These days I’m all about running, but you need the right gear, so I’ve been to all the major and minor league sporting goods stores, and so far City Sports is my all time favorite. They have great prices, super sales, and their selection of sneaks is off the hook. Needless to say I walked away with a sweet new pair of Nike running shoes, as well as some shorts and a new holder for my ipod.
And then when I got to the checkout I signed up for insider program, and I got 5% off my purchase right from the get go – I love that. A couple days later I went back for more, and ended up checking out their yoga gear. They had so much cool stuff that I also picked up a new mat, which was on sale - yay. I also should mention that the staff was friendly and helpful, but they didn’t follow me around while I shopped, which was another huge bonus.

I was so impressed at the level of expertice in the tennis raquet department. I walked in there knowing nothing about tennis - wanting to buy a high-end raquet as a gift for an int/adv player. The guy who worked with me told me everthing I needed to know - explaining terms and reasonings as he went along - also telling me which players on the men's and women's teams used which raquets and strings. I felt no pressure at all to make a purchase and he literally spent about 35 min. with me and my questions. I am still so impressed with how knowledgable the staff was - even after I came home and did some research online. All in all - I have just found my new favorite sports store.

I have such trouble buying sneakers in Manahattan because sports store employees have no idea what they're talking about. And they sell me shoes that hurt my feet and aggrievate my pronating. At City Sports, however, the sales guys knew what they were doing, and even brought out four pairs of shoes that thought might do the trick. So helpful and experienced!

I needed a new pair of running shoes and I wanted the best for my running style. The salesman was so helpful. Out of over 50 pairs of shoes, he picked 3 that would best suit me. He did not push me to buy the most expensive pair (something they do at Paragon!!), but showed me less expensive options BEFORE the top of the line. The variety of products was overwhelming, so his help was invaluable. I very highly recommend going there, especially if you are not sure what you need and don't like being bullied or intimidated by pushy salespeople.
