I love cardio. No really, it??s true. Over the last few years I have developed an affinity for pushing my heart and lungs to their limits, pushing my body a little further with each work out. I love the adrenaline, I love the feeling of the wind on my face when I run along the East River, and I even love sweating so much that no one would want to touch me with a ten foot pole. Unfortunately, my ankles (specifically my Achilles tendons) do not love me. Being a cardio fanatic has turned the back of my heels into my worst enemy, and it??s a brutal one to have, especially as a runner. After battling this problem a year ago, the podiatrist I saw instructed me to replace my running sneakers every six months. He clearly does not know how much shoes cost, or how much a starving actress/waitress makes. Alas, every six months or so I start to feel an ache in my ankle, which (upon ignoring it) develops into an acute pain every time I lace up my worn out sneakers, ringing out like an annoying alarm. ??REPLACE ME!? I finally buckled down and headed uptown to The Running Company on Third Avenue and 63rd Street. I haven??t been to a running company in over a year, but walking into one for me is like a kid in a candy store, I want to buy everything. After explaining my situation to the very kind salesperson, he picked out a few different shoes for me to try on, watched me walk to decide on my pronation, and then (once I had narrowed my options down to two or three shoes) watched me run on the treadmill in the store. I??m never quite sure what a ??good? fit is supposed to be, but the last two pairs I??ve bought have been Brooks, and I love them. They??re cushy and airy, allowing my feet to breathe while providing excellent support. My boyfriend swears by the Nike Free sneakers, and has been begging me to try them forever. I do really like the way they look (the neon is awesome, especially for my spin class where the instructor turns off the lights and we spin in this small room with black lights and bright neon lights) but I??m not sure what my podiatrist would say. I decided to wait until my next appointment before committing to a new pair of shoes that may worsen my condition. The man who had been helping me was really nice about the fact that he had just spent 20 minutes with me only to not make a sale. Overall my experience here was awesome, and I??ll definitely be back once I make a decision on how best to treat my toes.

TERRIBLE RETURN POLICY -- must return in 14 days!!! Otherwise store credit!! Bought shoes for my boyfriend for his birthday, they didn't fit, went to return 17 days later...they would not budge.

EXPENSIVE -- for this price I expect better service!

UNHELPFUL STAFF -- I had several questions and the guy showed no interest in helping me and/or lacked knowledge...

Basically a "Foot Locker" dressed up like a real running store...but inside it lacks the real benefits of one...service and knowledge.

I'd go somewhere else. Don't know where in the city but Sneaker Factory in Millburn is great.

Large store on the second floor of this mall features running shoes, clothing and accessories for all level runners. And the staff who work here are serious runners themselves, so they know their merchandise and what's best for each customer.
