At Run and Become we stock some great running shoes for kids. Our range includes road running shoes for neutral and overpronating feet, trail running, and spiked running shoes for athletics. If you're not sure what's suitable for your child, come into one of our stores for expert advice and a proper shoe fitting. Here's a selection of what we have to offer:
For children whose arches roll too far inwards when they run. This can lead to injury if not corrected. However, as they’re still growing we don’t want to put them in anything too rigid so the junior versions of adult pronation shoes tend to offer a milder support – more suitable for growing legs.
Gel cushioning absorbs the shock of running on hard surfaces and a Duomax support system keeps the foot in the right position. A breathable mesh upper for ventilation.
For the kids whose feet stay reasonably upright when running. Neutral shoes allow the feet to move in the way that’s natural to them.
Gel cushioned midsole with flex grooves for a super-smooth ride. Hard wearing abrasion resistant rubber outsole for durability and a breathable mesh upper.
Saucony's junior Ride ISO incorporates many design features of the adult shoe – ISOFIT fingers wrap the midfoot for a snug fit and a breathable mesh allows optimum ventilation. Compression moulded EVA with a super absorbent Powergrid heel insert shields the foot from impact when running on hard surfaces. A flexible, non marking rubber outsole makes the Ride ISO great for indoor and outdoor use.
For use on tartan or grass tracks for running, hurdling or jumping.
Designed especially for junior athletes. Six removable spikes in the spike plate give uncompromising traction on the track allowing your kid to run as fast as he or she can. Comes with a set of spikes and a spike key.
For running off road. These shoes have grippy outsoles to help reduce slipping in muddy conditions.
Good lugs offer traction on the trails and an EVA midsole takes care of the shock when running on firmer surfaces. Mesh uppers for breathability and a strong toe box to minimise bruising should you knock up against a root or stone. Non-marking outsole so can be used indoors as well.
Water resistant uppers help keep socks reasonably dry. Grippy outsoles for running over soft, muddy ground with mud-shedding lugs. EVA cushioning absorbs shock when the ground is harder. Non marking rubber on the outsole makes this a versatile trainer, also suitable for indoor use.
For the really muddy stuff: cross country running, orienteering and mountain running. 8mm studs and a sticky rubber outsole give excellent grip even when the ground is seriously mushy. A quick drying mesh upper for breathability and a responsive injected EVA midsole to absorb shock and propel you forwards.
Give your junior’s running career an early start with the best possible footwear.
