My wife and I were treated extremely well when we traveled to Des Moines, as I lost my shoes in the airport. We were very happy with our shoe choices and are still wearing the same shoes.

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.
