Running Lab makes it their priority to help customers match the right shoe to their foot type, so don’t be surprised if you see a treadmill when you step into a Running Lab store.
The interest in running has steadily increased in Malaysia in recent years. Over 12,000 Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2017 race slots were snapped up on the first day of registration, while their individual race slots sold out within 4 days! The number of runners is not limited to just Malaysians – those looking for destination running trails also flock in from around the globe to experience Malaysia’s trails.
With the boom in Malaysia’s running scene, there comes a need to address concerns which runners have as well as to inspire, connect and serve them. Widely recognised in Singapore as the destination for advice, expert opinions and encouragement for runners, Running Lab has brought this revolutionary concept to Malaysia. A specialty running store that is perfectly positioned to serve the needs of aspiring and serious runners, Running Lab currently has two stores in Kuala Lumpur.
Since your feet pound the pavement up to 2,000 times for each kilometre you run, one of the most important aspects of running is a good pair of running shoes. Running shoes are designed to address a wide variety of foot shapes and running gaits and it can be difficult to know which shoes work best for you.
Running Lab makes it their priority to help customers match the right shoe to their foot type, so don’t be surprised if you see a treadmill when you step into a Running Lab store. With their signature Gait Analysis or running style assessment, their friendly retail staff will help you select the right shoes to maximise your performance and reduce the risk of injuries. Both stores feature gender-specific footwear areas which offer exclusive, top-notch footwear brands catering to both male and female runners.One such brand is On, a Swiss running brand which has taken the global running scene by storm and helped numerous top athletes reach new personal bests at world championship events. The revolutionary running footwear was created by three-time World Duathlon Champion and multiple Ironman winner Olivier Bernhard. Malaysians can experience cushioned landing and firm take-off with this award-winning running shoe brand.
Running Lab also carries a variety of running shoe brands such as Saucony, Brooks, Asics, HOKA ONE ONE and Vibram Five Fingers.
Besides the right footwear, runners also need suitable apparel and accessories to protect them from the elements and to make their runs more enjoyable and fuss-free. Running Lab houses a wide range of running gear and accessories, such as Injinji Socks, an anatomically designed toe-sock, which provides blister-prevention, greater stability and more comfort on your runs. Injinji only uses superior fibres that are durable, light, and flexible to offer superior breathability, which means cool, dry, and comfortable feet.
