My 10 year old son loves these shoes. They are fashionable and keep with the latest style, without being clunky or too childish in appearance. The durability has been fine thus far, but he's only worn them for just over a week so I can't give a full assessment. The only negative is regarding Reebok shoes in general. My son reliably wears a 3.5 US in other makers, yet we have to order a 2.5 US in Reebok. I prefer ordering shoes online and it makes me nervous always trying to guess how big Reebok will run.
