I'm going to be in Toledo over thanksgiving break, and I'm in need of some new shoes. My latest pair haven't worked out too well, so I'm looking for advice from somebody who knows what they're talking about. What are my best options?

Toledo? We used to drive up to Dave's back when it was nearly the only running store in Ohio many moons ago...

Thanks, both of you. I'll check them out. Anybody have an opinion on which one is my best bet?

I believe Joe the Plumber has a running store and is worried that Obama may tax him out of business.

I would give second sole a try. They are spread throughout the state of ohio and have a great reputation for getting the right shoe for your foot. Plus you cant go wrong with a 2 time olympic trials marathon qualifier giving you advice. Matt folk is the man
been around for a while

Matt Folk is a great, knowledegable guy. Second Sole would be a good choice. I was just in there today and definitely recommend it.

On the other hand, Dave's has been around for a long time in the Toledo area. Luckily their newest store is practically next door to Second Sole so you could probably go to both if you want.

This is a clever form of advertising.

Definitely some advertising going on here.

Thanksgiving is what, 10 weeks away? And you are waiting until then?

As long as we are talking about shoe stores...does Second Sole EVER have your size?

I remember making the trips to Dave's in Delta (and the Big Orange Shoe Shop in West Liberty) back when they truly were the only stores in the state.

2nd sole is the best running show store in this area. The owner and management are very friendly. This store is the best. I was running 24 min 5k, after going to the store i droped down to 22:30. I have to say that going to this store changed my life.
