Welcome to 9th Street Active Feet

North Carolina's Premier Tech Running Store Since 1989


Who We Are

Opened in 1989, 9th Street Active Feet was Durham's first technical running store. Since our opening, we have made it our mission to provide a personalized shoe buying experience for each and every customer. 

Specializing in personal (and FREE!) gait analyses and shoe fittings, our team at 9th Street Active Feet is well equipped to help you with any ailment or injury. 

We invite you to consult with our highly trained staff before purchasing your next pair of shoes so that we can assist in selecting the perfect pair for you.


Location & Store Hours

Professional, fast, and conveniently located. Please get in touch with any questions you may have about 9th Street Active Feet. We are open Monday-Sunday: 10am-7pm, but you can reach us by email or phone at any time and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Please be in by 6:00 p.m. if you are visiting for a first time fitting, as the process can often times be in depth and take longer than some customers expect.  We do not start any fittings after 6:30 p.m.
