Fleet Feet Sports Chicago has been the official retail partner of Chicago Endurance Sports since the beginning in 2000. We support the thousands of training members who cross the finish line year after year. Here are seven ways you can support your local running store (us) as the official retail partner of Chicago Endurance Sports.
 
Congratulations. You did it. You signed up to run 26.2 miles. And over the course of the next 18 weeks you will run upwards of 600+ miles.
 
Fleet Feet Sports Chicago has the gear and knowledge to help make those miles memorable for the right reasons. We’ve broken out a list of seven things to help you know your Fleet Feet a little bit better and 10 of our favorite training aids.
 
From your support network at Fleet Feet Sports Chicago, good luck this season.
  

1. Get fit for shoes by our Fit Specialists. We developed FIT ID, a 3D foot-scanning device to find the most comfortable shoe for you.

 
We are now able to get the most precise foot measurements and provide an even better shoe fitting experience that will make each step the most comfortable and properly supported. FIT ID provides a full scan of your feet in five seconds, measuring everything that matters. Using your scan and our expertise, we customize fit solutions for you and it's available at every location and it's free. You can see how FIT ID works here.
 

2.

We have a great loyalty program known as Personal Rewards. Take advantage of it.

 
For every $150 spent in-store, you'll receive $15 to spend on a future purchase. It's easy to sign up, just make a purchase with us or talk to one of our Fit Specialists at the register. You can learn about Personal Rewards here.
 

3.

We have seven Chicagoland locations. Visit us. We don't bite.

 
Each one is staffed by Chicagoland runners that know their stuff. From shoes, to apparel, to sports bras and accessories. Our seven locations can be found here.

We have an amazing staff. Talk to us. We guarantee you it won't be a boring conversation.

 
We think of ourselves as a runner’s magazine in the flesh. Through constant training, education and experience, our team takes elite customer service and pairs it with extensive knowledge of running and running gear to help you be the best runner you can. For example, did you know light massage rolling with an Addaday roller after a run will help you recover faster by helping the muscles realign? Come find out what happens when you roll out before you run.

Our staff works hard to put out timely and relevant content regarding Chicago running news, race discounts, industry-leading gear, updates, and anything that makes running easier for you. Follow them on Facebook hereInstagram here, their blog here, and their newsletter here.
