Boys' Trekker Shoes
Perfect Durable Shoe for 9 Year Old Boy
I bought these in black/yellow for my 9 year old son. He LOVES them! He has trouble tying laces, so these shoes (along with the fact that they are comfortable & durable) made them quick favorites. He wore these all summer with shorts and easily cleaned them up to wear with jeans/khakis to church.
I bought the size 6 & they fit as expected. My son says they're very comfortable with and without socks
I highly recommend!

7 Year old loves these!
My son used these as his 'indoor' shoes at school. This is the second year in a row that we have bought these shoes. He loves them for their ease of getting on and off. I like them because they look smart, while serving the purpose of a running shoe for junior level phys. ed. class. If I had one complaint, it is that the heel upper gets quite crumpled and 'soft' from squishing into the shoe without the benefit of laces to open the shoe up nice and wide....but not enough of a deterrent to not buy them IMO.

Run faster, even at church...
My eight year-old son says, "These shoes make me run faster." My wife appreciates their versatility: good for play and church. I liked the price.

Very nice all-around shoes
These shoes are great! Love the elastic - so quick and easy in the mornings, and they stay on all day. The sole is very flexible and the bottoms have good traction. The only thing is that because the mesh is just mesh with no backing, all the dirt that gets kicked up on the playground ends up in the shoes and on the socks. But, then again, with my kids, dirt ends up in the shoes no matter what.
I actually bought two pairs for my son in two different sizes (one for now, one for later), but my daughter stole the larger pair and has been wearing them to school. She's pretty hard on her shoes, so it'll be interesting to see if my son will ever get to wear them. Knowing LE's quality, though, I wouldn't be surprised.

Quality is lacking....
My son wore these shoes for approximately 30 days before the stretchy cord fell apart. Would love more variety of Wide Widths too but am hesitant to purchase because it seems lately that the quality of L.E. products is lacking. The return policy is great however I would love to just buy something and have it last!!! Hey Lands End...if you're looking for a 'tester' for your boys products my son is available. He is all boy through and through...thus far he has gone through your iron knee pants like paper and the sneakers never stood a chance.

We soo wanted these to fit!
We bought this same shoe for our son's twin sister and she loves the easy slip on, yet secure sportiness. Our son has really high arches and he can't get his foot in the shoe without a lot of pulling and tugging. It is otherwise a really great value all-round shoe-perfect for school and general activities. I know if he had been able to get his foot in quickly, these would have been perfect. We returned them no problem at all. Lands End makes returns very easy.

Great Pair of Shoes!
I purchased two pairs of these shoes for my sons. My sons are extremely hard on shoes, but these look like they will hold up. I purchased the same shoes last year as well, and the soles this year are thicker and more durable, even though the other shoes held up just fine with lots of activity. There is a nice toe guard this year that the previous edition didn't have, so this is a great feature for active children. I love the colors, especially the blue and gray combination. I ordered the blue and red pair last year, which didn't look great with every outfit, but with the all blue option, it matches much better with all color clothing. If you like laceless shoes, this is also another plus.

I bought my son these shoes to replace a pair of skechers. He LOVED them... right out of the box. Every morning it's a battle to keep these shoes off him in lieu of one of the three pairs of sandals I got him for summer. He'd MUCH prefer to wear these... but I'm trying to save them for school. They strike me as cooler then the typical tennis shoe b/c of the mesh. My son likes to wear them barefoot, but they look fine with socks too (socks don't show through the mesh). I hope they LAST until school!

Perfect summer shoes
My son hates to wear socks and tennis in the summer. The Trekkers are a great alternative! They provide coverage to his toes while playing outside (riding bikes, scooters, climbing, etc.) and his feet don't get too hot. Just keep in mind when ordering that they do run a little big.
