The mighty shoe has been called the carriage to the foot, a fashion-forward receptacle of phalanges, and the durable bread between our butter heels and bacon sidewalk. Dress your runners with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of running shoes and fitness clothing at The Starting Block's Springfield location.
The Starting Block is the starting block for multi-sport event participants looking for athletic apparel and running shoes from brands such as Asics, Brooks, Saucony, and Adidas. With complimentary video gait analysis, a trained staff member will take video footage of you running or walking, with and without shoes, to assess your floor grapplers in terms of arch, alignment, pronation, how much they resemble a loaf of bread with five olives toothpicked to one end, and more. Armed with newfound knowledge of their stride, runners and walkers may consider outfitting feet with the Brooks Adrenaline GTS11 ($100), Asics Kayano 17 ($140), or the Newton Sir Isaac ($149), a runner based on Newton's Third Law of Motion and his disgust for barefoot wind sprints.
