Heart and Sole Sports is a specialty running and walking store for locals, by locals! We are a group of local runners who just wanted to give back to our community, and if you step into our store we hope to make that abundantly clear! obvious.

Our main aim is to get you into the right footwear for you. With so many different shoes out there that are called running shoes, it becomes difficult to figure it out yourself.

That is why we do a video gait analysis in store (for free, of course!) to figure out exactly what you do. Together, we look at the footage, and then we get to see exactly what type of shoes will be the best fit for YOU!

So if you need new running or walking shoes, new clothes to go exercise, or just want to hang out on the couch and talk running, stop on by!

A brief snapshot of some of the shoes we carry. Of course colors and styles change constantly, so stop on by to get fit and see what new stuff we have!


Our whole point is that we are a store by local runners for locals. So we, of course, have tons of local singlets hanging from our ceiling! Our goal is to have every local middle and high school (we are almost there!) as well as any other singlets from schools where our alumni have run.


A small look at some of our apparel, as well as some retro track suits from our staff.
