There are approximately 9,000 sweat glands in each foot, so the importance of the right sock can not be over emphasized. Look for moisture management fabrics that help pull the sweat away from the skin towards the outlayer of the socks so that the evaporation process is facilitated.

We carry a large selection of moisture management socks and socks that will help keep your feet warm during the cold Rochester winters.

Categories of socks include athletic socks, hiking socks and a great variety of casual and lifestyle socks.

Brands offered include: Smartwool, Balega, Feetures, Thorlos, Injinji.

Footwear Inserts

Our feet were never intended to walk on the flat, paved surfaces that our world has become. Often times, the right insert can work in conjunction with the right shoe to give you better support and shock absorbency.

We carry a wide assortment of footwear insets, from full length inserts to ¾ orthotics to heel pads. We can also guide you into the right type of insert for your foot and bio mechanics.

Brands offered include: Superfeet, Spenco.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow… Because then we can go snowshoeing. Enjoy nature by hitting the trails or parks on snowshoes. The workout is tremendous and anyone can do it.

We have running specific snowshoes, along with recreational hiking snowshoes. We also carry snowshoes for kids.

DIRECT MOUNT SERVICE: Eliminate the binding by having a pair of your shoes directly mounted onto the snowshoe frame. Advantages to Direct Mounting include ease of putting on or taking off the snowshoes, a nice secure feel and lighter weight.

We can typically mount the shoes within 48 hours of you bringing them in. Service cost is $40.00

SNOWSHOE RENTALS: Our rental fee is $20 per day and the first two days can be used toward the purchase of a pair of snowshoes (if made within 30 days of the rental return).
