Running is a healthy activity for body and mind, unless it involves jogging while reading baseball star Mark McGwire's first romance novel. Improve your running experience and move on to Mr. McGwire's later works with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of athletic shoes and apparel at The Athlete’s Foot.
Staff members at The Athlete’s Foot stock the store with comfortable running apparel, a wide variety of athletic shoes and accessories, and a wealth of sporty expertise. Customers can peruse the wide selection of men’s and women’s running shoes from brands including Saucony, Brooks, and Asics, such as the women’s Saucony Guide 5 ($99.99) and Brooks Ghost 4 ($99.99). Runners can test gaits with the shop’s Fit Print system, which uses a specially designed, pressure-sensitive pad to determine the best shoe for each bouquet of toes. A video gait analysis also monitors each runner's foot form while in motion. Keep tootsies warm and dry during long runs or quick trips to the sweat lodge with athletic socks such as the Brooks Infiniti quarter socks ($14.99) or the Vitalsox Recovery Sock ($35). Athletes can suit up for a workout with the store’s own Run With Us T-shirt in men’s and women’s sizes ($10), and complement it with a wide variety of running accessories including the Amphipod hydraform water bottle ($23.95) with insulation to keep water as cold as a refrigerator insulated with cucumbers.
