Glimpse of 847


This shop is great. I went in looking for a new pair of running shoes since the style I wore for several years just wasn’t working out anymore. I couldn’t have asked for better service than I got here- the guy who helped me listened to what I thought I liked and had me try on several pairs of shoes until we found something that felt good and addressed some hip and ankle issues I’m having. He also helped me lace them for my specific foot needs and referred me to some videos for hip strengthening exercises. I’ve run several times in my new shoes and love them. Would definitely go back to this shop!

I had excellent service from Nicole. She was very knowledgeable and asked all the right questions for getting the correct shoe for me. I've been to other stores for shoe fits and this was by far the best experience I have ever had. She took her time and I didn't feel rushed at all in trying out a variety of shoes and ultimately choosing the one that worked best for me.

The wife and husband team that own/run the store is incredible. They’re very attentive to your needs and spent extra time with us to make sure we were happy with our choices. They are very knowledgeable about running shoes and cater to individualized needs. It’s next level customer service. We will definitely come back when it’s time to retire the shoes we purchased and highly recommend the store to others.

They are knowledgeable, helpful and very personable. They have people’s best interest in mind and are not pushy about a specific shoe or brand. Great atmosphere and vibes in the store. Love it!

Just got fitted for new Sauconys and Brooks. Nicole + Kal are the warmest owners and SO supportive of the community. Helped me navigate a foot issue and made sure I’m in the best shoes to keep me from getting re-injured! 🖤

A truly local store with great people and products, a perfect match for downtown Libertyville. The staff has years of running knowledge and everything I needed when I stopped in there. We’ll be back, regular customers for sure.

Just arrived from the East Coast, which was full of running stores that have true running knowledge and experience fitting people based off of their gate. Found a lack of theses types of stores until I found 847 Running Company with Kal and Nicole. They far surpassed my expectations with their experience and knowledge of shoe design, fit and proper runners gate. They took the time to ensure I was running in the best possible shoe by fitting me in different shoe brands. Don’t waste your money and buy online. Support this great local business and you will never be disappointed.
