Best Run For Your Money

RunTex

With an incredibly knowledgeable staff, some of which most likely ran a sixteen-miler before they arrived at work for the day, Run-Tex is so much more than a sneaker store. The help they provide in choosing the right shoe, and the encouragement and advice they give out to all levels of runners makes Run-Tex feel more like an athlete's community center than a retail outlet. They also organize and sponsor local races, and can get runners set up with training groups to help them reach their goals. Best yet, their prices are right. If you trade in your old shoes -- Run-Tex donates them to the homeless -- they'll give you $10 off on a new pair.
