Kids' running shoes Frequently Asked Questions

The most supportive shoes for kids to run in are cushioned without being too soft. EVA foam cushioning is a good choice for kids’ running shoes, and a little extra built into the inside of the foot adds stability. A rounded toe that curves up helps with pushing off. A rubber outsole is generally long-wearing and provides grip. A hook-and-loop closure helps make the fit just right. If your child’s foot rolls to the outside or inside when they run, they might need a stability shoe that’s designed to keep their feet in a neutral position.
Kids’ running shoes look the same as adults’, but they may have fewer technical details like extra-lightweight, adaptive foam midsoles or high-performance outsoles. Running shoes for young children and toddlers curve up at the toe, just like adult shoes that are made for pushing off with the toes. But they often have midsoles and outsoles that are designed to be multi-purpose rather than being intended only for running in. Running shoes for teens are often the same as the shoes made for adults, including technical midsoles and outsoles.
