Sturdy shoes for 7 year old twin boys,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]
Do they only have one pair of everyday shoes each? One pair worn every day will give you fewer wears overall than a pair worn every other day. It's also frequently mentioned that wearing the same pair all the time isn't the best for you feet and legs (I can't cite anything, though).
Two shoes that immediately come to mind that will last longer than running shoes while giving similar performance and style for 7-year-old-boy-related activities are the Nike Dunk and Adidas Samba. They're both fairly low, so lateral movement won't be an issue, and they both usually come with an all-leather upper, for better durability than mesh.
If you buy them at Sears and are a member of the Kidvantage Club, they'll replace anything (clothes or shoes) that wear out before your kids outgrow them. They sell Adidas, Reeboks,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], and Converse, among others.

New Balance. You don't say what size. If adult, I would go with the 574,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], for kids sizes maybe the 993. I have small kid-size feet and I often buy my everyday and running shoes from the or better yet, from their outlet if they've got anything. They have a 100% guarantee and easy look-up without receipt if you are a member, and in the rare event that my Keens or Merrells (both quite sturdy and ridiculously light, maybe not as light as you like) fall apart earlier than I think is fair, I have been able to return or exchange with no problems at all. I mean, it is the kind of easy retail interaction that leaves you stunned and baffled afterward because you can't believe how non-painful it was.

Land's End also offers free replacements of any item of clothing and shoes that your kids destroy before they outgrow. If you get on the e-mail list you can take advantage of all the sales and free shipping opportunities. You can get a foot sizing template and order them right off the website.

Converse All-Stars. I've been wearing them since I was a kid and the average pair lasted at least until I had to move up a size. Even in high school I had a pair that lasted through two seasons of track as well as fencing. The pair I'm wearing now I bought in college about four years ago and has lasted through numerous pick-up rugby games, hiking and general city living wear and tear (including Snowpacolypse and Snowmageddon).
Not bad for forty-five dollar canvas and rubber shoes.

I work with 5-8 year old boys. Several of them wear this brand, which seem to be pretty sturdy,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], have good traction for running, and last awhile. I'm not sure if they're as light as you're looking for, or if velcro is your/their thing. I will say that the velcro is super velcro-ey, which is a big plus (harder to accidentally come undone while running/playing/etc.).
