At Sportitude we have a huge collection of kids’ sports shoes and you can find the right ones to suit whatever sport they play in. Having the best shoes is key to support growing bodies and reduce injuries. We have shoes suitable for tennis, netball, basketball and running (including trail running). The shoes you buy your child should be fitted properly and aimed at helping them grow. Often kids will have a preference for the brand they wear, which can be a fashion choice or the style of footwear their favourite sports star uses.
Finding the shoes to support your child can be difficult, which is why buying shoes from an online retailer is easier than going from shop to shop looking for that right pair. We stock hundreds of kids’ sports shoes and finding the right ones is easy by using our search filters. With these, you can choose to only be shown sports shoes for a particular activity, size, brand, colour or price. Using the filters will limit what you are shown and this can reduce the hundreds of shoes we have available to only the few that suit your particular needs.
When you’re choosing your kids’ sports shoes remember that we also sell men’s running shoes, women’s running shoes and sports clothing. As we offer free shipping on orders over $100, it can be a good idea to bundle your purchases and save on postage costs. If you're concerned about getting the right size for your child, we also offer a 30-day returns policy on all our items. Please call us if you need to return an item and our customer service staff will be happy to talk to you about the process. You can choose shoes to fit the whole family from all the brands we sell including Asics, Brooks, Nike, Mizuno, New Balance and many others.
How to select kids' sports shoes?
The best way to choose your kids’ sports shoes is to know what sport they like to play. Then you’ll have a clear idea of the type of shoes you should buy, for example, if they mostly play sports that involve running, buying a pair of running shoes will be the best shoes for your child. For more specialist sports shoes like football boots or kids basketball shoes you can search for those and choose from the options available.
If you’re not sure of the size you need, you can take a look at the label of the shoes they’re currently wearing and ask your child if the shoes feel tight. If they are tight in the toe or heel area, it could be a good indicator that they need the next size up. To be sure you can measure their feet and add in the width of your thumb. This measurement will give them a shoe that fits, has room for swelling during play and allows for growth.
How to clean kids’ sports shoes?
You can clean your kids’ sports shoes relatively easily. All you need is a small brush, a bowl of warm water with some laundry detergent, a dry towel and some newspaper. You can start by giving the shoes a brush over to knock off any chunks of dirt, then use the brush with some water to clean more stubborn stains (don’t press too hard as it could damage the upper).
After you’ve satisfied with the clean, dry them with your towel, then scrunch up some newspaper and put it inside the shoes. Put the shoes in a warm part of the house to dry, avoid putting them outside in direct sunlight as this can warp the soles and cause staining. Keeping shoes clean and free from dirt can help in prolonging the life of the shoes.

How much do kids’ sports shoes cost?
All the kids’ sports shoes at Sportitude are picked because of their ability to help players develop and remain free from foot-related injuries. You can find a good quality pair of shoes for a reduced price, and these are suitable basic shoes that your child can use while they discover different sports. Once they are more involved and playing at a higher level, you may prefer a pair of shoes that have extra advantages over the basic design.
The cost of shoes directly relates to how long they last, and the cost of the materials used to make them. For newer models using the latest technology, you’ll be paying a premium price, however, if you’re looking for a discounted pair of quality shoes you can buy a pair from last season's collection. These shoes are still excellent and will perform well; they are simply reduced to make way for newer models.
