Owner Jeff Fisher has over 35 years of running experience! He ran track and cross country competitively in high school and college, and continues to participate in area road races. Jeff has been a part of Cleveland's sporting goods and running specialty marketplace for over 25 years. That's a lot of experience with running shoes!
Our unique products show that we have embraced the natural running philosophy. However, we know from experience that every runner is special. That's why we constantly educate ourselves about brands, product innovations, and the physics of running and movement. From barefoot to structured, we speak the language of shoes! Not a runner? Need a good shoe for walking, light hiking, CrossFit, other activities, or just plain old comfort? Our expertise will serve you well!
