Best Running Shoes

Achilles Running Shop

With the shoe companies' marketing guys off their leashes, runners are stuck trying to navigate terms like "motion control," "midsole," and "stability." The gang at Achilles Running Shop can explain all that stuff in English -- right after they perform their "gait analysis." Don't worry: No x-rays or coughing is required; they simply recommend the best shoes, based on your foot type and the way you walk. They've got a good selection of brands too. You can even try out your prospective new purchase for a few minutes on the treadmill. 8791 Mentor Ave., Mentor, 440-255-7861,
