Ninth Street Active Feet is an institution. They give you fully personalized fittings, help you find exactly the kind of footwear you need. They know their shoes, they know their anatomy. This isn't a place to go to get bargain trainers or fashion sneakers, it's where you go to get quality shoes you'll get the most out of whatever your fitness goals. They are a little short staffed right now, but the staff they have is 10/10.

Staff is trained very well at fitting the shoe you need for your foot. It's a Durham "institution!"

My only concern with this store is that more people don't know about it. I can't recommend coming here enough, especially over all of the other shoe stores with teenagers using "high tech" machines to give you "assessments". My first experience with this store was years ago when I finally forced my mom to get a better pair of shoes for work. She was a home nurse and was constantly on her feet, even with a history of foot and leg problems. Once we arrived, we were given first class service and attention by the staff. My mom ended up going home with what, to this day, she claims were the best pair of shoes and socks she's ever owned. Since then, I've been back almost every year or two for a new pair of running shoes. I used to buy whatever running shoes were available and cheap, but I have bad overpronation (super flat feet) and it caused a lot of pain in my legs and back when I exercised or ran. After my mom's experience, I decided to try getting a nice pair of shoes so that I could enjoy my runs and exercise. Every year I get the same experience. The staff look at my feet, have me stand, walk, run, and do other exercises to determine what my needs are. Every time, no matter what. And, yes, my feet have changed and the shoe recommendations have over the years as well, meaning they really do pay attention and do a true assessment every time. And every year, I get a great pair of running shoes and I haven't had leg or back pain since. The staff are always polite, curious, and willing to help. I believe they all also have some sort of relevant professional education / training, according to the website and the experience you have. I would highly recommend you come here to buy your next pair of shoes, whether they're for exercise, work, or recovery!

Dustin was kind, courteous, professional, and attentive. Very happy with my experience and my purchase! I got running shoes that I'll mostly use for waking because I'm starting to have knee issues at 31. I can tell this is going to be a game changer for my joints! Also snagged some awesome flip flops with arch support and a knee brace. Will definitely be back!

9th Street Active Feet is the go-to place for running shoes. I was fit into the wrong shoes at another local running store, leading to knee pain. The staff at 9th St. Took the time to fit me properly, and put me in a more neutral shoe. After only a few miles I can tell a huge difference. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and they stock lots of options. I don't know why I got fitted somewhere else, but from now on I'm trusting my feet to 9th Street.
