Best Local Shoe Store

Shu's Idaho Running Company

Readers' Picks

Boiseans who love running but hate the various aches, pains and potential injuries that can come with the sport rejoice in having a store like Shu's Idaho Running Company in town. The staff will analyze your feet with a map that, to the untrained eye, looks a lot like what weather forecasters put on TV, so you get just the right fit. Don't shop if you're feeling lackadaisical--it's nearly impossible to buy shoes at Shu's without taking them on a test sprint around the strip mall first. One trip here, and you may favor your Sauconys over your stilettos. 1758 W. State St., Boise, 208-344-6604,

Second Place: Bandanna Running and Walking,

Third Place: Piece Unique and Shoez,
