Running Stores on Long Island

What’s the most important piece of gear for a runner? Shoes! Of course, running shorts, Body Glide, and GPS watches are great to have, but a good pair of running shoes literally supports your body for thousands of steps during each run. My friends and clients frequently ask where they can get a good pair of shoes. The critical element is that you purchase the right pair of shoes for you and your feet.image1-2

Locally, there are a handful of stores on Long Island that specialize in helping you find both running shoes and gear for your active adventures. When finding new shoes, I strongly suggest a simple gait analysis by an in-store professional; they know the difference between under and over-pronation, what shoes are good if you have a heel strike, and which shoes would be good for trail running.

These are some local stores on Long Island that I recommend for my friends!

Runner’s Edge- Farmingdale

Sayville & Smithtown Running Company

Super Runner’s Shop- Huntington

2nd Wind Running Shoes-Β Setauket-East Setauket

NYC also has many running stores if you live closer to the city! Check out Brooklyn Running Company, JackRabbit Running, ASICS Store, and Super Runner’s Shop also has NYC locations!

Happy Running!
