Minneapolis, MN

Ask for shoes for race walking - not walking. Make sure they offer you a shoe that is flexible in the forefoot and has a low heel. It will probably be a "road flat". This is only shoe store in town where the clerks have any knowledge of what you need as a race walker.

Check out this article on race walking in the Twin Cities in the August 20, 2006 edition of the Saint Paul Pioneer Press. It was published on pages 1 and 2 of the Great Outdoors section. The printed edition had great pictures too.
