The New Balance KJ860 is an excellent youth running shoe offering both support and cushioning. The medial post located on the inside of the shoe prevents over pronation and encourages a healthy gait. Abzorb cushioning in the heel and forefoot provide exceptional shock absorption whilst the rubber cup outsole provides long-wearing durability. The synthetic / mesh upper provides lightweight comfort and support. This kids' running shoe will have them ready to go whether they are off to school, the playground, a gym class, or the track.
