Running shoes usually have logos that evoke the idea of speed, such as a swoosh, a cheetah driving a go-kart, or a child growing up. Be the fastest human you know with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 toward running shoes at Sun & Ski Sports. This Groupon is valid at the locations in Webster, Katy, and Houston and expires on June 24.
Among its trove of sports gear, Sun & Ski Sports stocks running shoes from brands such as ASICS, New Balance, Zoot, and Brooks. Male jog-clogs include the Salomon Xt Wings Trail Running Shoe, which provides the added cushioning needed for running on rugged terrain ($79.93), and the New Balance Mr730 Running Shoe, with color schemes of black/titanium and white/red for metal and peppermint enthusiasts, respectively ($69.98). Women's running shoes include the Mizuno Wave Rider 14 ($99.99) and ASICS Gel 1150 ($74.98), crafted to soften the shock of impacts. Barefoot runners can let their feet breathe within the Puma Women's Complete Infinitus Running Shoe, with a soft lining to cushion human-pads ($47.93). The outdoor outlet also equips adventurers for cycling, camping, snow sports, and water sports, but this Groupon is only valid toward marathon-minded footwear.
Sun & Ski Sports
Since its founding in 1980, Sun & Ski Sports has remained true to its philosophy: “do a few things, but do them better than anybody else.” The shop stocks equipment in five categories of extreme and outdoor activities, including camping, skating, running, bicycling, and water and snow sports. It specializes in these to ensure its merchandise maintains a high standard of quality, and its employees are knowledgeable participants in the sports their department represents.
Bikers can drop off their steeds for tune-ups from certified mechanics who put all brands through the rigors of a 12-point inspection, checking chains and adjusting wobbly pedals and malfunctioning spoke-card motors. While waiting, curious eyes might linger on a North Face two-person tent, a Blackburn Airtower bicycle pump, or a vast selection of shoes from brands such as New Balance and Asics. Men and women can traipse nearly barefoot in the park with Vibram FiveFingers, which offer minimal structural encumbrances for a more natural stride, or cast their feet aside for the new-wheeled prowess that comes with a Fuji SL-1 LE Ultegra performance road bike.
