What’s New


A large part of The Running Place's mission is to support the local community - we do that every day on an individual basis by helping you find a shoe that will help keep you healthy, happy, and active. We also support scores of events throughout the year that benefit our community's schools, charities, and first responders, to name a few.

And in return, we are very grateful to have your support and patronage. Thank you! We appreciate your continued support! As a token of our thanks, visit us on Small Business Saturday and take advantage of some great sales and our Sock Amnesty offering. Also, with any purchase, be entered in a drawing for a Vuori apparel makeover (top and bottom):


On November 25th, be one of the first 50 people to stop in with a pair of your worst worn hoof hosiery, and swap them for a brand-new pair of Feetures socks. If you like the new socks as much as we do, you can stock up by taking advantage of the BUY 3/GET 1 FREE promotion.




The Right Foot Forward Your Experience

At The Running Place, our goal is to ensure that you not only receive the right shoes, but also understand the reasons behind the choice. We provide free consultations, where we perform a gait analysis, inspect your worn out shoes for telling wear patterns, and talk with you about any injury history. All of this information helps us determine what shoe type is best for you.


Every journey begins with the first step. Before you take that first step, make sure you have the right shoes to get you where you are going. There are high arches, flat arches, and all heights in between. Some feet are rigid and some are flexible. There are different categories of shoes - different foot types are more comfortable and perform better in the right category. We will help you determine your foot type and which category best suits your needs.
