I went there today to find a sports bra. I am a DDD and just started the C25K so jogging was NOT pleasant to say the least. The lady there measured me and gave me 2 sizes to try, then answered the questions I had and even helped me adjust it so it felt comfortable. I will be going there to get a new pair of running shoes. The ones I have now leave blisters on the back of my ankle area because they rub against my skin when I walk/jog.

They had hiking shoes, but I didn't see boots. That doesn't mean they didn't have them. I would call and ask.

I stay on my road and I don't change lanes.

Several people on Spark People advised that I get fitted for good shoes before I start a running program. So, I decided to go to FitNiche at Lakeside Village in Lakeland.

They were wonderful. They "map" your food so they know exactly where you put pressure when you are standing. You can see the red, yellow and blue imprint on the screen. Then they take a video of you walking and running so they can see if and how you "pronate." Once they found that I don't over or under pronate, I'm "neutral," they showed me half a dozen possibilities for shoes. I left there with a pair of Nike Zoom Vomero +5's.
I feel like I'm wearing kid gloves on my feet. I haven't run in them yet. Will probably be this weekend before I'll be able to be out early enough to beat the heat. I'm going to get on the trampoline with them today just to make sure they feel good. I have 15 days to return if for any reason I don't like them.

They thoroughly explained everything, every step, the how's and the why's. They were patient with my numerous questions, very enthusiastic about my plans to go from walking to running. They take their time, you never feel like you're being rushed. The whole process took about half an hour, maybe a bit more. I tried on 4-5 different shoes and walked around in them. There's a treadmill if you want to run in them. I'm so glad I went, it was a great experience.

They also carry clothing, socks, support bras, everything a runner or walker would need. Once you buy something you go in their system and get reward points. I THINK she said $15 credit for every $150 you spend.

Next time you need new shoes, check them out, they are great.
