Running is both a competition and a type of training for sports that have running or endurance components. As a sport, it is split into events divided by distance and sometimes includes permutations such as the obstacles in steeplechase and hurdles. Running races are contests to determine which of the competitors is able to run a certain distance in the shortest time. Today, competitive running events make up the core of the sport of athletics. Events are usually grouped into several classes, each requiring substantially different athletic strengths and involving different tactics, training methods, and types of competitors.

I bought these as hiking shoes for my 9 year old daughter before our trip to the Rockies, but she has been wearing them for everything - school, tennis, walks, playing, everything. They feel very light and flexible.

Across 2 girls I'm on my 4th pair of these and hope they keep making them. My girl with wide feet fits the wide and my other the regular and they both seem true to size and my girls reach for these for all casual wear. My older girl runs more seriously now and appreciates the cushion and support. They go through the wash and come out great. They also seem to "stretch" with them so I only have to buy the next full size.

New Balance K3090V2 not the right color

Reviewer: dm416 from Gloucester Twp, NJ
I purchased this sneaker because my son has a wide foot and his favorite color is red. When I received this product, it is not this shoe at all! it is grey and blue. Fortunately, my son loved them, and we kept them. These sneakers are extremely light and stylish. It is very hard when all your child sees are fancy, colorful, high end sneakers and he cannot wear them because of the width. These are definitely a step closer to that.

After trying several pairs and sizes of other brands, these shoes were the best because the were light, comfortable and seem true to size. My 4 year old had wide feet and these were great for her. The velcrow closure is also easy for her and comfortable.

I recently began running and was looking for a light shoe that would not restrict my foot. And I found it! They are light and are comfortable. They ran true to size for me I will definitely purchase another pair.
