We take our selection seriously, and continue to challenge our assortment and make certain that we aren't selling anything that we would not purchase for ourselves. Our buyers also work on the sales floor, to help maintain our connection to the customer. We are an outdoor 'chamber of commerce' of sorts, as we have a diverse adventure-loving staff. We know our local trail systems, and can direct you on the best area, considering the weather and your time allowance. Footwear and backpacks require a custom fit to ensure the most fun out of your next adventures. These areas are our core strength, and we take pride in our ability to get fit dialed. Appropriate clothing and accessories are important elements to the comfortable and safe adventure as well. Our selection is continually updated to address current weather trends and shifts in technology. At both of our locations- downtown Boone and Main Street Blowing Rock- we have an Outdoor Outlet. In this area we stock salesman samples and closeout items, the majority of which are current-season and all are found at a great discounted price. Our customers are the most important part of our day, and we hope that you will communicate your needs with us. If you do not find something you're looking for, please let us know so that we can consider updating our selection. We are here to work for you...

Liked selection of hiking & fishing cloths and outdoor equipment, especially knives. Prices ok on cloths (great sale) a bit high on equipment. Good quality. Location was convenient but parking was not good.

I am only writing this in regards to their Kayaking shop. This shop was a general shop. It had a very small selection of kayaks and paddles. I also found it interesting that the person working there did not seem be a kayaker. He did not know much about the sport. Before going here I recommend looking online or shopping... More

We stayed one night in Boone after driving a few hours on the Blue Ridge pkwy. We were planning on leaving early the next morning to head back North, until we read about Footsloggers. We both needed new hiking boots and based on what we read online, this was the place to get boots. We delayed leaving early so we... More

Footsloggers is a phenomenal backpacking outfitter. The manager spent more than an hour with us on more than one occasion to help us get the right items, and they won't sell items they don't believe in. The staff are experienced hikers and backpackers and extremely knowledgeable. You get what you pay for.

There wasn't a place to review the Blowing Rock location, but we love that store, especially with the wonderful Bald Guy coffee shop upstairs!
