Time for new shoes!


Whether you're walking to work, training for your next race, or lacing up for a class at your gym - you spend a lot of time on your feet. If you're feet aren't happy, then you're most likely not going to be happy. Wearing higher quality, properly fitting shoes can make a world of difference for your feet. When is the last time you were fitted for a new pair of shoes? If you can't remember, it's time to treat your feet!

Shoe technology is always changing with new materials, styles and even brands coming out each year. We recommend getting fitted for shoes every time you come in for a new pair of shoes or at least once every year. Our shops are open 7 days/week to help keep you moving comfortably. Come in anytime and remember: the most important things when trying on new shoes are the 3 F's: Fit, Feel, and Function. Click here to learn more about our fit process then come in or schedule an appointment to get fitted for running shoes.
