Five Yelpers give the Running Spot an average of 4.5 stars:
- I can not imagine a better place to purchase sneakers. Within minutes, they measure your feet, watch you walk and will give you 3-4 pairs to try on. You're encouraged to run around the store, give them a good test and they don't hard sell the more expensive pair. – Jennifer H., Yelp
- The coolest part about this shop is upstairs--the shoe and running museum. Here you can see hundreds of running shoes from the past thirty or so years… If you've ever wondered if you have a shoe fetish, stop in and find out. – Karina M., Yelp
