Steve has created a great resource for runners and athletes in southern Utah. He always has knowledgeable staff members that can fit the right shoe for the activity regardless of the fitness level. I feel comfortable sending my patients there because I know that they understand gait mechanics.
I am a rather large guy and have dealt with foot problems for a long time due to neuropathy in my feet caused by a back injury years ago. Well I finally was able to get my foot problem healed up and decided to start an exercise program to help loose weight. I have never been much of a runner but after living here in Santa Clara for the past year, I decided that running/jogging is the path for me. I needed a good pair of shoes to help me on my journey and the first place I called was the Running Center. I talked with an awesome salesperson by the name of Wes, who was more than helpful over the phone. So I came into the store and was given wonderful personal attention to my needs. I have been wearing a size 13 for years and they informed me that I should have been wearing a size 14 ee. I could say that I was a little skeptical but the level of expertise that these guys have was enough that I said, let's give em a try. They were right of course. What a difference having the right shoe size makes. They set me up with a pair of Brooks Beasts that feel amazing and look awesome. My family wasted no time after making the purchase to try them out on a two mile walk/jog. I love the shoes and can't thank Wes and the guys at the St. George Running Center enough. I will definitely be back.
I've been to running stores in Orem and Provo and none were as nice as they were here. The guy helping me really took his time to listen to everything that I said and let me try on tons of shoes and was always super patient with me. He helped me make a selection and gave me some stuff to try to help with shin splints. I will definitely go back if I need any further running supplies.
