The Starting Block is the first place to visit when you're looking for your next pair of shoes by Etonic, Asics, New Balance, Brooks, Saucony, Mizuno, or Adidas.

The right shoe, which should last for 800 km, must provide you with three things:

  1. Cushioning - the ability to absorb shock. Larger runners need more; smaller or faster runners need less.
  2. Stability - the ability to guide your foot through each step. Flat feet need more; feet with higher arches need less.
  3. Durability - the ability to withstand pounding. Larger runners need more; smaller or faster runners who want light weight and responsiveness need less.

Come in for a complimentary foot analysis by The Starting Block specialists to ensure you find a pair of shoes perfect for your feet!
