Not the largest athletic shoes store in Silicon Valley, but when it comes to reputation, Runner's Factory has an edge. For more than 20 years this store has provided some of the best running shoes on the market. The staff is considered to be expert in running technology, so to speak. Locals, who are known to participate in competitions and train day in and out, would agree. Novice runners also stand on solid ground. Come see the selection of high-quality footwear and apparel.
Great place t buy running shoes. Most of the staff are pretty knowledgeable on the various shoe profiles. They will also let you test run any shoe they have in stock. And, if they don't have a shoe in stock, they will often order it for you. A recommended place to shop.
This is a great place to get the right shoe, especially for beginners. I had been running for about nine months when I first went there. I had no idea what kind of shoe was right for me. I tried on probably a dozen shoes, running in most of them while the salesperson watched my ankles. She determined the right kind of shoe, based on how I ran, then gave me several options of similar shoes from various brands. They had a great selection of sizes -- including half sizes, wide, and extra wide widths. The salesperson was very patient and nice, never getting annoyed with having to spend so much time with a total novice runner. I'm sure it's a great place for experienced runners too, given their wide selection, etc. but it was invaluable for a novice... I only gave it a 3/5 in value, since they basically sell their shoes at MSRP. No extra markup or anything, but you can't really say its exceptional value when its the same price you'd find at any other store or online.
