Founded in 1971, Footsloggers is the region's first resource for hiking, travel, and backpacking. We take our selection seriously, and continue to challenge our assortment and make certain that we aren't selling anything that we would not purchase for ourselves. Our buyers also work on the sales floor, to help maintain our connection to the customer.

We are an outdoor 'chamber of commerce' of sorts, as we have a diverse adventure-loving staff. We know our local trail systems, and can direct you on the best area, considering the weather and your time allowance.

Footwear and backpacks require a custom fit to ensure the most fun out of your next adventures. These areas are our core strength, and we take pride in our ability to get fit dialed. Appropriate clothing and accessories are important elements to the comfortable and safe adventure as well. Our selection is continually updated to address current weather trends and shifts in technology.

At both of our locations- downtown Boone and Main Street Blowing Rock- we have an Outdoor Outlet. In this area we stock salesman samples and closeout items, the majority of which are current-season and all are found at a great discounted price.

Our customers are the most important part of our day, and we hope that you will communicate your needs with us. If you do not find something you're looking for, please let us know so that we can consider updating our selection. We are here to work for you...

It was a beautiful place. I would mover there tomorrow. Everyone was extremely nice. The little shops and cafes were incredible. Outdoors is absolutely gorgeous.

Boone is a mountain town with lots of outdoor recreation around. Footsloggers is the main camping/hiking/climbing/travel gear store in town. They have a fun outdoor climbing wall with lots of interesting features on it. Nice view of town from the top of the climbs. There is a rock climbing guide service for lessons and daytrips.

We had a great time with Chad climbing the natural rock face! He was incredible with every level of climber in the group! Explained to and directed each individual with great patience. Fun and yet very professional.

We stopped at Footslogger's in Blowing Rock, NC. Brian, the Footslogger's manager was a great help. He directed us to several area hiking spots and gave us a lot of good info. We are from Texas, and are here to sightsee and hike a lot of trails. Footslogger's has good prices on their equipment that they have available. Thanks Brian... More

I have been to many similar outfitter type stores and I found this one to be pretty standard in terms of stock and layout as well as prices (which are really very high on many items). The store in Boone is neat because of the climbing walls in the center and one of the guys working there was very friendly... More

We were very impressed with the selection and courtesy of the staff. We decided to do the discovery course which is a giant obstacle course.....awesome. Our guide Ryan couldn't have been nicer and it was a lot of fun with our family. Highly recommend for the outdoor adventure type.

Great selection of outdoor gear and apparel. Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. Coffee shop upstairs is a nice touch. They allow dogs inside the store which is amazing!

It was my sons day to do something and he wanted to climb the wall. It was an amazing experience. The 40 foot wall was the highest ever for him. The employees are so nice and friendly, as well as helpful and knowledgeable. Thanks for helping my son have a great day. He will be back.

Thank Linda N
