These people know shoes and how to fit them..... And they stand behind them if they don't work out. No questions asked. And don't forget to get an ID tag to go on them. They have lots of clothing and accessories, too... Including sport watches....More

This is a great place to buy shoes regardless of your running ability! They take the time to fit you and make sure you will be happy with your purchase. They are also very knowledgeable about events going on in the metro.
