If you’re looking for a run specialist in Ireland, take a look at The Sports Room Wicklow. Offering everything from run gadgets and accessories to supports and stylish running clothes, it’s our expertise when it comes to running shoes that keeps our customers coming back.


We specialise in fitting running shoes based on your particular needs. We take time to chat, to find out where you run, how far you go, what runners you’re currently wearing. The Sports Room has been open since 2014 and offers running shoes from specialist brands such as Brooks, Hoka One One, Saucony, New Balance and adidas. For those of you into trail running, we also stock Salomon and Inov-8.


In order find the right running shoe for you, we look at your height, weight, leg axis and gait. Using a Currex footdisc , we can establish your arch type too. This is a thermographic foot scan which measures your foot and determines if you have low or high arches. Following a chat, we recommend two to three runners, explaining the technical aspects of each shoe to help you find the right style, fit, cushioning and support. Runners are categorised into neutral, stability, race and with extensive feedback from you, our fit process will ensure you are wearing the right pair. The option to try out different run shoes on our in-store treadmill also helps in the decision process.
