The key to a good workout all starts with the right pair of shoes. Fleet Feet makes sure Westport’s runners are equipped with the proper sneaker to stay fit.

With over 175 locations across America, Fleet Feet moved to Westport on 10 Sconset Square. Opened on Feb. 14, the store offers runners anything from running shoes and apparel to nutrition tips.

Fleet Feet also sells socks to go along with their sneakers.

“I am so excited to check out Fleet Feet,” Jillian Levin ’21 track team member said. “This store will come in handy for the upcoming season.”

In order to ensure right fit, they use a custom 3-D foot scanning process to give their customer the proper shoes for their feet.

The store sells many different sneaker brands.

“We are the only run-specialty store in the U.S. that provides a 3-D scan of the feet, which helps provide our expert fitters with precise measurements of foot shape and size so they can fit customers with the best shoe possible,” owner of Fleet Feet Dave Wright said.

Not only does the store sell shoes, but they also have a wide variety of running clothes and accessories. They sell athletic clothing like leggings and long sleeve tops, in addition to compression products.
