Don from Elite Feet helped me with a new pair of running shoes Saturday morning. The Mizuno Wave Paradox and my initial impression is good. I wore them in the office a couple of days to get a feel for them and took my first run this morning.
They really feel good on my foot, time will tell, but first impressions are very good. I have been remembering to tap tap on the heel. 🙂
Thanks for your help.
I was in a week or so ago with a sore (sharp pain at all times) calf muscle. Craig assisted in my fitting and gave me two or three tips on how to stretch the muscle minimize the pain. I bought two pairs of shoes and followed his advice…. 7 days later, COMPLETELY PAIN FREE!!!!!!!!
I cannot thank you guys enough!
I was at the Overland Park store last week, and was treated like I was the only person in the store (and I wasn’t). Your staff evaluated my gate barefoot, and with my running shoes on. I had been experiencing runner’s knee, and your guy perfectly diagnosed why.
My left foot over-pronates just enough to cause the soreness, and your guy caught it. He showed me two pair of shoes (Brooks & Saucony) that would alleviate the problem. I bought a pair (Saucony Omni 13), and have shave a minute off my pace, and the soreness is gone!
Unbelievable service, worth every penny.
If you are anywhere near Kansas City, and are athletic, go directly to Elite Feet and do not pass “Go”.
I live in Chicago, and I work out several times a week on the treadmill, so shoes are important for joint health. Therefore I always get my shoes from a professional running store, where they fit you.
I was in Overland Park on business recently and had time to kill before my flight, so I went to Elite Feet to replace my dying shoes. I have never had a better experience anywhere!
Owner Leslie, spotted my bad ankle in three paces (without me telling her ahead of time), and brought me 3 pairs of shoes to try. I ended up going with the Sauconys, which were more than I wanted to pay, but I was happy to pay it after having such a great experience here.
Three things I learned from Leslie: (that no other running store had bothered to tell me)
1. How to properly seat my foot into a shoe (tap your heel on the ground a few times)
2. How to tie my shoes so the top of my foot doesn’t hurt ( I had been wearing my shoes loosely tied because tying tight hurt my foot too much. But loose shoes don’t support my bad ankle)
3. That I am an 8.5 instead of an 8!
How could 5 other running stores miss this? The Nottbergs have picked one thing and excelled at it and that is understanding people’s feet and how to find the right shoe for them.
Seriously, if you are anywhere near them, make the trip-you will be so glad you did!
Hello my name is Molly and I was in your store in Overland Park this past Saturday, April 28th. I have never been fitted for shoes and didn’t know what to expect, but I have to say Arthur Esteban went beyond what I was imagining!! He really did an amazing job at reading my feet, my walk, and my comfort level and in turn made me feel more confident in my running the next day at my first race.
I have since been pointing out my shoes to everyone and letting them know where I got them and how they truly have made running even more enjoyable for me. I haven’t had leg pain or hurting feet since I was fitted. I just wanted to let someone there know how much I appreciate your store and how much I appreciated Arthur’s help!
– Thank you again and plan on bringing more business your way,
My wife and I were in your shop Saturday 4/28/2012 and we received incredible service, my wife was fitted for her new shoes and your shop is top notch and I wanted to say Thank You for taking such great care of her.
Thanks again for your great service, my wife and I will spread the work of your shop in our area!
I visited your store for the second time a couple of weeks ago. Once again you have placed me in the perfect shoe!! I feel like I am running in a glove designed perfectly for my feet. I just wanted to take a quick moment to say thank you for the time and dedication that you give every customer that walks through your doors. It is so much more than a business that you are running…you are giving runners like me the opportunity to stay on the roads and to remain healthy. That means more than I can ever put into words. You officially have a lifetime customer in me!
