Very knowledgeable, patient and efficient staff named Tai helped me resolve confusion over the type of feet I have and select the best pair. Very impressed and happy with the purchase, even though the color was hard to accept ;).

I was there the Tuesday before Labor day when it was busy with back to school purchases but I felt I got individualized attention. Wasn't rushed and very happy with my purchase. I'm not a runner but wanted a good fitting shoe to work out in gym. Sales person seemed surprised but helped me anyway.

Jennifer was a very professional and helpful saleswoman. She gave me great recommendations based on my running style, personal preferences ad stated needs... Not based on price point. Was already planning next trip back on my way out...

From Our Editors

The staff at Greater Boston Running Company—the Northeast operation of the national and online retailer Running Company—hopes customers are not misled by the name. They’ll custom fit everyone for shoes that support their pursuits, whether they be marathoners, CrossFitters, or a nurse who has to stand all day. The process starts with talking to guests about their average workout or day, followed by a meticulous measuring of their feet. Staffers then have guests walk, jog, or run on a treadmill equipped with slow-motion-capture software, which lets guests see things such as how their arches react when striking and lifting from the ground. Armed with this wealth of information, Greater Boston Running Company’s team can narrow the expansive shoe stock down to just a few recommendations.

Beyond an armory of footwear, Greater Boston Running Company stocks athletic apparel and accessories from brands such as New Balance, Garmin, and SmartWool. This gear is matched by a wealth of educational resources, both online and at the store level. Regularly posted web articles cover topics from how the seasons impact nutritional needs to how rubbing your body in bacon attracts wild animals and boosts your desire to run.

At individual locations, each store’s staff works with local running clubs, high-school teams, and charities—making them especially adept at pointing runners toward fellow runners and trainers who will help them reach their goals.
