You don't get any special treatment here. I brought in old shoes like the website said, no one looked at them. No one asked me to run. they just pulled ugly shoes off the shelf to show me. Might as well just go to Big 5. Believe it or

Unbelievably patient especially for non-runner like me. Knowledgeable? Oh yeah. They look at your old shoes (bring them with you!) watch you walk (barefoot), have you stand up/sit down, etc. They listen to you & what you want. Are you a

I went in late on a Sunday and the salesperson spent an hour with me, bringing me multiple pairs of shoes, putting my insoles into each pair, and letting me run outside to try them out. I finally settled on a pair and used them on dirt

Pros: Salespeople spend quality time with you

Cons: You can probably get the same shoes cheaper online

I love Phidippides! The sales staff is great! They are very helpful and knowledgeable about running. I have ran over 20 marathons with no foot issues. They always fit me in the correct shoe the first time.

The people working here are the WORST! Biggest disappointment ever! I had hopes of Phidippides becoming my go-to running store, but it is filled with the most smug, judgmental, unhelpful sales associates in all of Los Angeles. I am a

Phidippides is an amazing running shop. Seriously. The amount of personal attention and information provided by the staff is unsurpassed. These guys spent a ton of time with me and my son and we are both thrilled with our new shoes.

I can't believe nobody has reviewed this place yet! I just purchased my second pair of running shoes from Phidippides. The service is top-notch; these guys really know what they're talking about. They take time to discuss each individual

Pros: Personal attention, shoe selection, variety of other goodies

Cons: Crowds

A great store for serious and occasional runners. Even if you only job once in a while for exercise, the employees will help you find the right pair of shoes for you. They'll have you try on different shoes and run up and down the sidewalk out front. They don't just put the most expensive shoe on you and tell you it's great. They really know their merchandise and what running does to your body.

My ex is a runner. He did it in high school and college. So to be the best gift giver ever, give your gift recipient something from this store. You cant' go wrong.

This is not like those big chains that are filled with people that dont' know the sport of running and even teach the intricacies of running at local colleges. The people here run marathons, they've run for years. They will assist you in picking out the best sneakers and running gear.

PROS: You can go running in a group after the store closes
CONS: Closed Sunday and Monday

Phidippides in the valley is an extremely cool running store. It is my very favorite running store. The staff know what theyre talking about since they are all distance runners. They dont examine your insole though and just go by what youre telling them this is my only reservation. Overall the staff is nice and the store is well-stocked.

They will work with you until you are completely satisfied! All the staff is very well versed in all aspects of running/fitness, as most (if not all of them) are athlete's themselves. If it takes 10 shoes and 10 tries...........they will stick with you get the right fit, whether or not you walk or run. Additionally, they carry an assortment of accessories and food supplements. if your just starting out, they will point you in the right direction! And, if your a pro (or an elite runner), you'll fit right in as well.

PROS: Very busy!
CONS: Parking is in shopping center; small store
