NIKE MAKES RUNNING SHOES RIGHT FOR KIDS
Each and every shoe is engineered to fit the needs of young runners' feet. Shoes are designed to accommodate how the foot moves while running. Cushioning protects against impact and adds comfort during runs.

WHY IS FIT IMPORTANT? Proper fit is crucial for running shoes. Every time a kid's foot hits the ground, it expands in width and length. Shoes must have room for this expansion, but not so much that they slide around when walking, running or moving. Running shoes should provide arch support while also adding cushion and stability.

WHY DOES FLEXIBILITY MATTER?
Adequate flexibility allows feet to move naturally and comfortably. Flexible shoes mirror the motion of barefoot feet. Nike running shoes are built with flexibility in mind to promote healthy development of strong feet.

FIVE TIPS FOR A GREAT FIT Finding the perfect fit can be challenging, especially with rapidly growing feet. Keep these five things in mind to find a fit that's just right.

Shop for running shoes at the end of the day, when feet are at their largest.

Foot size may vary, so measure both feet while standing. If one's larger, fit according to the bigger size.

Measure and determine fit while wearing running socks or the type of socks that will be worn with the shoes.

Allow for a half inch of wiggle room from the end of the longest toe to the end of the shoe. Toes should be able to move freely.

Heels should be snug. If they pull up and out of the shoe, blisters may occur. Walk around in the shoe and ask how it feels.
