Nike running shoes for kids fuse comfort with fun designs.

According to research by Marcus Walter from the National Library of Medicine, a child's or teen's foot is distinct from adult feet as regards functional anatomy and ability to cope with pressure. As children develop, the connective tissue in their feet gains stability, hence the need for more cushioning and support as they perform sporting activities on hard indoor surfaces.

Bearing the foregoing in mind, Nike running shoes have been created for children and teenagers, to empower them to be more active and run for longer on multiple surfaces without tripping.
