    Default running stores

    I did a quick search and did not find anything so here it goes. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a quality running shop in the Pomona or Corona area? I did google it but I cant tell by the web sites which places will help you find shoes that match your feet. thanks in advance.

    If you know your shoe size, zappos is awesome. I think there is a new balance outlet somewhere in ontario off the 15, or at least up that way.

    Closest thing I could find to you.

    They should watch you run barefoot and then suggest shoes for you.

    They should also have you try on different brands and let you run in them a little to see how they feel.

    Typically, you want your running shoes 1/2 size bigger than your street shoes to allow for swelling that occurs when you run.

    Bring your old shoes so they can look at the wear pattern and make sure you're wearing your running socks when you try shoes on.

    Good luck. Be Picky.

    + 100 on a Snails Pace in Brea. They really know their stuff. They were recently rated one of the top running stores in the west by Runner's World magazine.

    Snail's Pace is okay. I like Top Speed better. They are in La Verne, up by Marshall Canyon. Wheeler and Foothill.

    Snail's Pace believes in customer service and that's a rarity these days. I don't know about Top Speed.

    I like the way A Snail's Pace works with you to find shoes that fit YOUR feet. There is one in Laguna and also Huntington as well. I dont know if there is one near Corona/Pomona.
