Great service and perfect shoe

I was looking for a pair of trail runners to use for ultralight backpacking and tried on 15 pair of shoes at 4 different stores. The staff at Runner's Alley spent a lot of time with me answering questions and making recommendations. Settled on the Altra Olympus 5 and very happy so far. Doing some hiking with a full backpack and they perform great.
