Our knowledgeable staffers range from weekend warriors to track coaches and elite athletes and can help assess your running style and biomechanical needs to find the right shoes for you. We stock the best everyday trainers for mileage and comfort, lightweight runners for fast-paced workouts and race day, and barefoot styles for the minimalist. If pounding the pavement isn’t your thing, we have a wide selection of trail running shoes that will let you run free on any terrain.

We’ll help you dress for running success as well. We have a full selection of men’s and women’s running apparel to suit all the Bay Area microclimates.

You can find informative articles below and a selection of the brands we carry to the right.
