A little bit about us

achilles heel opened back in 2000 (yup, we're almost 20) 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, video gait analysis, sports injury clinic, or just professional advice from some friendly people, achilles heel can help make your running better.

5k high fives from the ah... crew. Big up all the NHS heroes working non stop around the clock. We’re sending our love and respect to everyone involved on the front line along with all key workers keeping the country ticking. Run 5, donate 5 and nominate 5 to make a big difference together.
