FootWorks has always been a Family Business, not just with the three generation of Huseby family members who have worked here. But also our Running Family, who have brought their family, friends and loved ones to get geared up to stay fit.
Where Runners Feel at Home
Located at 5724 Sunset Drive in South Miami, and still proudly displaying our orange and green neon “FootWorks” sign. Over our 41 year history, we have expanded and remodeled our original store that has always been at this same address. The same friendly people are here and they’ll help you to choose the right shoe for your running. The store has developed into the perfect Running Headquarters that we can display our wide selection of shoes, clothing, accessories and nutritional products – while allowing space for race packet pickup, group run gathering spot and fitness classes.
Miami’s Running Headquarters since 1976
FootWorks took root as an Earth Shoe store in 1973. In 1976, store-owners and runners Hans and Laurie Huseby realized many of their healthy patrons were also runners and that there was an existing void in running retail. Filling the void became their mission and making runners feel at home was their objective.
FootWorks has evolved as the unofficial South Florida runners’ headquarters, and for more than 20 years Hans and Laurie have spearheaded the growth of the local running scene. Their efforts have ranged from organizing Sunday morning fun runs and helping found the Miami Runners Club to directing and producing road races such as the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run Series.
Weekly Fun Runs and Melt Method
In addition to the Full and Half Marathon Training Programs and Fitness 101 for beginners, we offer FREE Fun Runs from the store Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30pm. All paces and levels are welcome to run / walk on the safe and quit 3.7-mile course through the South Miami residential neighborhood. We also offer Melt Method every Sunday at 10am, $10 per person (class size is limited to 20 participants). Learn how to reduce the risk of injury, promote recovery and improve overall performance – a perfect addition to your run, walk and fitness program.
Packet Pickup and Race Headquarters
We serve as the race headquarters for Miami’s best and most popular run / walk events. Our convenient central location and hours make it easy for participants to swing by and pick up their race packet, while stocking up on nutritional products, accessories or checking out the newest shoe styles and colorful workout gear.
