      New Running Store Opens In Austin

      I add the link above because it isn’t impossible for new stores to open. It is just when they do it is news as that isn’t the trend.

      The Amazon Effect, consolidation amongst shoe stores and online specialty sites like Running Warehouse are just 3 reasons I would say no. How do you get your kicks and do you think the end of the local running store scene draws near? Anybody work in the space or have some good insight?

        I wait for Clymb or Leftlane’s yearly sale on Newton’s Gravity.

          I am size 14 so typically a store has no choices. Am a big fan of Running Warehouse.

          If you know what type of shoe you need the selection and pricing is unbeatable.
