Yes! We Carry Kids Running Shoes
We’re excited about these new kids running shoes from Altra. We’ve been waiting for years for a really good running shoe for youth, and we’re convinced your kids are going to love these. They’re called Altra Youth Kokiri and we’ve got a video to demonstrate how important it is for kids to have the right shoes for them.
4 Reasons to Bring Your Kids In to Try These Shoes
- GIVE THEIR FEET ROOM TO BREATHE – Kids are growing, and it happens fast! We highly recommend a shoe that’s shaped like their foot–like the Altra Youth Kokiri. It’s best to avoid any shoes that are narrow or canoe-shaped. Especially don’t cram a foot into a shoe that’s too small.
- LEVEL PLATFORM – We think this is important, especially for your growing kids’ feet. Having a zero drop shoe with a level platform promotes an effective running stride while building the appropriate muscles in the feet and calves.
- FLEXIBLE IS BEST – When it comes to kids running shoes, a more flexible shoe is ideal. Avoid a stiff shoe. Your kids feet are still developing, so a flexible running shoe allows for the growth and development taking place in your kids’ feet.
- REMOVABLE SOLE – So often kids outgrow their shoes before the shoe has been worn out. The Altra Youth Kokiri comes in full sizes and has a removable sole to help eliminate this problem. The shoe will last longer because the shoe has an extra sewn-in insole.
