Since 1989, 9th St. Active Feet has been recognized as the pioneer technical running shoe store in the U.S. Our success is attributed to:

  • Valued customer service
  • Thorough evaluation of the lower extremities and feet (gait analysis)
  • Our ability to pair your foot with the proper shoe
  • Providing the correct socks, orthotics, & medical devices
  • College educated staff with degrees in Exercise & Sport Science

We must provide the initial evaluation in-house

After this initial physical evaluation at our store, we can ship any of our shoe products directly to you. You will pay UPS charges only—NO HANDLING FEES.
