Glycerin 17.
Cushioning that goes for miles.

When you run more miles in a week than most people drive, you need a shoe that can keep up. That’s why I train in the Glycerin. It’s comfortable but not too soft. Cushioned, but not overweight. It’s the only shoe that keeps me showing up.

-Des Linden, 2018 Boston Marathon Champion

At Potomac River Running we’ll help you find the perfect shoe.

We look at more than just size. Our fitting process considers many factors to ensure you get the perfect shoe.

1. We start by listening to your goals, running/walking habits and challenges.

2. Next, we size your feet and perform a video analysis to access the contours, length, and width of your foot as well as your specific foot strikes, stride, and biomechanics.

3. Finally, we have you try on different shoes until you find the perfect fit.

More than a running store.
