    Bought my first ever running shoes today. Rob was really patient, gave me lots of options based on my foot-type, and great advice. Was politely silent when I showed him what shoes I've been running in 🤣. Highly recommend this brilliant local business, and any...

    Thank you for the brilliant service again today!. Tried on my new trail running shoes outside in a Covid safe environment and then got them dirty in the mud in the sunshine. 😊 You’re the Best! 👍

    It’s rare you got to/speak to a retail store where the staff know so much about the products they’re selling.
