe does as well. It also has a tight elastic band under the shoe laces, so it makes it really tight to put on. My son has a v narrow foot with some pronation and I ordered one size up and it was too small. He loves the bright green and although not super impressed w arch support we may end up buying in larger size as I can't seem to find a decent tennis shoe that he would actually wear to kinder...

These are great genuine running shoes. The foot is held snugly in place and there's plenty of support and no heel slippage. My daughter didn't care for the hot pink and went for these and she loves them now that we've got a pair that fits. HOWEVER, these are probably the most inaccurately sized shoes I have ever come across.. part of this is that although the width through the midfoot is standard, the toebox is pretty narrow. For comparison, my daughter's Adidas Sambas sized 10 were getting a little small but still wearable and the Pureflow 10.5s we got initially were actually a smaller shoe. We ended up with a size 11.5 which are a perfect fit - snug and with a little room in the toe. I would order up at least a full size.

Got 1/2 size larger than what he normally wears, still had to return for a larger size. I think these run small.

I have kids with narrow to normal feet... have never even thought about buying a wide shoe for them, but this shoe fit way too tight in the ball of the foot. It's too bad because otherwise, I love the style, support and how light-weight they are! One other comment: I ordered both a 2 and 2.5 to get the right fit, and they were both the exact same size. If your kids have super narrow feet, these shoes are for you!

My son loves the look of these shoes, but even after ordering a half size up, he cannot get them on his feet. We will try the next size up.

These shoes were not made well. There is a large seam protruding at the toe in the inside. Cannot be worn. Maybe we received a faulty pair.
