Fleet Feet West Lafayette is a locally owned and operated store located in the University Square shopping center. We are committed to enhancing and growing our local running and walking communities by offering specialty products, educational resources, and training opportunities to assist the community in achieving their fitness goals. As we continue to be a vital resource in the community, we are committed to becoming more than just a store people shop at. We want to become a place that the community visits often because they feel comfortable and are truly amazed by the world-class customer service that we provide. We want to be a resource for all of West Lafayette / Lafayette's running and walking needs. We want to be a place that inspires every person, on every day, in every fitness activity they do.
We are a collection of people who share two passions: one for being active, and one for helping others achieve their fitness goals. We hope to share that with you! We run the same roads and races. We have experienced the highs of achieving a goal, and the lows of trying to rebound from an injury. We exist to share that knowledge and wisdom with you, and welcome you to our family!
