    Default Quality Running Shoes-Where to Buy?

    What stores in Santiago (preferred) or Santo Domingo sell quality men's and women's running shoes (like New Balance, Nike, Reebok, Adidas, Brooks)? Don't want knock offs & realize we will pay more for the real thing. Any suggestions are most appreciated!

    Better off having someone bring you a pair or order off Amazon.

    Normally I would agree 100%, but I really need to try them on to make sure they fit right - and returning things is a PITA and ultimately could end up costing more than just buying here to start. There has to be someplace that sells athletic shoes on the island - especially in Santiago or Santo Domingo??

    In Santiago, go to the Top floor in Colinas Mall, across from the movie theater...theres a big store there with tonnes of Original Nikes..theres another good store on the same level close to the food court..both have a very nice selection of good runners ( jordans, all nike etc..).

    There is a place in Puerto Plata - down the street (Camino Real) from the Caribe bus station - called Nenos. Went there today and they had tons of trainers - mostly hightops - but only one runner for women (hot pink) and a couple styles for men - I think both were Nike, which would be last choice for us. But maybe that will help you, S1mpleton?
