On (run on clouds): ON shoes have a HUGE following in Europe and currently compete with the likes of New Balance and Saucony…they are that good. While they are newer to the United States, they know shoes, they know feet, and they make some awesome product. For yourself or someone on your list that is looking for something new and different (not the same ‘ole shoes over and over), give ON a try. We are excited about this new brand of shoes! Try it ON in-store to experience the cloud feeling!
Janji: At Fleet Feet Sports Winston-Salem, we love Africa, we love orphans, and we love helping others. This special brand gives a portion of proceeds to build wells in Africa so that those in need can have clean water. You do realize that we SHOWER IN OUR DRINKING WATER, right? We are so blessed. Janji is a brand with a mission, they make insanely awesome apparel, and they are blessing others. Isn’t that a no brainer? Come on in to see how cool this brand is!
Roll Recovery: Like inflicting pain on yourself? Maybe not, but if you want to workout/run and be ache free you may need to get comfortable with the concept at some point. Self massage is the best way to stay ache free, unless of course you have a big budget for your own personal massage therapist. This new rolling device covers the entire leg, gets deep, and works out all the kinks that start to make your muscles like beef jerky.
Craft: Created in Sweden, this brand has always been the brand of winter Olympic athletes. This is no average apparel….their fabrics are designed to help regulate body temperature and to keep you comfy whether you are running or are at a football game. Their baselayer has always been our favorite baselayer- and many folks in our training programs agree.
Garmin Vivofit jr: Emily & Keith’s daughter Hope (7) is obsessed with her new VivoFit Junior! This mini Garmin gadget is a step tracker, sleep tracker….but best of all you can track your child’s progress on chores through an app on your phone and they earn points. This is essentially Garmin’s version of the FitBit but with the chore tracking feature- which makes it SUPER AWESOME for kids ages 4-10. In store now!
Mizuno Breath Thermo: This stuff is magic!! Breath Thermo has been a favorite of Fleet Feet Sports Winston-Salem for a long time.

If you don’t have anything Breath Thermo in your drawer, you are missing out.
