My tween son can't wear out Nike sneakers or backpacks! The price initially was more than I wanted to spend, but the quality is outstanding, well worth the price. He has dragged his backpack through two years of middle school and the zippers, stitching, and straps are still in great shape, there are no signs of this thing quitting! He has a huge, wide foot (13 eee) and Nike delivers with sneakers that look good and last an entire school years and through summer without holes, separated soles or even replacement shoelaces! If I had chosen to spend a bit less on a different brand there is no doubt we would have had to replace sneakers and backpacks several times this year, but Nike delivered great quality.
