“Setting the pace . . . ”

Image provided by jscreationzs You can buy shoes most anywhere. So what you are really paying for is service. Pace Setter Athletic is "setting the pace" for customer service.

No Price Jacking

Compare pricing. All our shoes are priced at Manufacturers Suggested Retail. Pace Setter does not increase shoe prices in order to cover loyalty discounts or special sale events.


As suggested I brought my last two pairs of running shoes in and the staff at pace setters was, those suck and here's why....which might explain why my feet hurt after running. I loved the experience, the shoes, and the 50% off I got on my jacket.


As always, the folks at Pace Setter were helpful and attentive. They pointed out where the structure of my old shoes had finally failed from overuse -- make sure you bring your old shoes with you when you come to Pace Setter! -- and explained how the model of shoe they recommended was sturdier at those points of failure. Allow me to close this review with a plea: Folks, if you walk a lot, do not go 18 months between buying new walking shoes. Just do not do it. Go to Pace Setter every six months, bring $100 for the shoes, and let them take care of you.

True Visual Bi-Directional Gait Analysis

We use a true visual bi-directional gait analysis in each style you try on to determine your level of pronation or supination which narrows the category of shoes appropriate for you. No gimmicks or high-tech equipment. Just a lot of knowledge and experience.








Shoe Review

Please bring your old shoes with you to a fitting. Through analyzing the wear patterns of the tread and upper on your old shoes, evaluating the shape of your foot and arch as well as conducting a walk/run gait analysis, we will be able to properly fit you in new walking or running shoes.







Customer Satisfaction

If you are not completely satisfied with your shoe selection you may exchange or return your shoes in pristine condition within 30 days with your receipt and the box and materials provided.
