Rated2out of5byAlbusDfromDid not last more than two months!Bought these from the outlet for around $20. Nice, lightweight and comfortable out of the box. I think they would be good if you restricted them to being used while running for boys- not really realistic. My 9-year-old wore them daily to school, and the material on the front started wearing out in less than 5 days! Even with two patches with Shoe-goo, I couldn't prevent him from wearing a huge hole in one of the shoe fronts in less than two months. Most other kids' shoe brands sold on REI I can get to last at least 5-6 months with my boy. So $20 may not be such a good deal afterall- maybe worth it for $5.

Rated5out of5byDomesticGluefromExcellent Running Shoes!My 9-year old daughter is an avid runner and these shoes have served her well since last summer and are still going strong. The quality is great and I suspect that her younger brother will be wearing this same pair next season as well.

Rated1out of5bysteffaniefromPoor QualityGot this shoe for my 5 year son. Got three different sizes; each shoe fits differently not true to its size. He wore it for not even 1 month and the rubber tip wore off,then the laces!!! Did not take it back because it looks like he wore it for 1 year!!! This is the second time I bought shoes in this brand; poor quality company!!! Will stay away from Hi-Tec brand period!
