Shopping in Mahwah: Fleet Feet Caters to Runners, Walkers and Fitness Enthusiasts

Bergen and Rockland County runners have long considered Fleet Feet of Mahwah to be a one-stop shop for the best running footwear, clothing and accessories in the area.

Fleet Feet Mahwah is a service-oriented running specialty and fitness store located in the A&P Shopping Center at 117 Franklin Turnpike in Mahwah, New Jersey. Owned and operated by Joe and Jill Glotzbier, Fleet Feet Mahwah opened its doors in November of 2002. Since then, they've grown in popularity by assisting runners, walkers, and fitness participants of all levels in finding equipment that properly suits them.

At Fleet Feet Sports, the goal is to promote a healthy and comfortable lifestyle for all people. Whether you are looking for a comfortable pair of sneakers or a productive training program, they really are committed to helping you achieve your goals.

While the store is a magnet for "serious runners" from local running clubs, high schools and colleges, the team at Fleet Feet is particularly adept at helping those who are just beginning a new running, walking or exercise regime. At Fleet Feet Mahwah, they're all about shoes and are obsessed with FIT! They understand that high-quality, well- fitting running shoes, that are appropriate for your gait type, are your most important piece of equipment. They also know how confusing it can be for you to sort through the many brands, models, shapes and sizes that magazines and online retailers flood you with. They'll guide you through their F.I.T. process so that you won't be guessing whether a stability, cushioned or motion control shoe is the type of shoe for you. Whether you're running or walking, they offer a wide selection of shoes to meet your needs.

To be certain they offer the best selection, the Fleet Feet team will actually wear-test and evaluate new styles and brands. Best of all, your new shoes will fit and feel like none you've ever worn before, because your foot will be measured and they'll video analyze your gait.

Fleet Feet Mahwah carries many styles of running shoes by Asics, Adidas, Brooks, Mizuno, New Balance, Nike & Saucony. They also carry kids shoes, by Asics, Brooks and New Balance, beginning with youth sizes 1-6.

Fleet Feet Mahwah also carries the best women’s and men’s technical apparel for running, walking, aerobics, yoga, the gym, or simply just hanging around town. Stop by and try on styles from Asics, Adidas, Brooks, CW-X, Mizuno, New Balance, Nike, Sugoi and Saucony.

Along with operating the business full-time, Joe Glotzbier is also leads the No Boundaries training program, in which he helps beginning runners adopt a healthy lifestyle by training them to run a 5K. Glotzbier has completed 15 marathons including the Boston and New York City marathons, several half marathons and continues to train, despite his gimpy knees.

Jill Glotzbier has run the 2009 & 2010 More Half Marathons, the 2009 Philadelphia half marathon and is a pace group leader for the No Boundaries program.
