I have shopped here before and the experience did not disappoint. I am happy overall and there's nothing more I can ask for.

I expected more knowledge from the sales staff about minimalist running shoes, as they are currently a big thing in the running community. The salesperson that helped me didn't know the difference between the various shoes, other than what was popular. I suggest the sales staff take some time on the internet to read some reviews about the differences in the various models and brands...i.e. the height of the various minimalist shoes heels...it doesn't take much time, and it helps to know more than the customer. I knew roughly what I wanted, but I would have thought a store that supposedly caters to actual runners would be more knowledgeable than the sales staff at a local Modells. While I was there, the owner was talking to a Nike rep who was visiting, and he told the rep that if the mid-sole of one of the black Nike shoes was black like the rest of the shoe, they would sell like hotcakes. It sounded to me that they catered more to the fashion conscious than the sports conscious. I also thought it funny that when I asked what the difference between the Nike Free 3s, 5s, and 7s were, the salesperson didn't know...but the Nike rep was standing right behind me! He even asked if the sales staff had any questions while I was there.

Very satisfied.
M Makani II ORDER
They had an attractive price point and worked with me when I found the shoes to be 1/2 size too small, offering me option for refund or exchange when the next shipment came in. I elected for exchange and those too prompltly arrived.
A pleasure to order with you!

I had to get running shoes for my 16 year old and I know nothing about running. The Westchester Road Runner was highly recommended by runners that I knew, so we made the trip from Dutchess County. Wow. The sales woman was fantastic and very patient. My son tried on several styles, she watched his stride with each one and answered all of our questions. He has been thrilled with the shoes and they have helped his running considerably. We will definitely make the 2 hour round trip again for running shoes!

I walked in off the street, needing some running shoes. I walked up to the shoe display, and started looking, but the salesmen told me to take a seat and take my shoes off. I was confused because I didn't even have a pair picked out yet. Then a salesman comes over and asks me to walk around the store so he can evaluate my stride. He crawled down to have his eyes at ground level and size me up. Then went back and grabbed shoes he thought would work well. I tried on a few pair, and ultimately came up with a brand and design I never would have tried on, but they were light, supportive, comfortable and under $100. The sales guy was knowledgeable listened to my needs and responded to them.

It's so shocking when a sales person is willing to get down on the ground when the job calls for it. I was delighted by the attention to detail! All of the sales people were obviously serious runners, not just little Al Bundies.

If you just want to go shopping for fashion, this may not be the store. If you want help with a good running shoe, I highly recommend the Westchester Road Runner.

I live in Dutchess County and travel down to this store because it is the best around!
My husband and I always purchase our running shoes here as well as our triathlon gear. The sales people are extremely helpful. It is a fun place with great atmosphere and a great selection. In fact, the last time I was there the sales woman convinced me to try the less expensive shoe because she thought it fit my foot better. Know what? Its been 3 month and they fit great!

I was urged to purchase expensive $140, new to the market velocy running shoes by a hard sell salesman 2 months ago. They worked fairly well till I went running on the hills the shoes were reportedly made for in Vermont. After some minor hill running my toes were terribly soar and the shoes appeared obviously dented at the toe area. I brought them back to Andy, the manager. This store supposedly prides itself on service but the manager behaved in a completely bazaar manor, insisting that I had some thing "up my sleeve" and somehow dented the shoes myself. He was totally nasty and refused to do anything to help me. DO NOT SHOP THERE!
