About achilles heel
achilles heel opened in 2000 and was based in Decourcys Arcade in the West End of Glasgow. We gradually expanded and eventually had to move to the larger premises where we are now located on Great Western Road.
The name achilles heel came about after the owner, Katie ruptured her achilles during a marathon. The name of the shop is a permanent reminder along with the huge scar to go with it.
Whether it's our specialist footwear and running equipment, video gait analysis, sports injury clinic, or just professional advice from some friendly people, achilles heel can help make your running better.....
