I came here looking for a pair with good support for my knee injury and high arch. The staffmember hooked me up with some trusty Asics GT2000's, I just broke them in and can honestly say they felt amazing. The staff have expertise in running and an impressive selection of running shoes/spikes for such a small store. I must mention... More

I called this shop to ask if they stocked my size shoe (size 3) and was advised that they did stock a limited selection of size 3s but that I may well fit a size 4. I was rather skeptical about that advice but visited the shop anyway and they were right! The 3 was too small and the owner... More

The friendly, knowledgeable chap that owns The Runner's Shop found me the perfect kind of shoe for my feet. He started by examining the shoes that he sold me when I first started running (also bought from his shop) and then looked at the way I stand and walk. From this, he was able to bring three different pairs of... More

They didn't have any shoes in my size and persuaded me to buy an oversized shoe which I regretted when I got home. They don't tell you when you make the purchase that they don't do refunds and when you go back they refer you to the tiny writing on the back wall you need a pair of binoculars to... More

I am sorry that you weren't happy and left such a negative review of our business. If I could respond by saying that we pride ourselves on our customer service and stock levels. We carry a large range of men's shoes from UK6-UK13 so am extremely surprised we had nothing in stock in your size. We do not persuade customers... More

I went into the shop today. The first running shop I have ever been in and first time looking for running trainers. He picked a pair out that would suit my style of foot at a cost of £115. I really liked the trainers but when I asked if I could try them on he said was I going to... More

I am sorry you weren't happy with the service you received at my shop. I served you that day and as I recall you didn't come in to the shop looking for new running shoes, but rather some advice as to why you were having problems with shoes you had bought online. You wanted my advice as to whether they... More

The best shop in the Bromley/Beckenham area for the running enthusiast. Checkpoint 1 for the regular runner should be to invest in the right shoes. The range on the market is a little overwhelming, particularly if you have a non-standard action or are susceptible to injury. The owner here will spend 10-15 minutes with you to examine your stride and... More

Have used this shop for the past two years now. The sales staff are extremely knowledgeable and have always helped in choosing the right shoe (not trying to sell the most expensive one). They have always had the size I wanted in stock, which for a fairly small outlet is always a positive. They will always have my business

This shop really concentrates how you run before selling you anything. They also stock all different shoes and accessories, I know that my friends travel along way to visit and get new shoes.
