We've been buying our running shoes from Fleet Feet for at least the past five years, and the staff at the Capitol Hill store has consistently been super friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. I really appreciate the positive energy and encouragement from Fleet Feet employees!
I don't know the name of the associate who helped me at the Pine/Broadway store in Seattle, but she was awesome... Knew a lot about the shoes/merchandise and was able to make recommendations on experiences being out and active in the region and on what the shoes were made made for and how they were intended to perform. She was awesome and I really appreciated her help.
