Whether you’re hitting the trails, going for a brisk walk, or training for a marathon, GEAR offers a unique selection of running solutions.
Family Owned and Operated
GEAR Running Store has been serving the Twin Cities and greater metro for over 30 years. Located in Edina's 44th & France neighborhood and less than a mile from the Minneapolis chain of lakes, GEAR has the finest selection of running shoes, apparel and accessories.
GEAR employs many elite athletes, sponsors local races, leads training groups, hosts winning race teams, and is active in community giving. We train each staff member to be friendly, knowledgeable and diligent in finding the right shoe for each customer.
Home of RUN MSP Apparel
Crafted in-house, our RUN MSP shirts are the perfect way to show Twin Cities pride. Printed with water-based inks on super-soft Alternative Apparel.
NEW! Sketchers Performance
Sketchers are gaining traction as a top-notch running shoe: the 2014 Boston Marathon winner, Meb Keflezghi, won wearing a pair. We can't guarantee a top ten finish, but we think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the lightweight construction and unique cushioning.
Free Gait Analysis
When you shop at GEAR, we evaluate your gait and foot type to make sure we find the best solution for your needs. You don't need an appointment--it's just part of our service.
