Cool running

. September 27, 2012.

Serious athletes and weekend warriors alike now have a store that stocks nearly every clothing item needed for the active lifestyle.
Dave’s Running Shop, at 1765 Tiffin Ave., opened recently just in time for back to school sports. It’s the fourth and latest store run by the Mason family, which opened its first performance footgear store in Delta in 1973.

The store features walking shoes, supportive sandals, running shoes and other sport-specific footwear ranging in sizes from a youth 12 through adult 14 in various narrow, medium and wide widths. Other sizes can be specially ordered. The store also offers insoles, apparel and other incidentals for the active person. In addition, staff can specially fit a shoe to a patron’s needs.

“We properly analyze the fit. We can watch people walk and analyze your gait and then we can recommend a shoe,” said Matt Mason, co-manager of the Findlay store and a family member. “We can read the wear pattern of your current shoe and recommend a shoe. We want to make everything you do more enjoyable for you.”    

Dave’s Running Shop, 1765 Tiffin Ave. Store hours are 11am-7pm Monday through Friday, and 10am to 6pm Saturday. Closed Sunday. 567-525-4767. —RB
