    Default Ringor turf shoes?

    DD is about to start indoor practices on turf (and sometimes on a gym floor) and currently only has "'running shoes." Went to a few of the local sporting goods stores and basically all they had were volleyball shoes and generic cross training shoes. Was thinking about the Ringor turf shoe. Anyone's DD wear the Ringor turf shoe indoors? Is it safe for gym floors? Recommended? Also does Ringor run fairly true to size? is it a fairly narrow show (that would be disastrous for my DD)?? Never bought shoes on line before and i'm a bit hesitant.

    My DD got a pair for Christmas and likes them. She was wearing out a pair of tennis shoes every 6 months. Check the sale tab on the Ringor website for deals and make sure you get them with the pitching toe.

    I wear them. I can't really advise you about the gym floor question, but if she didn't wear them outside - maybe they would be returnable. I always order a full size bigger than normal in Ringor.

    Default Ringor

    DD loves hers and wears them on the concrete warehouse floor. She orders 1/2 size larger.

    DD has a pair that is four years old. She has pitched on every surface I can think of with them.No, they won't streak hardwood. I can't remember if we gave 60 or 80 dollars for them. They have been a bargain.

    DW ordered a pair for DD before Christmas and they are on back order until the end of January.

    DW says DD normally wears a 9, but she wears a 9.5 in ringors. So to Amy's point they tend to run smaller.
