The specialty retailer will carry running shoes, apparel and related accessories. Fleming says Fleet Feet’s custom shoe-fitting process involves analyzing a customer’s foot and stride by watching them run or walk, either on the sidewalk or in-store treadmill. They also offer videotaped gait analysis. Fleet Feet will also serve as a gathering place for area runners and walkers where group runs and walks will take advantage of the adjacent Greenbelt trail.More details in Tuesday's print edition of the Times-News.
