Check out the Supernova Glide Boost 7 by Adidas, this year's Huntsville Half Marathon sponsor
 

           

 

The all-new boost midsole for the Supernova Glide Boost 7 has an amazingly bouncy feel without being too soft, and that makes for a light, fast and just plain fun run. And with a textile and mesh upper and TORSION SYSTEM support, these shoes breathe well and offer stability in the midfoot to push you past your personal best. Some of the reasons to buy the Supernova:
  • Boost's energy-returning properties keep every step charged with an endless supply of light, fast energy
  • Textile upper with seamless mesh in forefoot for maximum comfort and lightweight flexibility
  • Air mesh lining for maximum breathability and Continental rubber outsole for surefooted grip
  • TORSION SYSTEM for midfoot integrity

Fleet Feet's Bra Whisperer is ready

to help with bra fits

 

 

 

 

No matter what your activity or breast size, a sports bra has become an integral and important piece of apparel. Sports bras are just as important as a properly fit pair of shoes. Fleet Feet Sports in Huntsville offers a selection of high impact sports bras from Moving Comfort, Enell and Nike. The bras we carry are breathable, comfortable, moisture wicking and offer the support that you need. Not all sports bras are created equal, and believe it or not 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra. Not sure if you are wearing the right bra size? Your bra size can fluctuate throughout the years. We recommend being fit annually to make sure you are always in the proper amount of support. Our bra fit process will help you determine which bra and size is right for you. If you would like to set up a bra appointment prior to your visit to guarantee immediate assistance on your visit, please email our "Bra Whisperer," Shirley Hardy at
shirley@fleetfeethuntsville.com.
