From humble beginnings selling running shoes from a trunk to the local running scene back in the early 70's to the Greater Flint Area's largest specialty running store; Bauman's Running & Walking Shop is your one-stop shop for everything Running & Walking.
Our lengthy experience fitting athletic shoes for our customers has made one fact abundantly clear; no matter what techniques or technologies you use to fit the customer there really is no alternative to just trying out all of the top models.
Our huge selection of the top models in specialty running and walking allow us to assess your foot type, body mechanics, and any pain points you're experiencing to recommend a shoe support category. We then give you a "feet-on approach," with all of the very best models in that category. There really is zero alternative to
