4 REASONS WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT THESE NEW KIDS SHOES January 22, 2020 18:19

New Kids Shoes from Altra

Yes! We Carry Kids Running Shoes

We're excited about these new kids running shoes from Altra. We've been waiting for years for a really good running shoe for youth, and we're convinced your kids are going to love these. They're called Altra Youth Kokiri and we've got a video to demonstrate how important it is for kids to have the right shoes for them.

4 Reasons to Bring Your Kids In to Try These Shoes

1. GIVE THEIR FEET ROOM TO BREATHE - Kids are growing, and it happens fast! We highly recommend a shoe that's shaped like their foot--like the Altra Youth Kokiri. It's best to avoid any shoes that are narrow or canoe-shaped. Especially don't cram a foot into a shoe that's too small.

2. LEVEL PLATFORM - We think this is important, especially for your growing kids' feet. Having a zero drop shoe with a level platform promotes an effective running stride while building the appropriate muscles in the feet and calves.

3. FLEXIBLE IS BEST - When it comes to kids running shoes, a more flexible shoe is ideal. Avoid a stiff shoe. Your kids feet are still developing, so a flexible running shoe allows for the growth and development taking place in your kids' feet.

4. REMOVABLE SOLE - So often kids outgrow their shoes before the shoe has been worn out. The Altra Youth Kokiri comes in full sizes and has a removable sole to help eliminate this problem. The shoe will last longer because the shoe has an extra sewn-in insole.

Proud to Carry Kids Shoes

Running shoes are an important piece of equipment for athletes of all ages, young and old! We think your kids will love these Altra running shoes. But don't just take our word for it. Come in and have your kids try them on and find out just what they think.

THIS NEW SHOE IS FAST! May 29, 2019 21:24 8 Comments

The All-New Hoka One One Carbon X

 

What Do We Think of This New Shoe?

At St. Pete Running Company, we bring in brands and shoe models we believe in. That means we run in them ourselves. We test every model before it reaches our shelves, and we're so excited to present to you the all-new Hoka One One Carbon X.

 

 

Women's Hoka One One Carbon X

 

Men's Hoka One One Carbon X

 

What We Love About the Hoka One One Carbon X

  1. THIS IS A FAST SHOE! No joke. A 50-mile world record was set with this shoe. St. Pete Running Company Owner Cody Angell took the shoes out for a spin. In his words: "Believe the hype."
  2. BUILT FOR SPEED. The thin carbon fiber plate in the sole runs the whole length of the shoe. Because of this, the shoe bends and snaps back really fast. That helps you toe-off quicker.
  3. THE ROCKER IS STILL HERE. Hoka One One running shoes are known for the midsole rocker and the Carbon X has it. The rocker helps runners and walkers make a faster transition from mid-stance to forward propulsion.
  4. LIGHTWEIGHT SHOE. Although the thicker midsole might throw you off, don't be deceived. This is a lightweight shoe that resembles the featherweight of a track spike. Note: lightweight shoes are ideal for your shorter distance runs.
  5. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE AN ELITE TO RUN FAST IN THESE SHOES. They have a soft but not too mushy rear sole for the heel strikers. This helps make it easier for all stride types to push off the ground faster. The upper practically vanishes while you're wearing the shoes, which makes you forget what's on your feet. We're convinced you'll enjoy this sublimely fast shoe.
