Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I would want to give these shoes 5 stars, however, I am afraid they won't last long. It is quite a challenge to buy nice looking wide width shoes, and these are great, my son loves them, but my complaint is that the soles are wearing out pretty fast (pls see the pics after less than 3 weeks of wear).The soles are made of some kind of foam although you would never guess, it looks like solid old-fashion rubber. I am planning to buy another pair in a bigger size because that particular size costs twice less than I paid for 5W and shoes that look this good do not come by very often in wide width. Update 10/22/16 My son still wears these shoes 6 months later, but I had to chance the laces, they do not slide well when you try to tighten them, they are not your regular laces, very flat and thin. Also something to have in mind: the shoes run small, I originally exchanged them for a 1/2 size up.
This style (Ride 8) Saucony worked out much better than the Saucony Kotaro. The Kotaro did not hold up well (less than a month) or support my son's foot. He is NOT complaining of pain when running with this shoe as he did the Kotaro. Only have them a week so we will see if the quality is better. The comfort is definitely better. Always appreciate wide widths being available. The colors are fun. The laces could be a bit longer.
We really wanted to love these shoes - the colors are bright and they look nice. However, less than 3 weeks of my son wearing them I had to replace the shoe laces because they were literally about to rip apart. And soon thereafter (less than 1 month of wearing them) the shoes fraying in various spots and appear to be falling apart. I ordered a "wide" size for my little man's wide feet, but these are ridiculously narrow still. Every single morning was a physical fight to get these darn things on his feet! So never again are we purchasing this brand for the kids. It's a shame too, because I wear this brand all the time for running and the adult version seems great. Avoid the kids saucony brand and save yourself the headaches and money!
