There’s a lot to consider when shopping for kids’ sneakers. Your child’s age, for one, as well as comfort — how shoes fit on their feet — and ease of wear, both for you and your little one. It’s no secret that kids can be very fidgety, and while putting on a pair of shoes may seem like a simple task for adults, it can feel like an entire process when your tot insists on doing it herself.
The New Balance 990v4 is a versatile shoe that can be used for a number of different activities. It’s moderately lightweight for a casual shoe at about 385 grams, but perhaps a bit on the heavy side for a running shoe. It’s made of a pigskin/suede material for that durable yet comfortable construction.
The midsole are made of ACTEVA LITE foam to add to its durability, and it comes with a 12mm heel-to-toe drop.
