Second Sole, the specialty running shoe store on Lincoln Street, is changing up its style.
But not by too much.
Expect lower prices, as the owners look to offer high-end “closeout” shoes, but now with a slightly different inventory.
Michael Dilisio, the owner of the store, said he’s hoping to cater to the students at Kent State University and Portage County residents.
“We are a running specialty store,” he said. “So we don’t want lose that integrity, but we are setting ourselves apart.”
“At a typical high-end running stores, you’d usually carry expensive products. We’re finding quality products at lower prices.”
Perfect for a college town.
Customers range from the marathon-experienced to novice runners — and everything in between.
The store opened in May 2011, in the space previously occupied by The Exchange.
Most of the six employees — all between the ages of 20 and 24 — at the store are former or current collegiate runners.
There are eight Second Sole locations in Northeast Ohio — the Kent location is the only one switching up its selection.
Second Sole is located at 104 S. Lincoln St.
