Regardless of price, it will be nice to have a knowledgeable staff and specialty store in the area. Ithaca and Syracuse are just too far and ordering online is not always convenient either. I hope this is true!

Thanks for the heads up though!

Fleet Feet in Syracuse. I have found they are generally about $10 more expensive (per pair) than Dick's. If you are looking to take a ride, it is kind of fun to experience real customer service and have them recommend a shoe just for you. You can decide to buy there or not.

yup. It's just rumors though. Apparently a Fleet Feet in the old video store across from No. 5 on the south side.

I agree with Gwen, I love the Shoedog! I actually ended up buying the pair I have now at Famous Footwear (by Old Navy) and they were quite a bit cheaper than Dick's. I got them using the shoedog's suggestion and I'm fairly happy with them.

For my next pair I will get a professional fitting though. I think my feet have changed enough and my mileage is high enough that it will be worth it. For future reference, I have heard rumors that we are getting a running store in Binghamton.

Yes! go to this site: www.shoedog.com Put in your spec's on the left and it will give you at least 3 or 4 shoes.... Take that info and go to Dick's.. mAke sure you're trying on the shoes Mid afternoon.. as that is when you're feet are most swollen...WHen you RUN your feet do swell.. that's probably why your shoes feel tight.. ( or you could be lacing too tight) SO try one some shoes.. ANd i recommend trying on at least a 1/2 size bigger than your normal shoe size... I'm typically a size 6.5 shoe.. But for my running shoes i fit 7's and some 7.5's better depending on brand..

Hope the info helps! :)

Here's a reference to consider.

Don't know how well Dick's provides guidance.

There is a specialty shop in Ithaca:

www.fingerlakesrunningcompany.com/

Hope that helps...!

I have a nice pair of Nike running sneakers, however when I'm running I just don't feel comfortable in them. I feel like they're either pulling too tightly across the top of my feet or I end up feeling like they're too loose. I'm planning to run the Bridge 5K in May and I'm wondering if I should get some "better" sneakers. I don't know of any running places around here that fit you for sneakers..does anyone have any suggestions??

Thanks!
