For Work

Working on your feet is a challenge. Healthcare workers, plant workers, those in the service industry, hairstylists, and others across Kansas City trust The Running Well Store to help them find the perfect shoes & gear to keep them feeling comfortable and energized even after a 10-hour shift.

For Fitness

We’re already passionate about maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and we hope to inspire the same in you. People across all walks of life realize the difference their shoes make to their fitness goals after just one visit to our running store.

For Pain

Often, people discover improper footwear is causing pain—or at least making it worse. We can help identify the correct running and walking gear for your stride, pain points, and lifestyle to get you back to your daily activities in comfort.

For the Run

Running and walking is fun! And just because you do something for fun doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have the right gear. We love helping you find the gear you need to keep the fun times going—and your feet and ankles free from pain or injury.
