From infants to toddlers, and pre-schoolers to grade-schoolers, kids are always active. And like any young athletes, they need proper shoes. Aside from being smaller, young athletes' feet are very different than adult athletes' feet. Nike creates footwear specifically designed to fit young athletes and function properly for each of their various stages of development.

Nike product test analysts run an extensive wear-testing with young athletes to determine the fit and durability of their shoes. Each and every pair of Nike Young Athletes—including shoes based on the look of adult style—is engineered or re-engineered to meet the needs of smaller, developing feet. The result of all this science allows this innovative footwear to provide stability, breathability, cushioning, and most importantly, flexibility. Nike Young Athletes shoes are engineered to deliver more or less of any one of these benefits depending on the child's stage of growth.
