WE MATCH YOUR FEET
WITH THE BEST SHOES FOR YOU

Find the right fit and the best shoe for your next pair of sneakers.

Don’t settle for ads, online reviews or a friend’s recommendation, when your feet are unique to you.

Our philosophy is that comfort matters most and we consider ourselves expert comfort-finders. We pick shoes for your to try on based on your activity, your body and your style.

We use old-fashioned methods: we measure your feet, select the shoes, shoe-horn them onto your feet, and tie them. Then we repeat that until we find your perfect fit.

WE KNOW THE IMPORTANCE
OF THE RIGHT FIT

Sometimes finding the right fit means adjusting the shoes themselves or simply knowing what is right for the feet that will be wearing them. We trim insoles, match wide feet to wide sneakers, put some people in sneakers with higher heels and others into nearly flat shoes, give women’s sneakers to guys with small feet, give men’s sneakers to women with big feet, put some feet into cushioned shoes and others into firm shoes…whatever it takes. Physical therapists, foot doctors and chiropractors refer their patients to us. So, we’ve got you covered. You’ll do more standing, walking and running in shoes that fit.

EXPECT GREAT SERVICE
AND NO SALES PITCH

When you come in to get fitted, you’ll have our full attention. We work with you until you find the right shoe for you. With each pair, we encourage you to take them for a test drive on the turf or a treadmill at The Training Station Gym right behind our store.

We’re going to give you options, and if the choices ever feel overwhelming, we’ll point out the shoe that’s best for you. (Hint: it’s the one that’s the most comfortable.)

While we’re a shoe store, and we sell shoes, there will be no hard sales pitch and no technical jargon. We don’t want you to feel pressure to buy something that’s not right, and in the end, that’s up to you to decide.

WHEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY SNEAKERS

If you’re using your shoes regularly, they should be replaced every 3-6 months. When you shop at Run Shoe Store, we keep a record of every pair you’ve ever purchased, so you can rotate back in styles that have fit well in the past.
