I've tried to do an online search to find a store in Oklahoma City where I can go and be fitted for shoes but I'm not finding much luck. I would like to get me a good pair since I'm going to be there this weekend. Any advice or store names that would be good.
TIA.

I highly recommend Fleet Feet. It looks like there's one in Tulsa and in Edmond -- are you near either city?

Fleet Feet is the one who sponsored the 5k I participated in Saturday. I had hoped to go there in Tulsa but wasn't able to. Edmond isn't too far from the City but I'm not sure if we can swing it. I'm going for a conference for work with 4 other women. I was hoping to find something close that we could swing in addition to the Bombing Memorial Site.

Edited: Cool. It looks like the Edmond store is just 15 minutes from the Hotel. I'll ask the boss when she gets back in and see if we can swing it Friday afternoon before dinner or Saturday before we head back. If not I can always get a taxi to take me

Runner's World has a list of running shoes stores here, but it's dated 2001 so I'm not sure how current it is. It has this store listed in Oklahoma City:

THE RUNNER

9644 N. May Ave.

Oklahoma City, OK 73120-2714

Phone: (405) 755-8888

If you can't get to a store, call roadrunner sports or order from roadrunnersports.com and they let you exchange the shoes if they don't work out.
