Owner description: Founded in 1971, Footsloggers is the region's first resource for hiking, travel, and backpacking. 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...

“A gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

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.

“We actually went to the one in Blowing Rock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

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!

First the bad, selection is OK. Other than that this places rocks! And whats makes it so good is the staff. They are very helpful and go out of their way to help you out. Very knowledgeable too, I have never been to an outfitter where the staff were as experienced. Prices good too.
