You would think this flagship store located on the 16th Street mall would be expensive, but I've purchased shoes there and spent just as much and less than what I would have paid at another popular sports store in town.
When I went there to buy hiking shoes, I had no idea what would work best. The relaxed and non-pushy salesperson immediately suggested a shoe that I didn't find very attractive. But when it comes to being in the wild, attractiveness doesn't matter. These shoes are great! I still have them today, and I remember the long hike I took when I first wore them - no blisters, no pain... the salesperson was right on.
