Best Running Shoes for Kids

Whether they need a pair of running shoes for back to school – or they are in a new term of little athletics, or perhaps they just love a bit of a sporty edge to their style; you’ll find that we have a great range of kids sneakers designed for running here at The Trybe. Perfect for pre-schoolers up to high school, check out our choices below.

Best Running shoes for Pre-school

For pre-schoolers we have a great choice of running shoes. Designed for the

littlest of active feet, you’ll fund runners from top brands like Nike, Asics and adidas.

The Nike Star Runner 4 will get them out of the door and off to school in a flash. A true versatile hero, these are a great option if they need a classroom to playground runner – and they’ll keep your little one comfy all day. Loops on the tongue and heel make it easy to open the shoe up wide so little star runners can step in and get going. Soft cushioning in the midsole provides a comfortable, springy return so 1 more round, lap and turn is always an option. The tread grabs at pavement, grass and gravel to give them extra grip while a rubber-wrapped toe toughens up the construction so they can go further in the same pair of Star Runners.

The Asics Gel-Quantum 180 IV merges pro running technologies with a modern look and even makes them functional for young feet. This shoe's upper is modified with a breathable reinforced mesh for all day comfort and breathability.

Best Running shoes for youth

Looking for a pair of running shoes for your high schooler? Although their feet are growing even faster than ever before, they still need a solid pair of runners under their feet.  We highly recommend either Asics or New Balance as options.

The Asics GT 1000 is designed to keep energised feet in motion. The midsole has supportive technology to increase stability as kids roll through their stride. E.V.A cushioning and GEL® technology create solid shock absorption with a softer feel underfoot. Designed with kids in mind,  these running shoes offer a more accommodating fit for growing feet. Lastly, this style includes a solid rubber outsole, as well as toe rubber to strengthen durability. We have a great range of colours and sizes – these are a great choice if your kids school requires specific colours of sports shoes – as there is a great all black option.

The New Balance Nitrel V5 – primarily a trail runner, this is a great option for cross country running or any outdoor track and field. There’s industry leading traction and engineered mesh upper so not only is it super comfy, its designed to take a battering from the elements (or heavy going PE lessons). Available in bright blue, these will surely stand out on the running track at the weekend.
