First visit to the shop in a long while, but still as good as always. Loads of shoes to try and helpful advice on hand. Trail shoes purchased, two runs and a bit of mud later and I’m really pleased with my purchase. Thanks guys...

Fantastic patience, perseverance, help and advise today as I tried on countless options for my odd shaped feet 🦶. In the end settled on a pair of Brooks assisted by some sensible dedicated running 🏃 socks 🧦, a new lacking technique and elasticated laces.

Amazing service, analysed my gait then based on that picked out 5 pairs of trainers to try. Gave me thinking time and offered to let me try each shoe on the treadmill to make sure my decision was the right one. Will 10000% go back...

Needed an upgrade on my trainers. Really helped having the treadmill and looking at how I actually run.
The sales staffed worked their magic and I walked out with a new pair of Hoka's.
