Our Process

We make running easy through a simple three-step process.

   •   Process

Process

1

Tell Us Your Story

There are two stories we want to know. One is a story of your running history and future aspirations. This includes your current mileage, prior running injuries/issues, and future goals —if any beyond the pure enjoyment of living a healthy lifestyle. The second story we want to know is your biomechanical story. From there we’ll guide you in the right direction by narrowing down to a curated selection of shoes just for you.

Your running story is personal. It matters.

2

Feel The Sensation

As you briefly run in-store in the shoes we’ve curated for you, we’re going to help you identify what feels best. You may like a cushy shoe or prefer a more firm shoe. There’s no wrong answer. And, we’ll make sure the models you try work for your biomechanics. During the process we may also give you a few pointers on your running form.

Get ready to feel the sensation.

3

Let ‘Em Ride

You have 90 days from the date of purchase to run-in your new shoes. If you don’t like them for any reason during that time bring them back and we’ll give you full store credit towards a new pair of shoes. We ask you to trust yourself. Sometimes a shoe that felt great in the store just doesn’t feel as good after putting some miles in. In that case, we’ve got your back.

So get out and run worry-free!*

*One return per rewards account per year from the orignal point of purchase. Store credit must be redeemed at point of returned shoes.

Ready. Set. Start Here.

Today Clint and Andrea celebrate their 12 year anniversary of co-owning @duluthrunningco. They bought the store at the ripe ages of 24 and 22 years old. One expansion, multiple companies, countless events, two kids, and thousands upon thousands of shoes later... they’re grateful for the community that’s taken this ride with them. Thanks for all the support over the years and we look forward to many more years to come. #runduluth #12yearsandcounting 📸: @janecanephotography
