Built with a durable design to handle kids’ everyday activities that span from the school yard to the playground, the GT-1000™ GS (Grade School) shoe seeks inspiration from our performance running line.
Formed with a mesh upper construction, this shoe helps improve airflow to keep feet cool, while the removable sockliner is accented with a printed toe line so that kids and parents can check to confirm that the shoes are the right size. Following a more sustainable design approach, this shoe also uses fewer resources to color the sockliner.
The midsole unit is layered with a combination of EVA foam and GEL™ technology cushioning that delivers a more responsive stride and improved shock absorption. Additionally, the outsole is paired with a stitched toe and a solid rubber compound, while the medial wrap-up on the outsole targets higher wear areas to improve durability.
Foot TypeLow arches or flat feet
Push OffBig toe and second toe do majority of the work.
How your foot contacts the groundThe foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot.
