These shoes are for a very active 13 year-old. When he first wore them he commented on how comfortable and lightweight they are. And he even credited them for his recent increase in running speed! Not sure whether they can increase speed, but they are a great shoe.
Great workout and running shoe! Enough support on the soles for most terrain and flexible and lightweight enough for a great run or a standing high impact lift session. Can't honestly complain about them great show at an even greater price!!
