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 rubber and a solid rubber compound for improved durability.
