The Search For The Perfect Fit
Running & Walking Shoes
When you run, forces greater than three to five times your body weight are placed on your feet and dispersed up your leg. Walking and everyday activities can also place enough stress on the foot to cause pain. The correct running/walking shoes can accommodate the needs of individual runners and walkers, resulting in increased comfort and performance. We carry the latest models of the running/walking shoes offered by Brooks, Asics, Saucony, and Adidas. Our store's success is due to our staff's ability to analyze your gait and suggest the proper shoe for your needs.
Orthotics & Inserts
Unfortunately, you cannot wear your running shoes in every situation, but we have you covered! In addition to properly fitted shoes, we offer a range of Orthotics & Inserts to help make any pair of shoes more comfortable. From ¾ to full length sizes, these inserts can be used to address biomechanical issues such as plantar fasciitis, shin splints, tendinitis of the ankles, knees or hips. Come consult with us so that you can find the perfect pair!
Technical Running Socks
Whether you’re looking for something to run a marathon in, want to provide protection and cushioning for the diabetic foot, or just need a comfortable pair of socks to wear everyday, we have a large selection for you to choose from. As the national focus store for Thorlo, we have the largest selection of Thorlo Running, Walking, & Hiking socks. In addition we carry the largest selection of the #1 Running Sock in the world, Balega. If you stop by our shop, a store representative will be more than happy to assist you. Otherwise, you can contact us over the phone with any questions.
