Sizing down is necessary

The majority of the testers say the platforms are on the wide side. One tester with wide feet said the kicks fit them perfectly. “Just size down a half size as normal for Converse,” advised one sneakerhead. Check your shoe size with the Converse size chart for reference.

The soles are not just for show

The oversized soles of Run Star Motion CX Platform are bouncy and supportive, based on the reviews. “These shoes are very bouncy,” wrote one tester in their review. “They give a lot of support too,” they added. The sneakers have excellent support, noted another reviewer. 

Additionally, the height boost is enjoyed by many users. “They make me feel so powerful because of how tall they are!” exclaimed one sneaker fan. 

Takes a bit of time to get used to walking in them

If there’s an issue with the shoe, it’s the sole that could be a bit hard to walk in the first time. One tester said they were “swaying back and forth on them a lot” because of the rounded sole. According to another reviewer, it took them a second to walk in them because of the ridges on the sneaker. But it was fine once you got it under control, they added.
