Welcome to 9th Street Active Feet

North Carolina's Premier Tech Running Store Since 1989



Store Hours

As of today, March 26th, 2020, we will close and remain closed until further notice.  We hope to see all of our loyal customers again soon.


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.

Health Fairs 2020

We are proud to take part in a number of health fairs across the Triangle area every year.  In April we will attend the Duke PRMO health fair in RTP, followed by the Durham County Wellness Fair in downtown Durham.  May will bring us back to Met-Life in RTP.  These fairs help us to get our name out to people who otherwise might think we are just a "running" store, as well as help to improve the overall well-being of employees in our area.  If your business, small or corporate, is having a health fair, contact us to join today.  We would love to attend!
