Foot Traffic opened over 11 years ago, we set out to be more than Oregon’s premiere running & walking shoe stores. Our store was founded on the principle that a small business has a far more salient purpose than simply selling great running shoes, apparel & accessories. Our commitment is to the betterment of our fellow runners and walkers and the community they live in.
We strive each day to find ways to improve & enrich the city & state we live in via healthy, fun, and active lifestyles. Whether it’s coaching and organizing youth track and cross country events; donating over a quarter million dollars to non-profits, fire departments, schools, community groups, and more; or simply donating gift products to the local grade school auction, we aim to make the community we’re in that much better.
Foot Traffic offers free, fun, group run/walks 6 days a week! The best way for us to get to know all of you a bit better. THAT’S what a community is all about: Goin’ for a run with your neighbor! Remember, our group runs/walks are for EVERYONE. Walk a 17 min. mile? No problemo! Run at 11 min. pace? Love to have ya! If you’re interested, call any of our four great stores, email DAN@FOOTTRAFFIC.US, or visit our website for more details!
The Portland Galloway Training Program uses the time tested walk/run/walk method championed by Olympian Jeff Galloway. This method involves specific ratios of walking to running customized to your pace and fitness level. This enables individuals of all experience and fitness levels to comfortably train without injury.
The Portland Galloway Training Group is non-competitive and is all about helping each other achieve goals – from just getting out there to completing a Marathon!
