                      This shoe is great for gym use. Very lightweight. Don't think this shoe is stable enough to use outdoors.

                      My son received this product as a birthday gift six months ago. He wears them every day to school. the black rubber on the bottoms of the soles have started to rip off. Asics are warranteed for 2 years. These shoes broke down in less that 6 months. I will be returning them.
