At Fleet Feet Sports Bend we believe that fit and function for your foot type and fitness regimen are the most important ingredients for finding the right shoe. We offer a wide selection of shoes from various vendors to meet your needs.
We are always “auditioning” new brands and models for a spot on our shoe wall.
Our current shoe wall features models by Adidas, Asics, Brooks, Hoka, Inov-8, Mizuno, Newton, New Balance, Nike, and Saucony.
There really isn't a “Best Shoe” or “Best Brand” for everyone. We believe it is more important to select the right type of shoe and try on several brands to determine which model fits your feet the best. For runners and walkers to avoid injury and perform at their best, the most important piece of equipment is their footwear. That is not just shoes, but a combination of shoes, insoles when necessary, and top quality “technical” socks.
Tips for buying running or walking shoes:
Bring with you any custom prescribed insole you are currently using.
Feel free to bring your old shoes with you and talk to the salesperson about what you liked and disliked about them. The wear pattern may also be worth checking out.
