Finding your products
We have thousands of products for sale online, so we've provided several ways to help you find your products.
If you have a good idea what you're looking for it should be fairly straight-forward selecting the main category links from the horizontal menu at the top. You can choose from one of six categories:
- Road - a range of road running shoes to suit all runner-types, including supportive, neutral and racing shoes
- Track & Field - shoes suitable from all types of track and field event, including javelin, high jump, long jump, sprinting and other track racing
- Off Road - all types of running shoes for off-road use, including hill and trail running
- Fitness - shoes suitable for walking, like MBTs, Fitflop's and shoes ideal for the gym
- Lifestyle - a range of clothes and shoes ideal for casual wear
- Clothing - a large range of clothing suitable for all types of running, including shorts, vests, tights and jackets
- Accessories - a wide range of running accessories including books, energy foods, hats and gloves, orthotics and supports, running belts and packs, sunglasses, visibility aids, watches and heart rate monitors
Down the left hand side of each category page of products you will see a selection of options to filter the products on display. For example, if you are only looking for size 6 shoes you can specifiy this in the filter menu and we will only show you shoes that we have in stock in that size. The same applies for product prices and shoe types.
The search is especially useful if you are looking for a particular item you already know about. Enter all or part of the product name (e.g. the brand or model) and we'll search our database for matching products.
