Our stores have re-opened safely

Our bricks-and-mortar stores in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff have opened their doors again.

We've adopted all the necessary measures to make sure our shops are safe for you and our staff, and we look forward to welcoming you across the threshold – with a pump of hand-sanitising gel!

We are following social distancing in line with government guidelines when serving you. Our team wear face shields whilst they fit you with running shoes and kit. Our store is sanitised regularly during the day and we limit the number of customers in-store to ensure safe distancing. 

We request customers visiting our London and Edinburgh branches to wear a face mask in accordance with local Government rules. Our changing rooms remain open but unwanted items that are tried on will not be returned to the shop floor for 72 hours. Changing rooms are cleaned after each use, as are seats used by our customers.

For those who still need to stay at home we offer Online Gait Analysis so you can head out for your daily exercise in gear that helps you keep running happily and healthily.


The total number of customers permitted in our London store is 7. 

When our shop is near capacity we ask customers to shop alone and any accompanying friends or family make way for other customers to enter.

Appointments are not necessary.


We can accommodate 2 customers in store.
