We were really hoping this shoe would fit but alas too small. My son tried 5s in other shoes and they are fine for him but these must run a little small because there was no way he could get them on. Christmas day disappointment but he moved on!

My daughter got a pair of these first in pink. Bought these for my son after seeing how she loved hers. They run a full size small in length but fit great once you have found your proper size. I also bought a pair of ladies very similar and it could be best feeling athletic shoe I have ever put on.

Bought this for my 11 son who suffers from osgood schlatter and needs good support for his knees. He normally wears Asics for this reason but I am a Brooks fan with feet issues. He absolutely loves these. Says they are feather light and so squishy when he walks. Happy knees and joints. I will be trying these once my Brooks Adrenaline die!

Great Shoe. My son loves these. Very light, hold up well and fit great. I would recommend paying bit extra for this better built shoe.

I ordered these for my 7 year old son. He loved them. When we got the 4.5 it was clearly too snug and tight. It is a light, flexible and very nice looking shoe but toooooo tight. I'm shipping it back and ordering a bigger size. It's hard to tell online and wish we could talk or chat with someone on the other end but I guess that's where free shipping is real handy.

Loved the way they felt when I was running, the mesh kept my feet nice and cool, and the heel support felt great. Socks didn't slip down, and I really enjoyed the way the arch support held my feet in the proper position. Great colors too. I am usually a 3.5 or 4 in youth shoes, and I was a 4.5 in these, without feeling like they were too big.

Great shoes but we had to replace the laces. The ones that the show comes with are too slippery and won't stay tied. White laces change the look a bit, but couldn't find any blue ones for kids.

I bought these shoes for my son to wear every day. After wearing them for just one day he told me they hurt his feet. His previous shoes always had great arch support. See these shoes are great for running. My son told me they did not bother him while he ran, but they did while he walked. My son has kept these shoes to wear for all his 5K runs.

Last year, my 8 year old son wore Brooks Adrenaline and loved everything about them (they accompanied his wide foot and seemed to help with pronation...no more pains!). This year, we decided to try this Pureflow2. I think it looks much nicer but we are having issues with the laces (different kind than what Adrenaline had). They won't stay tied and when he double knots, then he can't seem to get them untied in a timely manner for pe at school. Very frustrating. We have also noticed that his feet are turning inward in these when he walks and we never noticed that with Adrenaline. I am going to order a pair of Adrenalines and see if things get better. We love Brooks and yes, order a size up!

I got this for my 5 year old son thinking this would be a great pair of sneaker that will provide a lot of support for him. Love the style of the sneaker but the curve up front of the sneaker was rather uncomfortable for him than being more flat like most standard sneakers are was very uncomfortable for him and he walked funny in them and kept taking them off whenever he could. So disappointed these didn't work out for him as they re a great pair. Brooks sizing seems to run differently - I had to go a full size up.

I purchased these just yesterday for my son -- and he has all of a sudden started walking on the outside of his foot (supinate?). At any rate, he assures me he's not doing it on purpose -- that's what the shoe does. And, sure enough, even after less than 24 hours, I can see wear on the outside of the sole of both feet (and not comparable wear on the inside). I've never observed him to do this before, and I've never observed his shoes to wear in this pattern before this pair. I'd rate them as having very poor support. I will not allow him to wear them any longer.

My son had the Adrenaline shoe last year and it will be the shoe that all shoes will be compared to from now on. Sadly, they no longer make the type he had so we bought this shoe. It is made of thinner, lighter, cheaper feeling materials. The laces are too short. It also has caused my son blisters on the back of his feet due to the thinness of the "cushion" or lack thereof and also due to the stiff backing. I am going to try different socks to see if the spot where the blisters are can be cushioned from now on. I have to say I am extremely disappointed in this shoe, especially for the price. I could have bought a better, more supportive shoe for less than half the price from Wal-Mart.
