About The Shop
Fleet Feet Boulder has been a staple in the Boulder running community for over 17 years. Independently and locally owned, Fleet Feet Boulder offers exemplary customer service, expert gait analysis and shoe fittings to identify the right running or walking shoe for our guests. Our staff works incredibly hard to provide Boulder and the surrounding areas unmatched service when it comes to our guests’ running and performance needs.
Fleet Feet Boulder is actively involved in numerous community outreach programs and charity events. The store also strives to offer plenty of social and training opportunities for runners of all abilities. Whether it is participating in one of our training groups, a community run from the store or from Avery Brewing Company followed by a beer, Lee wants everyone to feel welcome in the shop and to be part of his Fleet Feet family!
