This store is hands down the best place to buy your running shoes in Austin. I have been to several other stores but always return here to actually buy something. That happens largely because the other stores fail for one reason or another. This store maintains a high quality of staff and and large selection. If they don't have your... More

They take the time to make sure you are getting the right shoe with the right fit. And, that doesn't mean the most expensive. hey also understand the difference between a running shoe, a walking shoe and a cross-trainer. A degree of service which is rare these days, without grossly exaggerated pricing.

Blech. Terrible customer service. Which is NOT typical for a local shop in Austin. After meeting the owner (twice), I believe his arrogant/entitled attitude must trickle down to the employees. He seems to try to cover his materialistic nature with empty attempts to "give back" to the community. Augh. Please. His sponsorships and "humanitarian" efforts scream "free marketing!" to me.

This store, and it's owner Paul Carrozza, has done more for Austin running than anyone or any group. They continue to support everything running and have spun off businesses that do the same in cities around the country. Trained staff will help you with shoe selction. The only place to spend your running money in Austin.

Buy your shoes where the staff isn't rude and the costs are 50% lower. An inexplicably popular place despite countless stories of rudeness by sales staff.

Ok can not put my finger on the day we were there last. We use to go to the one downtown. My hubby use to get his shoes there. They really give you attention to detail on what your feet need. He always loved his purchases.
