Asics GT-1000 for Kids

Best Antipronation Running Shoes for Kids

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.


Asics GT-1000

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.
