I first learned about 9th Street Active Feet years ago when I was referred there by a physical therapist. I was not disappointed then and have continued to be pleased. They employ knowledgeable staff who have degrees in exercise science or athletic training. They analyze your feet and your gait in order to find the appropriate shoe for you. They also have a large selection of orthotics. I definitely suggest you check out this store if you are athletic or on your feet a lot.

We needed to have our middle schooler properly fitted for running shoes. Dustin took the time to patiently work with our eleven year old and get a good and comfortable for him. Great service, great product. Highly recommended!

Needed some running shoes that gave me the proper support. I am about 85% flat foot, so my arch falls easy. They set me up with a great pair of shoes and some insoles. I will be going back when my shoes and insoles wear out.

Hello. So my interaction here was brief but wanted to let folks know that if you’re looking for Birkenstocks the guy at the counter informed me that they don’t have them here. Dude didn’t seem super keen on waiting on me but that might just be his personality. Came here to try on Birkenstock sandals because the Birkenstock website listed the place as an authorized retailer, and yet. Not a reality. Three stars bc the guy at the counter seemed SUPER inconvenienced by my presence but again, maybe he’s like that with everyone? 🤷🏻♀️

I went into the store with foot pain from shoes I had bought elsewhere. The gentleman did a great job listening and did not up sell me. I left paying only $20 for insoles. I will definitely buy my shoes from Active Feet in the future.

This store probably can meet casual running needs that running world or whatever people read prescribes. On the other hand, do they have racing flats? No. Do they have racing spikes? No. Do they carry proper winter gear during the winter? No. Do they have split shorts? No. Do they carry any Nike shoes? No. So if you are more than an, "eh, I think I'll run today" type of person, check out other stores or just online. If you're a casual hobbyist then this will probably due just fine. In the end, glad there's a local running store.

I sometimes have to wait a bit . . . but it is always worth the wait. They take the time that's needed with each customer to get the right fit. Future visits are fast, since they keep a record of your fit - but even then, they do a check, since our feet can change even over a short time. I've referred lots of folks to this place, and they all came back happy.
