Our athlete-designers developed these running shoes for kids starting athletics at school or in a club in hot weather. Very ventilated and easy to slip on thanks to their quick-fastening system, these shoes are perfect in hot weather for all athletics activities: running, jumping, throwing, etc.
The drop of a shoe is the difference in sole height between the forefoot and the heel. The shorter the drop, the more natural the foot movement for running, reducing "biomechanical" action which can cause injury. The drop of these AT Breath shoes has been reduced to 6 mm to respect your little one's natural stride!
Your kid can tie his own laces.
We conducted several tests with mini athletes to make sure their first athletics shoes would be easy to put on. Thanks to the drawcord toggle, they feel supported and their shoes are easy to put on. There is also a little elastic band on the tongue of the shoe for the end of the laces. Ideal for running, jumping and throwing with no tripping!
Take a look under the sole?
The design of this athletics shoe features flex grooves in the sole for smoother heel-to-toe transition when doing sport. A rubber half-sole has been added to prevent your kid from slipping on wet surfaces.
Did you know? Kids and adult shoes don't have the same fit.
Junior athletics shoes are specifically designed for kids' feet. For the same size, a kid's foot is slimmer and less voluminous in the shoe compared with an adults. Give your young growing athletes space so they don't feel restricted when doing sport. If an adult chooses a shoe designed for kids, his foot movements are restricted, which has a direct impact on the body!
Driss, our engineer, tests all our products with about 10 young athletes for minimum 2-hour sessions of running, jumping and throwing. These field tests, together with our lab tests, are used to approve our products before putting them in our stores.
