Very helpful employees, they were kind and patient with my daughter to find a great shoe for her issues. Spent over a month waiting for the right size that was "definitely coming in soon" after taking home a pair that were a bit too snug. Lost our earned "reward $'s" (aka we spent a lot there already) and the people working have no power to help. Really disappointing experience

They fitted my feet! I tried on maybe 8 different shoes and they found the perfect pair. They measure your foot then watch you run to determine different things (eg. I over pronate when I run, whatever that means). They know what they are doing here. And their prices for shoes seem comparable to big chain stores.

Staff was very helpful. They allow you to try out the shoes by walking outside or running. Very patient staff and friendly. I love both pairs of shoes I got from there.

Excellent customer service and products. Staff really care about the individual and proper equipment. They measure you thoroughly, starting w/the bare foot.

Just went in for the first time to get a new pair of shoes and was instantly greeted and asked what I was looking for. An associate brought me over to the shoes and began their fitting process to test my arches, both sitting and standing to get the best fitting shoe for me. It was clear the staff was knowledgeable on the subject matter and as a veteran runner it was refreshing to talk to someone who could fit me with the riget shoe. She brought me out 3 pairs of shoes, after asking my usual mileage and pace of running, so that I could get a good feel of all the options for my neutral arch and longer distance training. I never felt pressured into buying and felt more confident with my choice leaving that I would have doing it alone. Glad I could support local business over a large chain as well.

Ordered shoes on 06/03/16. Paid for shoes that day. Waited patiently for the shoes to arrive. Finally on 06/18/16 the shoes were delivered. Was excited until I opened the box and seen that they sent me the wrong color shoes. Pulled my receipt out of my wallet to verify and the receipt had the correct color on it but the shoes that were sent were the wrong color. Called the store multiple times over this past week and was told that the shoes shipped. I live within 30 miles of the store and it took 6 days after they supposedly shipped. At this point I am totally unsatisfied with my experience with Up and Running. At least someone could have verified the correct color before shipping the shoes. We'll see how long it takes for Up and Running to make it right. I sure hope they go the extra mile and get the correct shoes delivered in a timely manner.
