I found the first store where I bought running shoes ( a small somewhat local running shoe store) from the Runners World website. If you go to their Shoe Finder section there is a link on the left for Store Finder. Here's the link to take you directly there: www.runnersworld.com/store/search/1,7978,s
Then you can find one near you and go check them out! I have had two separate shoe fittings - one at the local store that didn't use any high-tech gear like a video of me running, and one at a RoadRunner Sports store where they had all kinds of high-tech gear like the video and measurements and all kinds of stuff. I got the exact same fitting recommendation both times!!! The thing is that even if you go to a small specialty store, the people working there are runners just like you...they know what they are talking about usually and can tell if you pronate, have high arches, etc. just by watching. So either way - high-tech or no-tech you are usually okay!
I think the #1 thing I can say, is just ask about their return policy because if the shoes aren't working for you, you need to be able to return them and find something that will. Shoe fittings are not an exact science and sometimes once you get out there and start running you find that it doesn't feel quite right. :-)
At any rate - best wishes to you as you begin your transformation into this wonderful, crazy existence of being a runner!!!
