PATIENT AND HELPFUL – After shopping around for running shoes a lot I ended up at Omega Sports. The first time I talked with a slaes person who explained why my current shoes were probably not a good fit for what I was doing. He suggested a pair out of my exected "brand" range because of the lighter weigth and stability. I hesitated, but tried them out. They ran great for almost 450 miles. My feet did not hurt (not even my arches), until the shoes wore out. Again, I returned to Omega, a different sales guy looked at my worn shoes and suggested a pair after talking with me about my milage and pace. The shoes were fine, but a bit stiff for my liking. SO, after a trail run, and a treadmill run, I went back to talk to any sales person. They were so quick to take the worn shoes and retry anothe pair. The next pair was great. No problem, no issues, just a quick return and repurchase. I was happily off running. I have since only bought my running shoes there. The sales people have either been able to help me or brought someone over who could. I trust them to hear me and fit me, then trust my feet if I need to return/exchange. I never feel like I might be throwing my money away. My shoes fit, even if not he first time! Eventually I end up with a good 300 miles of comfortable running every time. I am on my 6th pair of Omega Sports purchased running shoes, not to mention other paraphanalia.
No expertise – Omega Sports prides itself on being knowledgeable of all aspects of sports. Well, I had a very bad experience when I went to purchase running shoes. I asked the salesman to tell me about various types of shoes and what stability, motion control, and neutral fits mean. He tried to explain it, but it was obvious he was just pulling it out of nowhere. I would of rather had him say, "let me get you someone who knows" instead of BS'ing me. I know alot about running shoes, I am an avid runner. And it always helps to determine the type of salesperson you are speaking with before making a purchase. Honest or disohonest? Knowledgeable or uninformed? I left and came back another time. The second time I went back, I started my spiel again. And again, the salesperson was not knowledgeable about the shoes he was trying to sell. I wanted to try on a pair of running shoes and any reputable running shoe store will take the time to go outside and watch you run. They wouldn't even hear of it! I have purchased shoes from several running shoe stores in my lifetime. Can you imagine making a car purchase and not being allowed to take it for a test spin? I highly don't recommend Omega Sports for running shoes
