This past weekend was definitely one to remember! The Nike Women’s Half Marathon was held in San Francisco Sunday morning and on top of that, Friday was the Grand Opening of our new Fleet Feet Sports SOMA location on 4th and Mission Street.
To celebrate these big events, our new store held quite the celebration! Our 4,500 sq/ft store held vendors of the brands we proudly carry, our training program participants, beloved customers who have supported us throughout the years, our hardworking staff, friends, family and even professional athlete Jordan Hasay! Instead of the usual running outfit, everyone was dressed to the nines with hors d’oeuvres & champagne in hand.
As guests filed through the revolving doors they were greeted with a Nike canvas tote bag and a custom Fleet Feet Sports San Francisco shirt. The celebratory atmosphere was ignited by DJ Ken Fusion and a photo booth corner where guests could pose in their cool Nike kicks. As everyone filed in and got the full tour of the new store, owner Brett took the stage and dedicated a toast to everyone who helped with the development of Fleet Feet Sports SOMA. After raising our special edition Nike Women’s champagne glasses to the toast, mingling, dancing and eating continued!
The new space is decked out with all your running amenities. As you approach the register, you are welcomed with a beautiful map of San Francisco on a background of chalk board paint where all of our future running events and courses will be displayed! We now have four fitting rooms and an entire section dedicated to sports bras and running accessories, including massage tools, nutrition and insoles for your shoes. You can also find lockers in this section where anyone can store their gear safely as they run around the city during store hours. We have an expansive floor filled with various apparel including Under Armour, Nike, Oiselle and Patagonia. Last but certainly not least…the heart of our store…the shoe auditorium! Each shoe is displayed on our beautifully constructed shoe wall where customers can ogle at all of the options.
San Francisco is filled with an enthusiastic running community and we are so excited to be able to spread our love of running to the heart of the city. We have been anticipating the opening of this new location and cannot wait for you to come on by. Stop by the store to chat about all your running needs and keep up to date with all of our events so you can run with us!
