Our Story

Achilles Heel opened back in 2000 (yup, we're 20+ years old) with one goal in mind -  to create an all inclusive hub for runners, supplying globally sourced, tried & tested, quality running kit within Glasgow.

The name 'Achilles Heel' came about after our founder, Katie ruptured her achilles during Edinburgh marathon. The name of the store is a permanent reminder along with the huge scar to go with it.

Whether it's our extensive range of footwear and running kit, gait analysis, sports injury clinic, or just professional advice from some friendly people, Achilles Heel can help make your running better.
