Running shoes

Answered By Mick Grant & John Molvar

Question

What running shoe do you recommend for a 7-8 year old that loves to run? We do not want a spiked shoe for him yet but need something light with good traction and comfort. Thank you for any suggestions. Kevin

Answer

In general, I'd suggest something light and flexible and still has decent cushioning. You're not looking at a high mileage trainer, more of a "performance trainer". Definitely don't get a stiff shoe. Most running stores have staff who can evaluate one's stride and recommend the appropriate shoe.
