Nick Krouse

Senior Manager, Footwear Category

Nick exemplifies Fleet Feet’s core belief that “running changes everything” as he has forged his career here. But Fleet Feet isn’t just how Nick started his career—it’s also how he met his wife, Becca, when she walked into the Fleet Feet Carrboro location in 2009 where Nick worked as a store outfitter.

Flash forward to now, and Nick has become an integral member of the brand management team, where he oversees the development of Fleet Feet’s in-house footwear brand, Karhu, among other responsibilities. After two years of working in the store, Nick joined the then-Quick Start team to help new stores open and hit sales goals in their first two years of business. In addition to Karhu, Nick manages the relationships between Fleet Feet and On Running, Mizuno, HOKA ONE ONE, Altra, Nathan, Gu Energu, Nuun, CEP, and Amphipod.

Originally from a suburb of Boston, Nick now resides in Chapel Hill with Becca and their son, Teddy. A graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill (we’re obligated to say “Go Heels!” after every mention) and former member of their cross country team, Nick crossed the finish line of his first marathon in 2017.
