    Comments about Kids ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Pre/Grade School Running Shoe:

    I bought these for my 13-year-old boy. He is a low-mileage runner (up to 20 miles per week the past two years). He has had no injuries in the past when wearing the Nimbus in women's shoes (feet still too small for a men's), but we thought we would try these in a more manly color. I noticed right away that he was making loud slapping sounds when he ran - his feet were almost silent in the women's Nimbus. After about a month he has shin splints. He's now wearing my Nimbus shoes until his arrive. He said the cushioning is not nearly as good in the kid's version. If your child needs them for PE or just wearing around they are great, but they aren't a running shoe for those that run mostly on concrete.
