We take a very different approach to footwear compared to other run shops. We focus on a form based approach to running. We can all improve our form and become more efficient runners. The collection of shoes we carry is carefully chosen to help encourage a more natural running gait and improve foot function. This philosophy also translates to your everyday footwear which is why we carry several brands of barefoot shoes for athletics and everyday wear. Please swing by one of our shops to discuss how we can help you reduce the pain or discomfort you are experiencing. We stock shoes from Altra, Lems, Brooks, Vivo Barefoot, Salomon, Vasque, Inov8, Hoka One One, On Running, Skechers GoRun, Topo Athletic, Merrell and DynaFit.
Running apparel is challenging…you need it to function well yet still look good. We have put together a collection of brands that aren’t just shoe companies making clothing like most run stores sell. We want to deal with brands that have an expertise in clothing and how it functions through proper design and materials. We don’t sell aspirational items like a limited edition “cap du’jour” or generic products with our logo on it. Function will always take precedence over fashion for our customers. We stock selected styles from Patagonia, Oiselle, Kari Traa, The North Face, Bergans, arc’teryx, Craft and Newline.
Packs & Vests, Etc…
We have the most complete selection of running vests/packs in all of Canada and maybe even all of North America. Most shops pick a brand or two and carry a number of styles from those brands. We deal with almost all the brands and just select the best from each. We stock Salomon, Ultimate Direction, Ultraspire, CamelBak, Osprey, InStinct and Nathan for vests and bottles.
We stock a number of unique accessories including DryMax socks, Dirty Girl Gaiters, Correct Toes, Suunto Compasses, Ultraspire and Black Diamond lights, maps and much more.
You won’t get very far without the right nutrition. We have selected what we think are the very best brands in each category. There is a lot of marketing that influences the decisions most shops make we but aren’t swayed by fancy packaging or novelty flavours…just the good stuff. We stock Tailwind Nutrition, Gu Energy, Honey Stinger, TORQ, Trailbutter, First Endurance Ultragen & Liquid Shot, Hammer Perpetuem, Gels & Endurolytes, Nuun, Fruit2 & 3 and elete.
